I have a blue light and an orange but my tv will not come on

If you are referring to an R15 (the big box in the picture with your post), there should be 3 blue lights on the front of the DVR: one to the far left (power), a big circle in the middle, and one on the right indicating the resolution the DVR is currently trying to send to the TV. The orange light indicates that something is being recorded; either a show or something from DTV like channel listings. The orange light has nothing to do with your TV but may indicate that the DVR is downloading setup information.

As for turning your TV on, when you first get DTV, the DVR remote does not know how to talk to your TV set, only the DVR, so you have to teach the remote to talk to your TV. To do that, turn your TV on with the remote that came with it (or the on/off switch on the TV if you're a dinosaur like me) and change the TV input to whatever input the DVR is attached to - usually HDMI or Component. If you see something (a TV show, a guide, a DirecTV logo, etc.) you're in the right place. Now hit the Menu button on the DTV remote and you'll see a menu on the left that includes "Setup". Use the arrow buttons on the DTV remote to move to Setup, press Select, and then select Program Remote. Follow those instructions carefully, step by step, and you should be all set. (Caveat: I am working from memory so the exact wording might not match and I might have missed a menu level. If so, I apologize.)

Why dose my panasonic tv keep shuting off by it salf and then got wait a while for it to come on

This could be simple or a bit harder. First thing to check is your sleep settings on the setup menu. If those are not turning it off then I would check the power supply.

I have direct tv dvr my remote wont work,but remote works on my other recivers,has the ir gone bad and can it be fixed


It's possible that the IR receiver in the DVR has failed. It's unlikely to be the remote as it works with other devices. If the remote was working with the DVR before, then in most cases the problem can be corrected by resetting the DVR as follows:

Press the RED RESET BUTTON behind the access card panel on the front of the DVR. Wait for the program guide information to update then try the remote again.

Try this and post back if you need further assistance.

DVR is inaccessible. Error 024 "Unable to access this feature at this time. Data not available." SAT connection fine - just dvr issue.

You will need the receiver replaced as the hard drive is developing an internal error.Thanks for using Fix Ya.

How do I know if my Directv HR22-100 HD receiver is dead?

one last thing you can do, if it doesnt work the dvr is dead. reset the dvr and wait for the hello screen and then the screen will go black. when it turns black, hold the down arrow (on the front of the dvr) and the record button for at least 5 secs. this will re-format the hard drive. if it doesnt work the dvr is dead
