SOURCE: Suddenly, my Hughes DVR 15

Hi,

This is more often related to power supply failure.You need to check for poor solder connections, defective capacitors, diodes and resistors. As unplugging didn't help, it would need to be repaired. It is not advisable to take this to a tech as the cost of repair would be more than the cost of the new one. If you have electronics repair experience, could read schematics and would be able to keep precautions, i could tell you few pointers and you could repair it yourself.Unless you could go to ebay or other auction sites. You could get the same model used for less than 50 bucks.I have seen a couple of them on ebay.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

This is a common problem. There are several capacitors on the power supply and logic board that are bad. Replacement of these parts has restore all units that I have looked at.

On the power supply I would replace at a minimum:
C14 - 4.7ufd 50v UPW1H4R7MDD
C4 - 1ufd 50v UPW1H010MDD
C8 - 100ufd 25v UHE1E101MED
C10 - 470ufd 16v UHE1C471MPD
C12 - 1000ufd 10v UHE1A102MPD

There are 4 others in the supply that were not grossly bad.
C1 - 22ufd 400v EEU-EE2G220
C7 - 220ufd 25v UHE1E221MPD
C11 - Same as C10
C13 - Same as C10

Logic board:
E5 - 33uf 35v EEU-FM1A471
E6 - Same as E5

Part Numbers of replacement caps are Nichicon or Panasonic.

Note: Caps on the logic board are extremely hard to replace due to the internal ground plane.

Contact me if this is beyond your skills for possible repair.

Cm7000pal dvr stuck in wizard on continue in searching for channels seams to load on hdd then goes to continue


I have 3 of these 7000pals and 2 have done a similar thing, one of them did it twice. After the Loading Channel Master screen hangs for a time, they would restart. Then the same cycle would keep repeating. It seems like after years of adding and deleting timers, the DVR's software gets "confused". I've noticed that twice it happened on the hour just as a program timer started while I was watching a program through the DVR. ZAP...Locked up! The power button would not even work to turn it off.

The steps below fixed all three instances of this failure.

To unlock the Channel Master CM7000PAL DVR:

1. Unplug the recorder from the wall outlet and DISCONNECT THE ANTENNA. Now plug it back into the wall power outlet.(This will keep the recorder from freezing and rebooting)

2. let it go thru it's normal bootup, tv guide search, etc.

3. When you are able to, hit MENU and then go up to TIMERS. Delete all of the record timers. Unplug it, reconnect the antenna, and plug it back in.

4. After a now a proper bootup, re-program you timers and you will be good to go.

5. And the best thing is, all of your pre-recorded shows will still be there on the hard drive.

I would suggest that you do a yearly "TIMER CLEAN" to avoid this trouble in the future.

What is DISH Solo DVR VIP 612 Limited Mode?

You can program your remote control in Limited Mode to keep from accidentally changing the channel on your TV or VCR and causing a snowy or blue screen.

  • When the remote control is in Limited Mode for TV mode, you will only be able to use POWER, MUTE, and VOLUME functions for your TV.
  • When the remote control is in Limited Mode for VCR mode, you will only be able to use POWER and the VCR functions for your VCR.
Note: Limited Mode is not used with amplifiers (AUX mode).

I hope that helps.

The channel master locked up so I unplugged it. Now, when I plug it back in it just sits and says loading Chanel master tv but does not load. What should I do?

Sharp LC-37DB5U stuck on one channel. Won't respond to anything. Put in a new motherboard and same problem persists. Sound and picture are fine


I could be wrong, but it sounds like the TV hasn't gone through channel setup. You have to do this in order for the TV to "learn" the channels, assuming you are using cable. If you are using cable run channel search in the setup menu and see if that changes anything. Can you change channels by manually entering in the channel # and hitting enter?

I have the gray Comcast DVR remote control-it is so unresponsive!


I called Comcast about this today and they had me turn off the TV, unplug the DVR, unplug the coaxle cable, wait a second, rescrew in the coaxle cable, replug in the DVR. It worked! The DVR is snappy like it used to be. Such a relief because it was soooo annoying. Good luck.

Tv does not respond to channel changes


The simpliest solution is always the best - I called the cable service provider; they reported an outage and quickly remedied the situation - but also tried to sell me their digital TV package. Thanks for your response.
