My Sling adapter will not power on any longer, for some reason.  Is there any way to troubleshoot what the problem might be?

 

Thanks,

Aaron

You could try dropping it on the floor to see if that would wake it up.  If not, get it replaced.  It's not unusual for those adapters to die.

Don't do that. Just skip the dropping part and contact Dish to have it replaced.

Aaron,

I can help you with the Sling Adapter not powering on, have you tried the front USB port of the HD dual DVR? Please PM me with the phone number on the account.

Thanks

I have a Hopper and mine stopped working at around the same time.  No red light. I know USB ports work.  How can I resolve this issue.  Strange that this has happened to a few owners at the same time.....

 

Thanks for any help!
