Error 775 SWM problem


Error 775 SWM problem

Ok, so my tv has been working fine until I came home from work today and there was a 775 error message saying the tv couldn't communicate withe the sattelite. So I called Directv and they said it is the SWM box. The green light is not on. I've checked and everything is screwed on tight is there anything else I can do to try to fix the problem myself? Can it be reset or anything? Today is Tuesday and they can't send anyone out to fix it until Saturday.

If you had the system hook to the internet then you can go to directv.com/getconnect and login and then you can watch it on a cell phone or tablet or laptop for now till the Tech comes out. Hope it helps

Re: Error 775 SWM problem

Directv is not working. Every thing is screwed in tight. Called Directv I was told to disconnect the SWIM inverter and after a few seconds plug it into another plug. Did so it worked for a while then the 775 error message came back. They want me to pay $99 for a tech to come out or $8 a month. what can I do to fix this
