Question about Arris DCT6200 DTV Receiver

DTC-210 blinking lights

So i took out the 4 yr old barely used HDTV receiver for Directv as I have decided to get service with them again. When I plug the thing in the power and HDTV lights go crazy clicking and blinking. What the heck is going on? the thing was fine when I put it away safely in its box on top of the closet. Any idea what the deal could be?

    I have the same problem. From what I have seen so far it either a bad power supply ic or it is a standby mode. I have my fingers crossed that is the latter. Mine is sitting here right now clicking away. One post I found said to leave it plugged in for 3 hours and it will start working. hope they are right. This looks like a nice reciever especially for the $3.50 I gave for it a t a thrift store. I will try to update tomorrow if this fies the problem.

In the past few years there has been alot of HD changes with directv. There are new dishes and more programming. what type of receiver are you using. it may need the to update its software? You also can try this. power up the receiver without any satellite cables plugged in. see if it will start clicking. if it doesnt plug in the satellite cable. let me know what happens

Can i use a store bought universal remote and if so which one

Just about all of them will work these days. However, I've had great luck with the One For All remote's.

Another option is a learning remote. With a learning remote, you can learn any remote you own to the one. Again, the One For All 8910, is a universal and learning remote. This one is my fav:

Directv dvr will not power on. The record light

Unplug the DVR for about 20 minutes and then plug it back in. If that doesn't work its probably time to contact DTV for a replacement.

Unplug it from the power for about 30 minutes and then try again. If it still doesn't work I would call DirecTV and discuss getting it replaced.

Directv D10 receiver

I guess the obvious question is, do you have a DirecTV dish installed on your house? If you do, then most likely the cable you have plugged into the Satellite Input on the back of the receiver isn't connected to the dish. I would recommend calling DirecTV and having them send a tech out to double check the system.
