Question about DISH Network 311 DTV Receiver

1 Answer

TV image goes black for a second and then the picture comes back on

We have two DV3 Dish receivers with a Panisonic TV (13+yrs old) and Samsung CRT-TV (3 yrs old); recently the picture will go black for a second or two and then come back on, this happens from every 5 minutes to every 90 minutes. Is this a receiver issue, or a tv issue or an electrical power issue in the house? thanks for your help, Pcampble01

Your issue really requires greater troubleshooting. I could begin to explain the multitude of possibilties but the list would be lengthy. You will be better served to call dish and ask for a service call. If you have the home protection plan it may cost you 29.99 for the tech to come out. If you do not have the protection plan it could be added at the time you contact dish. Ensure you call 1-800-333-3474 to get accurate information. This is Dish Network's Customer service line and not a third party such as a a retailer. Th e problem could be the LNB,foilage,cabling, connectors, groundblock, etc....
Hope this assists you. Thanks for using Fix Ya and please let me know if I can be of more assistance.

I cant get a picture or sound on my tv but i can get the dish guide and can change channels


Hi Octavia, I would be happy to assist you with your issue. It sounds like you are experiencing what we call a black screen with Banner. Please reset the receiver by unplugging it from the power outlet for 10 seconds and then when you plug it back in, allow the receiver to reboot and then the picture should come back. If you are still having issues and need additional assistance, please feel free to PM DISH directly on facebook here: http://goo.gl/dgbNL Thank you!

Hi there Dillon Snoga, my name is Kimberly and I form part of the Social Media Department with DISH. It is my pleasure to help you today. Please reset the receiver by unplugging it from the wall outlet for 10 seconds, plug it back in, allow it to power back on by itself, allow it to acquire signal and download the guide.

I disconnected power from the tv to install carpet & im not sure if iam hooking it back up correctly


danny_burse

I am assuming when you say you disconnected power from the TV to install carpet, you disconnected the cables from the receiver to your TV. Depending upon your installation, you have a cable that comes from the dish located outside that is connected to a splitter and has 2 cables coming off the splitter. The 2 cables will connect to SAT 1 and SAT 2 on the back of the receiver. Your TV 2 connection either goes directly to your TV 2 or goes to a second separator, connected to the UHF/VHF connector. If you still have problems with the connections, please email me at ray.calo@dishnetwork.com and I will assist you further.

Dish network changed to snow when I tried to change station to channel 13. I pressed "power" for 5 seconds with no change.


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service here. It sounds like when you try to change channels with your remote, it is changing the channels on your TV and not your Satellite Receiver. In the top left corner of the Dish Network remote is an SAT button. When you try to change channels on the Satellite receiver this button should be lighting up. If the TV button lights up, it means the remote is working the TV. Press and release the "SAT" button after you have the picture back on the TV and it should work normally. I hope this resolves your remote issue!

I have a blue screen with a no signal on my tv with dish network how do i fix this


Hi. This is Phil with DISH Network. Sorry to hear that you are having an issue with the video, lets get that fixed. There are some thing we want to check first. Let's first make sure that both the TV, receiver, and everything in between, are powered on. Then we want to find out which channel your TV is on, this can be done by turning the TV off then back on again. If your TV is connected by a coax cable, for receivers with a TV1 output on the back panel: Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4 so that picture appears. For receivers with a Home Distribution output on the back panel (the TV without the receiver by it, or TV2) tune TV to channel 62 or 75. If non-coax, cycle through TV inputs until picture appears. These steps usually fix that issue; if they don't then check that the connections between your DISH receiver, your TV, and any component(s) (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) in between are secure. If the issue is only on one receiver, unplug the receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in, wait for the receiver to turn on by itself, usually withing 5 mins, and the picture should come in after that. If you have any follow up questions let me know.

Screen "blinks" black every few minutes - Dish Network


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. When the picture alternately goes from normal to a black screen, it is an indication of an intermitten signal issue. You can attempt to reset the receiver box by unplugging it from the power for 10 seconds and letting it reboot. Hopefully this will resolve your issue.

Satellite Receiver to Yamaha Receiver


It sounds like either on the 612 or the Yamaha Receiver that the HDMI port is faulty, thus causing the flashing picture. It sounds like the 612 to the TV works fine. I would recommend replacing the Yamaha, and if problem persists then try replacing the 612.
