    Hit 'Select' on one of my 622's this morning and it didn't wake up. Tried it several times with TV1 remote, including standing 3 feet from the receiver, and then a couple times with the TV2 remote. All this took less than a minute. The last time I saw anything like this was last year with my other 622 and that unit turned out to be completely dead and had to be replaced.

    Just when I'd given up hope, probably another 30 or 40 seconds, the 622 woke up and appears to be operating normally. This was about 5:45 AM CDT. Nightly updates come at 3 AM but I wonder if I interrupted some other operation triggered by DISH. Or is this a sign the 622 is about to expire?

    Expire? Not yet. Next time press red button behind front door - RBR.

    I'm sure that this issue was frustrating! Our receivers do not expire at a certain time. If this issue occurs again please let us know so that we can look into this further for you.

    It happened again this morning. This time I had turned on the TV before attempting to wake the 622 so I saw something onscreen that I didn't see the first time. The screen saver was onscreen as usual. But when I pressed "Select" to wake the receiver I saw the tuner 1 icon displayed and the words "please wait". I didn't time it but I'd estimate it took 30 to 40 seconds before the receiver awoke. It worked fine after that. Have had no other problems with this receiver. I put it to sleep about 10:30 last night.

    The exact same thing happened to me this morning on my 722. I've never seen this before.

    I've had the 'please wait' message a couple times when waking my 722k. Never ceases to make me a bit nervous, but it's always gone away after a while

    I've had to power button reset my 722 a few times now because "Please wait…" hasn't gone away after several minutes. :(

    The 722 I had to power button reset just had to be replaced, so I think at least in my case it was a failing hard drive.

    Earlier this month, my 622 died and had to be replaced. Dish sent a refurb unit and all was well for a couple of weeks, then that unit died. Dish agreed to send another, but I was leaving town for a few days. The tech said my case was documented and to call when I was returning to get the "new" unit. I did, but the woman I spoke with said that I would have to go through the troubleshooting protocol again as she had not dealt with me originally. I suggested that she just ship the replacement as promised. After about 20 minutes of arguing, she agreed to do so. However, she threatened that if the replacement didn't work they would send a tech and charge me for the visit. The replacement arrived and is working.

    Two concerns:

    Are the 622's now through so many refurb cycles that they are not reliable for a reasonable period of time?

    Is it Dish policy to threaten customers when their hardware proves unreliable?


    I suggested to the tech that if this 622 dies in the near future, Dish will lose a customer of 9 years. She didn't care.

    You are probably leasing the 622 so DISH owns it and will service it as long as you rent it from them. The CSR you talked to was probably a low level knows little which is why CSR roulette is so popular. You will get much better service by contacting a DIRT representative. Posters #3 and #8 are DIRT representatives.
