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.
