Re: IR Extender Blows Box

said by ASR :

Yesterday, I tried to plug in a IR extender into the back of a QIP7232-P2. Not only did it not work, it blew the IR eye on the front of the box so that the remote would not work. I was able to manage the box from my iphone, but Verizon is now sending a new box. Has anyone else had this problem?
Thanks

Probably a dirty contact on ther switch associated with the IR extender jack. Spraying a little 90% denatured alcohol into the hole and the plugging and removing the plug into the hole a few times would most likely have cleaned it. But since VZ is sending a replacement box maybe you'll get a newer model..

Should go without saying "unplug power to box from wall", but for the benefit of the one person who doesn't understand the rules...

Before doing this step, unplug power from the wall, so box is not live.
