Question about RCA DTC210 DirecTV DTV Receiver

RCA DTC210 Directv HD tuner flashes when plugged in

I replaced the above receiver about 5 months ago and did not use for that period of time. I am now going to use that receiver to place in a bedroom. The receiver was working fine when disconnected. Now when I plug in it begins flashing between power and HDTV making a clicking noise. I have not re-activated the card as I was just setting up the receiver on the TV and will call to activate. Is the flashing due to an inactive card? Want to make sure it is not the receiver before I activate as I do not want to buy another receiver. Thanks Scott

    I have the same receiver doing exactly the same thing (flashing panel lights and clicking relay) . How much tech skill is needed to replace the power supply IC? Do I need to unsolder and resolder a multi-pin chip? I checked Mouser.com and found part# 512-KA1M0565RTU. Is this the same part?--Thanks Doug

I had 2 units I bought used which were also non-functional, clicking sound (an internal antenna relay) and flashing front panel lights at 2 to 3 times per second, this indicates that the power supply is improperly cycling. After analysis of the switching power supply, I found that the main power device IC had been damaged and was not working properly. When a solid state device of this type fails, it is sudden and final. When replaced, the power supply worked correctly and the DTC210 functions. The part is a Fairchild KA1M0565R power switch integrated circuit which can be easily replaced by a skilled technician. You can look up a data sheet on the internet. While the component was not available at my local electronics parts store, I found it at Mouser Electronics for $3 at www.mouser.com

My DTC210 didn't want to work after being stored for awhile. Both lights were ON but there was no output.

I left it turned on and after about 2 hours it started working.

Remote codes for directv HD DVR and westinghouse tv


2. Locate the 5-digit code for your TV (see pages 13-16).
3. Move the slide switch to TV.
4. Press and hold in the MUTE and SELECT keys at the same
time until the green light under the TV icon flashes twice
and then release both keys.
5. Using the number keys enter the 5-digit code for your
brand of TV. If performed correctly the green light
under TV will flash twice.
6. Aim the remote at your TV and press the power key
once. The DIRECTV Receiver should turn off. If it does
not turn off, repeat steps 3 and 4, trying each code for
your brand until you find the correct code.

So you are telling me I need a digital converter for this TV to g


Who was not watching the months of public service announcements? You need a Digital-to-Analog (ATSC-to-NTSC) converter box to receive over-the-air (OTA) signals in most parts of the country. You do not need one for most cable and satellite box outputs--they are NTSC or HDMI. Some low-power, typically religious, stations are still analog. Note OTA may be high definition (HD) or standard resolution (SD) but will be digital.
To get HD on your HD set you must have OTA (HD TV tuner, not converter), cable (QAM TV receiver), satellite (HDMI or 5-wire RCA),or Blu-Ray with HDMI or RCA.

Is this TV HD capable?


This is not an HDTV. However, that does not mean you cannot use it to view the HD channels with DirecTV, you just wont be able to view them in hi-def. Use the component inputs from the directv tuner and plug those into the proper component inputs of your JVC. Once you see the DirecTV picture on the screen, go into menu... setup (with the directTV remote) and make sure that the only resolution checked is 480i. DirecTV with 'downconvert' those cannels to standard def, and they will still look pretty good though the component connection...

... now, in answer to your next question: "What exactly do I need to view HDTV with DirecTV?"...

1. A television that will accept 720p or 1080i signals.
2. A DirecTV HD Tuner.
3. Any DirecTV service BUT you must purchase the HD pack so that they will 'unlock' the HD channels
4. The proper cables to hook in between your DirecTV HD receiver and your HD-capable TV/Monitor. You may use either HDMI or component video cables, so long as your TV will accept them. Tune your TV input accordingly. When using component video cables, you must also run a separate cable(s) for audio...

Take care,
Rob

ps. DirecTV HD tuners do not have an RF 'out'. ("coaxial or ch3/4 connection")
