Question about Philips DIRECTV R15

Open Question

My directv model r15 receiver won't turn on. I tried unplugging it and then plugging it back in, but that elicited no response. Then I tried pulling out the card on the front for a few seconds, but that was also unhelpful. Finally, I hit the reset button and waited fifteen minutes to no avail. Also, I've noticed that it's humming, but none of the lights on the front will come on no matter what. Please help! It has suffered no abuse; we hardly ever touch the thing. It's maybe two and a half - three years old.

II just want to ask a question about a TIVO DVR.


You can buy a used DirecTV with Tivo. You probably had a Hughes SD-DVR40 or SD-DVR80 before. The used model needs to be transferable to your account (which means it can't be leased, it has to have no outstanding charges on the previous account, etc). And you have to buy a new DirecTV card.

If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area or in San Jose, write to tivorepair@gmail.com and they should be able to help you out.

DirecTV receiver R15 won't respond to remote RC23


Well, I took the DVR apart and found the power board completely intact, no bulging capacitors. However, the Mother Board had a 220uf/50volt cap that was bulging, so I replaced it. By the way, 'DigiKey' is the only place to go for electronic parts. They'll hook you up! The DVR still wouldn't respond to the remote. Darn it!
So I took both of my DVR's apart and swapped out the Front Board (the one with the Photoamplifier in it) and the DVR would now respond to the remote. OK, so now what do I do. I still have one DVR with a bad Front Board. I started to look on ebay for an old used R15 500 that I could swap parts from...remember, I own my eqipment and the goal is to preserve what I have recorded on the Hard Drive. R15's were going for around $50 -$80. Then I got to thinking. I still had an old non-DVR Direct TV Receiver in my closet I never planned to use again. My thought was: even though it wasen't the exact model receiver, it did use the same remote, so the frquency that the Photoamplifier worked at should be compatible.
So I took apart this receiver unsoldered the Photoaplifier. I then removed the Photoamplifier from my malfunctioning DVR and installed the part from my unused Receiver and it fixed it. So long story short(too late for that) the Photoamplifier was faulty. I tried doing some cross checking and a company in China called Raytron makes the part. The failed part did not have a part # and Raytron has several different Photoamplifiers that operate at different frequencies. This made it impossible to find the right part without schematics or knowing what the freqency is. So at least we now know what caused the non responce to the remote.

My Directv DVR receiver will not stay on it is blinking yellow??


Unplug it from the power for about 30 minutes and then try again. If it still doesn't work I would call DirecTV and discuss getting it replaced.

Directv DVR Plus R15 Receiver won't power on


sounds like the receiver has gone bad. if you have tried it in numerous rooms/outlets and its not the electrical cord (its plugged in tightly at the back if its detachable) sounds like the receiver needs replaced. if you have the protection plan it MAY be covered under this and MAY be replaced for free. contact directv at 800-531-5000

The amount of steps you need to have the GE smartcom systems IR's to work on a Directv R15 box is NOT worth your time and money.
