005 Smart card issues on new 625
Posted 14 November 2010 - 12:36 AM
Talked to tech twice, no resolve.
Picture freezes...005 appears then after a bit either 122 comes on or it just goes back to the program.
WE have unplugged 3 times and reset and all that crap.
So tech says they want to send ANOTHER reciever or a tech to the house. What a pain. Any other solutions in the magic hat???
Software is up to date and matches. (L544)
Driving me nuts.
btw: This happens about every 10 minutes as if responding to a signal?

Either way get the new replacement and hope for the best.

What is a replacement that IS being made and would be new? SD.
I'm a long time customer and lease the unit, so they'll probably play ball

The 625 requires a separate SmartCard, and it sounds like the SmartCard reader in your unit is failing. You'll need a replacement 625.
*Customers who pass the credit check to qualify for the normal "Dish Home Advantage" promotions generally get HD equipment. Customers with bad credit who only qualify for the "Flex24" or "Flex" will still get SD equipment unless they subscribe to HD and pay the upgrade fees.

Dish Network hasn't manufactured an SD receiver in almost 2 years. All SD equipment is refurbs, and MOST* new installations today are getting HD equipment only, whether they are paying for HD or not.
What about the 512 receiver?
