      This can be a remote control issue, or the remote sensor on the front of the sky box that gone faulty.

      1 You can try to switch the sky box off at the wall then switch it back on to see if that works.

      If that fails to see if you sky remote is working right if you take one battery out of the back of the sky remote and face the red light on top of the remote at you, blindly put the battery back in the back of the sky remote and see how many times the led flashes on remote.

      0 TIMES- faulty remote- replace
      2 TIMES- working fine
      flashes several times- button stuck on sky remote- try find that button or replace

      2 See if you are able to to use your sky remote in someone else sky box, if that works it comfirms a faulty sensor on front of sky box. Remember sky digibox remotes can only be used on sky digibox's only.

      If not they are ways that you can reset sky remote, for different issues, don't ask me how!

      Obvious one, have you tried changing the batteries?

      Re: Remote not working sky digibox

      If the Sky remote is not changing the volume then it could be the code needs reinputting to control the TV (iirc it can be set to control the volume of the TV)

      Common TV Codes for your Sky Remote
