OK so I have multiple nextboxes in my house. I do not have "whole home" set up and I do not want to set it up. In one of the bedrooms the NB3 has been freezing and I have had to reboot it several times to be able to watch a show. I didn't really care because it was in the bedroom and I usually fall alseep anyways. It has been going on for about a month.
This morning the NB3 in my living room has gone insane. It has been rebooting since 6:30 this morning. It "blows up" then it counts from "-01-", "-02-", etc... up to "-05-". Then I see "loAd" next comes "boot" and finally I get the time back on the front of the box. As long as the box is left off it is fine but as soon as I turn it on the screen freezes within 2 minutes and I am going through this whole process again.
Any suggestions? Rogers is useless!! They send a tech guy out he says its a signal problem. He puts a boaster on my line. A week later a new guy comes out and he takes it off and says the line is fine and that it should have never been put there in the first place. And so on and so forth. I am to the point that I refuse to let the cable guy in the house becasue it is clear to me that the do not know what they are talking about. If I could switch to Bell I would be gone in an instant but I rent and my housing provider will not allow the dishes to be installed on the buildings so I am stuck.
Any help would be awesome....
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Usually those sorts of messages come, when its having an issue doing an update.. either just a guide update, or a system update.
While there are other things that can cause it.. it often IS signal related.
Question then, comes down to...is IF your signal is good or not... (and which tech was right/wrong).
IF the box was up but not working quite right, you could take a look at the diagnostic screen to see... but with it in the reboot state.. not as easy... Not sure if the NB3 can get into diag from bootup or not...
I'll take a peek around the net and see if i can find instructions.
Just wondering if screen freezes on all the channels or certain channels. It could be signal level issue, as signals should be like blood pressure, not high not low, needs to make sure few things;
1- Check connections from the back of the box, all secured and tigh. (no loose connection).
2- Change box resolution to 1080i. Settings>Appearance>TV output> 1080i>>SAVE>>Begin test> Keep Settings
3- Change HDMI slot from TV (if you are using HDMI cable)
"blows up" then it counts from "-01-", "-02-", etc... up to "-05-". Then I see "loAd"
This is normal booting process. after -05- you see Load then local time.
hope this help!!! let us know 🙂
It is on 1080i. It has been cycling like this all day with any pauses. Now it goes into the boot cycle when it is turned off as well. Super frustrated!
I understand you have two tech came in and no solution. I'll try another tech and swap the box. if you are renting.
Be sure Rogers replaces them with tested, shrink wrapped boxes, not ones that someone else has just returned.
