Question about Sagem PVR 6280 Freeview DTV Receiver / 40-Hours Video Recorder
Your question is listed under Sagem PVR6280 so I'll assume that'swhat you have. What follows also applies to the 6240, 6200 and 6200t.
Like on many other makes of receiver the unit uses a PIN code protection system to prevent unauthorised viewing and also to prevent unauthorised tampering of the system settings. If you have not previously set a PIN code then Sagem typically use default codes of 1111, 1234 or 0000. If this does not work then there may be a jumper switch inside the box on the main circuit board which willclear whatever code has been previously set back to the default code.Note that later revisions to these units do not have the reset switchand can only have the PIN reset via a manufacturer firmware flash: getting this done maycost more than the box is worth as it has to go back to Sagem.
Open thebox at your own risk and ensure that you physically disconnect the boxfrom the mains and use an anti-static mat or an anti-static wrist-strap.From memory, I think that when the jumper has been altered the box needsto be briefly re-powered and then turned off to allow the jumper to bereset back as it was.
If your box is a Sagem 6240/6260 then DONOT update it yet as these models are known to be incompatible with theupdate and will lose some functionality afterwards. The official adviceis to contact Sagem directly on 0845 0900 316 to see if they have a fixyet, but the number is clearly going to be ridiculously busy for at least a couple of weeks as thousands of their boxes are affected.
