Bush Freeview box will not switch on

I do hope someone can help. 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.

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.

It may seem obvious but has the aerial lead become unplugged/loosened.

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.

Do you leave the box on standby at night? Most boxes and TVs will automatically check for updates at 3am.

Thank you. I did not know that.
