Question about Philips DIRECTV H20 DTV Receiver

1 Answer

DTV H20-600 The receiver does have the ECO 2.0 sticker on it. I also cannot find the LM317 IC or a TIP42C transistor. Where are they located? Do you have a schematic? I powered up the receiver after it being unplugged a few days. I was able to watch the weather channel in HD for about 35minutes then I got the error 771 searching for signal. Seems like the problems is related to powering the LNB. Thank you for all your help.

    Thank you for your help. I will try to locate the voltage regulator but will most likely contact DTV to get the unit replaced. I just like to fix things myself for the pure education of it.

    Thank you,
    R.

I do not have an schematic for this receiver. This receiver might not use LM317 or TIP42C but a different voltage regulator, try to locate where the 20 volts line from the power supply and follow it to anywhere near the LNB tuner circuitry. This type of IC is normally mounted on a heatsink.
Lastly if you are a subscriber, give you satellite service porvider a call to get a replacement.

The directv screensaver came on the SYFY channel (only the SYFY channel) amd I can't make it go away


Most DTV related problems can be repaired by a RBR (red button reset). Locate it behind the access card door. Press for 2 - 3 seconds and release. It will take about 5 - 7 minutes for the receiver to reboot. If you cant find the RBR button, remove or unplug power from the receiver for a few seconds and plug back in. If the screen saver still shows - call DTV.

Dct6200 can't find the serial number?


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.

Direct receiver is not responding to remote


if you go to: http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPageIF.jsp?assetId=P4380052#h:1020.450


it has different remote codes. you would have to select "satellite setop box" also you need the model # of the receiver which can be found (normally) behind a door on the front panel of the receiver on a sticker (where the access card and reset button are) if its not a directv receiver, (hughes, etc) then it would probably be on the back of the receiver you would see a sticker with the model # of this receiver.

the first code should be 00001 follow the instructions on how to program on that website.

Re: 322 DTV Receiver - snowy screen on tv 2


Lets check the modulator set up at the main location TV 1. Press menu - 6-1-5 this will display how the TV 2 IS SET UP. It should say 22 air and if not use the arrow keys on the remote to change that info. Once you are done click done and go to the TV2 and see if it is working. It should be if you are set to view air or antenna channels on the TV2. If not there needs to be a few more things done to isolate the issue. Let me know and we will go from there. Thhanks for using Fix Ya.

Need codes to program my remote for a dirct tv box


http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPageIF.jsp?assetId=P4380052#h:1020.989

there is the website to find the codes. you have to know the model of the receiver first. this can be found in 2 places if there is a door that you can open on the front of the recever, it would be on a sticker there with the model # or it could be on the back of the receiver on a sticker there. when searching for codes look under "SATELLITE SET TOP BOX"

Directv h20 receiver has low volyage to the lnb.


Check inside the receiver for a defective LM317 IC or a TIP42C transistor, but before that you should check for proper voltage from the power supply to that IC.
LM317/TIP42C control the switching of voltages that power up the LNB, you should be getting 14 volts for vertical channels and 18 volts for horizontal.
Good Luck.

Level But not quality


If you only get level signal on the traxis 1500, it means that you may have a defective LM317 IC or a TIP42C. This part is mounted on a heatsink.
Try checking the LNB frecuency as well and make sure you have the same settings as your Pansat.
Good Luck.
