Question TV option Missing

Just noticed that TV option is no longer an option on the screen. I have a Sept 2005 M3 and only have the car a month. It was working fine when I purchased it.

I did have a flat battery a couple of weeks back and assume it must be linked to that and just never noticed.

Any one any ideas?

I have found a copy DVD "V32 Firmware" in with the handbook from the previous owner?

Thanks

Was it digi-TV ?

If it's been swapped / plugged in before sale the plug(s) could have come loose

By far the easiest solution would be to eject the Nav DVD and wait for the red light to go out (5-10mins) and then disconnect the battery and reconnect. If that doesn't boot it up, you'll have to go looking for loose connections.

Thumbs up

Sorry for late reply Rick but many thanks - removing the DVD and battery worked a treat.

Result

You can do the same with fuses ...but I don't remember which ones they are, so yeah you have to reset your clock, but that's no great hardship
