If the problem persists, please contact Videotron’s Technical Support team. Please make a note of the error message appearing onscreen and mention it to the advisor.

If the problem reoccurs, please reboot the terminal. Once the terminal has been rebooted, try accessing the menu again.

It is possible that the channel you have chosen is not included in your package. To view your current channel package – and even modify it – visit the Customer Centre at www.videotron.com

If the channel is still not authorized, please contact our technical support at 1 877-380-2611.

The transfer of information for the interactive TV guide is much more efficient when the terminal is off (at night, for example).

Unplug the electrical cable of your illico terminal and wait 10 seconds before plugging it in again. To ensure that the guide will be reset, you must then wait eight minutes before turning the terminal back on.

If the terminal has been off at night and the descriptions are still missing, contact our technical support at 1-877-380-2611.

"There was a problem processing your order. Please contact technical support at 1-877-380-2611."

To change your PIN:

1. Press MENU to display the main menu.
2. Using the arrows, select Settings and OK.
3. Choose the Controls and limits menu to change your PIN.

If you forget your new PIN, you will not be able to change it from your terminal. You will have to call Videotron’s technical support at 1-877-380-2611 to have it reset.

Attention: only the account holder or authorized users can make such a request.

  • First check that your television is HDCP-compatible (consult your television’s user manual).

  • When the correct time appears on the terminal, turn on your television first and ensure that you have selected the right source for your terminal connection.
  • Now turn the terminal back on and try to access the channels again.

To avoid this type of problem in the future, always turn your television on from the right source before turning on the terminal.
