Question about Samsung SIR-S300W DirecTV DTV Receiver
My receiver won't shut off and there is no picture. When pushing the power button the unit does not shut off. I have to unplug it to turn it off. It is also making a slight clicking sound. When I turn on the tv, I do not get a picture but a continuous slight jolt of a black screen as if it's trying to register but it does nothing. I left the unit unplugged while at work and still the same thing. I've had it for about 5.5 years. Any idea what this is?

Your best bet would definitely be to upgrade recievers. You can call directv and see if they will give you a deal, or check ebay or call your local directv electronics dealer.
Hope this helps.

call direct tv and ask for a reset. When you do not use your receiver leave it on and connecetd or it will not receive updates and will forget what it once knew. Actually I think you can use the automated system and use (I think...not sure) code 712 to reset all your receivers with out waiting for help.
