    Has anyone else had an issue with the LCD on their humax 9300t PVR? my display has stopped displaying all together. (It usually shows the time when in stand by and channel title when in use). I'm thinking of reloading the firmware to ascertain if it is a hardware fault or not? does anyone have any other ideas? thanks in advance.

    Either the display has failed, or one of its supplies, or the drive electronics, or the software has corrupted.

    First step is to eliminate all possible glitches by giving it a mains reset. Disconnect from the mains for at least 15 minutes.

    If the problem remains after that, it is more serious and would require proper investigation.

    Gavtech,

    Thanks for your reply, I'll try a 15 minute power off tonight but I suspect I'll be trying a firmware reload shortly after that. do you have knowledge on how best to do that?

    Sorry - I have no direct experience of this machine, but I will move this thread into the PVR section.

    Some of the contributors there may be able to help.
