There is an installation problem, and you need a technician. When the receiver reboots, it sends a boost of power to the LNBF until it gets a signal in return, or gets a response of no signal. If you have damaged lines, a damaged receiver, damaged LNBF, or low signal reception on your antenna, a rebooted receiver will, for a very short time, boost the signal enough to get reception. Then, the receiver will drop the power back to the correct levels, thereby eliminating the short term reception boost. A technician can repair your installation to improve the reception, as long as there is Line Of Sight to the correct satellites.

The first thing I would do is turn the receiver off. Dish Network receivers download new software when the receiver is off. Wait for about an hour or so, or even keep if off all night. If this doesn't do it, try unplugging the receiver for about 15 sec. or so and then plug it back in and try it again. Most likely, the rcvr has a bad hard drive and the data is corrupt so I would call Dish Network and have them send you a new receiver.

I have no signal,what can I check?


OK Joan,, I might need more info. not getting signal could be caused from several things.. one make sure the Dish Antenna is mounted correctly, (level, and true, [one degree off on earth is like 700 miles off at the Satellite.]) check you cables and make sure they is now wire touching the center core of the coax. if the coax has splitters, connections etc outside check for the corrosion inside the threads.
make sure the coax coming into the house is connected to the right place on back of the 222k. make sure u are on the right Video stream for the HDMI. are u getting any picture showing the Dish set up or is the screen all Blue.. if it is blue try to use the remote that came with ur TV (RCA, Vizio, Phillips,,,,etc) and look for the input, source , or Antenna button and push it to match your HDMI input..

DISH VIP612 Remote Code Scan


DISH Solo DVR VIP612 Remote Code Scan

7c06801.jpg


Would you like to autoscan program the Universal Remote that came with your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 to control your TV, VCR, receiver, or stereo?


e818a57.jpg

To auto-program device codes into your Dish Solo DVR VIP 612 Universal Remote by searching for the code, follow these steps:

  1. Turn the device you would like to control on.
  2. Press and hold the mode (TV, VCR, or AUX) button until all the other buttons light up, and then let go. The mode button will flash.
  3. FOR AUX MODE ONLY - Press 0 for a 2nd TV, 1 for a 2nd VCR, or 2 for a receiver, amplifier or tuner. Then press the STAR (*) button.
  4. Press POWER to put your remote into scan mode.
  5. Press the UP or DOWN ARROW repeatedly until your device turns off. Each arrow press tries the next code your remote knows for your selected device type. When your device turns off, you have found a compatible code. When the remote runs out of codes to try, the device will flash rapidly eight times.
  6. Press POUND (#). The mode button will flash three times as it stores the found code.
  7. Turn the device back on and try some of the other buttons to make sure they work. If all functions work, your remote has been successfully programmed.
  8. If the code didn't work, repeat this scanning procedure to find a more compatible code. When your device turns off during your next scan, press the arrow key again until the device turns back on to signify you have found the next compatible code.
Your device's remote control codes for your TV, VCR, or receiver are now programmed into your DISH Solo DVR ViP 612 remote control.

(The other way to program your DISH Solo DVR ViP 612 remote control is to look at the tables in back of the user manual, and enter the code directly.)

I hope that helps.

I am trying to readdress remote tv2 21.0 IR/UFH PRO but to receiver DISH network VIP 222k. we have tried every way and it always switches remote address tv1. we tried all the steps from the handbook b


Hello, German Quinchia!

I would be happy to provide assistance on this. It sounds like the remote itself may need to be setup correctly. Since this is going to be the second TV, on the bottom of the remote, make sure there is a blue 2 at the bottom instead of a green 1. Once you have the blue 2 showing, try addressing the remote again.

If the problem persists, remove the battery cover. Inside will be a switch. Make sure the switch is toggled to UHF rather than IR. Let me know here if the problem still continues after that.

Cannot enter system wizard in Dish Network VIP211k


Hey Jim,

I apologize for any confusion. Our 211k receivers don't have the system wizard option. That feature is on the 222k/722k/922/Hopper receivers.

Let's check out the remote to see what can be done! If the remote is no longer working, make sure there is nothing that can cause interference like a heat source near the receiver, or direct sunlight on the receiver. If that's all clear, try readdressing the remote. I have listed the steps below!

Addressing Remote to Receiver:

1.) Go to System Info screen.
2.) Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
3.) Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
4.) Press the pound (#) button.
5.) Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
6.) Test remote and see if it works.

If the problem continues, let me know and I will be happy to assist you further!

I just switched to an HD receiver. The sound on the HD Channels is lower than the sound on the regular channels. How can I fix this? Dishnetwork has aready checked their end.


Some Sanyo TV's have a feature called Dynamic volume, this feature can be enabled by just pressing the dynamic volume button on the factory remote. We happen to offer a similar feature called volume leveling on our VIP 722k, 612, and 222k receivers. This is a recently released feature that will keep the volume even, during commercials or when changing channels. To access this press menu 6-1-6 and select enable under volume leveling.

Sounds stop working after about 1 to 2 hours of viewing.


We would be happy to help you with this. The volume levelingfeature that we have sounds perfect for this situation; it keeps the volumelevels consistent between programming and commercials and also prevents drasticvolume level changes when switching between HD and SD programming. The volumeleveling feature is supported by the following receivers: ViP 222k, ViP 612,ViP 722k, and ViP 922; the model number of your receiver is displayed onthe front in the lower left corner. Your receiver needs to be connected by onof the following: composite cable (green, blue, red cables), coax cable (singlecable with metallic tip), HDMI or optical devices that do not support Dolbyaudio.

Start by pressing the menu button on your DISH Network remote control, thenpress the number 6 for system setup then 7 for audio output. Once therehighlight the "Enable" option below Volume Leveling and press select.Once enable exit the menu by selecting done on the right side of the screen.

We hope this helps to get things set up the way you like it. Thanks forchoosing DISH Network!

My HD VIP 612 Solo DVR keeps freezing every now and then during a show and then manually resetting. This happens maybe once or twice a week. What do I do?


Hi! i will be more than glad to assist you in this concern, lets isolate 1st the problem, if the power of your vip 612 is connected to a power strip, unplug it from the power strip or surge protector for 1minute, then plug in, it will turn on by itself, then you will see, attention 015, let the progress finish and it will download the programming guide, then it will show the picture on the tv. granting the problem didnt exist., it means that the problem is solve, the surge protector or power strip is the one doing it to the receiver, why? sometime the power strip or surge protector does not give the 100% curreny needed by the dvr system, main job of the power strip or surge protector is to protect from power surge thats all but it does not regulate the current needed by the dvr. Lets say it freeze again, this is waht we are going to do, press the menu button on the upper left of the remote, once u see the main menu, press 6,1,1 on the remote and it will go to the point dish screen, selct check switch that is on the uppeer right of the screen, then it will go to the installation summary, select test and it will run a check switch test, it will go on testing up to 1 of 3 or 4 it depends on the sat you have on the lnbf. once its done, it should show the whole installation summary, port1-119-ok, port2-110-ok, port3-129 or 61.5, once you see it, select done and it will go to the point dish, select done and cancel all the way out, it will show you attention 015 and then it will download the programming guide, then you got the picture, observe it if the problem dont exist anymore. if the problem dont exist, then u fix the problem but granting the problem still there, you need to call 1-800-333-3474 call the tech support of dish network and inform them the problem that you are experiencing for the past few weeks and the steps that you did.. this is a dvr lost of function, dvr is bad and it needs to be replace.. if you have any query pls feel free to get in touch
