Hello there,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Please note, I am just a moderator for this category, I can only try and find experts to help, I can't answer the question itself.

Thank you!

Dear *****,

I am happy to wait longer for an answer, I note I did not tell you the make of the satellite box it is Technomate.

Thank you for your patience,


Hi David,
My name is ***** ***** I will help with your question. I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with the receiver.
I am sorry but it sounds as if the power supply might have failed in the box or there is a software issue with the box. Have you tried unplugging the box from the wall for several minutes then trying the box again.
Could you let me know what happens if the box comes back to life. I have looked and firmware is available for the box so we could look at maybe upgrading the firmware to see if that fixes the issue

Thank you for help, I had a feeling it was the power supply, having experienced this type of problem before, however I will see if I can get it repaired cheaply, if not I will replace it.

Yours sincerely
