Question about Televison & Video
Hi, i have a thomson DV3 digital terrestrial recorder. while watching tv, it froze so i switched if off at the mains. Since then, i have been unable to get digital television and the machine has a constant red flashing light. Thanks.
This recorder is constantly getting bad reviews, I think it is unfair because mine does the job, however this problem occured heres what you do.
turn off at the mains and wait 20secs turn back on and hold the standby button untill a light appears.
in sequence up down left right menu ok press the buttons on the front of the box wait 60 seconds and the normal red light will appear turn on box and there you go.
Good Luck further issues visit www.topuptv.com WARNING- doing this procedure will swipe your library but i think it is the only solution

Pick up the box ripping it from the cables, open the nearest window (preferably upstairs) and throw it s far as you can, this box is an ABSOLUTE NITEMARE. worst product ever on the market, nothing but recording problems, box is a complete let down

Hi all i had the problem of jumpy screen and recordings not playing and constant problems. I opened the unit hoovered all the dust out and remade all connections on the pcb and the hard drive and put it back together and hey presto...... it works as good as the day i bought it. hope it works for you too.

After contacting the TOPUP-TV help desk regarding this problem they suggest continually pressing the 'On' button on the remote handset when the unit is first switched on.
It did not sort mine out but maybe it will fix yours.
