If your DISH receiver is not turning on, this problem is typically caused by an issue with electrical power or the DISH receiver.

Troubleshooting steps:

  1. Try the Front Panel.
    On the front of your DISH receiver, press and release the power button.

  1. Check the power cord.
    Make sure the power cord of the DISH receiver is plugged into the wall outlet.
  1. If the power light blinking?

If the power light of the DISH receiver is blinking, then the receiver is in RECOVERY mode. Recovery can take up to 4 hours to complete. Please wait for the receiver to finish before continuing troubleshooting.

If the light is not blinking or the light has been blinking for more then 4 hours, continue troubleshooting.

  1. Check ventilation

Your receiver needs ventilation for proper operation, or it may not power on. Make sure it is not in an enclosed cabinet and has at least 4 inches of space from other electronic devices.

If problems remain, preform a Power Reset on your receiver, by Unplugging the receiver from the power outlet for 10 seconds, and then plug it back in.
