Interesting, sounds like a similar issue to what I have had, occasional issues turning on and black screen with power light on. Will wait for said update to monitor the situation. Overall, issues aside, I rate the product.

you forgot to add your rating.

Hi, I have this exact same issue. can't turn the box on via remote from standby.

Batteries are fine.

Had the box about 3 weeks.

How do you do a reset?

I still haven't found a solution.  A person on this forum JamRam is giving me one more thing to try and if that doesn't work - I have no option but to return it for a refund.  Has now been almost 2 weeks and it just won't turn on.  Have tried everything through the vodafone help on a 70 minute phone call (turning off power, holding down WPS button while re-powering [this seems to force a software update but the box just goes back to solid red light and won't turn on], using a different HDMI port, trying on a different television) but nothing has worked.  Has been extremely frustrating.  

No joy tonight and it will be being returned to Noel Leeming tomorrow.  

NB: it isn't a Vodafone TV device issue because this is the second box I have got and the same thing happened twice.

Interesting. If its not a VTV issue must be something we have in common with our setup.

I re-pair the rmote and turn the device off and on. That is about the only way to get it going.

I can't get it to turn on at all - it just remains 'off' with red light on the front.  Have also tried repairing remote but that doesn't work.  And standby button on box has no effect.  Grrrr.

Looks like it is a VTV issue and there is a fix incoming:
