Sky+ Flickering Red Light :(


Standard Member
Hi all,

My sky+ box was placed into standby overnight and upon waking up, the box's power indicator just flashes red.

It will not power on and doesn't recognise the buttons being pressed on the remote indicator on the front.

Now after doing research on the net, it seems to be bust lol. I tried all the forced updates and resets etc. and they aren't working.

Now, I would appreciate some advice etc. from people who think they'll be able to help or have experience same problem.

I have to possible thoughts:
1) Could it be a faulty power supply? I read someone saying this on another forum.


2) Faulty hard drive? If this is the case, what road can I go down. Is it simple enough to replace? And how much does this cost?
