    I was looking around in my V5 Openbox and then trying to exit. Box is now stuck on "LoAd" and i can't do anything with it.I have turned it off, but when i turn it back on the message is still there and i can't seem to unlock it. Any ideas.

    Your box needs reflashing with RS232 null modem cable and firmware.
    All instructions in stickys.

    When you say a PSU do you mean a board not just a new plug, sorry if that sounds dumb.

    PSU = Power Supply Unit = plug and lead.
