Question about Toshiba DVD Recorder AND Series2 TiVo 120GB DVR

Toshiba 40RV525U green power light comes on but TV does not

Brand new unit, just had it for four days.  Power on the TV and the green power light comes on but the unit is totally dead.
I assume that this unit just turned out to be a "lemon" and needs to be replaced since it's under warranty but was just wondering if anyone had a similar issue with an easy fix?
I'm probably just living in a dream world but thought I would just post the question anyway.

For the past two days, the DVR is unresponsive for about 2-3 hours in the morning. The unit seems to cycle on and off by itself every 30-40 seconds or so and I hear the fan running each time. I am not...


Hello, this is Luke, let me help you on your concern. A DVR which reboots by itself always means a power failure. Try to isolate the issue first by plugging in the DVR to a good power outlet. I suggest to plug it directly to a working wall outlet to make sure that it is not a power surge suppressor or a power strip device problem. Give the DVR at least 5 minutes to boot up. Allow it to do its own thing, and it should come on by itself. You will hear a spinning sound coming off it, which is normal. Within 5 minutes you should see a message on your tv screen. A good indicator that the receiver is on, are lights on it. Orange for mode, Green for TV1 And blue for TV2. You should have at least the orange light on, when the DVR on. Do a reset if it will not power on after 5 minutes, unplug the DISH receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in. Please have TV1 on during the whole process. Let me know if this help. Have a great day.

My receiver's Power light comes on when I aply power to the receiver but after 5 seconds goes off. Why?


dave2551,

When the receiver is rebooted, the power light will come on and then go out. This is normal. After several seconds the power light will illuminate again and it will acquire satellite signal. Again, when power is removed and restored to the receiver, it is normal for the green power light to go out and then illuminate again. I hope this helps.

My thomson DTI6300-16 red light keeps flashing


There is a known power supply fault on Thomson boxes. If you go to www.satcure.co.uk you`ll be able to order the parts needed. Be aware, you`ll have to be able to use soldering irons etc. as this requires you to remove components and refit new ones.
