Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Call direct tv and ask for a reset. When you do not use your receiver leave it on and connecetd or it will not receive updates and will forget what it once knew. Actually I think you can use the automated system and use (I think...not sure) code 712 to reset all your receivers with out waiting for help.

Usually in most cases the tv remote will run the dish receiver properly. Try getting your dish receiver remote to work the tv, by typing codes for that model number of the remote.

Maybe you are doing something wrong. Have a friend try to do it and see what happens.

Universals leave lots to be desired and you might just have to get an original OEM unit.

Lightning Damage


There are millions upon millions of electronics that could have been fried.  If you wanted to try and frankenstein with other broken receivers from ebay you might be able to fix it.   Also check to make sure there aren't any fuses and I recommend a surge protector.
