PSU Repair / Enhancement
If you own a Thompson manufactured Sky HD or Sky + box, then you will at some point suffer from a PSU failure.
Just because your box still works is not a sign that your PSU is ok, it could still be failing. Other then opening your box and looking for the tell-tell
Sign of bulging or leaking capacitors, a failing PSU will also give the following symptoms:
Symptons of a failing PSU
No Signal / Intermittent Signal breakup
Picture Breakup on certain channels (Pixelation)
Picture Breakup on HD channels (Pixelation)
Box freezes during playback then reboots
Box Stuck in standby
Receiver resets by itself
Failed Timer Recordings
PLEASE NOTE - IF YOUR BOX IS TOTALLY DEAD, THIS UPGRADE WILL NOT WORK. YOU NEED OUR REPLACEMENT PSU SERVICE!
If you send us a dead PSU we will inspect it and advise you before repairing it as a dead/blown PSU repair is £49.99.

Please note some of the above symptoms are also signs of impending HDD failure. We recommend you replace the HDD as well, as they have a hard life!
Most customers choose to upgrade to a higher capacity drive over the 300gb drive thats fitted as standard.
We fit a 1TB drive as stanard on our HDD upgrades, thats over 3 times the original size capacity of the drive fitted in the HD box. We even offer a service to copy over your old drives content so you don`t loose your recorded programes!
