Receiver is plugged directly to wall and have tried more than one outlet and circuit. All outlets work for other devices. When plugged in, green light comes on then starts flickering or flashing and then eventually goes off altogether.

Re: Power will not stay on to VIP 211 receiver
Hi! This is Matt Gonzales with DISH Network. When a receiver will not stay powered on properly, and you have tried unplugging it and also plugging it into a different outlet, the reciever will need to be replaced. When a receiver is on properly the green light should stay steady
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hi there! My name is Kimberly and I form part of the Social Media Department with DISH. It is my pleasure to assist you. Please reset the receiver by unplugging it from the wall for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds please plug the receiver back in, allow it to power back on by itself, it will acquire signal and download the guide. If issue persists and you currently have the receiver's power cord connected to a surge protector, please by pass the surge protector and connect the cord directly to a wall outlet. If issue persists after performing this steps please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance. You can also contact us directly at: 1800-333-3474.

Amber, if you are still having this issue, please let me know! You can try to connect your receiver directly to a wall outlet or a different outlet. Please email me at email@example.com. Thank you!
I do hope this has been resolved by now, but if not I would be happy to provide assistance. The receiver may need to be replaced if it's not powering on. To help verify where the problem is, make sure the receiver is plugged directly into the wall outlet. If it already is, then if possible try another outlet.
If the problem continues we can look into a replacement. You can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can help you further!
It sounds like the receiver may be power cycling. Try bypassing any power strips or surge protectors and plug directly into a wall and try again. If the problem continues, if possible try another outlet.
Send me an email at email@example.com if the problem continues since the receiver may need to be replaced.
Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. It sounds like your receiver may be experiencing a power failure. If you already have not you may want to try performing a hard reset by unplugging the receiver from the wall outlet for ten seconds. If your receiver is plugged into a surge protector try unplugging it from the surge protector and plugging it directly into your wall outlet. If none of these troubleshooting steps seem to work you will more then likely need a replacement receiver. I would be happy to look into this further for you if you would like to email me directly at Cheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com with your account info such as account number or name and phone number on the account.
Not intended to offend; 1. If using A/C (house electrical power), please check if electrical wall outlet is active. Attempt to plug-in another electrical device such as a lamp, clock, radio, etc.. If the electrical wall outlet has top and bottom plugs, try the top and then the bottom plug to see which one works. Sometimes, the top outlet will not work, yet the bottom outlet does work. The wall outlet should be replaced by qualified technician. 2. If both outlets do NOT work, and the outlet is GFCI breaker protected, maybe pressing the RESET switch on the outlet will power-up the outlet. 3. If the outlet is NOT GFCI breaker protected, check your electrical fuse box for a tripped fuse. Sometimes, a tripped fuse is NOT visible. May have to trip the specific fuse or all fuses to off, then back on. Recheck the wall outlet. 4. Once your know the outlet is live, check the power cord (a/c adapter for laptops) to make sure they are securely plugged-in to both the wall outlet AND the PC or Laptop.
Will need more information once the above steps are taken:
Is it a Desktop or Laptop? Make and Model (if known)? Any lights (glowing) on the desktop or laptop? Any lights on the A/C adapter if its a laptop?
My name is Becki, and I'm with Dish Network Customer Service. This issue sounds like a power issue. If you have the receiver plugged into a surge protector, try plugging it straight into the wall. If already in the wall, try unplugging it for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, the receiver needs to be replaced. If this issue has not already been resolved, blog back!
Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.
