However, this is the one that Sky will tell you to do, so instead of ringing them and getting stuck in a queue, just refer to this.a) Unplug the box from the mains plug for 3 minutes.Hold down the "Backup Button" on the front of the Sky Box 3. Remain holding the "Backup Button" for around 30 seconds 5.The lights on the front of the Sky Box should now light up 6.What should happen now, is that it'll show the "" message and then, restore itself back to full service.
