The receiver powers on and off by itself, the power light flashes.

Symptom
The receiver powers on and off by itself, the power light flashes.

Cause
This can be caused by a nearby remote on the same address, IR or UHF interference, IR pyramids repeating the remote signal, or a bad power supply. If the front panel power LED light comes on or the lights flash alternately with no video on the TV, the receiver is updating software and guide information.

Prevention
Set a random remote address, keep the receiver out of direct sunlight, connect an attenuator to the UHF Remote Antenna connection. This cannot be prevented if the receiver is updating software or guide information.

Troubleshooting

1. Unplug the CM-7000PAL from the AC electrical outlet, plug the CM-7000PAL back in and power it on.


2. Bypass any surge protector and plug directly into a known working outlet (this may require an extension cord). If the receiver powers on at the new outlet you may need an electrician.


3. If the problem persists please contact us or a local independent retailer for additional assistance.
