I have direct tv dvr my remote wont work,but remote works on my other recivers,has the ir gone bad and can it be fixed


Hi,

It's possible that the IR receiver in the DVR has failed. It's unlikely to be the remote as it works with other devices. If the remote was working with the DVR before, then in most cases the problem can be corrected by resetting the DVR as follows:

Press the RED RESET BUTTON behind the access card panel on the front of the DVR. Wait for the program guide information to update then try the remote again.

Try this and post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

DVR refuses to rewind or pause live TV or record


ruukasu2005,

If you are still experiencing problems with your 625 receiver performing live DVR functions, try unplugging the receiver for about 10 seconds and plugging back in. This will cause the receiver to reboot and acquire satellite signal. After the picture returns, then try to pause. If it still doesn't work, then we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.

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.

DN receiver wont stay on.


It's best to troubleshoot with a technician over the phone to actually try things, but it does sound like this receiver is no good. If that's the case and it's leased, you can contact Dish Network and get a replacement at no cost, just pay for the shipping (unless you have Dish Home Protection Plan - then it's free).

My box wont turn on theres just a red light


if you have tried it in another room and it still wont come on, some of the receivers have a detachable power cord on the back, check to make sure that is in tight. otherwise the box has gone bad and nothing you can do about it.

There seems to be no power when it is plugged in


If something else works in the outlet that reciever is plugged in to, the reciever is fried. Try to charge your phone or plug in a clock where the reciever is. Outlet might be connected to a light switch, for a lamp or something. If you have a light switch you don't what it does, this might be it. Hope it helps.

Hi guys, I bought new HD TV I have Dish receiver,# VIP211hd. Tv is not seeing HDMI signal. Tried three diff cables into all 4 ports on tv. DVD player works in any of them .Dish tells me output is port...


This is a really difficult problem to answer correctly on the first try but here we go. Some tvs will not recognize the introduction of a new component without unplugging the tv for about 30 seconds with the component connected and powering the tv back on. The issue I believe Dish was trying to convey was to make sure the port you plug the receiver into is turned on in the tv menu. Since the dvd works in any of them this seems to be the case. I f you have further difficulties you should contact the tv manufacturer for assistance as they are more familiar with teaching the tv to communicate with the receiver than Dish personell will be in most cases.

Panasonic model CT-36SL13G TV


Your problem is most likely the thermistor , or degausser, is going bad. It is a little black box with pins and says D1R5M on it. It can be found by following the wire from the degaussing coil around the picture tube. The location number is CF803( i think)the Panasonic partnumber is D4DF1R50001. Also, I believe your fuse is 6.3A not 3.6A.
