- Refresh your service and follow the instructions.
- You may need to perform Step 1 and Step 2 in conjunction fully resolve this.
Note: In some instances, you may not have these channels, log into your account at www.DIRECTV.com to verify and order!
Cable connections and power
Verify all connections (wall to the receiver, receiver to TV) are placed firmly into the device. If the cables going from the wall to the equipment are damaged and believe this is causing loss of service, chat with us.
Check the power cord and make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet. In some instances, a light switch controls power to an outlet. Make sure it is on. We recommend plugging the receiver into a dedicated outlet.
No input message or blank screen
In rare instances, the input can be changed by accident. You may bump into the TV or sit on the remote. To fix this, select input on the TV or remote until you see a picture. It can take a second or two for the picture to populate so don't rush through. You may need to use the remote that belongs to the television and not the DIRECTV remote.
If the above does not help and service and weather is not an issue, feel free to chat with our support teams by clicking here. Also, Dish Alignment could be a factor, this article has information on how to check.
