at&t u-verse TV is not available at this time. I repeatedly get this error. Have unplugged the receiver waited 30+ seconds numerous times and still can't get connected. This receiver used to get unplugged, moved and reconnected with no issue.
Anyone have any ideas?

We need a bit more information.
Is this a wireless receiver that you were trying to move to another location? Was it working until you unplugged it and attempted to move it to another location?

Yes it was working until a relatve unpluged it to use the plug where it was powered. It was not a primary watched tv so it wasn't noticed and was unpowered for several days. I plugged it back in expecting it to just go back to normal but continually get the errror message.

I would suggest that you unplug both the wireless receiver and the WAP connected to the gateway. Plug the WAP back in. When the lights are flashing green on the WAP, plug the wireless receiver back in. See if the wireless receiver then pairs with the WAP.

Just checking up on your post. Texasguy37 offered a great suggestion to bring the TV service back to the wireless receiver. Did rebooting the WAP and receiver help restore the picture? If not then I would recommend rebooting the gateway as well, but if that doesn't help either then feel free to let us know about it and we can help you find another solution. Thank you!

Tried that and even hit the reset buton on the WAP to no avail. Takes forever and the same error message displays.

I would recommend that you send a Private Message to the ATTU-verseCare Community Specialist team. One of the specialists will respond to your PM shortly. Please look for the flashing envelope at the top right of the page for your response from a team member.
They can look into the problem and take any actions needed to get you back working.

Thank you for giving that a try, I apologize that it still didn't work. There is one more suggestion we can try before considering a replacement or dispatching a tech. I would recommend performing a Factory Reset on the gateway to refresh your home network altogether. Keep in mind that a Factory Reset will wipe out any custom settings/configurations you may have set in your gateway.
To perform the Factory Reset, simply locate the small red button on the back of the gateway, press and hold it down for 15 seconds. Once the service comes back up, try pairing the devices once more to see if that restores the service. Thank you again for your patience and cooperation!
