I think that you must be referring to the security PIN code for your box as no code is needed for the update itself. Sagem use a default PIN code of 1234 and a few use 1111. If these don't work then search for others but ultimately there is a jumper switch inside the unit on the main circuit board which can be used to clear the PIN code. Note that if you do this on a DIY basis then you should ensure the unit is physically disconnected from the power supply and that you use an anti static mat or wrist strap to prevent damage. If you get a professional to do this expect to pay at least £30 - £40; this is around half the cost of the box when it was new and it will not still allow you to successfully update.

The Sagem PVR 6280 is specifically listed as a box which will have updating problems, so DO NOT update it yet if you wish to avoid loss of functionality. The official advice is to phone Sagem directly on 0845 0900 316 to see if they have a fix yet, but as thousands of their boxes are affected the phone line is very busy this week.

Please see the address below for the official list of affected Freeview boxes:-

Hi,
There is no code.

At lunch time today all freeview boxes have to re-tuned so you will get channel 5 and ready for HDTV.
Some old boxes according to sources are packing up altogether so you have to keep this in mind.
You can re-tune your freeview box using your OSD (on-screen display) and locate re-tune.

If you are unsure how to re-tune the box which many people are having problems with please visit this website for a guide for your model box >>>>

Sagem box is asking for a 4 number code to retune


Hi,

The default code from the factory for Sagem is 1,2,3,4.

Unless you have manually changed it to something else it should still be the same. Enter this and let me know if it works ok for you.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I reset my sagem freeview


If I'm correct, then your box has frozen since a recent retune and is possibly (but not necessarily) displaying error codes 07 and 09. if this is the case then there is nothing you can do by way of a reset to remedy the fault.

If so, a number of Sagem models have shown incompatibilities with the recent Freeview retune, and your model (PVR 6280) is specifically listed as one ofthose affected (seehttp://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/bsp/hi/pdfs/01_10_09_freeview2.pdf ). Sagem are not the only ones, better known brands had problems as well.

The official advice is to contact Sagem directly on 0845 0900 316 to find out if they've scheduled an OAD (over air update).

If I'm wrong in my initial assumption and all you wish to perform is a straight system reset for any other reason then all you do is to switch the box on and then unplug it from the mains and from the aerial, leave it for five minutes to allow internal capacitors to discharge, and then refit the aerial plug and reconnect the mains power to it.

I hope that you've foundmy posting to be of use and ask only that you return the favour byrating my answer.

Problem retuning Sagem PVR6240T set top box


Hey Agoodwin,

Looks like you have missed the final software updates for the PVR72xx and 62xx series last year. The bad news is that Sagem are not likely to send another update for their old models. If you check your box settings and you have software version 0.4.5. or less, your box will probably not work again. Sorry, mate...

Lost BBC channels on my SAGEM PVR6200T during a retune



You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

http://www.freeview.co.uk/_retuneinfo/

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.
