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

Dish network changed to snow when I tried to change station to channel 13. I pressed "power" for 5 seconds with no change.


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service here. It sounds like when you try to change channels with your remote, it is changing the channels on your TV and not your Satellite Receiver. In the top left corner of the Dish Network remote is an SAT button. When you try to change channels on the Satellite receiver this button should be lighting up. If the TV button lights up, it means the remote is working the TV. Press and release the "SAT" button after you have the picture back on the TV and it should work normally. I hope this resolves your remote issue!

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.

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!

What channel should I turn my tv to? i have dish


If you have Dish, your remote should have a selection for TV/VIDEO located just under the SAT and TV buttons on the upper left of the remote. Push the TV button, push the TV/VIDEO button, and you should be able to reset the TV to Satellite.

After you've reset the TV, remember to push the SAT button on the upper left to allow your remote to access the satellite.

Need Dish DVR ViP722 remote code.


If you are looking to have the Dish remote operate your TV, just do a random search for your tv. First, hold down the tv button on the dish remote until all the rest of the light up. Next press the tvpower button on the dish remote. Next, press the channel up button (this is the up arrow button) until the set turns off. When it does turn off, press the # key at the bottom right of the remote. The tv button will light and flash twice. That's it. Your done. Hope this helps.

Tv on/off and volumn don't work on my dish remote


Hello,

If you are trying to use a Dish Network remote control, then you are probably out of luck. Most Dish remotes do not have remote codes for TV/DVD or TV/VCR combos. There are just too many codes out there to put into one remote control. I'm sure they tried to walk you through a code search (hold the TV button down, etc.), so if it didn't show up then, then you are probably stuck with using two remotes or adjusting manually.

If they didn't try a code search, then try this:

Turn the TV on manually. Then, press and hold the clear TV button at the top until all the buttons at the top turn red, then release. Press and release the TV power button (the smaller red power button), and press the channel up button. Repeatedly press and release the channel up button about once a second until the TV turns off by itself, then press and release the # button at the bottom right hand corner of the remote, and the TV button will flash 3 times, confirming that it took the code. Press and release the clear SAT button at the top left, and then you should be good to go.
If the TV never turns off during the code search, and the TV button at the top of the remote flashes a bunch of times everytime you press channel up, then there are no more remote codes. The remote does not have the code for your TV.

Hope this helps you.
