    My Sansui dvr-1038 is totally dead. Sounds like the power just shorts out. LED does not even come on.

    Hi bigjon001 I think the problem is at the power supply on your dvr.

    I had same problem and rerpaired it.

    Ok open the box.

    Look on the psu for any popup electrolytic capasitors.

    I had electrolytic cap CE10 poped on my dvr-1038.

    Replace with same value.

    10uF10v 105%.

    Goodluck

Thanks zs1ba

If I open the unit and check the psu, how do I know which capacitor to look for? Where on the psu is it? Sorry for sounding dumb, but I know code, not hardware...

For the past two days, the DVR is unresponsive for about 2-3 hours in the morning. The unit seems to cycle on and off by itself every 30-40 seconds or so and I hear the fan running each time. I am not...


Hello, this is Luke, let me help you on your concern. A DVR which reboots by itself always means a power failure. Try to isolate the issue first by plugging in the DVR to a good power outlet. I suggest to plug it directly to a working wall outlet to make sure that it is not a power surge suppressor or a power strip device problem. Give the DVR at least 5 minutes to boot up. Allow it to do its own thing, and it should come on by itself. You will hear a spinning sound coming off it, which is normal. Within 5 minutes you should see a message on your tv screen. A good indicator that the receiver is on, are lights on it. Orange for mode, Green for TV1 And blue for TV2. You should have at least the orange light on, when the DVR on. Do a reset if it will not power on after 5 minutes, unplug the DISH receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in. Please have TV1 on during the whole process. Let me know if this help. Have a great day.

Skipping, feezing on recorded programs. third dvr. all same


I am very sorry to hear you have continually experienced problems with your VIP 612 DVR receiver, a important question when considering what may be causing issues with the numerous receiver you have had is, are you fully powering off the receiver each & every night? If not I would recommend doing so, by powering off the receiver each night it allows the receiver to receive necessary updates and helps to prevent these types of DVR issues. Perhaps you may want to try this and seeing if it resolves the problem. Additionally, another recommendation I would like to make to hopefully help prevent further frustrations with the DISH Network DVR receiver, would be to delete older recordings you have already watched or may not need anymore, this can also help when trying to prevent & fix DVR problems.
I hope these tips resolve the issue or help to improve the DVR functioning. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Dead unit


I'm sorry to hear about your DISH Network DVR-625 receiver. If you don't mind me asking & to allow me to further assist you, what exactly do you mean by "dead unit"," For example, was it working and has suddenly stopped working? Does it power on, can you see any lights on the front of your receiver? Is it plugged directly into a electrical outlet on the wall, or is it plugged into a power strip/surge protector? If plugged into a power strip/surge protector, please attempt to bypass by plugging the receiver directly into an electrical outlet- if plugged into an electrical outlet please try a different outlet. I hope these few tips may help but if not and you need further assistance please feel free to contact me @ Kirstie.Filosa@Dishnetwork.com :)

Vip622 rebooting, fan always running on high / No Video


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..

How do I know if my Directv HR22-100 HD receiver is dead?


one last thing you can do, if it doesnt work the dvr is dead. reset the dvr and wait for the hello screen and then the screen will go black. when it turns black, hold the down arrow (on the front of the dvr) and the record button for at least 5 secs. this will re-format the hard drive. if it doesnt work the dvr is dead

DVR 510 WON'T WORK ANYMORE


Did you have a power outage last night or lightning strike? If not unplug the receiver for approxiamately 30 seconds and plug it back in to the wall plate. Try to turn it on now. If it fails to power up it may indicate that the receptacle is bad or the receiver. Swap the plug from the receiver to the known good outlet the tv plugs into and try to power it up. If it fails the receiver is dead and you will need a new one. 510 are due to be discontinued with Dish so your local provider may not have one to replace yours with and you may be left with the option of upgrading the receiver, seeing if Customer Service can send you one out if you have a warranty program or buying one from a retailer or online.
Hope this helps you.
