    18 plate Leon FR - no radio any tips to identify the problem.
    Turned off- on volume bar shows controls are increasing volume.
    No thing from any station any band.
    Still in warranty but is just some sort of reset or reboot required?

    Have you checked that the radio is receiving a signal, my wife's 2015 Polo does things like that when the DAB signal is lost, and you can't just change from local to national station groups and get any sound, the older radios used to drop out of DAB when there was not a signal and change to the FM version of same station if possible, switching the radio off and back on when back in a known good DAB regional station coverage always works.

    Try rebooting the infotainment system - press and hold the power button for 30 seconds; release when the Seat/FR/Cupra logo appears.

    Went out to carry out the reboot. Put the key in, ignition on, Radio on.
    Perhaps it carried out its own reboot.

    Probably; there is a certain element of built in test within the unit, if something goes wrong in the sequencing of events it can throw a wobbly.

    No harm in performing the reboot anyway.

    Similar issues include Nav freezing, Nav taking you to Wolfsburg (VW HQ) and mode select not working - all resolved with the reboot.

    Thanks to those who responded. I’ll try the reboot anyway and ask the stealership to carry out an update at the service.
