A lot of times this is a power supply issue, if you are of the electrically adept you can check the capacitors on the power supply, it usually tends to be one of the 2200 mf ones.... otherwise there are places you can send it to for repairs, or it's also possible to just buy a new powersupply from http://www.weaknees.com
I had the same problem. after doing a little research and calling Directv, I discovered the problem was the hard drive crashed.
I considered buying one from directv, but was informed it was a lease.
Luckily a friend just switched his TV service to Verizon FiOS and had a DTV DVR with he sold me me.
Also saw some on ebay for under $50.00. That might be an option for anyone who wants to use the buy to own option.
I now plan on seeing if there is a way to save the recorded programming on the kaput unit. Failing that. it gets "recycled".

The Dish 625 as with the other Dish DVR systems has a fan built into the back of the unit. The fan runs nearly all the time to keep the internal drive cool. Sometimes the fan sounds louder that normal. what I do from time to time is take my shop vac and or the small vac u you use to clean your computer. and clean the vents around the fan. I do this on my desk top computer also.. Hope this helps.
Hi, In order to record from VCR to DVR You need to connect "VCR audio/video output RCA jacks " to" DVR 's Audio / Video Input RCA jacks.. .. use either "RCA analog (red/white+ yellow ) " or
"optic " cable.(any standard optical cable )..if exist .optic is the best way to
connect it..Remember your VCR 's "OUT" goes into" IN "of DVR .. pls also
remember,wherever you connect your VCR on your DVR ,you should switch
the source selector accordingly to correspond to the connection on the
back... Now you can record anything on DVR which played in VCR .. Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
The DVR fan does typically runs most of the time the receiver is on (or recently turned off). Since the DVR controls the option of stopping live programming and skipping back it is always in use so the fan will continually run. If the sound continues non-stop for the next 48-72 hours we may want to send a replacement receiver for you. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if it does continue to be troublesome.
If this is a TV2 location take the remote to the location of the DVR.
Open the door on the right side of your receiver.
Press SYS INFO.
Press Record multiple times on your remote.
Exit the screen and see if the remote works, if not replace the batteries and repeat steps 1-4
If the remote still doesnt work, and this is a tv2 location (no receiver in the room with the tv) check the antenna on the back of your receiver, make sure that it is connected tightly and standing straight up.
If none of this works call Dish and ask for a new remote.
Hi piautewith the VIP622 receiver connecting to your DVD/VCR player you will need theinput/output jacks. To setup recordings to your VCR/DVD player, you will want torun from receiver output to VCR/DVD input and from VCR/DVD output to TV input. Thefan on the VIP622 receiver is just like the fan in a computer tower. Even ifthe receiver is off the fan will still run to keep unit the right temperature foryour DVR receiver.

it seriously sounds like a bad ball baring in the psu, possibly needs maintenance or replacement if it;ls a whining sound like metal on metal then its ball bearings but also can make several other sounds, like clicking and even tapping, while uncommon for fan bearings and hard drive to go bad at sometime it's possable. but the prob seems to be fan related
If you unplug the dvr and open it up, unscrew the screws and just open the casing. Can you see any battery inside it? It would look similar to a watch battery most likely. My security dvr will do that and I have to replace the internal battery, not sure if tivo like dvrs are the same though.
Your not going to be able to connect in series (not sure if thats your goal) since your limited by the type of connections you can use. Your receiver is going to have to be switched depeneding on what source you want to listen too. DVR, DVD, etc. HDMI is going to important for your TV connection. Radio Shack has cheap HDMI cables.
So... connect HDMI from DVR to HDTV this will give you sound and picture to TV. Connect DVR optical or coaxial ( RCA if you dont care about surround) to Receiver to give you DVR sound thru Receiver input.
Connect DVD to receiver via optical/coaxial/rca for DVD sound thru receiver (again RCA is not recommended for surround).
Connect Component video to HDTV(or HDMI if TV has second HDMI input) to give you video from DVD.
Connect Yellow video or S-video from DVR to DVD recorder input to allow recording from DVR. Also connect red/white audio to (same) DVD input.
That should cover it.
