    Have you tried switching it off and on with the white button on the back?

    Check the button on the back is clicked to on. Turn it off and on with that button to reboot. Check the mains socket is working with another device like a hair dryer. [STRIKE]If it is, change the fuse in the h2s plug.[/STRIKE]

    Can't see it being the fuse if the light on the PSU is on

    If the light is on the PSU then power is getting in to it, the problem could be is power exiting the block?
    If it is there is a problem in the box, power regulator or a blown cap maybe?
    I'm good with electronics but haven't had a H2s in bits yet :)

    How long have you had it and from where? Is it under warranty?

    Tbh mate, in my experience those 2s boxes start to give up the ghost after a while. I've just replaced 2 with h2S's recently. My advice is not to waste time and effort trying to get it going and just order a new h2s from Zgemma Star Satellite Receiver's - Official Store

    I was thinking that would be the case!! I've set up a few h2s for family members!! Its much better but was hoping not have extra cost with xmas coming up!! P.s. i cant go back to an openbox even though its the cheaper option!

    Can you solder, use ohms law and a voltmeter? if not then I'd advise you to replace it

    Now a few people that have the same kind of thing as this (electric key meter going off) using a s2 and not getting box back on. Dunno if its they way there made or not but ive been using a h2s for a while now and had no issue when ours has gone off.

    I've not had a box to bits. But they will all have a regulator or a step down probably a cap or a series of caps to check first and see if they can be sourced and replaced. Trace the power with a volt meter if you can and hope the pcb isn't full of surface mounts. Good luck
