Get a hold of dish network, you don't own the receiver it would be up to them to service it or replace it, but that doesn't sound normal for it to run all the time

I don't know a whole lot about electronic equipment, but I've never seen anything connected in so many ways at the same time. Maybe the antenna and one other type of connection. The different signals from all the connections are probably confusing each other. I would try one connection at a time to see if the problem improves. Good Luck.

Your problem may be as simple as having the UHF antenna on the back of the receiver moved closer to the second TV. I suggest pigtailling it. This is a job best left to a professional due to the different configurations that may exist and assuring you have properly made connections. If this is an ongoing issue talk with the CSC agent and refuse to pay the service fee based on your past issues with the system. There are many other possibilities that could be the cause but this is the most likely and least involved approach and I am 99.9 percent sure this will solve your issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Hi there, they problem is not in the input to the tv (dvd/cable etc) your powerboard/videoboard is overheating! Right away place a fan as close to the back of the tv as possible, this will help cool the circuits down and might considerably prolong the usefullness of the tv..The next step in it breaking down is total powerloss, or a blinking powerlight, eitherway this is your solution;The caps (capacitors) in the powerboard are going out. This is a very common problem in all class and price ranges of modern lcd and plasma tv's/ monitor's. I don't know if this problem has been like this for awhile or it just started, but either way, if the tv takes an abnormal amount of time to "warm" up then it most likely will go out all the way sometime in the (near) future. If you have a tiny bit of will and knowledge ypou can open the unit and get to the print board. Examine this for "popped" capacitors, they will have a buldging top instead of a flat one. Im gonna try to include a pic of them here, if i can get it this time, I've tried bfore lol. But you can google image a "popped" or "bad" capacitor and you would be able, with ease, to diagnose if you have any of these. Usually only one or two. Radioshack sells capacitors (couple anyway) for $1.59 each. MAKE SURE the replacement is of the SAME voltage or HIGHER, or you will be right back replacing those 2. Every capacitor has a negative pole marked with an (-) on the side of the capacitor(by one of the "legs", always puit the negative (-) "leg" of the new capacitor in the same hole in the printboard as where the previous negative (-) "leg" of the capacitor was ( a capacitor with the negative and positive "legs" put in backwards will result in the new piece "popping" as sson as you turn it on!!) make sure the "uf" rating (for example the most common popped capacitor is the 1000 uf) is the same as the one you are replacing. I needed 1000 uf, 105 c and 26v (volt) ratings for the 1 capacitor I needed to replace to fix my LG 19" lcd panel monitor I found by the trash that the light came on off, but it didn't come on. I replaced that capacitor with ; 1000uf, 85 c and 36 v (volts0...It works fine eventhough the volts and the temperature rating (36v and 85c) was not the same as the (26v(volt) and 105c ) capacitor I removed !! Further, I've replaced capacitors that had the celcius rating of 105 with the only ones Radioshack had, namely 85 c(celsius) they have been working great, but I'm not sure about any effect, nor have I heard or read (yet?) about that making an urgent difference. Many threads that I've read people have done the same, so we should be ok (my stuff has been running good for a while longer then most brand new ones!.............(all these ratings ; 'uf ' and 'c' etc are on the side of the capacitor you are replacing and on the side of the ones you are replacing them with)...For all this all you need is the cheapest solder gun u can find (I bought one for $7.99 at Radioshack), a camera (to take pictures as you go to remember how to reassemble the unit) and, once you have your materials, 20 minutes to replace 2 or 3 capacitors and you are good to go...Most monitors and tvs (lcd/plasma) I've seen you have to lay flat on the ground/bed/blanket etc, to work on (screen side down). Usually there are 2 or 3 screws (or a few more) to remove, then you will have to carefully (its comes off easily most times)insert a flat screwdriver inbetween the casing and gently pry it up as you go around the whole frame. Sometimes you have to remove the little washer arouind the cable input orso, just be gentle and you cant go wrong. Once insidet here will be a box with wires running to the sides etc...unplug, gently, these wires and open the box. Inside you will find 2 or 3 circuitboards, check them all for "popped" capacitors, replace, reassemble and plug it in....Have fun becoming an overnight tv mechanic lol! If this helped (or not )please rate, thank you!d4195d7.jpg

SOURCE: Fan on Dish Network's VIP722k

Hello, this is Nick Franta with DISH Network Customer Support.

It is normal for the fan on the 722k receiver to run often to cool down the system. If the receiver is in an enclosed space that could cause the receiver to overheat which would make the fan run continuously.

If you have any further questions let us know.

SOURCE: Screen "blinks" black every few minutes - Dish Network

Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. When the picture alternately goes from normal to a black screen, it is an indication of an intermitten signal issue. You can attempt to reset the receiver box by unplugging it from the power for 10 seconds and letting it reboot. Hopefully this will resolve your issue.

Why does my Dish Network DVR-625 DTV receiver sound like it is running all the time


The Dish 625 as with the other Dish DVR systems has a fan built into the back of the unit. The fan runs nearly all the time to keep the internal drive cool. Sometimes the fan sounds louder that normal. what I do from time to time is take my shop vac and or the small vac u you use to clean your computer. and clean the vents around the fan. I do this on my desk top computer also.. Hope this helps.

Fan running continually on sky box


You don't state which model, but it may be that the fan is blocked with dust so is moving very little air. make sure that the box ix sitting on a hard surface so that the bottom air-vents are not blocked (e.g. by a carpet). On some Thompson models the fan does seem to run constantly.

When the receiver powers up just the fan seems to go on. Resetting by holding the i/o will turn the yellow light off but doesn't turn the fan off and comes back on after you release the i/o...


Hello Joe, my name is Becki, with DISH Network. You will want to make sure that the receiver is in a well ventilated area, and that there is nothing heavy sitting directly on it. The receiver's fan can start running constatntly if the unit starts to overheat. You may also want to try putting the receiver out on the floor for a few hours to cool down. You can also try to unplug the receiver from the power source for 10 seconds, that can be a more thourough reset than holding the power button down. The fan will run while starting the receiver up, for about 5 minutes, then it should stop running loudly. If you continue to have problems, please let me know!

My dish network reciever vip622 dvr fan runs all the time. Is this normal


I have the same issue and find it unbelievable that the Dish Network DVR is so noisy. It's virtually a deal killer, except now I have the damn dish on my roof. Why can't Dish commission a better quality product?

Today I get home and my dish dvr has a loud fan sound like a computer fan that wont stop running it doesnt matter if the dvr is on or off


Hello this is Nick Franta with DISH Network.

The DVR fan does typically runs most of the time the receiver is on (or recently turned off). Since the DVR controls the option of stopping live programming and skipping back it is always in use so the fan will continually run. If the sound continues non-stop for the next 48-72 hours we may want to send a replacement receiver for you. You can contact me at nick.franta@dishnetwork.com if it does continue to be troublesome.

No satellite signel - we were watching a program -


while ice can cause signal loss, there is a simple test to determine if there is an inline signal problem.

press MENU - 6 -1 - 1 and select check switch, then select test...

it will start at Testing 1 of 1.. then will change...

if it changes to 1 of 3 there is either something (ice) blocking the dish or the dish is no longer aligned.

if it goes to 1 of 38 the dish is no longer connected to your receiver.

Annoying total green screen on dish network.


mtanner55,

Normally when the receiver is stuck in a certain mode, it will reboot. From your post, it sounds like this is what is happening. Have your tried to unplug the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds? This will generally take care of minor problems that may be developing. If it continues to occur, we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.

Connect a Dish VIP622 to a DVD/VCR


Hi piautewith the VIP622 receiver connecting to your DVD/VCR player you will need theinput/output jacks. To setup recordings to your VCR/DVD player, you will want torun from receiver output to VCR/DVD input and from VCR/DVD output to TV input. Thefan on the VIP622 receiver is just like the fan in a computer tower. Even ifthe receiver is off the fan will still run to keep unit the right temperature foryour DVR receiver.

Dish 625 shuts off without warning and fan runs high


Unfotunately this is an event known as power cycling and the only resolution is another receiver. This issue is due to faulty internal components and has nothing to do with anything other than that fact. If you have further questions feel free to contact me. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
