Cable not working!!

My cable box is no longer sending any signal to my TV. The small light on the front of the receiver is blinking on and off, non-stop. Does that mean something? What is wrong with it... how do I get it to start working again??

Re: cable not working!!

Good day.

Try to check first for the wiring connections from your cable modem to your TV . Then pull out the plug of your cable modem from the outlet. Leave it be for 5 mins and then plug again.

Tv has no signal

The TV you are trying to connect to may be an older type and not a DIGITAL receiver. The old ANALOG type no longer work with the Digital applications unless to have a CONVERTER BOX.

Doesn't receive signal from remote control

if it works intermittenly then the remote dosent need reprogrammed. SOoooo....

line of site comes to mind. your box needs to see what your remote shoots out. sometimes something ends up in front of the reciever spot on the cable box (FYI: a flashlight at the right angle can help find the sweet spot on most devices)

maybe the dvr is going bad watch EVERYTHING you want to see one last time and have it swapped (like death, you can't take anything with you)

good luck (I hope its just a line of sight problem)

Motorola DVR DCX3501-M loses power and guide info resets

We call it "flashing 8's" and a lot of things can cause it.

1st one of the signals that the cable provider sends to the box, we call it a "hit", will reset the box and tell it redownload
2nd I find dirty power (poor wiring, UPS or surge protector failing) can send the box spikes of power that make it think it recieved a hit.
3rd could be a problem with your cable signal. signal too high, yes it is possible to have too good a signal. maybe a bad amp in the alley behind your place or on your building. (any neighbors having trouble?)
4th maybe its a bad box.... gotta go bad sometime.

good luck

Cannot get TV 2 remote control to work

Hi, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could help. It sounds like you may need to readdress your remote to your DISH Network receiver box. You are also going to want to make sure that you have fresh batteries in the remote and if you do not replace them with new ones. I will list here for you the instructions for readdressing your remote to your receiver box. I hope these instructions help and if you have any further questions or concerns feel free to email me directly at

Instructions for readdressing your remote to your receiver box.
  1. Take your TV2 remote to your TV1 location where the receiver box is.
  2. Go to System Info screen.You can do this by pressing the menu button twice on the TV1 remote or by pressing the system info button on the front of the receiver box. You may need to open the small door on the front right side of the receiver box to locate the buttons.
  3. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  4. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote. Change the number to something different then what is listed in the small white square next to secondary remote address.
  5. Press the pound (#) button.
  6. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful, the number selected in step 4 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

Motorola cable box/dvr/remote problem.

Will not power up

Have cable provider send an IN (Iniatializing) hit to box to determine if box is responding to and communicating with signal. If that doesn't work then try yourself to unplug and plug the unit back to power and if that does not solve the issue then box more than likely has a bad power supply.

TIVO DVR : Won't Change Channels

Set up your infrared blasters connected from your IR port on the Tivo and by placing the two lead lights in front of your cable box so it (the cable box) can read the signal.  Then go to Channel settings accessed through Tivo Central and follow the questions. It will ask you to change channels until the remote is working correctly.  This all worked on a different "input" on my Mitsubishi TV (it has multiple inputs.  I have the cable input on a different "input" to make it work.  Hope this helps.  Call TIVO tech assistance because they are the ones who talked me through this.

Is it the DCT or the cable signal?

if you are getting signal of the proper strength and quality the cabling is good.the problem is the box trying to decode the signals.a lot of signals are encripted and have to be decoded by the box.if the box is not responding fast enough you will see bloches on the tv.if you see scrambled channel you are not payinfor that channel.and if you are paying for a channel and it comes up scrambled your box is not working correct.get your company to upgrade the box.

No Satelite Signal Indication

The "front end" of your Receiver might be defective. Since your other unit is working then what might be happening is the signal to your unit might be dropping, to check this I would use a Satellite power meter, however if you do not have one you can use your other unit and connect it to the cable that your supposed defective unit is connected to. If the unit works then the problem is the supposed defective unit, if the unit does not work then this denotes a possible cable problem. Tell me if this works for you?
