Just to clarify, the 004 error message is a potential problem with the LNB or switch connected between your dish and receivers.

You can run a check switch test by pressing your Menu button on the DISH remote. After the Main Menu displays on your TV, press the numbers 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 1 (Point Dish). At the Point Dish screen, highlight the Check Switch button and press select. On the Installation Summary screen, make a note of the Satellites and Device located above and below the green boxes. Highlight the Test button and press select. This will initiate the Switch installation test. After the test is completed, verify that the Satellites and Devices are the same. Cancel out of each screen till you are back to Acquiring Satellite Signal (015).

If the problem persist, please call 1-800-333-3474 and speak with Tech Support; we may need to send a tech to resolve the issue. I hope this helps.

The error code 04 is a two digit error code associated with the opening of dvr files and will more than likely require a technician to come out and troubleshoot the issue. More than likely the end result will be the replacement of the receiver. If they do have to replace the receiver there are some receivers that have a USB port that wil allow an external hardrive to be attached to the receiver. This feature will either give you the ability to have more recording time if the receiver is a DVR or allow you to record directly to the hardrive which will save you the DVR fee every month if the receiver is a non DVR. There is a one time fee of 39.99 to enable the USB port but that cost will be recouped after the first year alone if you get a non DVR unit. I hate to bear bad news but this is as accurate as I can be without being in your living room. I hope you understand. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Best thing to do to avoid all the charges and techs that are clueless is change your service to Direct TV.

Bunker hill 67139 dvr hard drive wrong year 2058


The issue may be is that you have a DVD in your dvr , that still shoes that date and time. Just a possibility, not sure,. try to see if you can take DVD out of dvr, and use a new one. I happened to me but, the case was a vcr,and I had a recorded video tape which while playing , was showing a blue screen, with "no data received" which actually it was when no data vcr was receiving from cable at the time it was recording . If the problem still is not solved then there is issue with some circuits, and processors. Also you may want to check if Bunker Hill has any customer support, to check with them.

Dish Network DVR 625 Problem with playback of recorded shows


It sounds as though the hard drive is about to go south on you soon and the receiver is going to need to be replaced however, in the interim you can change the options of the recordings and make it a default so that the recording continues past the end of the show. It is possible that extending this time will allow you to view the portion you want before it skips to the end. In order to do this press the guide button and select a program in the future. On the create timer screen select the option icon. You will now be at the timer options screen you can extend the time the recording will last after the end of the show and when it will begin recording prior to the show. I would also set this as your systems default so that it performs the same way regardless of what you are recording. According to the latest known receiver issues this is not identified as it is a common indication that the hard drive has an error internally. If this works I suggest that you have a replacement sent to you so that you do not lose the use of your DVR un-expectantly.Remember to watch all recorded events prior to replacement as you will lose that info when the receiver is swapped. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Playback issues


Assuming that there is no loss of signal detected by the system and an 015 message being presented onscreen and that you have adequate record time available than your hardrive in the receiver is almost gone. You will need to have the receiver replaced. When this is done you will lose all recorded programs. The Dish Vip series of receivers offer a USB port that can be used to either expand the recording capacity of a DVR receiver with an external hardrive or if you get a non dvr unit e.g. 211, 222 you can eliminate the DVR fee each month by turning the option on for the external hardrive at a one time fee of 39.99. This will save you money by not paying the dvr fee anymore and alleviate having your recordings being lost if the receiver ever goes bad. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya.

When watching DVR recordings, the playback freezes


One of two things may be occurring. The first is a Line Of Sight issue may have been created if you have a limited LOS by wind moving foliage interrupting the signal. This will usually be preceded by pixelization or blocking appearing on the screen. The other instance is the hard drive in the receiver is faulty and in need of replacement. I will almost certainly assure you it is the latter of the two. You can upgrade the receiver to gain the ability to use an external hard drive to download your recordings so that the next time you need a receiver replaced you won't lose your recordings. The other benfit is that if you get a receiver tht does not have a DVR but is able to use an external hard drive you will save the cost of the DVR fee each month which in a year will save you thirty one dollars as there is a 39.99 one time charge to turn this capability on. In the first year alone you will have recouped almost the entire cost of the one time fee and in the second year will have probably recouped the cost of the external hardrive also.
Thanks for using Fix Ya. If you need further assistance please let me know.
