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.............

Either a dirty laser, faulty tracking mechanism, or a weak laser(aging) will cause unit to mistrack. When this happens the mechanisms are replaceable and not repairable.

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.
