Hi margaretanne on Dec 02, 2008

I have a similar problem with mine. I find the battteries are loose, I remove the back of the remote, jiggle the batteries and press the button, and it works, until I drop the remote and the batteries loosen again.

Unplug the aerial; switch the PVR On; if you have control via the remote do a reset to default settings thus:

1. press Menu on the remote
2. select Installation and enter default password of 0000 unless you have changed it
3. select Default settings and okay on YES
4. then turn if off again via the remote
5. plug the aerial back in and it will scan for channels, save them of course.

I got help on this from other forums but saw your request for help. This worked for me.

SOURCE: Problem with my sagem pvr 64160t

Powering on a Sagem 64160t after disconnecting the HDD will produce the problem that you are experiencing. Sagem build quality can be poor. After opening the case, carefully check the data and power connections to the HDD for joints that lack solder or that haven't been properly seated. If the connections are good then the problem lies with the HDD, which may have failed. Unfortunately, DIY Sagem HDD replacement can be problematic.

Can you record from a smart tv with arecording box


First of all you need to check if your TV supports recording. Some 2010 models do and most 2011 have it implemented. Look for stickers or logos such as:
  • USB Recording
  • PVR (Personal Video Recorder)
  • DVR (Digital Video Recorder

  • The following manufacturers support it in some of their models. Typically mid-end to high-end models. Check the manufacturer web site if you are unsure.
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • LG
  • Philips
  • Panasonic
  • Toshiba
  • Sharp (only Time Shift pausing)
  • Grundig

    What you need

    Many consumers have USB recording enabled TVs without actually using the function - simply because it requires an extra USB hard drive ou need the following:
    1. USB Recording: A HDTV that supports recording.
    2. A USB HDD: FlatpanelsHD uses a USB HDD from Transcend.
    3. Digital channels: Recording is only enabled on digital channels - not analog. You can record SD, HD and 3D.
    Some manufacturers recommend USB hard drives with external power supplies but we have used a Trandscend USB HDD that takes power from the USB plug on all manufacturers' TVs without any problems. Manufacturers typically allow 1:1 recording, meaning that you will see no loss in picture quality.

    How to set up USB Recording

    Once you have purchased a USB hard drive and connected it on the back of the TV you can move on to "pairing" the USB HDD with the TV. Here is how to set up USB recording.

  • Connect the USB HDD to a free USB port on the back of the TV.
  • The USB hard drive now needs to be formatted (all data will be deleted).
  • Most TVs help you to format the USB HDD automatically but on some models you need to enter the menu and select format HDD (or something similar)

    PVR says HDD not detected.


    Disk may have failed or become corrupted. If it's a few years old, its PSU capacitors are probably failing. This is repairable, but you may lose your recordings.

    Sagem PVR disk full error


    Most likely a hard drive failure. Something called spinal failure can cause an issue that sounds like this.

    The box wont record saying the HDD memory is full however it only shows 26% and wont let me open the file or delete the file. further it has lost everything previously recorded


    Hi, this is a common problem, you need to get in touch with the place you have bought it from and tell them your hard drive is corrupt and will need formatting and re-installing the firmware, now depending on how long you have had it they may tell you you need to pay to have it fixed, if they tell you that then you would be better off getting a new one.

    the chances are something has over heated and caused the data on the hard drive to be corrupt so even though it only showing 26% it means the rest of the hard drive has corrupt data and cant be recorder on so you only have 26% of your hard drive left that you can use.

    over time this will happen to all dtv recorders its nothing you can do either contact the place that sold it to you or have a look in the book that came with it and contact their customer support and explain whats happening, they will then tell you how to access the service mode and this will allow you to format the hard drive and may solve the problem.

    we dont have the service menu details here as its only sagem who hold them and they keep it to themselves as its what their engineers use to reset the system and solve any problems.

    it may or may not work but you have got nothing to lose so either take it back to where you bought it from and ask them about an exchange or refund or look in the handbook and call sagem customer service team and ask them how to format the harddrive

    also check in the settings that this is turned on: OAD Auto Updates enabled.
    make sure it is enabled.

    also try doing the following to reset the box it may work but most of the time if the hd drive is corrupt it will need replacing before you can record again
    1. Turn off the unit for 5 minutes to cause a full reset.
    2. Turn on the PVR with everything attached except the aerial.
    3. You will get an Er-09 on the display. On my PVR there was no output on the TV screen whatsoever (totally black screen).
    4. Press 'OK' on the remote.
    5. The box reboots in standby mode.
    after this it should say OAD complete this means the firmware has been updated if it dont do anything then the chances are you have all the latest updates and you hard drive is no good.

    let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

    plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

    The Sagem PVR 6280 is specifically listed as a model which will have problems with the retune.

    See the address below for a chart of affected models, but the official advice is that you must contact Sagem directly on 0845 0900 316 for either an over the air update or an update DVD depending upon the manufacturer.

    I have retuned my PVR 6200t recorder and have lost ITV and Channel 5 and several other channels. Any advice?


    The Sagem PVR 6280 is specifically listed as a model which will have problems with the retune. Although the Sagem PVR 6200 and 6200t are not specifically listed as problem models they are very closely related to the 6280/6240 models and share most of the same firmware and software.

    See the address below for a chart of affected models, you'll need to contact Sagem directly on 0845 0900 316 for either an over the air update or an update DVD depending upon the manufacturer.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/bsp/hi/pdfs/01_10_09_freeview2.pdf

    Sorry I can't provide you with a definite solution but it's very likely that your model is one of those which only Sagem can sort out.
