Sounds similar to the remote that came with my dish network vip-722. It took a bit of force to mine apart. There are tiny tabs along the side of the remote. I was able to force them up with a flat head screw driver.

How do I change batteries?

To whom it may concern,

Remove the back panel on the remote, remove the dead batteries and install new ones in the same orientation that you found the previous ones in. Your remote is now ready to go.

Best of luck

How to take apart Sony NSGMR1 remote control

You may have the diode loose or a crystal some use on the board.

look aside from back in bottom of battery compartment for more screws.

Many of the remotes even with screws are snapped together--look at the seam in the side around the remote--start at the bottom on one side and probe with a small screwdriver--insert into the seam and slide to try to free the first locking tab--pull on it(the case halves) and slide the driver slowly along the seam to unsnap all the tabs.

You may cause some slight chips or scratches in the process and that is normal--as you get the tabs released pull up on cover until the unit comes open.

Inside there are generally the two cover sides, the board, and the rubber like mat with all the buttons.

Take your time as only other choice is to buy a new remote which I suspect will be expensive.

Let me know if get it apart or have problems doing this.

Took apart remote and little white tab fell off. how do i reposition it


Are you still having problems with your remote? If so, there is a tab at the bottom of the remote that send a signal to the receiver box. This tab slides in at the bottom of the remote. Removing the battery cover will give you access to the area where the tab snaps in. I hope this helps.

My UHF por controller is not running my secondary tv.


If none of the lights light up on the top of the remote when you press/release Select, check to make sure the batteries are placed correctly in the remote. If they are, you may need to readdress the remote to the receiver. I have provided instructions on how to program the remote to your receiver. I hope this helps.

insert wide flat blade (such as a wide flat bladed screw driver) into seam along one side. Twist carefully until seam starts to prise apart - carry on until you hear the "crack" of the press-tabs coming apart and repeat along the the length of the seam until you can carefully pull it apart.

Not working. Lights don't come on. Have replaced

This is usually a defective remote and will usually drain new batteries in days. Have a replacement sent to you by Dish. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

DISH Remote burning through batteries!!

most likely there is a button on the remote that is stuck on. try moving all the buttons to see if they "feel" stuck. if not then take the remote apart and clean the contact pad bottoms and the surface of the board with rubbing alchohol. good luck!
