What to do: if you have a solid amber light If the power light on the box will not change from solid Amber to solid Red then it is possible that a problem has occurred with the current in use software. Before attempting a fix, power the box off and on at the power socket and then wait at least 5 minutes for the solid RED lamp to appear.
If it still remains solid Amber and the box will not come out of standby to ON (Green light) then this can be corrected using the software revert procedure which is done using the box front panel buttons as follows:

1. Remove power to the unit by removing the power cable from the back of the box.

2. Wait 20 seconds and then restore the power cable while pressing the standby button repeatedly on the front panel of the box.

3. Release the standby button immediately when you see a lamp flash on the box's front display, and then immediately press the following front panel arrow buttons in this sequence:

- Menu
- OK

Note: you have to do this quickly and in sequence

4.The Orange light will flash and the STB will then reboot and should return with the previous version of software.

5. The box will now be running with the previous software version but it will automatically update with the latest version within approx 2 hours and you will be notified by message which will appear in the Message area within the Main Menu.

If you're still having problems please call 08444 159 159 and a member of the Technical Team will be happy to help.

Thomson DTI550 set top box problem


Hopefully those of you who still own their DTI550 had it operational this last weekend and picked up the download that fixed this? If not, it should be repeated some time soon. So don't throw your 550 away yet!

Thomson digital tv recorder DT1 6300-16 when switched on an orange light flashies on the digital box,doesn't do anything else.


Tried this earlier, and it worked for me (although I needed to resort to Option 2, and lost all my recordings...the price to pay, it seems!)

You will need bags of patience, unless you are very lucky first or second time...good luck! :)

Thomson DTI6300-16 digital TV recorder frozen, red light on constantly, no resposnse to any commands. I think it needs a factory reset - how do I do this?


Try Resetting the box to its factory setting:
  • Menu > Setup > Help
  • Then press the Green Button (Even though it doesn't show as an option)
  • Then press the Red button for a full reset
Warning: You will lose all data on the Hard Disk!

I did this when mine wouldn't record anything and dumped all my pre-recorded programs.
Worked a treat.

Thomson dti 6300 16 top tv version box tuner works but programe lbrary where recordingd are available has frozen cannot access or delete


Hi! This is not a great solution and a bit long winded, but aimed at those who've lost the receipt! Start by recording a new programme - the box should still record. Now the corrupt recording is not the first one in the library. When you press library now, all appears to be well. You can find which is the corrupt recording by scrolling down slowly. The corrupt one should be the one with no thumbnail picture (plus it'll be the one that freezes the box up again!). Restart the box agan and press library. If you have recordings before the corrupt one you should be able to scroll very quickly past it and delete them now. Now the corrupt programme is at the bottom of the library list - you can't delete it but at least you can avoid it now...

Like I said far from ideal, but it works on mine. Still no word from Thomson. Hope this helps.

Thomson DV3 digital terrestrial recorder


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

Wont come out of standby


The problem is most likely a defective lamp. See your owners manual on lamp replacement as this can be done by the consumer.
