Re: remote not working on sky

Try taking one battery out and then hold down the select button for 60 seconds before putting the battery back, pressing the sky button and trying again.

Re: remote not working on sky

Try resetting the remote.

 

Press [TV] and then hold [select] and [red button] together for around two seconds (until the red light blinks twice). Now press 999 (red light blinks once for a long time and then twice quickly).

Then enter the correct code for your TV.

Re: remote not working on sky

When you point the remote at the Sky box, and press the Sky button, does the green LED on the front panel of the Sky box light?

 

If you have a digital camera, try pointing the remote at the camera lens and pressing the Sky button: if the remote is working ok you should see a white flash through the camera viewfinder.

Re: remote not working on sky

I'm getting no lights at all on the Sky box, except for the green power light. 

 

Pressed the Sky button and got a white light through a camera viewfinder

Re: remote not working on sky

Have you tried rebooting your box, leave it unplugged for 5 minutes before plugging it back in and then wait another 3 or 4 minutes before trying again.

Re: remote not working on sky

If you have a HD remote and a Sky+HD box, try on the remote:

 

Press 'tv'

Press 'Select' and 'i' together ( remote LED flashes twice )

'2'

'Select' ( remote LED flashes twice )

Sky button
