HD DVR black screen
Posted 25 September 2010 - 12:19 PM
I have a directv hd dvr that has been doing a LOT of strange and irritating things lately. We will be watching and for no reason it goes to a black screen for a couple seconds then we see no signal then it pops back on. It also will all of a sudden have the right side of the screen on the left and the left on the right. There are some other things it does but they are hard to explain. I called DTV and they had me do something like a defrag or disc check on it. It is still doing some of the stuff. Could it be the reciever or cables or the little b band converter in the back? I am over all this aggravation with this thing - we can't sit down and watch soemthing without these blips happening.
It will go to black screen for a few seconds and have black and white zig zaggy lines across the bottom part of the screen. When I push the back buttom for a few seconds it clears up for a bit then starts again. So it is not recording the problem. It is not hooked up with hdmi so it is not that cable. Also I can hear the audio when the screen goes black. This is driving me nutty!!!
Thanks for ideas or help!!
