H-24 not turning on

    Hi Everyone

    I have a H-24 receiver that is no longer turning on. Started a little while ago. Neither attempting to turn the receiver on from the remove or front panel works. The only option I have is to disconnect power and then connect it back. The receiver goes through its power on sequence and turns on normally. Everything works again for a while.

    I have the Power Savings turned on. I suspect that it's keeping it from turning on. For now I turned it off and will see what happens.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Thanks,
    Pat

    I did have this problem with my C41 a long while back. I also had to turn off the power saver and then do some sort of hard reset. I've never had any "H-" receivers, so I can't speak to this, but I'm sure Peds or HoTat or one of the other gurus will come along and advise more thoroughly.

    Here I come. :righton:

    Make sure the HD receiver is not plugged in to one of those "smart" power strips.
