    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....

If all the voltages measure normal, the failure could be in the LCD's inverter board. I've checked the schematic and it seems like the 16 volts could be a bit higher, check the electrolytic capacitors filtering the voltage for the inverter board.

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.

Can't tape tv program on VCR while watching another show on digital cable.


If you set it up right per Comcast instructions:

Your VCR will record a show off of its built in tuner while you are watching another show from the cable box.

Make sure that the AB switch is set into the correct position and that you are only recording a show that that isn't digital. I believe you can only record shows up to channel 150 off the VCR tuner. Anything higher than that won't work.

If your Comcast Cable Tuner has two AV outputs in the back of it, you can skip the AB switch altogether and plug the one of the cable tuner output lines into the back of the VCR input lines. That way it can record that show you are watching on the cable tuner at that same time.

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 dti 6300 freeview box will not come on just shows constant red/orange light flashing all the time, tried leaving power off etc....anyone know?


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.

Digital to analog converter box to tv/vcr combo


You will need a splitter and an rf modulator to do timed recording of programs. The instructions are on the dtv answers website, option # 2, record and watch a different channel. The recording is for the analog stations 1-24. You cannot record the higher stations. The items I purchased were a 3 way splitter $7 at local hardware store, an rf modulator $25 at Radio Shack. The other option was to get a cable box for the tv and record off of that at $6.95 a month or a DVR for $8.99 per month, all from comcast. The price that I paid for the items I needed would be repaid in 3 months if I were to go the comcast route. The conversion is nothing more than a money making scheme for them.
