Check that the connection where the dish box is connected to the TV is the selected input on your TV.

You should have either a component connection (5 cables) or HDMI (1 cable) connecting the dish box to your TV. The VX37 has two component inputs and two HDMI inputs (if I remember correctly). Use the INPUT button on your remote to select the correct input.

Once you confirm this and still have problems, post a response and I will follow-up.

Dish network Blue screen No "Signal


Hi john harrison!

A blue screen with "No Signal" is usually related to a video problem. The TV may be getting changed off the correct input/channel, or the video cable might be going bad.

If you have a spare, I would recommend a different cable and seeing if that fixes the problem. If it continues, verify the input/channel your TV is on when it receives a picture and if it goes out try putting it back on that input/channel.

If problems still continue I would be happy to review additional options with you. You can reach me here or at thomas.faust@dish.com

My TV randomly gets a blue screen with a no signal message. Exactly like the TV was turned on without my Dish Network box turned on. I thought the Dish box was going out so I replaced it. It still did the...


That can certainly be a frustrating issue!! Because you have already replaced the box, and you are getting the same thing, it is not a receiver issue. If you are able to temporarily get the TV to stay ona fter you turn it off and then back on, it could be a TV issue.
If your receiver and TV are plugged into a surge protector, try plugging them directly to the wall. Another cause of this issue could be your grounding for the DISH Network system, meaning that a tech may need to come out and inspect that. Feel free to send me an email if you continue to have issues!

bestone890,

Go into the Main Menu. From there go to System Setup (6) -> HDTV Setup (8). Make TV Type 1080i and Aspect Ratio 16x9 and select Done. Your picture should now be showing a HD picture.

Our new vizio tv is hooked up just like our old tv, (satellite provider being dish network) and it says no signal with a blue screen


Hello. This is usually an easy issue to fix. To get the DISH Network back on the screen, i have included a few steps:

If you are at TV1, where the receiver box is located, the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4. Depending on the cable that is running between the receiver and the tv, the tv may need to be on an input, such as video 1 or 2. If you are at the TV2 location, where there is no receiver, then the tv needs to be on channel 60 or 73.


If you are using an HDMI cable, then the TV will need to be on an HDMI input
If you are using Component cables, your TV will need to be on a component input. (Usually Comp 1 or 2)
If you are using RCA cables, then the TV will need to be on a VIDEO input (Usually Video 1 or 2)
If you are using COAX cables, then the tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4 (If you are at TV2, then the TV needs to be on channel 60 or 73)

My vizio tv with new dish network no longer recognizes all my inputs.. can you help


Hi rshowe610,my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I was going over your post and seewhere the Vizio TV is not reading the DISH Network receiver. There are a coupleof things to check first, you will want to make sure all connections are tightand secure. If you still notice the inputs missing from your Menu screen trychanging out the Cord/Cable of the missing input and replace it with anotherconnection and see if it reads it. If you still have an issue with the missinginput please let me know at michael.houston@dishnetwork.com.

Need the codes to program my dish network remote ???


We're happy to help you with getting your DISH Network remote addressed to your TV. We're going to start by pressing and holding the TV button on the top of your remote until all mode button back lights come on, and then release. Use the number buttons to enter the codes for your Vizio TV; here are some of the codes we currently have: 505, 598, 627, 520, and 627. Press the pound (#) button to save the code in your remote. To check that the code works try several different functions on the remote to make sure it will properly operate the TV. Remember that some codes may not be compatible with your equipment. If this is the case, try the other codes listed for your Vizio TV until you find one that is compatible with it.


We hope this helps and thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!
