Any help appreciated before I chuck it away! I have an ONN LEDSTB0705 digi freeview recorded which over christmas has seemingly given up the ghost. The red light is on and the screen says "STARTING" however it is not on a wont come on, have turned off overnight and checked all the connections.....any ideas?

Is this a "Vestel T816"?

I used to have one abouit 2 yrs ago and it did this, (they all do it!!
Turning it off is not effective, you need to remove the power plug and wait 5 minutes or so then plug it in again and it should boot up OK.

Could try here click here for more help, but time's moved on and there are even more up to date and equally unreliable units being wrestled with! lol
