Hey, Jane!

I can definitely help you with this. Go to the System Info screen like before, but on the TV2 remote press the 'Record button and see if the number in 'Secondary Remote Address' changes. If it doesn't, let me know here, and I will assist you in programming it!

SOURCE: 3.0 IR problem - new batteries in, SAT button stays on

You can check the obvious like ensuring all batteries are oriented correctly or a new set of batteries but when you are done you will more than likely still need a new remote. Call Dish at 1-888-333-3474 and have the CSC send you a new remote. There may or may not be a charge depending on your service plan and when the system was last serviced. thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if you need further assistance.

Your best bet will be to get a replacement remote for this because the remote will soon develop other issues and cause you greater frustration. Why not nip this all in the bud now. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Take off the batteries, open the back or your remote, lift the circuit board, clean the back of the circuit board the one that is painted green with cotton balls slightly damp with rubbing alcohol, and clean the black thingy at the back or your remote pad as well, let dry put it back together and try if it works

Remote will not respond. New batteries installed. I can change channels at receiver, but the remote will not do anything, even though all the led's on the remote will show lite when pushed. 6.4 ir/uhf...


Is the remote for TV 1 or TV 2. If it is for TV 2, the blue tab with the number 2 should already be on the bottom of the remote. If it's for TV 1, you need to remove the blue tab from the bottom of the remote and flip the tab over (should be a green tab with only a green 1 on it). Once you change the tab, see if you can change channels. If you can't, follow the instructions below.

At your TV 1 location on your receiver, press the System Info button to display the System Info on your TV. At the bottom of the screen, you should see Primary and Secondary Remote Addresses. Make a note of the remote addresses. With the new remote, press the record button. If this is the TV 2 remote (blue tab on the bottom), the secondary number may change; if TV 1 remote (green tab on the bottom), the primary address should change. Exit from all the menus on the TV screen till you are back to your TV picture - then try the remote.

If the above steps do not work, try the instructions below to manually program the remote to the receiver.

    1. Go to System Info screen.

Remote on tv 2 is not working, except to turn the tv on and off and volume. Menu or guide will not work.


velvia_w

Since the remote is not changing channels or bringing up your Program Guide, you will need to readdress the remote to your receiver. I have provided instructions on how to do this. Before readdressing the remote, you might check on the receiver if the antenna (on the back of the receiver) is secure and straight up and down, not at an angle. I hope this helps.

  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.

  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.

My remote wont operate my sony TV volume


Here you go. This will work with most all universal remote controls. If you don't have the code do the following:
Automatic Programming
With automatic programming, the remote control tests all the codes available on the Code List and assigns the correct code for the selected device. Although this method can be more time-consuming, it eliminates the need to look up codes and enter them manually.

1. Turn off the device with which you want to use the remote control.

2. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control
(TV, VCR, SAT, DVD, CAB or AUD) until POWER INDICATOR illuminates. It should take a couple of seconds for the light to remain solid. The remote control is in programming mode.

3. Press and release power button. The POWER INDICATOR flashes once and stays on indicating the unit is in Power Scan mode.

4. Press CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down repeatedly until the device turns on.

5. When the device turns on, press OK to store the code.

Note:
• To exit without storing the code, press BACK.
• T he unit will search for the next code or the previous code if you press
CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down after the device turns on. (go slow you need to press OK when the TV turns on) if you mess up turn TV off and start over.
6. Press any other button. If the device responds, the remote control has been programmed. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 2-5.
