Get 'em while their hot...
I had the same symptoms described by this very long thread. I am an electronics engineer, so ran a few tests. The problem in my case, is a blown power supply after a mains power failure.
Replacing the power supply with a 6 volt compatible unit brings the 'Now TV' box back to life. You will need to set up the wifi connection again. For those who are a bit techy, the power supply has probably blown the direct current (DC) rectifiers and an unregulated AC voltage is now supplied to the Now TV box, hence the total malfunction of it. With the failure of power supply you won't be able to reset it or anything else.
I will post this info in a new thread as well.
Hi and welcome to the forum @Legatus70,
First things first. Can you please confirm the model of your NOW TV playback device?

IanHub Thanks very much, it works for me.
My Nowtv box's white LED was flashing, the remote was not working at all. I tried the hard reset but it didn't work. Of course, I didn't think of changing the power supply because the box was working.
Now I changed the power supply to a new one and Hooray! The box is back to life.
UPDATE: After starting the first programme, the box's frozen again, and the LED started flashing.
i have the exact same issue except mine is with the NOW tv smart stick.
for a good couple of weeks it was working fine. set up fine. no issues. then all of a sudden it wouldnt load any of the apps, kept stating a connection error. wifi works fine, always have, had no problems and nothing has changed at all. now when i go to turn it on, it goes to the start up screen for a few seconds and then nothing. it cuts off to a no signal screen and there is a white flasing light on the stick. ive followed all the advice online about resetting and it doesnt seem to work. i went to try it again the other day and now the remote wont even connect to it.
im just so confused and lost. i have no idea what to do other than launch it out the window. is there a way of fixing it ?
