DIRECTV Error Code 750


If you’re seeing “Service Not Active” on your TV screen, it could be because of one of the following reasons:

  • You don’t have active DIRECTV service
  • You have DIRECTV without the applicable Advanced Receiver Services

Before you begin troubleshooting, make sure you have access to your receiver.

Step 1

If you have active DIRECTV service on your receiver, try resetting it. If you do not have DIRECTV service, you can sign up online. Select an entertainment package that’s right for you

Step 2

If you’re still seeing the error message after resetting your receiver, you may be missing Advanced Receiver Services on your account. This can happen if you’re using your HD or HD DVR receiver (Model H20 or HR20) to view off-air HD channels, but all your other channels are in Standard Definition. To fix this, please add the following services to your account:
  • If you have a standard HD receiver (not an HD DVR), you need Advanced Receiver Service-HD
  • If you have an HD DVR, you need Advanced Receiver Service (ARS)

You can add those services yourself in My Account or by calling Customer Service at 1-800-531-5000. For more information about our receiver fee structure, read this FAQ.
