Question about TV Receivers & DVRs

1 Answer

''Blew'' my power strip and can't reset it.

I have a MonsterPower Home Theatre Power Center HTS 950 power strip/surge protector. I ''blew'' it when I added a portable heater to it. It usually has just the tv/dvr/dvd/speakers plugged in. I can't reset it. Any suggestions?

Why do I lose my recording schedule when I turn TV off? If TV is on Humax records perfectly.


Do you have a power strip or surge protector that recognizes when the power is disabled to the primary item, it automatically disables power to all other items? Easy way to check is to turn tv off and look for lights on other items plugged into surge protector.

To whom it may concern,

You're likely either experiencing overheating or power cycling.
Put the receiver into a well circulated area, and let it cool down. If this does not alleviate your problem you will need a replacement box. Be sure to set up insurance for your account before you ask for a new box to be sent.

Hello!

Bypass the surge protector or power strip if there is one.

Has the receiver been replaced for the same issue multiple times? If it has, there may be a grounding issue causing electrical surges. If this is the case, send me an email at thomas.faust@dish.com and we can review additional options with you!

It is not working


I'm sorry to hear your DISH Network 311 receiver is not working, in order to further assist you can you please provide me with additional information? For example, was it working and has suddenly stopped working? Does it power on, can you see a light on the front of the receiver? Is it plugged directly into a electrical outlet on the wall, or is it plugged into a power strip/surge protector? If it is plugged into a power strip/surge protector please attempt to bypass and try plugging the receiver directly into the electrical outlet. If you'd like you can post a response if you have additional information to provide or need further assistance. I hope this helps!

Hello tsaucier, my name is MichaelHurst with DISH Network. Is your receiver plugged directly to the wall outletor to a surge protector/power strip? Unplug the DISH receiver for 10 secondsand plug back in. (It may take up to 5 minutes for the reset process to becompleted). Ifthereceiver is currently plugged into a surge protector, bypass the surgeprotector and plug the receiver directly into a wall outlet. If you are stillhaving issues try another outlet. If this doesn't remedy the issue then thereceiver will have to be replaced.

Dead unit


I'm sorry to hear about your DISH Network DVR-625 receiver. If you don't mind me asking & to allow me to further assist you, what exactly do you mean by "dead unit"," For example, was it working and has suddenly stopped working? Does it power on, can you see any lights on the front of your receiver? Is it plugged directly into a electrical outlet on the wall, or is it plugged into a power strip/surge protector? If plugged into a power strip/surge protector, please attempt to bypass by plugging the receiver directly into an electrical outlet- if plugged into an electrical outlet please try a different outlet. I hope these few tips may help but if not and you need further assistance please feel free to contact me @ Kirstie.Filosa@Dishnetwork.com :)

hi zackmann37! I will be glad to assist you on this issue. 1st lets try to isolate the problem, unplug the power of you dvr receiver from the power strip or surge protector and leave it unplug for 1min. after 1min, plug in directly to the power outlet not on the power strip or surge protector. Why? some of the power strip does not give the 100% current needed by the dvr system thats why its malfunctioning, it gives the 100% power voltage but not the 100% current. then let the dvr reboot by itself once its rebooting you will see attention 015 then it will go on a progress until it download the programming guide and you got you tv shows, observe it until the next morning, leave the dvr plug in directly to the wall, now before you sleep, turn off the receiver by pressing the power buttonon the remote to turn off the green light. once you wake up in the morning, press the power button and the green light and the amber light will turn on and it will show your program, but if the problem still exist, you need to call on 1-800-333-3474 talk to dish tech support and tell them that you need a replacement receiver, you have a dvr lost of function. pls feel free to get in touch if you have any query

My HD VIP 612 Solo DVR keeps freezing every now and then during a show and then manually resetting. This happens maybe once or twice a week. What do I do?


Hi! i will be more than glad to assist you in this concern, lets isolate 1st the problem, if the power of your vip 612 is connected to a power strip, unplug it from the power strip or surge protector for 1minute, then plug in, it will turn on by itself, then you will see, attention 015, let the progress finish and it will download the programming guide, then it will show the picture on the tv. granting the problem didnt exist., it means that the problem is solve, the surge protector or power strip is the one doing it to the receiver, why? sometime the power strip or surge protector does not give the 100% curreny needed by the dvr system, main job of the power strip or surge protector is to protect from power surge thats all but it does not regulate the current needed by the dvr. Lets say it freeze again, this is waht we are going to do, press the menu button on the upper left of the remote, once u see the main menu, press 6,1,1 on the remote and it will go to the point dish screen, selct check switch that is on the uppeer right of the screen, then it will go to the installation summary, select test and it will run a check switch test, it will go on testing up to 1 of 3 or 4 it depends on the sat you have on the lnbf. once its done, it should show the whole installation summary, port1-119-ok, port2-110-ok, port3-129 or 61.5, once you see it, select done and it will go to the point dish, select done and cancel all the way out, it will show you attention 015 and then it will download the programming guide, then you got the picture, observe it if the problem dont exist anymore. if the problem dont exist, then u fix the problem but granting the problem still there, you need to call 1-800-333-3474 call the tech support of dish network and inform them the problem that you are experiencing for the past few weeks and the steps that you did.. this is a dvr lost of function, dvr is bad and it needs to be replace.. if you have any query pls feel free to get in touch

RD-XS32 DVD power surge


Time for a replacement. In the future, get a power surge protector that protects not only your power cords, but also your cable input/outputs to your receiver and tv. They're a little pricey, but definitely worth their weight in gold!

Dish ViP622 keeps crashing - on 6th unit from Dish network


the 622 receivers are very sensitive to static electricity build up, if you have been through more than two receivers i would demand having a technician come to your home to check grounding of your dish system, while he is there he will also check the grounding where you plug the receivers in, i suggest not using any surge protectors/power strips and, as debmaldo did, try different outlets, if you have a very high end surge protector, it should be okay but for troubleshooting purposes try a different wall receptacle
