One of two things may be occurring. The first is the remote address on the remote may have changed some how. The way to reset it is to press and hold the SAT button on the top left side of the remote until all lights across the top illuminate. Now key in 01 and press the pound sign on the bottom right of the remote. The SAT button will flash three times. Now try to operate the system using the remote. If you aren't sucessful your remote may be bad or the remote address of the receiver may not be what initially was recorded. Please let me know if you are unsuccessful or sucessful. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Tv says receiver is not on and do not respond to remote control


Hi Jackiewes928, I apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced. It is my pleasure to assist you today. I understand that the only channel you are currently getting is channel 116 and that your remote is not responding. Do any buttons at the top light up on the remote when you try to change channels? If so, what button lights up in red or green? if any button other the SAT button lights up this means that the remote is not on SAT mode and this would be why is not responding. In order to put the remote in SAT mode press the SAT button for 3 seconds. Once you do this try using the remote. If you need further assistance please feel free to reach me directly at kimberly.escobar@dish.com

How do I progam my remote so it works with dish.. it seems to be stuck on only TV setting, not on SAT!


Hello, this is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network. If the remote will not change from "TV" mode to "SAT" mode, try changing the batteries first. If changing the batteries makes no difference and you still can not get the remote to change to "SAT" mode, the remote is defective and needs to be replaced. If it does change to "SAT" mode, but is not working you can try putting system info on your screen, (power off the receiver using front panel button, the press "up" arrow on the front of receiver). When systeminfo is on your screen, on the remote press the "SAT"button one time, and then press the "record" button threetimes. Try pressing select to see if it is now working. You canalso try to hard reset your receiver. To perform a hard reset, you unplugthe receiver from its power outlet, wait 15 seconds, then plug it backin. Try reprogramming the remote again with the first part of theseinstructions. If the remote is still not working, it may be faulty. If this has not been resolved please feel free to email me at matthew.gonzales@dishnetwork.com. Hope this helps!

Hello, this is Nick Franta with DISH.

If you are trying to get the remote programmed to the receiver you can remove the smartcard from the receiver and that will prompt the system info screen. This will allow you to program the remote to the receiver.

If you need the process for programming the remote, here it is:
  1. Go to System Info screen (in this case -- obtain by removing smartcard from receiver)
  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.
Hope this helps!

The tv is jammed. Remote is fine but have pressed the wrong button


It sounds as though you might have just accidentally pressed a button and changed the remote into an incorrect mode for example, tv, or aux modes. This would in fact prevent the remote from successfully working with the DISH Network receiver. If this is in fact the problem, then the remote simply needs to be put into "SAT" mode, once its back in SAT mode you will then be able to change channels, select menu, power receiver on and off, etc. The "SAT" button is labeled & in the upper left hand corner of the remote to put the remote back in satellite mode, please just press that SAT once and then release, the SAT button should briefly light up red & then the light will go out, you should then be able to use the remote again, to ensure remote was successfully changed back to SAT mode, you can press select or any other button you chose & as long as the SAT button lights up when you press another remote control button- then your all set to go & everything should be working once again! I hope this helps -please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!

My tv remote will not allow me to access the satellite


walk_alan,

Are you still having problems with your DISH Network remote? Which light on the remote lights up when you press the select button? If any button besides the SAT button, the remote is not in SAT MODE. Pressing and releasing the SAT button will put the remote in SAT MODE.

If the remote is in SAT MODE and doesn't operate the receive, then the remote may need to be readdressed to the receiver or the remote may need to be replaced. Do you have fresh batteries in the remote? If so, I have provided steps on readdressing the remote to the receiver.

Remote: All Other Remotes
  1. Go to System Info screen(depending on the receiver, you can press the "System Info" button, or pull the smart card out from the receiver till the "System Info" screen appears on the TV)
  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. Note: If successful the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.
I hope this helps.

I pushed some button on my remote and now I can't get my tv to work. Any suggestions?


Guest,

If you are not getting a picture on your TV, check to see which light on the remote lights up when you press the "Select" button. If anything button other than the "Sat" button lights up, the remote is not in satellite mode. Pressing and releasing the "Sat" button on the remote will put the remote back in satellite mode. I hope this helps.
