Ferguson F3090, Just stopped on me suddenly and went to red standby button and freeview didibox went to off at same time. Now I turn on start button and red led comes on, then begins to flicker, Turning on freeview box makes no difference, screen is dead.
Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question!Were the Ferguson and the Freeview both plugged in to the same power source? Are they on a surge protector of any kind or direct in to the wall?

What happpenedd was I was watching Channel 34 on freeview , and the suddenly the screen went blank (dead ) and both grren lights turned to red and i couldn't get it started again, Regualr plug in for both to wall

on an extension lead, as it's been for years.

Sorry to hear that...was there any sort of power fluctuation at the time? Something that could have caused a surge?
Afraid the Ferguson might be fried based on your description, have you tried plugging the freeview box in to another TV to see if it is still working?
