3.0 IR problem - new batteries in, SAT button stays on
I changed the batteries for the remote and when I press any button the SAT light stays on for a few seconds, and then all four mode lights come on for a few. Now, if I'm quick I can get one command to my SAT receiver before the light gets stuck. any suggestions?

Re: 3.0 IR problem - new batteries in, SAT button stays...
You can check the obvious like ensuring all batteries are oriented correctly or a new set of batteries but when you are done you will more than likely still need a new remote. Call Dish at 1-888-333-3474 and have the CSC send you a new remote. There may or may not be a charge depending on your service plan and when the system was last serviced. thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if you need further assistance.

When you replaced the batteries in the remote, does any light on the top of the remote light up when you press the select button? If any light other than the SAT button lights up, press and release the SAT button to put the remote back into satellite mode, then try the remote to see if it functions correctly. If none of the buttons light up, make sure all batteries are lined up with the + (positive) facing down. If they are, you may need to readdress the remote to the receiver. I hope this helps.
I have provided a link with instructions on how to readdress the remote to the receiver. Step 4 is for address the remote to the receiver. If you have any problems, please let me know.
Are you using good batteries? Does the sat button lights up when you press it? If you are using good batteries and the sat button won't light up each time it is pressed, then you will have to call Dish Network for a remote replacement.
1.Goto System Info screen. You can enter the system info screen by either pressingthe system info button on the front of the DISH receiver box or by pressing thepower button once then the up arrow on the front of the receiver. If theseoptions are unsuccessful you can also open the smart card door on the front leftside of the receiver and pull out the smart card.
2.Onceyou are on the system info screen, hold down the SAT button until all modelights light up.
3.Entera number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
4.Pressthe pound (#) button
5.Oncethe SAT button blinks three times, press record.
Note: If successful the number selected in step 3 willappear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.
The remote is an Ultra High Frequency remote and most universals are IR MAKING THEM INCOMPATIBLE.
Take the TV2 remote into the TV1 location and using the TV1 remote press MENU-MENU. You will now have a screen up that has remote addresses at the bottom. Take the TV2 REMOTE AND PRESS AND HOLD the SAT button on the upper left of the remote until all lights on top illuminate and release. Now key in a two digit number between 1-16 that is not either number on the screen currently and press the pound sign. The SAT button will flash three times now press the record button until the remote addy for tv2 changes to the new number.
You can cancel out of all of these screens with the TV1 remote. Now go to TV2 see if it works. If not try at the receiver. If it works there have Dish send you a new remote.
Have you replaced the batteries in your remote with new batteries? When you press the select button on the remote, which light on the top of the remote lights up? If any button other than the SAT button lights up, press and release the SAT button, then try the remote. If it still doesn't work, you will need to readdress the remote to the receiver. I have provided a link with instructions on how to readdress the remote to the receiver. Select your receiver type and this will open a PDF document with the instructions. I hope this helps.

One of two things may be occurring. The first is the remote address on the remote may have changed some how. The way to reset it is to press and hold the SAT button on the top left side of the remote until all lights across the top illuminate. Now key in 01 and press the pound sign on the bottom right of the remote. The SAT button will flash three times. Now try to operate the system using the remote. If you aren't sucessful your remote may be bad or the remote address of the receiver may not be what initially was recorded. Please let me know if you are unsuccessful or sucessful. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
Try this method as it is a bit easier than keying in different codes. One thing to consider is that not all TV's are compatible with the remote so if you have changed the TV out you may experience this issue. In order to program the remote to the TV turn the TV on and put the remote in SAT mode by pressing the SAT button in the upper left hand corner of the remote.Now press and hold the TV button Next to the SAT button until all buttons light up across the top of the remote and release. Now press the small red TV button and release. This should result in the top clear TV being lit constantly. Now press the arrow up key slowly until the TV turns off. Once it does press the arrow down key once and then the arrow up key. The TV should turn on. Now press the pound symbol at the botttom right of the remote. The TV button on the top should flash three times. Now you can use the remote to control the TV. If you are unable to get the TV to turn off then the TV is not compatible with the remote.

If you want a remote that works via IR to control the satellite receiver you will need a IR only. The IR/UHF type only transmits signals to the receiver by UHF and the IR portion only operates the peripherals in the room such as the TV and VCR. There are some remotes that come with a kit that can change the remote to work as an IR only. I believe you have a TV2 remote and want it to work further away from the receiver particularly the room the TV is in. If this is the case you may have have to change the remote address of the new remote to match that of the old. You can do this by taking the number one remote and pressing menu-menu. Now take the new remote and press and hold the SAT button in the upper left of the remote until all lights across the top light up. Now key in the two digit number on the tv screen at remote address for tv2. Then press the pound sign and the SAT button will flash three times then press the record button and the TV2 icon should flash. Now you can cancell out of the screen on tv one and try the remote at the TV2 location. I believe this will fix your issue if not let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
