Vip211, green light on (solid), but no signal?

For 2 days my receiver would randomly shut off and reboot to the screen where you have to wait for 5 minutes as it loads..... It did this twice the first day and on the second day it wouldn't even stay on long enough to do the 5 minute reload. We unplugged it for 15 minutes and plugged it into a separate outlet than what it had currently been on. Now we have the green light on (solid), but the tv says "no signal" which means we have no audio or video. We tried unplugging the HDMI cable and using the RCA cables, but this didn't change anything. NO picture, NO sound. Blank TV screen saying "No signal". Any ideas? And if it is junk- how much is this going to cost me through Dish Network to get it replaced? We don't record our programming, but we do care about HD. We have had this well over 2 years.

SOURCE: "weak signal" on my RCA scenium

Hey! I have the same problem as you. But! this would happen only when I got a power outage. Unplug the TV for a couple of minutesand all was fine. For the last 5 day I have no TV. I have tried everything. All the out on the TV and I still get unusable signal. My rep told me to unplug for 24 Hours. Still didn't work. My menu option work as well and every time I put the TV on, off or if I change the input sound will come on for 2 seconde and stop. If I find the salution I will let you know. Gilles Ottawa

SOURCE: DVR/TV connection

With the RGB you have to run seperate audio ,I think you have ran the seperate cables for the sound but they are in the wrong place.try changing the RW from the DVR to the TV and you should get sound from them.The unfortunate truth about the HDMI is that the HDMI format has a problem effectivly communicating between components.I am a Directv certified High Definition technition and %50 of the TV's that I connect the HDMI to will not receive the signal.One trick that I have found that works is to make sure you have a picture on the RGB then connect the HDMI.Once you have these connected ,turn your TV off and unplug the power cord from the DVR for 30 sec then plug the DVR in and wait 5 minutes for it to power up then turn your TV on and switch to your HDMI input.This method sometimes works to "Jumpstart" the HDMI input on the TV .There is no guarantee that this will work but is sounds like for now this is your only option,GOOD LUCK.

DO you have manuals for all the units listed?
If not , try the Samsung consumer site.
It would take me quite a while to figure out your situation even with manuals and I have a business to run besides.

Also, ask some questions of Tech Support at Samsung..Let them KNOW how much you spent on their stuff.

God bless,

SOURCE: wavy lines and jogging TV picture

it could be any of the things you listed, the coaxial output on the dvr, where it says channels 3-4 out, the cable , or the coaxial input port on your tv. the dvd player is probably hooked up with rca cables (red white and yellow) so the reason you dont have the issue with it is because its on a different port, one solution would be to hook your receiver up to the tv using this kind of cable, this would also get you stereo sound, you would then watch dish network programming on a video input channel,
if you want to narrow the problem down, i would suggest hooking a vcr up with the cable thats connected to 3-4 out, play a tape and see if the issue continues, if not the issue is with the dvr, if so try a different coax cable, if this resolves the issue, the issue was the cable, if not unfortunately the issue is your tv

SOURCE: no dish network sound through denon 1609 receiver

check the setting for the HDMI connection at the Denon you may have to assign the HDMI audio setting also on the front of the Denon while in the DVR mode press the input mode button on the front of the Denon to select auto and if that doesn;t give you sound you will have to connect a cable from the DVR optical.coaxial or analog audio output to the Denon and setup for that type of audio connection

I have a Mitsubishi model WD-60737 and to make a long story short 1st time problem lamp replaced fine for a month til my uncle hooked a DVD player to my TV next day turned on with solid green light then TV kept turning off after 2 to 3 minutes of beingetting turned on and a solid red light to show after. What does that mean? It's a brand new lamp and worked for a month so why shut down now? Could my uncle have did something to where it shook up the circuits or something?

Blinking green light


Try disconnecting the computer from the printer and shutting it down by removing the power cord and then also shut down the computer for a minute or so and then reboot it and check in "Printers" and see if it has anything waiting to be printed and if so clear out the queue. Flashing green light indicates that the printer is receiving data from the computer and/or printing so you shut it all down and cold reboot to clear out the computer confusion in both the computer and the printer.

REPLACED POWER BOARD TV TURNS ON DISPLAYS PHILIPS AND SHUTS OFF ,BUT LIGHT BLUE INDICATOR LIGHT STAYS ON


If no signal (whatever the reason) most sets with a solid blue screen will shortly shut off.

A few things to try first:

Unplug set, a box if used, a receiver if you have it in line---wait a while and plug each back and wait to see if they reboot and restore signal.

Also look to see if you can get the set to a video input before it shuts off---A DVD etc should be connected and on when you try that.

Getting no signal from DishNetwork ViP211 reciever. green light is flashing continuously


Hello, my name is Becki Barned, and I'm with Dish Network customer service. The issue that you have here is, the receiver si rebooting. This process can last up to four hours. If it goes on for more than four hours, then you have a power issue. It does help to unplug the receiver for 10 seconds. If your receiver is not connected straight to the wall, go ahead and try to connect it to a power outlet on the wall. If that doesn't work, and if your issue has not already been resolved, blog back and we can help further.

I want to know where the red,yellow,blue, green,,white,and black wires go?


red and black are power and ground, blue and white are gps output signal connect those to 9 pin connector pins 2 and 5 and get a 9 pin(serial) cable to usb adapter for input to a laptop, charting or mapping program and you are good to go. just make sure if you are using xp to wait until the mapping program is running and searching for gps signal before you connect the serial or usb because windows thinks the signal is from a mouse and the cursor will turn into a raging crackhead jumping all over the screen and randomly clicking on whatever it touches.

I am starting to get NO SIGNAL blue screens using vip211


Your vip211 may have been forcing a software update if the green light was blinking but you for sure have problems if it still has the same issue, just call dish and have them send you a new one. The vip 211 is a great recvr, you can hook up an external hard drive and have a DVR with no DVR fee, however there is a one time cost of 39.95 to activate your Hard drive but witht eh issues you have ben having they would more than likely waive this cost for you. i would for sure ask if you need to replace the receiver.

Vip211 will not power up, no green light or signal?


Hi johnmcmillan with thereceiver not powering up we can try a few things to get the power on. Firstthing you will want to do is make sure the receiver is plugged directly intothe wall. If the receiver is plugged into the wall and the green light is noton you can do a reset by unplugging the power cord from the receiver for 10seconds and plug it back in. I will leave a link to help with this. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/receiver-no-power

PC or monitor, signal problems


your monitor is telling you it's on it's last legs..either that or your compaq has a bad video section. either is more vital than a video cable being loose.
