Cable box turning on for a few seconds then off

Was experience err-7 On Demand which means weakened signal. Advised to reboot box, upon turning it back on it wont go back on, if it does then it stays on for a few seconds, Shows "boot" then turns right back off. Tech support told me there is an outage but I dont understand how this would affect the box turning on at all, wouldnt it just say no signal?

 

UPDATE:  Back on, but now have Video On Demand err-18. Always something.
