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.

My dish remote does not work on my new RCA tv. How do I fix that?


Hey Vernon Long,

We would have to program your remote to your RCA TV. I have provided the steps to program the remote below along with a few codes to try. You can view the link provided for more codes if the ones I list don't work!

Link: http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/apps/remotecodes.aspx

Codes: 502, 646, 633

Addressing Remote to TV:

1.) Press and hold the clear TV button until all mode lights light up.
2.) Release and TV light will be blinking.
3.) Enter code and press #. The TV button should flash 3 times.
4.) Try functions (Volume, Power, etc..) and see if working.
5.) If no function, repeat steps 1-4 with another code.

Our remotes aren't guaranteed to work all types of equipment, but if the codes don't work let me know here and I will try some more steps with you!

Which light on the top of the DISH remote lights up when you press the Select button? If any button besides the Sat button lights up, press and release the Sat button, then try the remote. If it still doesn't work, I have provide a link with instructions on how to readdress the remote to your DISH Network receiver. I hope this helps.

My sat button will not work. and i hold it in.


Are you using good batteries? Does the sat button lights up when you press it? If you are using good batteries and the sat button won't light up each time it is pressed, then you will have to call Dish Network for a remote replacement.

That SAT button does on my remote control does not want to light up. All 3 other buttons work.


mannyaflores,

I just want to clarify your problem. It sounds like the SAT button on your remote is not lighting up but the other 3 buttons do light up, is that correct? Are you still able to change channels? When you press the "Select" button on the remote, which button lights up on the remote? Trying pressing and releasing the SAT button to see if it lights up and goes out. If it doesn't, then we will need to replace the remote. Please call 1-800-333-3474 and speak with Technical Support. I hope this helps.

Programme remote to work with sony tv


To program your DISH Network remote to your Sony TV you will simply- press and hold the TV Mode button until all the other mode button back lights illuminate, then release.

-Now while the TV mode button is blinking please enter in the remote code 500 which is the remote code for your Sony TV after entering 500 then press the pound (#) key.

-After pressing the # key on the DISH Network remote, the TV mode button should blink 3 times and then turn off completely. This will mean the programming of the DISH remote to your TV has been completed successfully. While still in TV mode try any of the functions on the remote, such as turning the volume up or down on your TV or attempting to press the power button.

-The DISH Network remote should now be programmed to control your TV.

-If the remote code 500 doesn't program the DISH Network remote successfully you can also try each of the following using the same procedures, 000, 590, 640, 502, 002, or 567.

I hope this resolved the issue for you! Please feel free to contact us if you need any additional assistance.

bdmills04

Have you replaced the batteries in the remote that is not working. If batteries are low, the lights will still light up but will not operate the functions for the remote. When you press and release the SAT button, what happens? If you try to press the SELECT button, does the TV button light or the SAT button? If you have already tried these steps, you may need to readdress the remote to the receiver. I have provided a link with the instructions on readdressing the remote. I hope this helps.

Readdressing the remote, step 5:
