Ultra viewsat didital satellite receiever vs2000 box

I was updating it then it froze. i turned it off from the back cause it wont turn off with the remote and turned it back on. when i do that it usually turns back on, when it does that it shows the word on then 0000. that's when i am able to start over look for signal for satellite. it showed no signal and froze again. i tried to turn it off with the remote it wont so i had to turn it off from the back, i turned it back on then it got stuck on the word on. it wont turn back on or off with the remote. the batteries are new. every time i turn it off from the back and turn it back on it gets stuck on the word and shows no numbers. there is no picture or audio.

I Had a similar problem with an older Bell Expressview receiver(Canada). Tech support told me I had an old Smartcard which wouldn't allow it to synh with satelite. Instead of replacing the Smartcard, they exchanged the receiver.

I have a viewsat ultra. It will turn on.. but if I have the cable from sat in the back of the receiver,.. where it should be in sat in.. it wont turn on... but without my cable from the dish itself it will...

If you are using a switch between the viewsat and the LNB, remove it and connect the receiver again.
If that did not work, remove the cable from the LNB and power up again; if the receiver still unable to power up then you might have a short circuit in the cable itself or water might be entrapped inside the connectors on the LNB/switch connections.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
