My dish network receiver will not start up.
I've worked at Dish for 5 years. I am in the Advanced Broadband Support department, where I work as a Team...Accepted answer
It sounds like your receiver is going out. The only things you can try are to do a hard reset(unplug it which you've already done), and also to bypass any power strips/ surge protectors)
If that doesn't work you will need to get the receiver replaced. Sometimes, you can leave the receiver unplugged for an hour and it will boot back up, but I think the receiver is definitely going bad. You can either call 1800-333-3474 for our replacement or ask one of our online chat support reps at http://www.dish.com/chat/ . if you have two receivers in the same room with this issue within 30 days then you may need a tech out to check that your dish is properly grounded.
let me know If there is anything I can do to help.
