View Full Version : Insert proper access card - wtf

08-21-2003, 03:43 PM

I just got my card done and hit the 8675309 reset. Now the UTV is telling me to insert the proper access card, what do I do to get rid of this message and watch!

Thanks for all of the help

The 8675309 reset?

I'm not familiar with that one. I always use the 12357 receiver card slot soft reset. Rarely it doesn't work and I do the drastic unplug reset. If that doesn't work then inevitably there is something wrong with the card.

Wasn't there a song about 8675309? For a good time call it. LOL

check out http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=20076 i posted a list of codes from a hidden file on utv called SecretCodes.html(located at file://Content/InternalOnly/Test/SecretCodes/ also the content dir is the contents of the Content dir are from the compressed image BrowserData.image from any of the builds)

8675309 - Boot into Mini-Browser for downloading Boot or App ROMS (primarily development use for flashing BootROMS; unknown build)._;Currently work with external bootrom(2545) only Oct,2000

i think you should use

12357 - Here's what it does: a) Clear dialing options. b) Clear tellyscript and send user back through scriptless. c) Turn on audible dialing for diagnostic purposes. (unknown build)


32768 - Clear flash NV RAM (including tellyscript, dialing options, etc.). If the box is locked, then this secret code is disabled._ (When the box is locked, the message light on the box flashes 5 times)

for soft resets

Thanks BlueCop, your help as always is very appreciated...It would seem that 32768, 12357 dont work. Is it that the unit locked (blinks 5 times when I turn it off). How do I unlock it? Now when the card is in it says insert your card??? WTF

It sounds like you have a defective access card. Call 800-347-3288 and they will most likely send you a new one for free.
