Question about RCA DIRECTV Satellite Remote Control

1 Answer

Hughes box wont power on.

Lost power for about 10 minutes in the house. Once power was restored, downstairs TV and dvd equipment power on work fine, but the Direct TV Hughes box, that is connected to these downstairs wont power on. The green on light keeps flickering, but niether the remote or manual pushing of the power button works.

I have the same setup upstairs and it continues to work just fine.

Lost channels how do i restor

Try to program with the remote first=in menu selected auto program-also if a box for cable/sat is in line consider it may be damaged.

A simple test is to see if a DVD etc works at all on set---try to see what is and what is not working one at a time.

I cannot use the DVD play function with the control box I have. The control box which came with the TV is lost can I get a replacement

We would be happy to help you with getting your DISH remote working with DVD player. In order for us to give you a specific code for your DVD player we would need to know the brand. We recommend performing a power scan; this scans the remote for a code that will work with your DVD player. Power scan instructions:

Step 1:
Press and hold the VCR/DVD mode button until all mode button back lights illuminate,then release.

Step 2:
Press and release the Power button.

Step 3:
Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desiredequipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will poweroff.

Step 4:
Press the pound (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, themode light flashes three times.
After doing the power scan please remember to put the remote back into SATmode. Thanks so much for being a valued DISH Network customer!

''no signal'' message on blue screen after watching for 10-30 min

First try another signal input like a DVD player or other source, is the signal displayed ok? Then you have lost the signal on one input from whatever the device is.

I am not sure but maybe purchase a DVD cleaner kit for the player around $10. USD, and make sure the DVD itself is clean and without scratches. Also, try dvd player on another tv to see if it is OK. Other than that input settings. I do not know of any inherent design problems in the unit. Have you tired their web site?
