Hi, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. I would be happy to help with any remote issues you're experiencing. Normally if the remote is stuck on VCR mode you would need to try replacing the batteries first. Once you have replaced the batteries you are going to want to press and hold down the SAT button until it lights up red and flashes after you release. This should put your remote back in SAT mode. If this does not resolve your issue you may need to readdressing the remote to the receiver. I will list the instruction here for you to do so. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions please let me know!

Instructions for addressing the remote to the receiver
  1. Go to System Info screen.You can do this by either pressing the system info button on the front of the receiver or by pressing the power button once and the channel up button once on the front of the receiver.
  2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  4. Press the pound (#) button.
  5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful, the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

Hello, it sounds like you may need a replacement remote. Normally if the volume button was not working at all you would probably just need to readdress the remote to the TV but in this case the remote does work sometimes. Try changing the batteries if you have not already done so. If you have changed the batteries and are still experiencing this issue you will need a replacement remote. I would be happy to look into getting a remote sent out to you. Please email me directly at Cheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com with either your name and phone # on the account or the account #. Thank you.

Hi, my name is Cheri Torres and I am with DISH Network Customer Service. I came across your post recently and wanted to see if I could help. It sounds like your remote may need to be readdressed to your receiver and TV in order to control all other functions. In order to readdress the remote to your TV I would need the model number of the remote and the brand name of the TV. The model number of the remote should be located on the back of the remote at the top usually a two to three digit number with a decimal point. I will list here for you the instructions for addressing your remote to your DISH Network receiver box. If these instructions do not work for you and your remote is still only controlling the power on/off of the receiver you are going to need a replacement remote. If this is the case or if you need the instructions for addressing your remote to your TV please feel free to email me directly at Cheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com and I would be happy to help further.

Instructions for addressing your remote to your receiver
  1. Go to System Info screen.You can do this by either pressing the system info button on the front of the receiver box once or by pressing the power button once and the channel up button once on the front of the receiver box.
  2. Once you are in the system info screen you will see Remote address or Primary remote address for TV1
  3. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  4. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote. Change the number to something different then what is already listed in the small white square.

First I would check to make sure you have fresh batteries. If it still doesn't work with new batteries try to re-address your remote to your receiver and tv.

For the receiver:
  1. Go to System Info screen
  2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  4. Press the pound (#) button
  5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
If successful the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

For the TV:

Would need to know what kind of TV it is. The following link will help you address the remote to the TV. Click the remote codes hyperlink in Step 1 to get to the codes.

beavs72,

If the Sat button stays lite with no function to control the receiver, either the Sat button is stuck or the remote has gone bad, especially if you already changed the batteries. You can call 1-800-333-3474, speak with Tech Support and if needed, they can send a new remote. I hope this helps.

Guest,

If you are not getting a picture on your TV, check to see which light on the remote lights up when you press the "Select" button. If anything button other than the "Sat" button lights up, the remote is not in satellite mode. Pressing and releasing the "Sat" button on the remote will put the remote back in satellite mode. I hope this helps.

amandaharwoo,

The first thing I would do, if you haven't already, is replace the batteries in the remote. The lights will still illuminate if the batteries are low but won't perform the remote functions. If that doesn't fix the problem, the remote may need to be readdressed to the receiver. I have provided the steps below. If you have further problems, please respond to the site.

  • Remote: All Other Remotes
    1. Go to System Info screen
    2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
    3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
    4. Press the pound (#) button
    5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

Any time a different remote is controlling a different receiver, changing one of the remote addresses on should remedy the situation. I have provided instructions on changing the remote address.

artisyicnell,

Are you still having problems with your remote? If so, there is a tab at the bottom of the remote that send a signal to the receiver box. This tab slides in at the bottom of the remote. Removing the battery cover will give you access to the area where the tab snaps in. I hope this helps.

The easiest solution if you have tried new batteries is to request a replacement remote. This may be done at no cost to you depending on your specific circumstances regarding your account.
