You will get an er 09 on the display.
Press OK on the remote.
With a bit of luck the box will reboot into standby.
Connect antenna and see how you get on.

My sagem dvr62160sl uk digital reciever wont work

A number of Sagem models have shown incompatibilities with the recent Freeview retune, there is a list of affected models (see ) but it's not a fully comprehensive list. Sagem error code 07 means there's an access problem in back-up memory (stored in the EEPROM) and code 09 means the machine has been unable to find any data necessary to do an upgrade. In essence, your box has tried to upgrade itself and failed and now cannot restore to it's previous state.

Your dvr62160sl is closely related to the dtr6240 and 6280 models which are known to have had issues and so the official advice is to contact Sagem directly on 0845 0900 316 to find out how whether they can supply a solution on a dvd or if they've scheduled an OAD (over air update).

I hope that you've found my posting to be of use and ask only that you return the favour by rating 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...

Hi I had the same problem P603, er07 and er09, solved it by buying a 12v adaptor, you dont have to use sagem, in fact they are not very helpful, they will only take credit cards and it will cost you £15.00, any 12v adaptor will do. Mine is working perfectly now

Sagem dtr 6400t makes a whirring sound when you turn it on as if it is loading but nothing else happens. No screen is loaded so cant access any menus or anything

My Sagem DVR 6200T/6400T developed this problem. Initially, over a few days when I tried switching on the box via the normal button on the remote, the display would we black (no readout) but the box still made a whirring noise as if it was working and it would take about upto 15 mins for the display to come on and then I could use the remote as normal. After doing this for a couple of days the display evenutally stopped appearing, so the box would keep on making a whirring sound as if its was trying to initialise but nothing would be displayed on the readout and nothing happens if you press the handset. I tried turning it off and on at the mains plug, plugging the connections in and out of the box and television and at one point gave the box a 'smack' out of frustration. Amazingly I momentarily got a flashing error message:- either pb03 or p603 which upon looking online (for ages) apparently means an initialising error which seemed to make sense. NOTE- I do not recommend other people try 'beating up' their box. Anyway, this error never reappeared after turning the box off and on at the mains plug. After further research someone on this fixya site said try changing the Sagem adapor cable. I found an old external hard drive and the adaptor cable, which has the same input and output information as written on the Sagem AC/DC adaptor cable fitted and my sagem box now works fine again. And to think I was on the verge of paying out over £139 for a new box and amazingly all that was wrong with the old box was the cable! Points to note about using a different cable:- make sure the part that plugs into your box is the same size. Another adaptor I had rooted out from an external cd drive worked but it kept on switching the box off because the connection into the box (round plug) was slightly too small. The input should be 100-240V-50/60Hz and the output +12V=2.0A. Apologies for writing so much but because I no nothing about electrics I am trying to explain what I mean in laymens terms. I also suggest if you are in doubt, take your old cable into an electrical store like Maplins and get the advice you need about a new cable that is the same input and output as your sagem adaptor cable so that you do not plug in an AC/DC adaptor that could do further damage. AC/DC adaptors do not cost much and you may find that an universal adaptor set correctly may work.
I would like to thank the person who posted the solution because it worked for me and has saved me a lot of money.

No difference in in any operation of the freeview 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!
