Question about Motorola DCP-501 Receiver

Motorola DCP-501 ****ACTIVATION*****

Just bought my DCP 501 from an on-line company. I was out on a fishing trip when it arrived, so my son saw fit to set it up and suprise me upon my return..... However he did a scan for channels, which clearly warns not to in the set up, for digital customers.
Needless to say.... I truely was suprised when I returned home. I have been able to get the receiver to out put a few of my channels, but nothing digital and after calling the company I purchased it from, I can not a response from them.

HELP!!! If anyone would know what I can do to reset or undo what my teenager did..... you never say anywhere in the advertisement that you have to call the cable company to have this damn thing activated

Just unplug the unit from the power supply for about a couple of hour and that may reset the settings of it , you can also check this user manual for additional information but if still failed the next step is to call the manufacturer of the unit http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/DCP501/downloads/DCP501_User_Guide.pdf

Hope that helps.............

In the morning my son drove at his school , when he get on the park, saw transmision fluid under the car. My question is how can lost all trasmission fluid the car?. My car is a taurus 2000.My son said...


This leak could be from another vehicle that was parked before your son arrived , OR- the transmission cooler lines are leaking, due to rust. This is the most probable cause. These steel lines either keak at the fittings or sometimes the steel lines rust out causing a leak..
I reccommend that you take the car to your repair shop for a further inspection..

My son has bought a deluxe starter fishing set for freshwater fishing,and there no instructions how to set up the tackle.e.g floats weights ect.


you can put the weights on leaving about 3 feat of line then tie the hook on by putting some line through the loop in the hook and twisting it about 7 times upward and pulling the excess line through the bottom loop in the line. Or just attach the floater with a little bit of weight under it with the hook put on the same way.

Lost part for rocket fishing rod


The same thing happened to my kids rods.
A friend suggested a product called Bobber Stopper.
It's basically a small bead and string. I found that the bead would not
reel back in, but if you just tie a piece of sting on the line big enough
so it does not fit through the bobber. It worked for me, so hopefully
this will work for you.

DVD Player won't work


DVD's: does it display any kind of error? All DVD's?

To your second question.

The manual explains cable and TV hookup for CABLE but there is no mention of off-air TV tuning.

If you don't have the manual go to:
http://www.retrevo.com/support/Motorola-DCP501-Receivers-manual/id/393bh936/t/2/ and register to get it. It's free.

Motorola DCP-501 and PPV


It takes registration of the unit to receive them and it would be unethical and illegal to post a way to hack them here...

The clear protective film on the DCP501 display must be removed and transferred to the inside back cover of your
DCP501 Home Theater System User Guide. The Unit Address and Serial Number found on the protective film is
required for activation of your DCP501 cable TV receiver by your cable TV service provider.
