Just died. For no apparent reason...

Is this a warrantied item? We can manage as we have sky & controller upstairs...STILL HIGHLY annoying though.

Wish I hand't lobbed it about so much now.

It may have been hacked by the same people who hacked your computer. Is your Sky box plugged in to the internet?

Try this ....

- Take out the batteries
- Press and hold the Select button for 60 seconds
- Put the batteries back in and wait 60 seconds
- Hey presto all working again?

The above worked for me.

Any reason why I would have to do this again today!?

Worked again, but is it a sign of impending doom for the controller?!
