    For 2 plus years our 622 has been flawless.
    This morning our power went off for about 10 seconds.
    Now this has happened many times over the past 2 years.
    Every time the 622 has kicked back on and worked perfectly.

    This time.

    622 went into it's reboot mode.
    And that's where it's stuck.
    Transponder #s are changing but nothing else.
    We do have access to recorded material.

    I tried another soft reset and still the same.


    Hammer and duct tape???

    Try a hard reset (unplug it for 30 secs). If it still fails, you need a replacement.

    Did hard reset still nothing.
    checked my other Dish receiver and it can't find a signal either.

    I went thru a bunch of stuff with Dish tech support.

    He said it's the LNBF.

    If it's the LNB, you can't do much except wait for it to be replaced. I just had mine replaced on both dishes a few weeks back.

    Did they make an appointment for someone to come out and replace them? Not much we can help with. Sounds about right if neither receiver is working. It could also be a cable or connector problem at the dish feed but unless you want to start replacing things I would let the service guy come out and determine what the problem is.

    How are your receivers connected to your dish?

    Do you have a 1000.2, a dish 1000?

    Do you have a DPP44 switch?

    Describe your total system, since it appears to not be the 622.

    After going through 10 921's and 1 942 E* finally gave me a 622 as a replacement. Before I hooked it up I bought one of these:
    This is the best insurance you can get to protect your DVR from fluctuations in your power service. I already had one black-out that happened after I installed this UPS. When it became apparent that the blackout was going to exceed the battery life, I shut down the 622 using the button on the UPS. The 622 came back on line without a glitch once the power came back on.

    I have a Dish 1000.

    No DPP44.

    This photo is what I have on the outside of my house.
    Installer only ran new coax from the dish to this connection which is left over from Time Warner. Then used the existing house coax to the 622 feeding 1 TV and a 625 feeding 2 TVs. Very basic system I think.

    Since your connections are above a dryer vent I would suggest you check them for moisture or corrosion on the center conductor.

    As stated in my 1st post, we lost signal to the 2 DVRs immediately when we had a 10 second power failure.

    Today...48 hours later a thunderstorm comes thru and the signal comes back to both DVRs.

    Dish has sent me a new LNBF. It will be here tomorrow.

    If a LNBF goes out, can it come back on or once they're dead they're dead?

    Should I bother to replace it or as BNUMM suggests, look for a connector problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    The top fitting on the right looks like it might be an old fitting from Cable TV. I would check the fittings to be safe.

    I had an LNBF on a Dish 500 that would fail every afternoon when the sun would hit it and heat it up. After dark it worked fine. My guess would be that you have a marginal connection to the LNBF and it's not getting quite enough power. I would check the connections and replace the LNBF.
