Vip211k receiver will not power on but is humming


I would be more than happy to help with this. There isn't a place to purchase individual parts for our receivers. The humming may be from the fan still receiving power, but if the receiver itself won't turn on we would have to send out a replacement.

Make sure the receiver is plugged directly into the wall, and not into a power strip or surge protector. If the problem continues, can you send me an email at with the account or phone # so I can look into a possible replacement?

Vip211k skiping some recordings

Hey silva_juanc,

There can be a few reasons for recordings/timers to skip. To verify the exact cause enter the Daily Schedule and from there select the timer that didn't go off. It should give you a status with more information on what happened.

If you have any other questions you can post them here, or email me directly at

My vip211k receiver will not stay comes opn momentarily then shuts off.Please advise

Bypass that surgeprotector, if one, try another outlet, if that does not work, call Dishnetwork to have it replaced. If under warrantee, you are covered if not, add the service plan, $6 a month and you are covered, free!

My Dish Network Remote will not allow me to...

go to page 19 of your manual (for the E-Z remote) or here ""
(if you don't have the manual)

or to here "" if you have a different remote.

basically, turn your TV on, then you press the antenna button for about 5 seconds until the TV button lights, then use the channel up/down buttons to find the code (the TV will turn off when you find it) hit the TV button again to turn it back on, then hit mute to set the code! good luck!
