    Hi there, I've got the Amstrad sky digibox Model No:3.bc.02 it's about 3 years old, what's happening lately is that when I turn it on from standby the light flashes but it doesn't come on but after a while it does come on but then I can hear the noise but no Picture!!!, is the Digi box telling me it's time to buy a new one.

    The earlier Amstrads do have more than their fair share of problems with their PSU and tuners.
    Certainly worth giving SKY a ring and paying them £60 for a call out, worse case is that they repair the digibox barring that they will replace it with a refurbished model or a brand new one all for the £60.

    Nothing stopping you buying a brand new box from SKY or another retailer but unless you want a specific digibox then I would go the call out from SKY route.

    Beware, you will probably get another refurbished Amstrad box for your £60 tho'.
