Question about Apex Digital HT-150 System

Apex DT250 wont turn from standby (red light) to On (green light)

I have been using the Apex Digital DT250 for about a year without incident...although I left it on for most of that time. Lately I have taken to turning it off (with the remote) so that the green light turns red. This evening I discovered that it wont turn back on. Pressing the power button on the remote makes the red light on the dt250 blink once instead of turning green. Pressing the power button on the unit itself makes the red light flash quickly, at about 5 to 8 Hz.

I opened the unit up. But I don't see anything obvious. The connections all look good...

Has anyone discovered where a bad connection can be located or anything?

The DT250 has one or more bad 470uf 25v capacitors. You should replace all four. Look at some of these youtube videos for how do do the replacement.

I had the same problem and changing the 4 470uf capacitors didn't fix it. I changed C6 which is a 47uf 16v which ended up being the solution.

How do i program a vibe unversial remote for apex digital converter box


Use the code search feature to find something that can handle some or all functions of your Apex STB. If a search through all codes contained in the Vibe remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not contain all possible codes.

Use cbl/sat button. Your remote might use more or less than 4 digits. Use 749 or 00749. It'll probably work. It worked for me.
