HT-S580 Randomly Shuts-Off

My connections are as follows: Dish Network satellite into the receiver using composite cables. When I turn the system up to 40 it shuts off after a few minutes. None of the other connections have this issue. Please give guidance as I have NO clue. Thank you kindly. Shawn.

    We, too, have a DISH connection which is currently off due to a bad wind storm. However, for some reason, the "protect" mode is now on, preventing us from even watching a DVD. What's up?

Most systems like this have what is commonly called 'protect' mode. This usually kicks in when the volume is at a very high level, and the unit tries to use more power than its designed for, or it is overheating. The reason why only this connection has problems and others do not could be a few reasons. One, satellite signals usually carry high quality digital sound, and use more power to play sounds that may be inaudible. Two, You may also want to upgrade your composite cables to the highest possible quality. (There are many durable gold plated models that work well). Low quality cables could hasten your problem and produce signal bleed. In addition to this, the unit may cut power when it overheats. Make sure the vents on the unit are not obstructed, and that it is not near other components that are generating heat.

How do I reconnect my dish network receiver cables from satellite dish back up correctly all are outside cables?

Typically there will be a single line of Coax (TV Cable) running from your dish to your receiver. There will be a connection on the back of your receiver with a little picture of a dish. It might also be labeled LNBF or LNB. Make sure the power to your receiver is unplugged before connecting it. If you have more than one cable coming from the dish, or I've misunderstood, you may need to provide more information such as what cables, and what model of reciever.

How do I connect my LG TV to my dish network

Hello Al, my name is Cheri Torres and I work with DISH Network Internet Response Team. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could help. Connecting your LG TV to your DISH Network receiver should be fairly easy, depending on the connections you are using. If you are using an HDMI cable you will need to connect one side of it to your LG TV and the other end into your DISH receiver, as long as you have an HD receiver. If you do not have an HD receiver you are probably going to want to use composite cables(red, white and yellow). If you are using either of these cables you are going to have to set your TV to an input in order to receive the DISH picture. You can select an input by finding a button on the TV remote or the TV itself that is listed as input, source, AUX, mode or video. You will need to cycle through each one until you find the DISH picture on one of them. Once you have the picture you will need to press SAT on your DISH remote and everything should be working fine from there. I hope this information is useful and if you have further questions feel free to ask!

I have a 625 dual tuner from Dish. When I do a check switch it shows that I have signals on both satellites on tuner 1 but tuner 2 has none. When I disconnect the cables from the receiver and reconnect...

Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service, I will be happy to assist with this. This receiver needs to have a Separator (splitter) that has one coax cable coming from the Satellite into the single side and then two cables out, which connect to the receiver box. The Separator is marked with a SAT1 & SAT2. They will connect up to SAT1 & SAT2 on the receiver box itself. If you are using a different typr splitter, it is probably not rated for the splitting of the Satellite feed. I hope this helps you, if not feel free to contact me.

Unhooked all lines in back of tv cant remember to rehook up have2

granmabj,

There are common connections to each receiver but there are unique connections also depending on the receiver. Solo receivers have a coax cable coming from the Dish outside connected to Satellite In. Duo receivers and DVR HD receivers have the coax cable that comes from the dish outside that connects to Satellite 1 and Satellite 2 using a splitter. There is also a cable (coax, RCA (yellow, white, red) or component (green, blue, red - video, white, red - audio) or an HDMI if HD) connected from the receiver to the TV 1. For a duo receiver TV 2 may be backfed on the cable coming from the dish outside using diplexers. This may sound confusing but you can call 1-800-333-3474 for assistance.

this problem occurs when the ground on the Dish is not properly connected. What is happening is the cables from the dish are backfeeding voltage and grounding out your rec. Now there could be a possiblity that it could be the rec. however if it stays powered on with the sat in cables discon. then it defintley sounds like a grounding issue.

Have you tried channel 3 or the video input channels.
The Tv only needs the one channel that the signal from the box is sent on.

No Sound In Home Theater with Dish HDTV DVR Dual Mode Remote Connection

HDTV is not carried via coaxial cable from tuner, you need HDMI or the 5 RCA cables that are different colors. I forget if they are called component or composite, I think they are called composite, the R and W are sound. If you run the HDMI or composite cables to your TV, there should be a variable out or audio out on the back of the TV that outputs ANY sound coming into the TV, like Wii, DVD, tv, etc. So if you want to listen to tv sound, just pipe the audio out to the receivers available input and turn it up. Cant be used with mag input (turntable) all others are compatible. Did this answer your question? Sat cables are usually kept under 130 ft from the dish, and the dish receiver can output coaxial signal over 400ft on RG-6 cable. HDMI is limited and can get very expensive. Does your sat box have a coaxial digital out (orange RCA) you can use that if your receiver can read it, usually associated with the DVD input or video input, but only for digital encoded programs.
