Operating Tempature error

When plug the hr10-250 in it seems like its going to start up fine, but then a screen comes up and says the reciever has been shut down because the tempature was too high. The fan is working perfectly and there is plenty of air flow. The receiver is stone cold but still comes up with this error. Any suggestions?

It could be 6.3a or b, they both had this issue sometimes. More likely, your motherboard and power supply are causing the problem. I would send it out for repair to ccs.

Re: Operating Tempature error

This indicates either the teperature sensor has gone bad or one of the components has developed what is called a hot spot and is shutting down because of that. Now if you own this deveice, not rent, but own it you could open it up and using freeze spray, hit each of the microprocessors and see which one eliminates the problem and either reapply heat sink paste or make sure proper contact with the heat sink is possible.

612 dish reciever fan runs but the reciever will not work. I get no picture and the reciever does not respond to the remote or the controls on the front on the unit.

Hi bradpratt7my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I was going over your post andwanted to check something's with you. The first thing you will want to do ismake sure the power cord is plugged directly into the wall and if it is pleaseunplug it for 10 seconds and plug it back in. After you plug it in it willpower up on it's own and you should see a DISH Network screen, if not and yousee the Green power light on the receiver you will need to cycle through theinputs of the TV until you see a DISH screen. If you go through the inputs andstill don't see the DISH screen I will need to talk with you further to assistyou, I will leave my e-mail with you so you can reach me directly.

Power will not stay on to VIP 211 receiver

Hi! This is Matt Gonzales with DISH Network. When a receiver will not stay powered on properly, and you have tried unplugging it and also plugging it into a different outlet, the reciever will need to be replaced. When a receiver is on properly the green light should stay steady

There seems to be no power when it is plugged in

If something else works in the outlet that reciever is plugged in to, the reciever is fried. Try to charge your phone or plug in a clock where the reciever is. Outlet might be connected to a light switch, for a lamp or something. If you have a light switch you don't what it does, this might be it. Hope it helps.

People are blue on my dish network

Most likely you are connected to your TV via component video (green, blue, and red). The first thing I would check is the red cable making sure it is plugged in all the way to both the TV as well as the sat rcvr.
