Today I get home and my dish dvr has a loud fan sound like a computer fan that wont stop running it doesnt matter if the dvr is on or off


Hello this is Nick Franta with DISH Network.

The DVR fan does typically runs most of the time the receiver is on (or recently turned off). Since the DVR controls the option of stopping live programming and skipping back it is always in use so the fan will continually run. If the sound continues non-stop for the next 48-72 hours we may want to send a replacement receiver for you. You can contact me at nick.franta@dishnetwork.com if it does continue to be troublesome.

Fan and hard-drive run all night and make lots of noise, keeping me up. I am not recording anything at these times, and it is not doing it's normal updates, it just runs and runs, like it has share-ware...


it seriously sounds like a bad ball baring in the psu, possibly needs maintenance or replacement if it;ls a whining sound like metal on metal then its ball bearings but also can make several other sounds, like clicking and even tapping, while uncommon for fan bearings and hard drive to go bad at sometime it's possable. but the prob seems to be fan related

My DVR makes noise and does not run anymore. No image ;( Model supplied by Directv


If this receiver is leased, call DirecTV with your phone number or account number and your reeiver will be replaced free of charge (after they troubleshoot). You may incur a shipping charge.

Dvr won't turn on but fan is running


If you unplug the dvr and open it up, unscrew the screws and just open the casing. Can you see any battery inside it? It would look similar to a watch battery most likely. My security dvr will do that and I have to replace the internal battery, not sure if tivo like dvrs are the same though.

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
