Question about DISH Network ViP622 DVR DTV Receiver / 180-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

Same problems. Fan is whirling. Light flashes. No Video Signal.

Second Dish VIP622 in three months. We have had dish for 3 years with hardly ever a problem. We "upgraded" to high def receiver, 622. We have had nothing but problems. The first receiver would periodically go out and we would have no video signal. After about 30 min it would work again. Finally it quit working. Fan kept whirling, lights would flash and no video signal. Dish sent us a new receiver. It has worked for one month now the same thing. One tech told us not to plug it into a surge protector. Dish sent a another tech to the house and he told us that these receivers are no good and we should ask for a 722. They do not have the same problems.

The 622's are good receivers it is just that on occasion we get a shipment that has been mishandled. This causes the issues however a 722k is a good choice. Thanks for using Fixya.

VIP622 DVR is working one tv in the living room but not in the bedroom?

Debra Beuthling-Gentry,

I would be happy to provide more information on this, though I just need a bit more information. It sounds like the receiver is in dual mode since both lights are on. What exactly is happening on the second TV? Is it a blank screen with no picture, or is there a message that pops up? If it's a blank screen with no picture, try putting the TV itself on Ch. 60 or 73 and see if anything changes.

My dish network reciever vip622 dvr fan runs all the time. Is this normal

I have the same issue and find it unbelievable that the Dish Network DVR is so noisy. It's virtually a deal killer, except now I have the damn dish on my roof. Why can't Dish commission a better quality product?

Light in the set box is not changing red light is flickering. Green light is not coming inspite of changing the batteries in the remote control. I am having Dish TV in my house.

Hi, this is Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. It sounds like you are experiencing a power issue with your Dish network VIP622 DVR. You can try resetting the Receiver box by unplugging it for 10 seconds (if it is plugged into a surge protector, for the purpose of troubleshooting, plug directly into a wall outlet). Wait for receiver to reacquire satellite signal. If you are still having an issue, you will need to contact Dish Network because the receiver box will probably need to be replaced. I hope this information helps you.

My DISH Network dual dvr that I had a year started shutting down on its own. The lights would go off but the fan would still run on high. It would do this 15-20 times a day. Got a brand new dvr last week....


That replacement receiver may be experiencing technical problems. I apologize for the inconvenience of having the 2nd receiver shutting on/off. If unplugging and plugging the receiver back into the electrical outlet hasn't resolved the issue, please call 1-800-333-3474 so we can either send a replacement or have a tech come out to your home. I hope this helps.

To setup recordings to your VCR/DVD player, you will want torun from receiver output to VCR/DVD input and from VCR/DVD output to TV input. Thefan on the VIP622 receiver is just like the fan in a computer tower. Even ifthe receiver is off the fan will still run to keep unit the right temperature foryour DVR receiver.
