Connecting screen and keeps flashing

I have three receivers,  two of them work fine and no problem  one is a very small receiver with no dvr and the screen comes up with    DIRECTV,  and under it says connecting with a progress bar under it and the entire screen flashes on and off.

 

Please help   the other two receivers work fine.  only this one

Re: Connecting screen and keeps flashing

First thing to try is resetting your main Genie DVR using the red button near the access card.

Thank you. I had the same problem for a couple days. Resetting the main receiver worked. Woot! Woot!

Re: Connecting screen and keeps flashing

Resetting did not help. If anything it made it worse. It wont stay connected longer than 2 minutes. HELP.  I'm getting really frustrated.

Re: Connecting screen and keeps flashing

I am having the same issues.... My Genie Mini is flashing on my Vizio TV “connecting”.... I have reset the mini and the wireless bridge in our living room and it hasn’t solved anything... The main DVR is in my parents room.... We have a wireless genie in the main living room and it is connecting fine and my parents is working just fine, but my wife and my genie mini is not connecting....

Re: Connecting screen and keeps flashing

Small box where U change to video , Etal keeps flashing and changing.  Found out if U unplug TV when not watching, this will solve the problem.Seems to be the EMERSON brand TV. Doesn't happen on any of the other TVs here.

Re: Connecting screen and keeps flashing

By any chance, does composite video go through to your tv?  There's some weirdness with the copyright protection on the receiver that wont allow hdmi signals to travel to older or not copyright supported tvs. I had one and it was a Vizio.
