Digibox Problems

A Digibox is a form of device that allows its viewers to receive digital satellite television broadcasts and internet services. It is a satellite TV provider that is British based and therefore cannot be used in the U.S. Below are frequent asked questions on issues relating to Digibox Problems that has been answered by the Experts.

My Mitsubishi TV is connected to Freeview Digibox. However, my Digibox displays a message, ‘OTA searching in progress...Exit: cancel OTA’. What is the problem here?

Usually, these are very common Digibox problems. In order to fix this issue all you would need to do is disconnect the Digibox from the wall socket first. You should do the unplugging while it is turned on. Then you would have to leave it disconnected for about ten minutes and after you have done that you could connect it back. This should fix this problem.

The standby light on the front of my Sony Sky Digibox is lit red, when I turn on the box. The light stays lit no matter what I do. My television doesn’t function through the Skybox. What should I do?

To begin with, the first thing that you would need to do to cure this problem is disconnect the unit for about an hour or more. This would help to perform a power reset within the unit. Therefore, if there is no failure in the component inside the unit, this procedure should be able to fix this issue. Now, in a case like this, if the unit is not under the manufacturer’s warranty, it would be a better idea for you to either have it replaced or repaired. However, you must know that this model is very commonly known for its power supply problems.

The programs and channels on my Sky Grundig Digibox box are going off one after another. I have powered the box off and switched it on again after thirty seconds. But nothing happened. How can I fix this problem?

In order to fix this issue, what you would need to do first is press the Services button on the Sky remote. Then you would have to press the buttons Four, Zero and One on the remote respectively followed by pressing the Select button. After that you should press the button One on the remote. Pressing this button would take you to the RF Output Menu. Now, to highlight the line ‘22Khz Command’, you would have to press the Down button thrice and then the Right button to change the value to Off mode. After that, you would need to press the Down button again and then the Select button to choose ‘Save New Settings’ option. Lastly, you would need to press the Sky button.

Now to get to the LNB Menu, you would need to press the same series of buttons on the remote one more time; first Services, then Four, Zero and One and then Select. After that you would have to press the button One to go to the LNB Menu. This time you would however, need to press the red button to reset all the settings and then scroll down the options to select ‘Save New Settings’. Finally, you would have to press the Sky button like earlier. This would perform a complete reset on the box and should fix the problem as well.

I am unable to reset the channels on my Samsung Digibox after the digital switchover. I have tried resetting and updating the channels as well as moving the box location. But the signal strength is not so good. How can I fix this?

It is most likely the box has become obsolete in this case. The reason this has happened could be due to numerous changes to the transmission that has taken place because of the digital switchover. Therefore, in a situation like this, the box would no longer be compatible with 2k COFDM, which is the standard of modulation.

Moreover, if you can visit www.digital.co.uk, you might be able to get this model of Digibox on their confirmation list of incompatible boxes. However, you would not find all the boxes on that list as they are listed only when a complaint is made. You should therefore know that such problems are common and have happened with televisions, DVD’s of different models and makes along with boxes. In this case, you could expect to pay around twenty to thirty dollars for a new compatible box.

A Digibox is an effective and popular digital satellite receiver provided by the Sky Broadcasting. However, it has its share of problems. These problems may relate to issues like power supply, overheating and so on. If you need clarification about your specific situation with respect to issues related to Digibox Problems, you may ask a TV Technician expert to evaluate your case details and provide a technical insight.
