Try this: Press the power button and hold it for about ten seconds and let the system reboot. Try to use the dvr again. If that was unsucessful try unplugging the receiver from the wall outlet for approxiamately 30 seconds and repower the systen and try again.
If these have not worked You can press menu-6-1-3 and view the system info screen. Go to the details options and select it. Once the details screen loads arrow all the way down until you see the values of which value 9 is the last one. If value 7 is not 4 you need the unit replaced. If all the above did not work the unit will still need replacing as the hard drive has locked up.
Dish has a new receiver called a 222k which has an expansion USB port that will allow you to use an external hard drive to use as the dvr as the 222k is not a DVR unit; it is a HD dual tuner. The external hard drive offers many advantages such as being able to take your recordings on the road, ability to keep recordings if the receiver fails, etc. Another awesome device they have also is called a sling box which will allow remote viewing of your Satellite from a remote location over a laptop, PDA, or cell phone.
I hope this helps you and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Bunker hill 67139 dvr hard drive wrong year 2058


The issue may be is that you have a DVD in your dvr , that still shoes that date and time. Just a possibility, not sure,. try to see if you can take DVD out of dvr, and use a new one. I happened to me but, the case was a vcr,and I had a recorded video tape which while playing , was showing a blue screen, with "no data received" which actually it was when no data vcr was receiving from cable at the time it was recording . If the problem still is not solved then there is issue with some circuits, and processors. Also you may want to check if Bunker Hill has any customer support, to check with them.

How can I transfer recordings to a hard drive?


Any external USB hard drive that uses a 3.5" hard drive (the larger drives they use in desktops) will work. These all come with an external power adapter you must plug into the wall.

The external hard drive units that use the smaller 2.5" hard drives are the ones they use in laptops. These require much less power, and can be powered by the PC's USB port although some do come with an optional power adapter. However the Dish receiver does not send enough power to its USB port to power the hard drive, which is why the tech told you to get one that has an external power supply.

Even then the DVR uses a drive format that your computer may not recognize. I don't know if there are tools out there that will let you connect a hard drive from a DVR, read and convert the TV shows stored there.


Another option is to buy a DVD recorder. This is like a VCR, only it uses a DVD disc and not a video tape. Connect the DVD recorder to the outputs on the DVR, and then set the DVD recorder so it will record from its input. (on my DVD recorder this is "IN2")

Put a blank DVD into the DVD recorder, start playing a show on the DVR, and hit record on the DVD recorder. When the show is finished, hit stop on the DVD recorder to stop recording. The advantage here is you can then play this DVD on any DVD drive. The disadvantage is DVD recorders only record in non-HD. You can still play a show in HD, but the recording you get won't be in HD. Also, the show has to record in real time. So if it's a 60 minute episode, it will take 60 minutes to record.

Dish 510 DVR that wont record properly or play paused TV show


Make sure that the software is correct. Should be P4.07
you can go into the DVR and replace the hard drive but I would suggest getting Dish Home Plan, Replace the receiver and then cancel the Home Plan. Talk to Dish Network and they will work with you.
