Help -Motorola DSR922 Clicking After Power Goes On And Off

My house electricity went on and off for a second, and now my Motorola DSR922 will only make a constant clicking sound when I turn it I always have it connected to a top of the line Panamax surge protector, so I'm not sure what is going on. And sending this thing in to Moto is a true might as well buy a new one. Does anyone know what this could be? And if my Panamax surge protector can't protect it, what can? This is my second unit in 5 years time and sadly Moto has the market cornered on this. Thanks for any help!

    My pet went to the bath room on my DSR922. The receiver was already on and the readout said 888. Also saw a spark around the plug area, took off top and cleaned what I could. I need to find someone to look at it. Whom can I send this unit to rt that will repair it. NEED HELP...

I had same problem - found clicking stopped when I disconnected the Ku LNB - probably shorted. But, I have other problems in that both receiver and unit i.d. numbers have changed. So far, the only option seems to be to send it back to ATS (828 465 9968) for repair. I also had unit on UPS power.

How do I decipher the SN on a Motorola DSR922 receiver.

The DSR922 was made from 2001-2007. No more being made from motorola ;-(
The seventh digit from the left is the date code.
So a 4 in that place means manufacture date of 2004.

Motorola dsr922 lockup on startup

ATS electronics can repair the board that died. running out of boards is not a problem. the dsr-920 receiver is junk if the battery dies..the chip that stores the unit ID number is no longer manufactured....

Power outages cause receiver to lose unit ID numbers.

When the backup battery goes dead you loose the ID number.
If you have lost your receiver ID number you will need a new main board.
Check the receiver number in the status screen. If it matches the UA number on the back sticker you are ok, if not the only solution is replacing the main board. still had some boards when I last checked. But when they run out were all screwed.
Motorola didn't make any provisions for renewing the ID number.
That really sucks motorola ;-(

Motorola #DSR922 question

call your provider and ask to talk to an installer. most likely they'll be able to tell you on the phone. if not, get them to send someone out to fix your problem. it should be a free service call since you are paying rent on the unit anyway.

Will not set limits (changed arm)east & west or same spot how to breck free

I assume this is a larger Satellite Dish with a motorized arm to move it from sat to sat.

There's 3 things that can cause this:
1. Limit switches in the back of the motor are not aligned properly.

2. No power to the motor on the 2 larger power wires. Bad wiring, bad box in house, blown fuse.

3. Magnetic pulse switch in arm not sending pulses to box. Bad sensor, or bad wiring. In this case the motor would move a bit then stop.

Hope that helps
