First press the SAT button at the top left hand side of the remote and release. Now try changing channels. If this did not work press the menu button twice on the receiver. It will usually be behind a pop open door on the right of the receiver. I f your receiver does not have these buttons you can access the system info screen by pressing the power button on the receiver while holding down the arrow left or right key.
Once you have come to the SYSTEM INFO SCREEN press and hold the SAT button on the top left side of the remote until all lights across the top light up. Then key in a two digit number e.g. 01-16 and press the #key. then press the record button and the remote address for the location you are trying to control should change to the number you keyed in. If this is the second location tv that was giving you issues exit out of all the screens on the receiver location tv and go to the other location and try the remote. If it is the tv where the receiver is located then you should now be able to use the remote to maneuver the yellow cursor across the screen. If you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Tv says receiver is not on and do not respond to remote control


Hi Jackiewes928, I apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced. It is my pleasure to assist you today. I understand that the only channel you are currently getting is channel 116 and that your remote is not responding. Do any buttons at the top light up on the remote when you try to change channels? If so, what button lights up in red or green? if any button other the SAT button lights up this means that the remote is not on SAT mode and this would be why is not responding. In order to put the remote in SAT mode press the SAT button for 3 seconds. Once you do this try using the remote. If you need further assistance please feel free to reach me directly at kimberly.escobar@dish.com

If the VCR button lights up when you press the Power button, you are not in the correct mode to operate the TV. If the remote is programmed correctly, when you are in SAT mode, you can press the large RED button to turn your receiver off/on. The RED TV button will turn your TV off/on. I have provided links to program your remote to your TV again. I have also provided codes for your Sanyo TV.

Instructions to program your remote to your TV (begin with step 6):

Here are the TV codes: 590, 683, 589, 542, 652

I hope this helps.

If a tv is on the right channel and the sat button is not working what do you do


leelehudson

Are you getting a picture on your TV? If so, then try pressing the SAT button on the remote and releasing. See if you can now change channels. If not, then the remote may need to be readdressed to the receiver. I have provided the instructions to readdress the remote.

If you are not getting a picture, that's a totally different issue. Please respond to this site with more information.

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.

The tv is jammed. Remote is fine but have pressed the wrong button


It sounds as though you might have just accidentally pressed a button and changed the remote into an incorrect mode for example, tv, or aux modes. This would in fact prevent the remote from successfully working with the DISH Network receiver. If this is in fact the problem, then the remote simply needs to be put into "SAT" mode, once its back in SAT mode you will then be able to change channels, select menu, power receiver on and off, etc. The "SAT" button is labeled & in the upper left hand corner of the remote to put the remote back in satellite mode, please just press that SAT once and then release, the SAT button should briefly light up red & then the light will go out, you should then be able to use the remote again, to ensure remote was successfully changed back to SAT mode, you can press select or any other button you chose & as long as the SAT button lights up when you press another remote control button- then your all set to go & everything should be working once again! I hope this helps -please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!

Can't change the channels


Whenever a remote is not working to change channels thefirst thing to check is the batteries. Even if some buttons on the remote areworking, it is possible that low batteries are the cause of not being able tochange the channel. Once the remote has fresh batteries, you'll want to makesure that the remote is in the correct mode. This can be done simply bypressing the 'SAT' button and it should light up. The next thing to do isre-address the remote to the receiver. First, press the 'system info' button onthe receiver (or access system info through the menu). Once the system infoscreen is showing on the TV press the 'SAT' button once and release then pressthe record button. The remote should then be working with the receiver.

Solid red light


Have about a 30 second window to replace batteries before all codes are lost and when you put in the new batteries it goes into programing mode. Re-enter codes and try it again. Have the same remote and it has happened to me before.
