DVR won't play

When I tried to play one of the shows I recorded on my dvr, the screen just went black, and when I try to fast forward or rewind it just stays in the same spot. It won't do either one. It says that 2 hrs. are recorded but it won't play. How can I fix this?

    hi I am having the same problem - have been recording shows but when played back the screen is blank and it does not rewind or pay forward. help

    I tried to watch recorded programming, but my screen is black. The counter reads 0:00, and I can't fast forward. When I exit to go back to live TV the screen remains black until I change the channel. I can't rewind live TV anymore, either. I'm going to try unplugging it for 30 seconds when I get home, but I'm afraid that the hard drive may be shot.

    My DVR does the exact same thing...anytime I try to play any recorded programs on my DVR, the screen turns black, won't fast forward, and when I exit, it stays black until I turn the channel. I also can't rewind live tv anymore either. I have the same DVR - the Motorola from Time Warner Cable.

    I started having the same problem this morning with a Motorola DCT3416 and read in a couple other forums that unplugging it for 30 seconds and then plugging it back in should solve the problem. I just tried it and it worked! Hopefully the same is true for all Motorola models. Good luck!

    I'm having the same issue with my DVR. Also, only my HD channels are working through the box (they all work if I don't use the box).
    I was having this problem for a few days, then it started working today, and then stopped working again tonight.

    I set all my recordings to "delete when space is needed"  and yet it fills up and i have to delete old programs 1 at a time.  Also, i tell it only to record new episodes, yet it records all repeats, even when the word "repeat" is in the program description.  Finally, i would say roughly half of my recording have no audio, or a solid length of programming with nothing bu white noise for audio....what's the deal?!

I hae a Motorola 6412 that had this problem. I turned it off, then unplugged it for 30 seconds. After turning it on I had to wait 1-2 minutes before I could acces the DVR, but it work now.

Woohoo!
I have been having the odd show get the "black screen" problem since we got our Motorola PVR and I assumed that I had done something wrong. Today all of our recordings wouldn't play so I came only for help.
So simple. I turned the power off for a few minutes and now everything works again. Almost looks like the system even got an update to it?
Thanks "Guest from Aug 19th"!

I have a satalite dish dvr #625 it wont record rewind fast forward or pause. And i cant watch recordings. I have tryed everything and nothing works.please help..


Sounds like a problem with your box. you need to either have dish come replace it or u dont have the right reciever that will allow you to do that. If it is the right reciever and its still not working the dish company should be able to help trouble shoot the problem or send someone out to fix it. sounds to me like a faulty box that needs trashed.

I have vip 622 when ipress mode it tell me this feather not supported


imadhamzi

When you get that message, the features are not supported, are you trying to pause, fast forward, rewind, or possibly record? Normally unplugging the receiver from your electrical outlet for about 10 seconds and plugging back in will take care of this problem. This will reboot the receiver and re-acquire satellite signal. If this does not resolve the issue, we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.

Dish 510 DVR that wont record properly or play paused TV show


Make sure that the software is correct. Should be P4.07
you can go into the DVR and replace the hard drive but I would suggest getting Dish Home Plan, Replace the receiver and then cancel the Home Plan. Talk to Dish Network and they will work with you.

Dvr not working. Won't record, pause rewind


Try unplugging the unit from the electrical outlet for about five minutes- much longer than required- and try it again. If this fails you will need a service technician to resolve the issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Black screen


80% or more of the issues with your DVR can be resolved by unplugging the box for 90 seconds and plugging it back in. There are some features that will be avilable immediately, and others that will take time to download. IE: all of the quide. I can't stress this enough - reboot your DVR occasionally - just like your computer its hard drive might need this.

I have also seen the hard drive inside this box appear bad when it was actually a problem with one recording. In my case it was a recording on the wrong channel, one that did not broadcast anything in my market. I was unable to access any of my recorded programs and when I tried to play the one in question, the screen went black. I deleted the program and all was well.

Program prompting to be deleted before it was finished


Sounds like your DVR is running out of space try to free up some space on the DVR.Also there is a little bit of space at the end of the show after it prompts you to delete the show not much though.If you have plenty of space on the DVR simply increase the time it records by 3 minutes.that should take care of your problem.
