The lcd is faulty maybe also a part of the front processor and the lcd is not functional.
The box has only 16mb ram and the memory extension board became loose or is missing.

You can flash a 16mb box with the latest IFA version and additional nullmodem cable but a 16mb box is not able to decode the scrambled channels. You can get only the free channels.

As mgb said you will only get FTA with any image you flash on.
contact the seller as no nokia left the factory with only 16mb all had 32mb
unless he stated it only had 16mb in his auction in which case you can get one from here.
