SOURCE: after programming my new universal remote, the tv keeps changing chanels! wont stop!

you need to program your remote control. take the battaries out. and maually turn the tv on. then hit the source you want to view. for example, I want to control the tv set. I push, code search and hold it then push the source button and then release the source button and then release the code search button. now, aim at the tv and then keep pressing power button till it goes off. when the tv is off, hit return or set or something like that.( every remote has different calling for it but still the same function) it should work. try it and let me know.

SOURCE: Dish 20.0 IR Remote works for awhile then it

I MAY have a solution!! We too have the VIP722 Dish Network receiver. Ours is the "K" model. I called the place where we purchased the TV and they said that the "brightness" on the TV may need to be turned down. He walked me through this, and it worked. The remote WORKS now!! Our TV is a 40" Sony Bravia that we purchased a couple of months ago. Evidently at night, the TV was so bright in the room, it interfered with the Infared Remote control. By turning down "off" brightness detector on the TV, the IR remote was able to send the signal to the receiver. Our TV is on a cabinet and the receiver is directly underneath on a shelf. I hope this solves your problem and anyone else's that may have this problem with the remote.

SOURCE: lg lcd tv keeps changing chanels

Come on, lets try to solve this. Take the batteries out of the remote so it can't interfere and try changing the channels and volume with the buttons on the tv. If this works then someone has spillled something onto the remote and gummed it all out. You simply need to take the remote apart and clean it out. If the buttons on the tv do th same as the remote did then yes, take it back.

Can't get "no signal" off


Hey cthaemar, it sounds like it may have been switched off the correct channel. If it is hooked up with a Coaxial cable it will be on channel 3 or 4, and if it is hooked up with an AV cable then it would be on one of the inputs.

If it's channel 3 or 4 try pressing the gray TV button on the remote and changing the channel. If that doesn't work you may need to use the TV's remote or the TV itself.

If it's on an input press the same gray TV button and then try pressing Input. With this you can also try the TV remote or the TV itself to change those if our remote doesn't change it.

Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns!

My remote doesn't work, it won't change the channels


It sounds like the remote would need to be address to the receiver. This needs to be done from the main TV location, and I have listed the steps below!

Addressing Remote to Receiver:

1.) Go to System Info screen.
2.) Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
3.) Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
4.) Press the pound (#) button.
5.) Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
6.) Test remote and see if works.

Hope that helps!

My new remote that came with the tv does not allow me to change channels, but my dish remote still allows me to change channels


Your dish remote is the only one that is compatible with the dish receiver. You're going to have to program all the functions you want to use to the dish remote. They are usually set up for all the normal functions, volume, power, dvr etc.

Cant make the remote connect to the TV. Got it set up to the TV. Wont change channels and no guide will come up.


Hi there, Tommy Faust with DISH Network Executive Offices here. It sounds like the remote is not programmed to the receiver. I have included steps below to get that programmed.

1. Go to the System Information screen and check the number under Remote Address.
2. Hold SAT until all buttons on top of the remote light up.
3. Let go and while SAT is blinking enter a number between 1-15 on the number pad and press #
4. Press record 3 times and see if the number changed.

No picture just sound thru dish network


There are a few reasons that this could happen. The main reason would be that the tv is on the incorrect channel or input. You will want to make sure that if you are at TV1, the channel is on 3 or 4, and an input if needed, such as VIDEO 1 or 2. If at TV2, the channel needs to be on 60 or 73. Cabling is another reason this could be. You want to make sure that if you are at TV1, all cables going from the receiver to the TV are connected on the back of the receiver at the green TV1 location. For TV2, the cable needs to be connected to the HOME DISTRIBUTION output on the back of the receiver.

Channel keeps changing


If you are using the remote to change channels it sounds like either the front of the remote and/or the receiving “eye” on the TV need to be cleaned, OR (more likely) the button on the remote is sticking. It is actually a button that pushes on a membrane under the entire remote panel. This is generally caused by some sticky liquid (like Coke) getting spilled on it. If you are brave enough, you can take the remote apart and clean it with denatured alcohol. Otherwise you need to replace your remote. If possible borrow a universal remote and see if it still happens. If that doesn’t fix it you have a bad IR receiver and/or a serious internal problem.
