There was a software update early this morning which caused your recvr to go to recovery mode until it downloads the new software which takes about 4 hours. Once this is done you should be just fine!

Why does my Dish Network DVR-625 DTV receiver sound like it is running all the time


The Dish 625 as with the other Dish DVR systems has a fan built into the back of the unit. The fan runs nearly all the time to keep the internal drive cool. Sometimes the fan sounds louder that normal. what I do from time to time is take my shop vac and or the small vac u you use to clean your computer. and clean the vents around the fan. I do this on my desk top computer also.. Hope this helps.

My DISH Network DVR-625 DTV Receiver randomly freezes and resets itself and will only record 6-9 minutes of a program even though i have 50+ hours of available space. i've reset it several times. help?


ambrekulas,

I am sorry you are having problem with your picture freezing. You said you reset the receiver several times. Did you press the power on the receiver and release or did you unplug the receiver from the electrical outlet? Try unplugging it for about 10 seconds if you haven't already done so. If the problem persists, we'll need to replace the receiver. If you have any other questions, please post to this site.

My Dish DVR 625 does the "program guide download"


Hello! Dan Busa with Dish Networks customer service department. This sounds like it may be a signal issue, I would make sure the cabling is tight and in good condition. You also want to enable your inactivity standby having it disabled will only make this worse. If everything seems ok you may need a technician.

Why does my dish network overheat , the receievers themselves


The 625s have always tended to run warm. Couple that with an installation where the receiver is sitting in a cubby hole, and it may have issues. Entertainment centers that are enclosed (solid back w/ maybe holes for wires, glass doors) can cause problems as well.

The 625 already has issues with the hard drive, though a firmware should have taken care of it. Check your Menu - Preference - Inactivity Timer and try setting it to turn the receiver off and give it a chance to cool during the wee hours of the morning. I can't remember if the 625 has this option though.

How do I get closed captioning on my 625 dish dvr.


Guest,

The 625 receiver does not have a setting to control closed caption. This is a setting from your TV itself. I would look at your TV manual to see how you can turn the feature on. I hope this helps.

Dish 625 shuts off without warning and fan runs high


Unfotunately this is an event known as power cycling and the only resolution is another receiver. This issue is due to faulty internal components and has nothing to do with anything other than that fact. If you have further questions feel free to contact me. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Lines on TV with DVR-625


try using a better cable from the receiver to the tv. sometimes less expensive cables dont "ground " as well as they should after a few years. the more shielding the better. the cable here will sell you the cable much cheaper then going to any store and its better quality, even if your not a customer of cable.
hope this helps

My DVR-625, wont even turn on.


at the time the hard drive problem came up the receiver would of went into recovery mode this can take a good hour for it to fix and can do nothing until it would finish on its own and take care of. Doing the power reset is just like unpluging the receiver. Try unpluging again for 30 minutes and plug back in again and just wait receiver should come back on its own. Don't hit any buttons. If not will have to send out to dish for repair. 800-333-3474 dish
