BT box won’t wake up

Humax T2100 goes to BT screen ‘waking up’ then to YouView screen, then crashes....whirring noise from box, then tries to boot up over and over. Any chance this can be fixed or is it beyond repair?

    Hi mattlomax, welcome to the community. You could try "percussive maintenance" i.e. smack down on it firmly with the palm of your hand. Although not very scientific this has been known to work in the case of a stuck hard drive, which sounds like what is happening here. Other than that, if you are a BT subscriber, get on to them about it.

    Had this exact issue a couple of weeks ago.  I didn't know about the "percussive maintenance". I just replaced the HDD. It's very easy - just swap it out for a new one and then do a factory reset, then it downloads the firmware and you're good to go.
