Fix Sky Plus box Problems
Help is here if your Skybox won't switch on!
There are two options on how to fix your sky plus box problem, I have used both
1. This will not erase your stored and saved programme- so try this first
First unplug the skybox from the mains,wait one minute.
As you are plugging the socket back in Press the BACKUP button on the box (not the remote) and hold.
Wait until all the lights come on the front of the box. (release button)
Wait the full 10 minutes or until the lights go out then switch on from the remote. After about one minute of the message SEARCHING FOR LISTINGS, it should come back on to full service. (do not skip the 10 minutes, you will see the message on your TV. If you do anything in between you will lose all your saved Data)

2. WARNING this will format the HDD drive and you will lose all recordings.
Unplug the box from the mains plug for 2-3 minutes.
Press and hold the buttons either side of the select button on the box while plugging the socket back into the mains.
After 20-30 seconds the light will change colour and you have to wait 20 minutes till it goes back to red. Then press TV guide to see if it is working.
This should reset all the hard drive parameters and solve the problem.
Please let me know if it works (this is the option Sky give you if you phone them...not the above one that would save all your Data?
