Directv R15 DVR Boot-up problem

I restarted my receiver, and it started restarting. Then, it said that it was checking disk. It did this for about 15-20 min. Then, it said it was starting up, but came up with a message stating that a problem had occurred, please unplug for 1 min. I did this 3 times, to no success. I called Directv, but they just wanted to lease me another one. My current receiver is payed for, not rented, so it makes no sense to lease another one, especially when you're 14. Can someone please help me? Thanks.

    We experienced the exact same problem 5 days ago and it is still not
    working. directv wanted to lease us one with out attempting to
    troubleshoot it. Extremely dissatisfied with Directv's service in this
    instance.

    The service rep I talked to gave me the same solution. they can send me a new one... blah blah blah.... fees, fees ,fees. Directv, terrible customer service, and ridiculous fees. leasing one is the same as owning one. Directv charges you the same monthly fee if you lease, or own your receiver. either way this seems to be equal to the blue screen of death that Microsoft offers

SOURCE: My Directv DVR receiver will not stay on it is blinking yellow??

Unplug it from the power for about 30 minutes and then try again. If it still doesn't work I would call DirecTV and discuss getting it replaced.

SOURCE: Directv DVR plus (R15 receiver) Receiver won't startup

I would call directv back and insist on having the receiver replaced. If it worked before and doesn't now, something broke.

Why does my R15-100 DVR Plus not record 2 programs at same time. What can I do to fix it?


When we had the R15 (we have since upgraded) we could record two channels at once with no trouble. You have to have two satellite connections in the back (since it uses a separate tuner for each channel) and you cannot watch a third channel while recording two others - if you're going to watch, you have to watch one of the two shows you're recording.

II just want to ask a question about a TIVO DVR.


You can buy a used DirecTV with Tivo. You probably had a Hughes SD-DVR40 or SD-DVR80 before. The used model needs to be transferable to your account (which means it can't be leased, it has to have no outstanding charges on the previous account, etc). And you have to buy a new DirecTV card.

If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area or in San Jose, write to tivorepair@gmail.com and they should be able to help you out.

R15 DVR locked in record


2 months ago my R15-500 stopped working. The "Record"(yellow) light was dim on the front of the DVR and a lightly audible clicking noise could be heard from inside the DVR. So I searched the internet and found this FIXYA site. I disassembled the DVR as instructed and removed the power board. Sure enough the Capacitors were bulging on top. I replaced all of the capacitors on the power supply output, I think 6 altogether. I reassembled the unit and it worked great.

DVR keeps restarting / rebooting


Jay .. if you still have the receiver. heres what you do. reset the receiver and when the blue screen comes up saying "Hello your directv receiver is starting up" On your remote type in 0 2 4 6 8 .. then it should go to a screen saying "new software found" . Let it download the update.. That should fix the issue .. However if it doesn't then it could be the hard drive. The pcb board on them usually fries.. but that can be ordered too... let me know how this works... you can email me at pimp_on@yahoo.com

Directv DVR Plus R15 Receiver won't power on


sounds like the receiver has gone bad. if you have tried it in numerous rooms/outlets and its not the electrical cord (its plugged in tightly at the back if its detachable) sounds like the receiver needs replaced. if you have the protection plan it MAY be covered under this and MAY be replaced for free. contact directv at 800-531-5000
