Firstly, is the scart lead plugged in fully? Does it get the sound or nothing? Is the recorder sitched to the correct input? It may be trying to pull a signal from the TV which may not be passing through the picture from the sky box. Also, is the scart lead fully wired? Some only work one way so try spinning it round between the recorder and sky box.
Has it been knocked about a bit? If this has been dropped or hit by something, the laser might be off alignment. Usually the only way to fix this is replace the laser. If not, can you check if it has dirt on the laser lens? If you have a DVD lens cleaning disc this could remove any dirt off the lens.
You need to purchase a digital converter box in order to receive the proper signal, the only exception would be if your antenna is digital ready. I would suggest talking to a tv tech to find out if you need additional changes.
Plug your recorder into the SCART connection labelled VCR and plug that into a SCART connector on your recorder. To record from the Sky box, change the input channel to the SCART connector that the Sky box is plugged into and record away!
