MY REMOTE WILL NOT CHANGE CHANNELS ONLY TURNS TV ON OR OFF

MY REMOTE WILL ONLY TURN MY AOC FLAT SCREEN TV ON AND OFF NO OTHER BUTTONS WORK. CHANGING CHANNELS ETC. ANY SUGGESTIONS? I programmed my Motorola HD/DVR box for my 42" Viore TV using the only code that did anything (10300) and though it will turn the TV on and off now, that is all it will do. I have to still use the TV's remote to adjust the volume.

    We have the same problem. We've been through two boxes and three remotes. The remotes have been reprogrammed many times and revert to the same problem shortly after the tech leaves.Also we have a break in the sound every few minutes. I'm sure these problems are related, but right now HD isn't worth this hassle.

After much trial and error, we discovered a temporary fix. We taped a 3 x 5 index card to the front of the box directly to the right of the time/ channel number. The remote will change both the channels and the sound level with this "fix." Could there be some kind of emission coming from the box that interferes with the remote? Maybe Motorola could put a more opaque front on the box.

How to change input on tv without a remote


Which TV do you have? Some will have an Input or Source button on the front panel. A few will have an option to change the source from the menu. Both of these options require the front panel lock to be inactive.

A few older TVs allowed you to find the A/V input by pressing Channel Down on the front panel buttons until you passed channel 2 (or Channel Up until you nearly reached Channel 2). This option wouldn't work if the A/V inputs had been deleted when someone minimized going through unused channels.

If the Source or Input button was only available on the remote, you will need a universal remote that includes this feature. These cost a bit more than the lowest end remotes. Then you will have to try all of the codes to find the one that makes the Source button work with your TV. (Several codes may work for On/Off but not the change input.) The Universal remotes that can be programmed from a computer (USB connection) will be the easiest to set up. Remotes.com may have a replacement original or substitute remote for your TV that should work for all of the TV functions.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the TV make and model for specific options for your particular TV.

MY dish remote is installed with the dish receiver. My dish remote though is not changing the channels. I already changed the batteries and it turned out to not be that. So what do I do?


Tierra_bush,

It's possible the remote may just need to be readdressed to the receiver. I've listed the steps below:

Addressing remote
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.
4.) Press the pound (#) button.
5.) Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
6.) Try the remote and see if it is working.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Dish network changed to snow when I tried to change station to channel 13. I pressed "power" for 5 seconds with no change.


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service here. It sounds like when you try to change channels with your remote, it is changing the channels on your TV and not your Satellite Receiver. In the top left corner of the Dish Network remote is an SAT button. When you try to change channels on the Satellite receiver this button should be lighting up. If the TV button lights up, it means the remote is working the TV. Press and release the "SAT" button after you have the picture back on the TV and it should work normally. I hope this resolves your remote issue!

Cannot access channel 73 on TV2


If you are unable to access the TV menu using the buttons on the TV itself it is possible you can with the TV2 remote if it still controls the volume etc. for this TV. If it doe not you will need to find a code for your set in the manual for the receiver or you can go to the following link to find that info as well.http://tech.dishnetwork.com/departmental_content/TechPortal/content/tech/receiver/625.shtml
Assuming you have control of the volume still press the small TV button on the top left of the remote. Now press the menu button and you may be able to access the TV's menu. If so you need to run a channel scan/auto program the TV. You may need to use the buttons on the TV still to maneuver through the menu.
If you are still unable to access the menu you may need to purchase a universal to access the menu.

One of our TV's was being accessed by someone in the neiborhood. I found in the manual how to change the remote code. After doing this the TV is locked on one channel. I did reboot. The remote is working...


Hi! I will be more than glad to assist you in this concern. Lets Isolate the problem, press 1st the sat button once on the remote that is giving you a problem. the sat button should light up and check if you could pull up the guide or can change the channels. if there is still no response, bring with you the remote conrtol that is giving you a problem on tv1, turn on the tv and it should show a picture, go to the fron tpanel of the receiver and press the power button once to turn off the green light, once its off, the tv will go into a black or snowy screen, press the up button on the front panel of the receiver until it shows the system information. look for the primary and secondary remote address, ex, primary remote address is 1 on the white box and 1 on the green box, secondary remote address is 2 on the white box and 2 on the blue box, how to reprogram the remote, press and hold the sat button on the remote that is giving you a problem and wait until all lights lit up, once it lit up release it and press any number from 1 to 15, but lets choose 9, then press the pound button (#) that is under number 9, once you press pound button, the sat button should flash 3 times, then after it flash, press the record button, that is under the cancel or view tv button., you will notice that the secondary remote address was change from 2 to 9. to save the setting, get the remote1, select done on the screen and it will show a black or snowy screen. to check the remote 2 if it works, press the sat button once and the the big red power butto, the blue light should turn on if there is no blue light but there is, the blue light will turn off, then before you go to the tv2 location make sure that blue light is on and then check on the tv2 location if you could change the channels now. just incase that the problem is still there, check the remote antena on the back of the receiver, make sure that its on the upright position to broadcast the uhf signal properly.. that should fix the problem. if just incase the problem still exist, call 1800-333-3474 ask for a replacement of the remote..pls feel free to get in touch..if you have any query
