Nothing but a blue screen


Standard Member
I've tried searching for the answer, but there's rather a lot of threads that come back, so after at least 15 mins of searching....

I get a blue screen when I switch on sky+, thats all. doesn't matter when I'm in services, programmes, menus, etc. I get sound but no picture. I've switched off at the wall, and its still the same - if someone can remind me how to do a reset, I'll try that...

Personally I think its a ploy by Chelsea as the last thing watched on it was the ManU v Arsenal game last night! ;)

I had this yesterday, scenario was!
Watching Cars mid afternoon when we had a heavy rainstorm, lost signal completely but eventually came back on, continued to watch till the end of the film when I went to change the channel, at this point the screen went blue and the remote wouldn't control the sky receiver at all, although the green light would come on when i tried.

Had a quick look here and found the answer, by unplugging the receiver and disconnecting the LNB cables and leaving for a short time, reconnected everything and all worked well.
However looking at other peoples experiences it would seem that the blue screen could be attributed to different faults and what fixes it for some might not for others.
