Hi guys and girls


I have bought an HD Freesat Recorder from eBay and it doesn't work as it is stuck on standby and wondered if anyone had any ideas or knew of how to get it fixed cheaply.


The best quote I have had is £40-50 but I would obviously like it done for less.


Help appreciated!

First, make sure the remote is transmitting, here is a link to show how to test it:




Try the manufacturers web site and see if there is a helpline/help section or maybe a manual. You may find it just needs resetting or the software re-installing as most recorders are software controlled and sometimes the unit can be upgraded or reset.
