Question about DISH Network IR Remote Control
I have a 510 receiver and just received a new remote for it. The remote is 6.3 # 148786. I spent and hour with dish network tech support and cant get it to work. Can you help me please?
The 6.3 remote has a blue number two key tab on it when it is shipped from the warehouse. If you remove the battery lid you will be able to remove the tab by pulling it out.You will need the other keys that should have come with the remote and use the black colored uhf key and insert it into the remote and put battery cover back on. Ensure the UHF antenna on the back of the receiver is tight and in the upright position. Now turn the TV on and using the buttons on the receiver press menu twice. This should bring you to the system info screen. There will be a remote address toward the bottom of the screen and usually this number is 1. Now take the new remote and press and hold the clear SAT button on top until all the lights across the top illuminate. Now release and key in 01 and press the pound key. The SAT button should flash three times. Press the record button and noe try to navigate the highlight to the done or cancel option using the left and right key. You should now have control of the receiver if not the antenna port which receives the commands could be faulty. If you were successful with the remote remember you will also need to program it to the TV itself to enable you to turn the TV on and off and control the volume with the remote. The FINAL issue that may be causing your issue is that the part number you gave does not match a 6.3 remote. A 6.0 WILL NOT WORK WITH THE 510 EVEN IF YOU DO ALL OF THE ABOVE as I tried it the other night to verify the accuracy of information that is put out internally. I hope this resolves your issue and if you need help programming the remote to the TV itself please let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
