Hi,

Initially looks like a failed (firmware) update. Initially, pls try to reset by unplugging from the mains. This will hopefully revert the unit back to factory defaults. Anything out of the ordinary, thunderstorm, power interruption prior to the problem?

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Should the unplugging be not corrective, pls try:


    • power off using the rear power button;

    • press and hold the ON/OFF front panel switch;

    • while maintaining pressed condition on the front panel ON/OFF switch, power on the rear switch;

    • wait till system re-initiates.
    If still a no go, pls post back if you have:


    • USB flashdrive;

    • CD that came with the sat receiver;

    • instructions manual (including the firmware upgrade step by step procedures.
    Cheers.

Try first unplugging tv and box from power for ten minutes.

Give details on tv model and equipment used.

    Regarding the sat box, do the following, unplug box from power, from tv, and also from sat cable, wait ten minutes and plug it back.
    Let me know if you still get the same problem.

    Thanks

Why when turning on blaupunkt 1080p led hd tv i only get a black screen there is start up menu


If you tap "gently" on the front screen do you see whiteish color?
If no you have a problem with the set. probable power supply issue.
If you do then press menu. If you don't see the menu on screen, probable control board issue or lvds board. Time for a tech.
