Question about DISH Network IR Remote Control
1. TV on.
2. On your Dish Network remote PRESS AND HOLD the small clear tv button until all buttons across the top of the remote light up and release.The only button lit should be the clear tv button that will be flashing.
3. Press the small red tv button next to the power button and release it. This should leave the clear tv button that was flashing lit solid.
4. Now slowly depress the channel up key until the tv turns off.Each time the up channel button is depressed the clear tv button will cease being lit and once it is released the clear tv button should remain solid. If the clear tv button flashes multiple times it usually means there is no known code for your tv, there may be another code that will work so continue on.
5. Once you are successful in getting the TV turned off press the channel down button once and then the channel up button. This should turn the TV back on.
6.Press the # key button on the remote. The clear tv button should flash three times then press the record button and try the volume up/down and the small red tv button. You should be able to turn volume up and down and turn tv on /off. If only one of these function it means that you have only found a half code and need to try the process again. Not all TV's have full codes or any codes at all especially combo units.
This is the easier of the two methods as it sometimes will find codes that will work but are not listed. If you prefer to try the method of entering in the code numbers for your TV I gladly get them for you however I will need to know the brand of tv and if it is a combo DVD or VHS model, your receiver type, and the remote type which can be found on the back of thew remote. I also have provided the link to Dish Networks Tech Portal SO YOU CAN LOOK UP THE CODES FOR THE TV TYPE THAT YOU HAVE BASED ON THE RECEIVER YOU ARE USING THE 8.0 IN CONJUNCTION WITH. The 8.0 was only issued with the 381 and 811 receivers and are pretty old from the technology standpoint and therefore newer model tvs may not be supported by this remote.
If this remote was sent to you though as a replacement and will not operate the receiver please let me know that as well as that will be a different procedure. I hope this assists you and thank you for using Fix Ya. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
