Stuck in standby


Distinguished Member
Got a problem with my box when I woke up this morning the fan was on full pelt even though the box was in standby and hadnt been scheduled to record anything overnight.

It was making a real noise so unplugged the box from the wall, left it a couple of mins and plugged it back into the mains but now I cant get it off standby.

Have plugged and unplugged it a few times but no change at all....

Any ideas? :confused:

try holding your finger on the backup button.or leave it switched off for 30 mins.also it could be the viewing card.

i had this same prob the first day i had it (last sat) I did the usual, unplugged for 30 secs, cleaned viewing card left off for 1 hr, hit it etc. So i phoned up sky after a while and i spoke to bloke who said ill transfer you to hd tecnical and as the music started playing it came on. so i put the phone down.

Hasnt happened since though
