So I got the km2 about 2 weeks ago and it has a strange issue. Sometimes when I turn it on with the physical on/off button the box makes a low clicking noise/vibration and makes the TV screen flicker/strobe. It’s also happened when pushing the power button on the remote to wake the box up.
I’m wondering if this has happened to anyone else? It’s still within the “return” window and I’m thinking about returning it.
Hey @Catz I don’t have a km2 but I do have a km6 & I’ve never had that happen on mine. What you’re describing makes me wonder if there’s an intermittent power surge/loose connection causing the noise & screen flicker. Personally, if returning it is easy enough to do…I would definitely consider it…but maybe some others will chime in with other suggestions. GL2U whatever you decide
I bought a KM2 for a friend of mine and that was about 4 months ago. So far he hasn’t told me of any issues. I always ask him how it’s working and he says great. He’s not a techno type guy so I’m sure if it was making noise he would let me know. Returning it might be an option because it could get worse. Every product ever made has their lemons and this might be the case
My KM2 is in the electronic junk drawer. Hated the lack of multi device control with the remote. Never could get it to control my TV or sound. Contacting manufacturer just got me an “update coming” loop. Never happened.
Updates…MeCool…my box hasn’t seen one since 2020…sent them a message about it & they directed me to a site with one…but I couldn’t get the page to load. Even so, they said if it ain’t broke…don’t do the update, so I’m guessing they aren’t real proud of its stability, so I think I’ll pass & call it good enough. You may be on to something…maybe yours is hungry for one. Might as well give it a shot…with all the mingling in that drawer…it might now be a hybrid.
I’ve watched Troy’s videos on the onn (plus a million others ) and last night stumbled on Troy’s video on TiVo 4k. I THOUGHT I had made up my mind for the onn… Ahhh! I’m bummed about the MeCool but I’m moving on! And yes, anxiously waiting for tomorrow’s Onn draw!
