Broken Sky Digibox

Does anyone know how to repair my digibox or indeed know of  an individual/local firm who can repair it? The model is a Panasonic TU-DSB30. It has broken down in standby mode and refuses to turn itself on.

I've tried to reboot the system (by holding down the back up button and then plugging it into the mains) but to no avail. I have also tried leaving it unplugged for a couple of days in case it was overheating but again no luck.

Thanks in advance for any replies,



ps It's quite nice though having a bit of peace and quiet for a change!

A common fault with the panasonic 30 is the bga .It is a surface mounted ic with about 100 solder connections.unless the repairer has a desoldering station ,costing thousands of pounds,it is uneconomic to repair.you would be well advised to purchase a good second user system
