I've had this same problem happen a number of times to mine and all I do to fix it is to disconnect the battery for about 20 seconds and then reconnect and power on. Has fixed it every time (so far)! Hope this helps!
Use plug-in power supply and leave on channel 1. Call XM (1-800-XM-RADIO) and ask them to "refresh" your radio. WAIT 1/2 hour, then check your channels. Make sure you have a decent signal too (can hear Channel 1 okay) before you call XM for the 'refresh signal' for your new radio.

I am using viewsat extreme 2000. After downloading the new program PC-STB. Front panel power has gone. Only rear light on. All view has gone.
Would you please send me by email, how can I solve this problem? I shall be grateful if you please reply.
OK I did my research. Apparently there is a little chip inside the receiver that has burnt. We need to take our receiver the the people who know how to fix them and replace the chip with a new one. It might take time as from what I hear it could be any chip? Hope this helps

This is not the site for what you are looking for, you need the fta site. You can go to dss****** and search for any FTA sites, regarding the view sat. If you have anyone programming for you, you will need to take back. If you are trying to DIY then look for a FTA site that will teach you how to JTag your equipment. If im correct you may have to go inside to repair. If it does not reset then Jtag is the best option. I think dsstester or the other sites can help if you look in their forums. Hope this helps!
