    Hi folks,

    Apologies if this has been covered but I've used the 'Search' function and can't find anything.

    My trusty Openbox S10 of 2 years appears to have croacked. It was fine until a few days ago when we had a thunderstorm, I was advised by flybee Jnr that the box flickered and the TV went blank. The TV is fine and works 100%. Thinking the PSU in the S10 was at fault (nothing lights up or switches on) I ordered a new one but the box is still refusing to budge.

    Is there anything else I can try or do I need to get a new box and move on?

    Kind regards,

    f'bee

    i bet you had no protection on your box,like mains/sat cable/ and lan protection and you got a surge,probably not worth a repair.

    Thanks cactikid, I think you're right - there def wasn't any protection on the set-up. What's the best way to protect the new box when I get one?

    Regards,

    f'bee
