  4. I had a power outage – receiver won’t power on

Receiver power failures are rare unless there was a power surge. Common losses of receiver power are faulty surge protectors, local power outages or an Off light switch.

  1. Check that wall switch is on
    Check that any wall switch or power strip powering your DISH receiver is on.
  2. Check that front panel powers receiver
    Press power button on front panel (some may be inside front panel door) to see if the receiver powers on.
    If so – Go to Remote Control
  3. Reset receiver
    If the issue is only on ONE receiver, unplug the DISH receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in.
    It may take up to 5 mintues for the reset process to be completed.
