The 625s have always tended to run warm. Couple that with an installation where the receiver is sitting in a cubby hole, and it may have issues. Entertainment centers that are enclosed (solid back w/ maybe holes for wires, glass doors) can cause problems as well.

The 625 already has issues with the hard drive, though a firmware should have taken care of it. Check your Menu - Preference - Inactivity Timer and try setting it to turn the receiver off and give it a chance to cool during the wee hours of the morning. I can't remember if the 625 has this option though.

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!

When the receiver powers up just the fan seems to go on. Resetting by holding the i/o will turn the yellow light off but doesn't turn the fan off and comes back on after you release the i/o...


Hello Joe, my name is Becki, with DISH Network. You will want to make sure that the receiver is in a well ventilated area, and that there is nothing heavy sitting directly on it. The receiver's fan can start running constatntly if the unit starts to overheat. You may also want to try putting the receiver out on the floor for a few hours to cool down. You can also try to unplug the receiver from the power source for 10 seconds, that can be a more thourough reset than holding the power button down. The fan will run while starting the receiver up, for about 5 minutes, then it should stop running loudly. If you continue to have problems, please let me know!

Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. Since the DVR is the only thing having the freezing issue, it sounds like it maybe a hard drive issue. I would recommend resetting the receiver. Unplug it from the power supply for 10 seconds and then let the receiver reboot itself. If you are still having this issue, I would recommend calling Dish Network and we will need to replace the receiver. Hard Drive issues do not resolve themselves and only get worse over time. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Fan on Dish Network's VIP722k DVR is continually running.


Hello, this is Nick Franta with DISH Network Customer Support.

It is normal for the fan on the 722k receiver to run often to cool down the system. If the receiver is in an enclosed space that could cause the receiver to overheat which would make the fan run continuously.

If you have any further questions let us know.
