direct tv
TV Technician: James, Technician replied 8 years ago
Hi There,

DirecTV seem to be having major outages at the moment, so it might be worth taking this into account before trying anything else. The easy fix is to do the following:

  • Unplug your receiver and wait 15 seconds.
  • Plug the receiver back in and when the front panel lights come on unplug the receiver a second time and wait another 15 seconds.
  • Plug your receiver back in and this should resolve the issue.
