Question about DISH Network DVR-625 DTV Receiver / 100-Hours Video Recorder

DISH dvr 625

Whenever it rains hard, Dish DVR 625 goes out. Even very lite drizzle does the same. It is a **** and a piece of junk. I wnet thru Menu/6/1/1 and no signal strength for International Channels like 610, 652 etc. Itried to reboot it. It works sometimes. No reliability at all. It is a constant nuisance.
Our cables are Ok and no problems with them. Is there a panacea?

Yes, this definitely sounds like an alignment issue or an all out line of site issue.

Have a tech come out and check it for you he should be able to resove it by repeaking the dish(es), moving the dish(es), or possibly using another orbital to get your internationals to come in.

If foilage is the cause of the problem and moving the dish will not resolve the issue the foilage must be removed.

Its most likely the secondary dish that is used for international programming. Your signal is probably low on that to begin with and during inclement weather goes out completely. A tech will go out at a cost to you and get that repaired.

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.

Can't get my 21 1 ir/uhf pro remote to work with dish network dvr 625


If you are attempting to program it to tv-2 on a 625 receiver it has to be set to a odd number for example number 7 instead of 2 or 6.
The reason for this is that the 625 receiver only supports band A frequencies for UHF and on a 21.x remote odd numbers are A band and even numbers are B band.

How do you hit the menu 6-1-2-


joy raley,

Press 'Menu' on the upper left corner of the remote, It's a small button with a few bars in it, then press those numbers on the number pad. You can also navigate to the options in the menu themselves.

Let me know if you need additional assistance!

On screen caller id failure


common problem on 625 receiver. Have you hit menu 6-1-2 to enable caller id? If so call Dish and have them send you a new receiver out and give it a try. I'm sure it won't work every time, but it has to be better than what you have.

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
