    Were you offered any kind of a warranty with it?

    If so, as you seem to have exhausted all other possibilities, it may be time to invoke it.

    We bought it second hand off someone,so no warranty..it was all we could afford..maybe throwing it at a brick wall will ''wake' it up 😀

    Oh dear - I do hope you did not pay too much for it  :'(

    But I think we should absolve your husband of any blame - putting these boxes into Smart mode does not usually break them, so this is something that just happened after that change, rather than because of it.

    There are lots of these T2100 boxes on eBay, though, and usually reliable, so if you are not put off, you might like to consider one of those. Even with such a second purchase, you will have much better than break-even against a new, guaranteed one.

    Thank you for your replies..we paid £50 for it..think we will just see if we can afford a new one next month,then at least it's under warranty if anything goes wrong.I'm still blaming my husband though😂
