622 rebooting problem

My 622 was rebooting within minutes of being turned on (so I know it wasn't hot) and I call Dish and I was told my unit needed to be replaced and so 2 hours after the tech left after replacing the reciever the 2nd one started doing it. The first unit wasn't even 1 month old and the second one started doing it on day one. Dish acted like this was the first time they had encountered this problem. How widespread is this issue?

This issue would have to be resolved in home, it is linked to a power issue and your voltage will need to be checked at the outlet your recvr is plugged into, HD DVR's need alot of constant power to operate poperly. the nes time you call about this issue the standard procedure is to send a tech to check voltage.

My receiver turns off and on by itself and becomes very hot


Hello, Daniel Busa with Dish Network customer service here. if your 622 is overheating you should get an errpr message stating its overheated. At that point you will need a replacement, if its turning off and on by itself sporadicly then that may be remote interference. Try this link to readdress the remote.

My VIP 622 do not comunicate with my LCD via HDMI when i power on i have a green blinking


Hello, this is Matt Gonzales with DISH Network. When just the green light on the front of the DISH receiver is blinking, the receiver is in recovery mode. Recovery mode can take up to 4 hours, but if it goes past that, try doing a hard reset on the receiver. To do a hard reset, you will unplug the receiver from the power outlet, leave it for 15 seconds, then plug it back in. After doing this, your receiver will go through a rebooting process which can take about 5 minutes. If you have the same problem with the green light blinking, the receiver will need to be replaced. If this is still an issue, please send me an email at matthew.gonzales@dishnetwork.com.

Hello, my name is Daniel Busa with Dish Network customer service. Whats probably causing the issue would be that either you're not getting high enough signal strength on the 61.5 satellite. Otherwise there could be an issue with the box if you swap it with another reciever in the home, and the issue follws it you'll need a new box.

Dish vip 622 and vip 722k frequent picture freeze and restart


Sounds like a signal strength issue. You may have either a low signal or something like a tree limb is blowing into the signal path dropping the signal strength to a point low enough to causes issues.

I lose my audio often for non-hd channels with dish 622 dvr


The problem could lie in youir HDMI cable, this is a common issue. if you swap HDMI cables and still have the same problem then bypass your A/v rec and connect your 622 direct to your tv and see if the problem persists, it it does, then your DVR needs to be replaced, you can call dish for addition troubleshooting if it is in fact your DVR.

Vip622 rebooting, fan always running on high / No Video


Hi! I am sorry to hear about the frustration that you experience from the tech support of dish network. If you already talk to this guys for 90 minutes do different troubleshooting steps, Did they ask you if your receiver is plug in to a power strip or surge protector? If your receiver is plug in to a surge protector or power strip, please unplug it from the surge protector or power strip for 1minute. then plug in directly to the power outlet. Sometime the power strip or surge protector dont give the 100% current needed by the dvr. just to isolate the problem, connect the dvr to the power outlet and plug in after 1 minute. if the receiver dont boot up it just turn on the green light and turn off by itself. there is a problem from the power supply of the dvr. just in case it turn on and it shows attention 015, press the menu button on the remote and it will show the main menu, press 6,1,1 on the remote and it will go to point dish,once its on point dish, selct check switch, then on the next page selct test, it will run the test up to 1 of 3 or 4 it depends on the condition of the sat dish, once its done, it will show the installation summary screen, it should show the 3 sat or 4 depends on how many you have, ex, 119, 110, 129, or 77, 72, 61.5, once all sat are all ok, selct done, then select done on the point dish and cancel all the way out of the menu and you will see attention 015, it should finish the progress and download the programming guide, and it should show a picture on the tv screen, just in case the problem still exist, call 1-800-333-3474 and ask for a supervisor and explain to the supervisor that you talk to the tech for 90 minutes and also tellthe sup that you did the troubleshooting step that i mention to you but the problem still exist.. the problem is with the dvr, pls feel free to get in touch if you have any query..

Dish VIP 622 constantly resetting


Hi,
I suspect that there is either a problem with the LNB or the cable. Make sure you have not accidentally got a strand of the braid touching the inner core.

Maybe try a short length of pre-made cable with the LNB off the dish.

Thanks
