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.

Retuning Philips DTR 1500 digibox


Had same problem. Remedy is to put digibox back to factory reset. Dis-connect from mains. Keep pressing + button on front panel as you re-connect to mains. Red LED will be on, when orange LED blinks release + button. briefly press + button. You have solid red LED and blinking red LED. Enter code 9 9 0 0, by remote blinking LED will show green. Wait a few minutes and the instalation page will appear on screen. Go to update and start as you did before and C5 should be installed. Hope that helps.
