I had this same issue recently. Unplug the receiver, for approx 30 seconds and after you plug it back in, it should receive the signal and boot up when you turn it on.

I disconected my receiver when connecting back did not work never acquire signal


The satellite in cables play a big role in a receiver getting signal. Since they were disconnected, verify the cables are both hand tight and everything is plugged in.

If the satellite was working before, but isn't after disconnecting there may be a connection problem in the line. At that point verify all the cables are tight, and you can also try swapping the Sat In cables around. The Sat In cables have to be in the correct port to work. Let me know if the problem continues!

No signal on one tuner for dual tuner box.. neither tv works.


Hi benray there is something else youcan do on that to make sure your getting the strongest signal possible. Youwill need to press the MENU-6-1-1 buttons on the remote. Select Check Switchand Test, after the test is complete select done and then check the signal andif there is still a weak signal we will need to re-point the Dish.

When i turn on the tv it goes to a Dish Screen when i push select it doesnt do anything


I most likely need additional information to ensure this is in fact the correct resolution to your remote issue- but it sounds as though the remote may be in tv mode. If this is in fact the problem, then the remote simply needs to be put into "SAT" mode, which will enable you to be able to press select to proceed past the DISH Network screen. The "SAT" button is labeled & in the upper left hand corner of the remote just press SAT once and then release, the button should briefly light up red & then will go off, you can then press select and as long as the SAT button lights up when you press select or any other button on the remote then your all set to go! I hope this helps -please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with! -Kirstie DISH Network

Hi mikej10x! I will be more than glad to assist you in this concern. You mean, intermittent signal? If that is the concern mikej10x, lets isolate the problem, 1st check the sat in 1 and sat in2 if the cable is connected tight, as well as the separator, diplexers, all device that is connected to the line of sat in, then press the power button on the front panel of the receiver for 10secs, receiver will turn off and then turn on by itself, then attention 015 will pop up on the screen, then press the menu button right away once you see the attention 015, then main menu will show on the screen and once main menu is up, press 6,1,1 on the remote control and it will go to the point dish screen, select check switch on the upper right and it will go to installation summary screen, select test on the bottom of the screen and it will run a test up to 2 of 2 or depends on the sat you have, once its done it will show the installation summary, sat input 1 & 2, port1-119-ok, port2-110-ok, once you see that all sat is ok, select done and it will go to point dish, select done again and then cancel all the way out and it will pop up attention 015, let the progress finish until it download the programming guide. the picture will show. observe if problem still exist. if the problem still exist, call 1-800-333-3474 ask for tech support and once you talk to a live agent, ask for a service call, there is a problem on you sat dish system, it could be the lnbf, switch, or the separator or cable connection. or it needs to re aligned the dish.. but before you call, check first if there is no trees or leave blocking on the dish to the southern sky, no obstruction.. please feel free to get in touch if you have any query.

Hi! I am sorry to hear about the frustration that you experience from the tech support of dish network. If you already talk to this guys for 90 minutes do different troubleshooting steps, Did they ask you if your receiver is plug in to a power strip or surge protector? If your receiver is plug in to a surge protector or power strip, please unplug it from the surge protector or power strip for 1minute. then plug in directly to the power outlet. Sometime the power strip or surge protector dont give the 100% current needed by the dvr. just to isolate the problem, connect the dvr to the power outlet and plug in after 1 minute. if the receiver dont boot up it just turn on the green light and turn off by itself. there is a problem from the power supply of the dvr. just in case it turn on and it shows attention 015, press the menu button on the remote and it will show the main menu, press 6,1,1 on the remote and it will go to point dish,once its on point dish, selct check switch, then on the next page selct test, it will run the test up to 1 of 3 or 4 it depends on the condition of the sat dish, once its done, it will show the installation summary screen, it should show the 3 sat or 4 depends on how many you have, ex, 119, 110, 129, or 77, 72, 61.5, once all sat are all ok, selct done, then select done on the point dish and cancel all the way out of the menu and you will see attention 015, it should finish the progress and download the programming guide, and it should show a picture on the tv screen, just in case the problem still exist, call 1-800-333-3474 and ask for a supervisor and explain to the supervisor that you talk to the tech for 90 minutes and also tellthe sup that you did the troubleshooting step that i mention to you but the problem still exist.. the problem is with the dvr, pls feel free to get in touch if you have any query..

TV ''Dish'' not working on second TV


check sat in cable, if cracks or breaks in line can cause sfss. also on back of receiver you want to make sure that sat in cable has a little copper wire sticking straight up and that its getting a good connection on the back of the receiver.

Check the manual to see if there is an automatic code search feature for your Toshiba. It may be easier to program your directv remote to operate your toshiba. You may not get the full use from either remote, but its worth a shot

No Satelite Signal Indication


The "front end" of your Receiver might be defective. Since your other unit is working then what might be happening is the signal to your unit might be dropping, to check this I would use a Satellite power meter, however if you do not have one you can use your other unit and connect it to the cable that your supposed defective unit is connected to. If the unit works then the problem is the supposed defective unit, if the unit does not work then this denotes a possible cable problem. Tell me if this works for you?
