The power light is on but I can not select a program?!

First check the battery. If you have a laser light remote. Take a camera that has a high resolution .Point it at the device you wont to change. In low light point the camera at the unit you are working on. Look through the eye peace and turn on the remote if you see a red light coming from the remote than it is working fine. I do not know how to check a microwave remote. But you have 1 or2 problems. Your code has been entered wrong.That seems the it most likely to be the code. Because more than one device will not work. Check them also make sure they will work together. It is very unlikely it both units have bad light LED . I have code books if you have not fixed the broblem by now. Email the type of remote you are working with and the unit you are trying to use it on. Good

I have a dual dishnet receiver. I am unable to turn the second side on with my hand control or any other way. I have rebooted and done everything I am supposed to but to no avail. Is my hand control...

If you've tried replacing the batteries in the remote, and have checked to make sure the small antenna on the back of the receiver is attached, then yes, you remote's bad. Contact Dish for troubleshooting and replacement.

Good luck.

MojogiMy GHD1621F2 freeview recorder is frozen on one programme, won't respond to the remote at all (have new batterys) and won't respond to buttons on front. Turning off and on doesn't work...

Hi mojogill,

It sounds like the receiver may be locked up. If the buttons on the front do not work, then try unplugging the receiver for 5 seconds and plug back in then check to see if everything is working fine.

If you need any further assistance with this, feel free to contact me at Thanks!

My dvr freezes. i have picture and sound but unable to change the channel or anything dealing with the dvr. i have to manually push the system info button on the box then select done with the remote. ...

Believe it or not, this could be a simple battery problem in your remote. When my battery is low in my remote, some buttons will work and some not. I'd try replacing the batteries in the remote first. If that doesn't work, I would guess that you need a new remote. Sounds like your DVR works fine manually, so chances are that's not the problem.
Hope this helps.

DISH DVR doesn't respond to remote

  1. If this is a TV2 location take the remote to the location of the DVR.
  2. Open the door on the right side of your receiver.
  3. Press SYS INFO.
  4. Press Record multiple times on your remote.
  5. Exit the screen and see if the remote works, if not replace the batteries and repeat steps 1-4
  6. If the remote still doesnt work, and this is a tv2 location (no receiver in the room with the tv) check the antenna on the back of your receiver, make sure that it is connected tightly and standing straight up.
  7. If none of this works call Dish and ask for a new remote.

Remote control not working

I presume you`ve checked batteies,nothing in the way etc.
The best way is to ring /email your tv company see if they have a code.

If it doesn`t work you could buy a universal remote control. read the below.
