H20 Reciver power up problems

I bought a used H20 Directv reciever. I plug it in and after a few minutes the resolution lights start scrolling. I understand this is part of the usual startup but the lights never stop scrolling. I can't get a light on the power button and the unit will not turn on. Anyone have an idea?

    identical problem. it shows "Receiver is booting" then "Just a few more seconds", then resolution light cycles.

    same problem -- no solution in sight!

    Direct TV customer support told me to get a new HDMI cable but it didn't work.

    I'm having the same problem. Was working fine until a couple weeks ago and then started being flakey and then around the 24'th of August it only has the resolution lights rolling through. Nothing to the screen. Did Directv send some type of update that killed these?

Same problem on two different h20 receivers - called directv and explained the situation each time. since these are leased receivers, new ones on the way.

Guitar hero world tour, Ps3, when the wireless reciever is plugged in the guitar shows two lights on the strum bar...the ps button works and the controller allows me to quit the game/shut down system etc...


It seems that the recent PS3 Firmware update (2.80) reassigns your controllers. In order to fix this (I just did it 20 minutes ago and all is fine) is:
Go to the XMB "Settings" Menu.
Open "Accessory Settings"
Using the controller you want to reassign, open "Reassign Controllers"
Scroll to the number you want that controller to be (1,2,3 or 4)
You are good to go!

Thanks to the Phone Help at Activision for this fix!

Direct Tv Receiver No sound Black Screen


unplug the power from the reciever for a few moments. plug it back in and let it load. once its finished turn to channel 201. Usually it the reciever is on an unavailable channel (channel with no programming) when it restarted it will go back to that unavailable channel hince the black screen and no sound.

HDMI interface issues


If you swapped directv receivers and the problem followed to a different tv then there is something wrong with the directv receiver. Need to run satellite setup again on this receiver to fix. repeat satellite setup is accessible through the setup submenu by pressing menu from the directv remote. look under satellite submenu once in setup

Sound problems


Make sure it is not a problem with the DTV reciever first by connecting up another smaller TV set to that reciver. if it is the TV set for sure, a cheap fix would be to run the audio outputs of the DTV reciever to a small stereo or a powered speaker. Good Luck
