Youview box not getting a signal from the HDMI port

I was watching my youview when suddenly the screen went blank on my tv and my tv said no signal was being recieved.

I tried switching the box off and on but that didn't work.

I tried a different HDMI cable and port that i use for another device and still nothing.

I dug out a old scart cable just to see if that would work and i was able to get a signal.

When i connect the box via HDMI my tv recognises it and it comes up in the menu but when i select it i get no signal.

Is there anything i can do to try and fix this?

Which Youview box model do you have (it should be on the back of the box if you don't remember) ?

If you power off the Youview box and wait 30 seconds before powering back on do you see the any of the Youview  or BT TV loading screens ?

Yes i tried switching off and leaving it for 30 seconds, no joy. My TV recognises that a device is connected to the HDMI port (HDMI 3 in my case) but it doesn't get a picture it just acts like nothing is connected.

I can only get a picture if connect the scart cable but obviously the picture quality does not compare to HDMI.

YouView box is probably broken.

Hi @BrickSmith,

I would agree with @Keith_Beddoe, it does sound like the Youview box is faulty. If you are still under contract for your BT TV service, I'll be able to help you get a replacement box.

You can send me in your details using the "Contact The Mods" link found in my profile.

Thanks

PaddyB

Just provide the information requested on the contact form that @PaddyB provided.

Provided you stay in a contract, there should be no charge for a replacement box.
