    I reset the system as you suggested.  It didn't help.  I'm now waiting for another remote from Dish.  Thanks for your help.

I suggest you have Dish send you another remote as the one you have appears to faulty but if you can get to the menu sucessfully you can try to reset the system to factory defauult settings and see if that resolved the issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Want to no how set remote to a polaroid tv

You must read the instruction booklet that came with your Dish network receiver or the manual that came with the remote. Try going to replacement remotes and searching for the remote control model to pull up all the info about it. If they have the manual it will show for download.

I pushed the dish button an the screen went black

Hello leslie_poo_1. My name is Michael Hurst with DISH Network. I see that when you press select you get a black screen. Try to perform a hard reset by unplugging the receiver from power outlet for 10 seconds then plug it back in. If you still have a black screen press the menu button on your remote. Press Menu, 6, 1, 1, select check switch and then test. Once the test is done exit out of all the menu screens.

T.v shows channel 3, doesn't show dish sign

First ensure the receiver is connected to the TV via coaxial cable and that the receiver is powered on. If the receiver is connected via composite cables yellow/white/red you will have to change the input on the TV to match the name of the port that it is connected to on the TV. An example of this would be video 1. Some TVs do not have an input aka source button on the set itself and is only located on the original remote. Others you may need to go through the menu to access them and finally some are incorporated into the scrolling of the channels from lowest to highest etc. You may also be able to use the tv/video button on the dish remote but this is not always possible.
Thanks for using Fix Ya. I hope this assists you.

Need Dish DVR ViP722 remote code.

If you are looking to have the Dish remote operate your TV, just do a random search for your tv. First, hold down the tv button on the dish remote until all the rest of the light up. Next press the tvpower button on the dish remote. Next, press the channel up button (this is the up arrow button) until the set turns off. When it does turn off, press the # key at the bottom right of the remote. The tv button will light and flash twice. That's it. Your done. Hope this helps.

Cannot control Vip222 with sling classic

I have read elsewhere that Slingboxes required the Dish Network receivers to be set to Primary Remote Address 1.

To try a fix:

Using the Dish Network Remote Control -
1. Press menu 2 times to get to system info page
2. In the system info page the Primary Remote Address is in a white box (bubble) followed by a Green TV (1)symbol that says IR and indicates the channel to which remote control 1 is configured.

If the Primary Remote Address of your Dish VIP722 Remote control 1 is not set to channel 1, here is how to change it:

1. While displaying the system info page, press and hold the SAT button on your dish network remote until all other modes are flashing, about 3 seconds.
2. then press the '1' button on the numeric pad of your dish remote
3. then press the '#' button on the numeric pad of the dish remote
4. then press the 'record' button (red dot button - stores setting)
5. At this point you should see a number 1 in front of the primary remote address on the dish system info page

Ensure you enter the corresponding IR code into your slingbox remote control per the instructions in the Slingbox documentation.

Menu button won't work

The codes that are provided to operate the tv from a Dish remote will not offer full functionality with most TV's. The menu button on the Dish remote even when able to bring up the menu screen on TV's is unable to navigate the menu screen due to the complexity of the TV's set up. The newest receiver that Dish has on the market is the 222k which is a dual tuner/two room HD receiver without DVR that has LEARNING REMOTES that might be able to accomplish the goal you are trying to obtain. I hope this answers your question and remember to keep the original TV remote in a safe place so that you can use other functions on your TV as well. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can be of further assistance.
