Question about DISH Network 301 DTV Receiver
My Dish 301 receiver won't stay powered up. When I turn the unit on, it stays on for a few seconds then automatically turns itself off. When I pull the smart card out and re-insert the card, it does the same thing. Can anyone assist me with the problem?
You might have a grounding issue or electrical power. dish receivers need a specific amount of volts, what you can do is take an extension cord n connect it to the rcvr and take the other end of the extension cord n plug it in on another outlet in another ROOM, then see if it powers on , if it does something is wrong w/ the outlet even if u have A tv or other appliace plugged in, if it doesnt turn on then call dish network n get replacement receiver

The Dish 301 is about as basic as it gets, it's one step above hand shadows for entertainment. Might try power up with card inserted if that doesn't help send it back PS was designed by a handicapped chimp I hope chimps aren't insulted.
