Question about Philips TV Receivers & DVRs
The green light is on, but it isn't responding to the remote.
No menu will come up .... nothing.
I've checked the batteries in the remote and they're ok.
I've turned the whole lot off at the socket and back on, still no joy!

Sorry guys, have checked on other forums and unless it is still under warranty, or you are good with electronics, it is not worth fixing. Apparently it is a problem with the chip and capacitors on the board. I opened up my STB after fining this out and found heat stress marks all around the chip. Result : Its dead!

I left the box and went for a walk!!!
About four hours after having freezed an error 09 message came up on the set top display and then everything returned to normal, after an on TV screen message that update had been successful.!?!
No difference in in any operation of the freeview box.
Note to self and other users
DO NOT PRESS OK WHEN ASKED TO UPDATE SET TOP BOX.
Updating the channel tuning does seem to work ok, though I have to vary between where channel 4 can be found - or learn welsh!

I have one of these boxes and one of the things which has caught me out a couple of times is that the remote can control three devices. To turn the Z250 on and off you may need to press the DTR button at the top of the remote first. When you press the on/off button on the remote the DTR button should light up red to let you know the signal is being sent to the Z250.
You are probably aware of this but just in case you weren't

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.
