Two weeks ago we upgraded to the 622 receiver. All went very well until this a.m. When I powered it on nothing happened, and very 35 seconds the power light flash on/off followed by all of the lights flashing on/off.

No error messages appeared the receiver would not display on our plasma TV. I did a power reset to no avail; I unplugged the power and plugged it in. No results. Same light show.

I called dishnetwork and they are sending us a new receiver. After about 4 hours the receiver came to life. We watched it for a while and then went out. Before leaving I powered it OFF. Upon returning I powered it ON and the same flashing light phenomena is occurring.

It may display on the TV in a few hours. I'm not sure. Does anyone know what the flashing lights indicate?

Note also that we have an older receiver on a standard TV. It works just fine.

Thanks in advance

If the LED lights are flashing on/off one time, they do this during the receiver's reboot sequence.
First the single green LED lights, then goes out, then all the LED's flash at once.
It sounds like your receiver is hanging in a reboot sequence, and needs to be replaced.
