Receiver worked last night. I turned it on this morning and it just clicks over and over. Never comes on. I have to unplug it just to make it stop clicking.


Hello,

What is the model number of this receiver? It could be in Protection Mode. Is power button on the unit flashing red? If so, that's protection mode. It could be as simple as a speaker wire got crossed or cut but it could also be something internal.
Step 1: Label all wires plugged into the receiver so you know where to put them back.
Step 2: Unplug everything, including the power cable.
Step 3: Leave it unplugged for 10 minutes.
Step 4: Plug in *just the power cable*
Does it still click? If so, it's an internal component that's bad.
Does the clicking stop? If so, add one wire at a time, waiting 1 minute before plugging in another wire. Keep adding wires till the clicking comes back. Once the clicking comes back, unplug the last wire you plugged in. That wire has a problem. It could be the wire itself or the device connected to the wire. If it's a speaker wire, for example, it could be that the wire got chewed or cut, or it could be that the speaker got fried inside.

When you cycled the power, did you just push the power button?

If so, to really do a power cycle you need to unplug, let sit off for 30 seconds, then plug back in.

Suspect the printer's program is scrambled (didn't "boot" right)

Could there have been any power fluxuations/lightning during the night? Even if it wasn't on, if it was plugged in the wall then there could have been damage. Are you using a universal power device or a current protector?

Unplug the unit from the wall, wait 20 to 30 seconds for the power capacitors to disipate their energy and then plug it back in. This will do a HARD reset.

DVR 510 WON'T WORK ANYMORE


Did you have a power outage last night or lightning strike? If not unplug the receiver for approxiamately 30 seconds and plug it back in to the wall plate. Try to turn it on now. If it fails to power up it may indicate that the receptacle is bad or the receiver. Swap the plug from the receiver to the known good outlet the tv plugs into and try to power it up. If it fails the receiver is dead and you will need a new one. 510 are due to be discontinued with Dish so your local provider may not have one to replace yours with and you may be left with the option of upgrading the receiver, seeing if Customer Service can send you one out if you have a warranty program or buying one from a retailer or online.
Hope this helps you.

I have a sharp AQUOS, it was working last night but since the heavy lightning no longer working, power point is OK


Unplug it, wait a minute, then plug it back in. If it still doesn't work, you may have taken a lightning pulse and damaged the unit. You'll need a repairman. BTW, your homeowners insurance may pay for the repairs.
