Apex DT250 converter stuck in standby mode

My Apex DT250 converter will not switch from the standby to on mode. Using either the remote or the manual button on the front, the unit will emit a high pitch whine, but not switch to on.

I just had the same problem and replaced the popped capacitor and it works. I had to use a 470uf 35 because radio shack didnt have any 25's. It only cost $1.59 so i bought 3 just in case it happens again

    Hi how do I know which 470uF capacitor is popped on my apex dt250?

    And how do I change it?

  • daniellouie1 May 14, 2011

    I agree. Box failed just a little past coverage period.

    I opened the box and noticed the cap on circuit board at C8 position was bulging. The C8 cap was green and other three were black. Perhaps intended supply of flawed cap to just fail at the time of warranty expiration? One black cap at position C15 was bulging. Good that caps were bulging and had not burst. (Think of a carbonated can drink in the freezer after one hour - about to or already popped.) Have the four caps ready - not all may need replacing. Use good quality Phillips screwdriver & use firm steady force - 5 to 6 cover screws and two recessed screws hold the cover down. 4 circuit board screw. Be careful when removing AC power and mini-plugs - easy to overlook release clips. Use low watt soldering pencil, not high watt gun.

Open up the unit because the warranty is no longer valid i assume and check the capacitors on the power supply. i did this on mine and i found that one of the 470uF capacitors was popped you can probably fix it yourself for about 10 dollars. its cheaper than buying a new one and definitely cheaper than having it sent out to have it fixed.

The problem wasn't really Apex. There was a flood of cheap, bad capacitors at the right time and the DT250 boxes got stung. I had four boxes and all four eventually failed a 470u cap on the power board. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

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.
