    Same problem



  • erose1986 May 06, 2009

    I have the same problem too! Maybe they did some kind of software upgrade thing overnight? Seems strange that everyone is having the same problem!

    We have two thomson digiboxes DT1 and both stopped working on the 5th May, may be a coincidence, but most likely not. They display an orange light and occassionally a green flashing light.

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! :)

Hello - a possible solution....

I have the same thing. I just rang Comet and they told me Thomson have done a software upgrade that has gone a bit wrong over the weekend!

The man from Comet told me to do this:

Unplug the cord out of the back of the box but leave on at plug.

press and hold the standby button, put the cord back in.

as soon as you see the light blip, let go of the standby button then press menu (1st) and then OK (2nd) Very quickly and the green light should start up.

Then you may need to re-tune box.... Will do it tonight (May 5th) and will let you know if it worked or not!
fingers crossed....

After recording a programme last night on my thomson freeview box a flashing orange light came on. i have tried switching it off at the plug, but the flashing light is still there


Hi, a common problem with the thomson freeview boxes is capacitors leaking in the power supply, The ones that go usually are the two 1000uf capacitors. If any of the capacitors look deformed, ie the tops look domed in any way. I would change them , Handy if you know how to use a soldering iron. If you can use a soldering iron remember to put the new capacitor in the same way ( the wires are marked so you must put them in the same way round).

Thomson dti6300-16


You can still record all the freeview channels. What has happened is you've run out of room on your hard drive. First you must deselect all the top up channels;
menu > 'Setup' > 'Customise TUTV', and un-ticking all boxes releases space and produces a report of '100%' free for recording. The time available for recording depends on the size of the hard drive and amount of data saved in each recording and 15% of disc space is not counted. This is for software or programme information etc. and, even when not subscribed, ads from TUTV are downloaded to library. However they are replaced or removed automatically, and messages are deleted after a week.
Also delete all the recordings in the library you don't need anymore.

My thomson dti 6300 250gb free view box wont turn on


Emailed Topuptv and got this reply

Dear Sir/Madam,



Thank you for contacting Top Up TV.



Please note that we are currently aware of an issue affecting some Thomson DTi6300 boxes.

If your DTR will not come out of standby and is not responding to your remote control, please try the following procedures.


Step 1: Power cycle
First of all, remove the power to the box and wait 20 seconds before restoring power.
Wait while the box tries to restart and allow 2 -3 minutes for this to complete.
Try this at least twice.
If it doesn't go to the solid green light then proceed to the next step.


Step 2: Front Panel Reset

Note: This procedure will unfortunately cause you to lose all of the recordings that you have stored on the box. You will need to be able access the back of the DTR and the front panel buttons

1. Remove power to the unit by removing the power cable from the back of the DTR.
2. Wait 20 seconds and restore the power cable while holding in the standby/power on button on the front panel of the DTR.
3. Release the standby button immediately you see a light 'blip' on the DTR front display and then immediately press the following front panel arrow buttons in sequence Up>Down>Left>Right
4.The DTR will now show the Orange LED with the Green LED flashing until the format has been completed in about 60 seconds. The DTR will return to ON automatically.
5. If requested, perform a channel scan to complete the operation.


We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Our Customer Services department can also be contacted on 08444 159 159. However, please note that we are currently experiencing high call volumes and so may not be able to answer your call as quickly as we would like.

Kind Regards,
Richard

User manual needed


remove power at plug socket
when you plug power back in start to repeatedly press the standby button on the front of the box
when this causes the orange light to stop flashing press the buttons up, down, left, right
(these buttons are on the front of the box not the remote)

this causes the hard drive to reset itself
WARNING
this will cause the box to completely reformat meaning you will loose all data recorded

but after this reset the box will work as new

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
