Go to page 19 of your manual (for the E-Z remote) or here ""
(if you don't have the manual)

or to here "" if you have a different remote.

basically, turn your TV on, then you press the antenna button for about 5 seconds until the TV button lights, then use the channel up/down buttons to find the code (the TV will turn off when you find it) hit the TV button again to turn it back on, then hit mute to set the code! good luck!

I got my dish network to turn off the tv and adjust volume but remote wont turn on the tv

Hi there!! This is Kimberly Escobar with DISH Network, just ran across your post and wanted to provide you with some helpful information to help get your problem resolved. If your remote control is functioning as far as turning the T.V off and the volume, one of the things you may want to check is that the power button is working, you can verify this by trying to turn on and off the receiver. If it works for the receiver you will need to try to address the remote to your T.V again using different codes. To address a remote to the T.V we use certain codes that integrate to the remote allowing it to function with the T.V. unfortunately we cannot promise the remote will function the T.V completely. You can find more codes at this link here If you need any additional help please free to contact us directly at 1800-333-DISH. Hope this is helpful to you.

Have to manually turn on tv when turning on digital converter box


Our dish remotes are compatible with most TV manufacturers. On some older TV, we may not have codes that allow for full functionality for the DISH remote. I have provided the most common codes to work with the Sharp TV. The codes are: 628, 605, 740, 591, and 606. I have also provided instructions on programming the remote to the TV.

Remotes: Basic (Television Only)
  1. Turn the Television On
  2. Press and Hold the TV Power button for three seconds until the LED flashes
  3. Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
  4. Press OK. Note: The LED will flash three times.
  5. Test functionality with the TV
  6. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.

I would like to control my dish network receiver 3100 with my samsung remote


If you are trying to use your Samsung TV remote, it will not work with our DISH receiver. Some universal remotes can be programmed to the receiver but you may not get full functionality with the universal remote. Our remotes are designed to allow for functionality for the TV if programmed to the DISH remote (volume, on/off). I hope this helps.

I put new batteries in and found the code that coincides with my tv. The satellite mode button works fine,(I can get on "guide" and turn the channels) but the tv mode button is not allowing me to turn up...

This is due to the code in the book that is programable to the remote not being the same as your TV's. This is due to manufacter dates of the remotes versus the TVs. You could get a 20.0 remote which is the newest and a learnable remote from dish to serve this purpose.

Thanks for using Fix Ya.

You need to contact dish network to get a manual for remote control. Each TV brand has one or more codes that will allow you to power TV on or off, and adjust volume. Since Dish Network uses a specific remote to operate that particular receiver you will need them to either send out a technician to program for your TV, or send you a new remote that has a manual. Allowing you to do the setup yourself..Good Luck
