My Bush Freeview HD TV box will not switch on, not with the remote or manually pushing the on/off button. This is a sudden problem. The box is working, as the time shows on the display. Help. Thank you. Fruit Bat /\0/\ 17:18 16 Apr 2019 Is there a switch on the rear you can switch off? otherwise unplug it for 2 or 3 minutes then switch / plug back in. let it boot up and see if that works. BT 17:36 16 Apr 2019 It may seem obvious but has the aerial lead become unplugged/loosened. jpm981 17:57 16 Apr 2019 Thank you so very much. I disconnected the box overnight and reconnected after fifteen hours. It is now working. The aerial was a snug fit, so I am assuming the reboot did the trick. Thank you again. BT 09:12 17 Apr 2019 Do you leave the box on standby at night? Most boxes and TVs will automatically check for updates at 3am. jpm981 10:00 17 Apr 2019 Thank you. I did not know that.
