My motorola DCT6200 was powered down after using for 2 hrs last night. This morning it wouldn't power up. Verified power supply. Tried with remote and power button on unit. Wanted to watch a pay-per-view event tonight and now this thing won't power up. Left unplugged for 10 minutes and tried again - same result.

usually a sticker on the bottom of the box, sometimes on rear.
if it is to hard to get at or the sticker is missing try this:
1)turn everything all on as if your watching it
2)locate the d-pad, power button, and select button on the face of the box.
3)push power and right away start mashing select over and over
4)you should end up with a white screen and black text (a kinda debug screen) 5)use the d-pad to select #5 unit address and security
6)little over halfway down "host serial #" is your boxes serial number.
fyi: you can use the cable remote instead of the buttons on the box.
pull the power at the back of the box or the wall, which ever is more convient. then wait for all the power to bleed out of the capacitors takes a minute or two (we call this a power cycle) hopefully it comes back up. might be time to put it to pasture.
I think the transformer for the dct6200 is in the cable box... thats why there is no "box" on the power cord...
sadley that means the damage may be in the cable box and much harder to replace than if the transformer had been on the cord.
can you call the cable company and have them replace them?
