Use these tables if you have problems using the system before calling the
Customer Service Center. Many problems arise from misunderstandings of how
the system works, especially when you are just becoming familiar with it. These
tables cover many problems, usually with a simple solution for each one. To
solve a particular problem, do the following:
1. Review the section in this Guide that relates to the problem.
2. If you cannot find a solution, then find the section in the following tables
that relates to the problem.
Read the What's Happening column until you find the problem.
Read the information in the Possible Reason column.
Try each of the suggested solutions in the What to Do column.
3. Sometimes resetting the receiver can fix a minor problem. See Resetting
Your Receiver on 117.

purchase and either your customer account number, the receiver conditional
access number, or the receiver model number. Display the Important System
Information menu to find these numbers (See Ordering Your Programming
on page 6). Also, write down any error messages that the receiver displays
on the television screen.
