Came home to our 922 with fan running and no lights had to pull the power plug. Ran for a few minutes blank screen fan noise again. Received the replacement today from Dish. Exact same issues. Appears to be a common problem I guess based on some posts in this forum. Technician coming out on Friday hope he has a magic wand or at least a working receiver with him.

Based on my own observations, I had 3 replacements sent out over the course of a couple of weeks before I got one that was stable. However, it is beginning to act up and as soon as it goes south I am done with this model receiver.

I know this can be upsetting and I am happy to help you today! After you plugged it back in, did you see an error message on the screen? Is the receiver inside a cabinet or open air? Would you please PM me with the phone number on the account?

 

Thanks

Hi Mike, thank you for the response. No error messages for either receiver at any point. The receiver location is an open air shelf. I will PM you the phone number. Thanks!

I had my first 922 for quite a while... lost track of the time actually... and it went this way one day a couple of years back I believe...  black screen and whirring fans with no hints at any problems the day before it failed so spectacularly.  No problems with the replacement going on a couple of years now.
