Why does my DVR keep turning off, and how can I fix it?
A TiVo box may appear to be off when it is in standby mode. The lights on the front of the box will be off and no audio or video will be sent to the TV. If you attempt to fix the problem by unplugging the box and then plugging it back in, it will display the normal startup screens. When it finishes starting up, the screen will go blank and the lights on the front of the unit will go out as it goes back into standby mode.
Press the TiVo or LIVE TV/GUIDE button to bring the box out of standby mode.
Note: If your TiVo box does power on, but you do not see any screens on your TV, go to article.
