Hello, my name is Becki Barned, and I'm with Dish Network customer service. The issue that you have here is, the receiver si rebooting. This process can last up to four hours. If it goes on for more than four hours, then you have a power issue. It does help to unplug the receiver for 10 seconds. If your receiver is not connected straight to the wall, go ahead and try to connect it to a power outlet on the wall. If that doesn't work, and if your issue has not already been resolved, blog back and we can help further.

Hi Amanda. A number of things can be causing this. It is possible that you are on the wrong input or that your receiver is not functioning properly. If you are still experiencing this issue, please email us at socialmedia@dish.com with your phone or account number and your 4 digit PIN.

ViP211-HD DVR button won't work.....can't record any channels.....also the 'record' button doesn't respond either......


Hello, my name is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network. I'm sorry about any inconvenience, but the ViP211 is not a DVR receiver. If you have an external hard drive, you can activate the feature on the 211 to allow you to record movies to the external hard drive. It is a one time $40 to activate the external hard drive feature. Also, we can always look at getting a DVR receiver installed to replace the 211. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at matthew.gonzales@dishnetwork.com.

I am starting to get NO SIGNAL blue screens using vip211


Your vip211 may have been forcing a software update if the green light was blinking but you for sure have problems if it still has the same issue, just call dish and have them send you a new one. The vip 211 is a great recvr, you can hook up an external hard drive and have a DVR with no DVR fee, however there is a one time cost of 39.95 to activate your Hard drive but witht eh issues you have ben having they would more than likely waive this cost for you. i would for sure ask if you need to replace the receiver.

Vip211 will not power up, no green light or signal?


Hi johnmcmillan with thereceiver not powering up we can try a few things to get the power on. Firstthing you will want to do is make sure the receiver is plugged directly intothe wall. If the receiver is plugged into the wall and the green light is noton you can do a reset by unplugging the power cord from the receiver for 10seconds and plug it back in. I will leave a link to help with this. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/receiver-no-power

3.1 DishnetWork remote problem


I suspect that the remote address got changed somehow. Pree and hold the sat button on the top left hand side of the remote until all buttons light up across the top and release. Now key in 0-1 on the numeric keypad and press the pound sign. The SAT button will flash three times. After it the SAT button is done flashing press the small red dot record button. Now try to operate the remote. You should be able to control the system now. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
