If you're electronics savy, as in replacing capacitors, open it up.. that's your problem.. one or two of the caps on the power board has gone bad.. most likely a 470uf 25v, which can be replaced with a 470uf 35v found at Radio shack for about $1.29. You can tell if it's bad if the top is cracked open & leaking or just domed out instead of being flat.

    Thank you so much, Szieve! I have two Apex DTCs, both of which had stopped working a couple of months ago. After reading your post, I popped the top of one of them, took a close look, and lo and behold one of the capacitors had a beautifully domed top (versus flat like the rest). I open up the other Apex DTC, and sure enough, yet another blown capacitor. A quick trip to Radio Shack...salesman points me in the right direction...grab a couple 470uf 35v capacitors ($1.49 each)...dig out my old rusty soldering kit...and before I know it, two previously bricked DTCs are as good as new, maybe even better! The hardest part in the whole process was finding my old soldering kit! Thanks, not only for the solution to my problem, but for a new-found confidence! Can't wait for my next project!!

Converter box will not stay on - starts green light then switches to red


I have one of those right here attached to my computer so I can watch TV on the PC. The red-green light is the power indicator. Your converter is turning off for some reason. Possibly it is getting a signal from another remote, and turning off. You can block the converter's remote sensor with something (black tape works) and then change the channels with front panel buttons if it has them.
Mine has power buttons for both the TV and the converter, so watch out for that.

My converter box will not turn on. The light stays red. i plug it in and it lights red but it wont turn on it stays off and i use remote and i manually push the power button but it wont turn on!!


TRY
Unplug receiver.
Leave for 10mins.
Plug in again.
Wait another 10 mins.
Press the hand control stand by button.
In a few minutes the light should turn green and start options should appear.
Good luck. This works when my HD box freezes.

I have the same issue. Here's a temporary solution, which is what I've been doing for the last couple of weeks, unplug the unit from the wall, just long enough for the red standby light to go out, then plug the unit back up. as soon that the red standby light comes on, press the on button the the remote or the unit. You may have to do this couple of time before it works. Somedays it works on the first try for me and then somedays I have to do it 3 to 4 time. I sure that at some point this will stop working too.
