which Dish Network system do u have. If it is the Hopper they program a little easier that the others. but if you have anything other than the hopper u do this. #1 turn onTV,#1 take Dish Remote,#3 press and hold down the TV button on top of the remote, hold it till all four lights light up.#4 press the small red TV button,# now press and click the channel Up or Down , do this one click at a time , (do not just press and hold ) this may take 200 clicks so don't give up. #5 when the TV goes off u quickly press the #(pound button) located on the bottom right of the remote. the TV button on top should flash 3 times. Now try to turn the TV back on.Ok now if you are clicking the channel button too fast and the TV turns off and u pass it up no sweat,,just hit the # button anyway.. and start from the beginning again, but this time use the OTHER channel button the TV should turn off within a couple of clicks. (that saves you from having to hit the button another 100 tries.. ha good luck
I had a remote button not respond on a universal remote. To fix it I had to take the remote apart and move the rubber sheet that lays on top of the remotes computer board. Play with it until it works. Less complicated then it sounds.
If you have buttons built into your tv, try to access the menu through them. If this works, then it is the specific button on the remote that is not working. To fix this, remove the batteries from the remote, and open the housing using a small phillips screwdriver. Because the contact is dirty on the remote, you will need a circuit board cleaner from radioshack or an online retailer. Occasionally rubbing alcohol will work for this use too. Once the circuit board has been removed from the remote, apply the cleaner to the contact no longer responding and let dry. If possible, test the switch without putting the whole remote back together. This problem is pretty common and this fix should work on the first try. Best of luck.
Well, sounds like they may be changing the source from T.V. to HDMI or component/composit mode which is bassically for a C player or other connected source like a VHS or Xbox etc.
Allthough if this where the case, you should be able to use the remote to change the source back to the T.V. Antenna or cable if you have it.
WHen it goes blank or seems to be off, does anything you do turn it back on without having to unplugg it first?
If not, it could be bad, you will need to try hooking it up some where else for a while and test it without that person there and see if it the T.V. a bad outlet or the person is actually doing something.
If you think the T.V. is bad or faulty, at this early in its life, I would take it back under warranty before trying to fix it yourself.
Sounds like a fault in the remote receive circuit or power supply. ambient electrical noise is getting into the circuit somehere. As it is not a new TV, I would suspect power supply capacitors, as they dry out with heat and age. Probably best to take it to a repair shop that gives free estimates/quotes, as there may be more on its way out and this is the first symptom.
