Sonicview sv-1000 FTA reciever issue

Hi there
i have this sonicview model, was working great but one problem i have,it loads up the latest bin files successfully and reboots by itself, but after rebooting attched with tv, its flashes once, the tv screen goes blank, when i press the front on/off button on reciever, it brings up the screen saying "please wait for the update" and the picture does not come, i have checked everything, switch is okay,downloads of factory bin and latest files all fine, when i select FTA it shows some of the channels but when selected as default FTA/CAS, it says" channels scrambled, the technician says it may be problem due to files these days but my neighbour's systems work fine, any ideas...what could be wrong please. thanks, i am not sure if its the hardware problem..

I've had this same problem happen a number of times to mine and all I do to fix it is to disconnect the battery for about 20 seconds and then reconnect and power on. Has fixed it every time (so far)! Hope this helps!

Use plug-in power supply and leave on channel 1. Call XM (1-800-XM-RADIO) and ask them to "refresh" your radio. WAIT 1/2 hour, then check your channels. Make sure you have a decent signal too (can hear Channel 1 okay) before you call XM for the 'refresh signal' for your new radio.

Viewsat ultra

This is not the site for what you are looking for, you need the fta site. You can go to dss****** and search for any FTA sites, regarding the view sat. If you have anyone programming for you, you will need to take back. If you are trying to DIY then look for a FTA site that will teach you how to JTag your equipment. If im correct you may have to go inside to repair. If it does not reset then Jtag is the best option. I think dsstester or the other sites can help if you look in their forums. Hope this helps!
