Hi Monell56 my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network, with the DISHNetwork remote and replacing the batteries in the remote you will press andrelease the SAT button and press select on the remote. If the SAT button didnot light up the remote will need to be replaced. If the SAT button lights uphere is the link that will help setup the remote.

TV remote won't work after changing batteries

When battery is changed, all the previous settings will be lost from the remote control. You should once again set it to your device, using codes.

Remote will not work for t.v or dish reciever but batteries are good, lights still work but will not turn tv on or off or turn reciever on or off or even get a guide menu. please help


Is this a new remote or the existing one? I have provided instructions on how to program the remote to your TV and to readdress the remote to your receiver. Select the model of the receiver you have, click on the link and the just follow the directions. The bottom portion of the page has links for TV codes to program the remote to your TV. If this doesn't work, you may need a new remote. I hope this helps.

The remote is not working at all, example the lights not turning on and i even try'd changing the batteries still not working. What should i do.


I would first check that the batteries (+) is all pointing down in the remote. If they are all pointing down, then you probably need a new remote. Call 1-800-333-3474, speak with Tech support to get another remote. I hope this helps.

Hello, the remote can sometimes have problems. If you haven't changed the batteries in 60 days, try different batteries, or even try a different brand. Sometimes also, with new remotes, the remotes can be faulty upon arrival. If changing the batteries doesn't help, then at that point, we would probably want to replace the remote again. It has been some time since you posted, but if you have yet to get this resolved, I would be more than happy to take a look into this for you. You can reach me at

Dish network 5.3 IR Remote doesn't work. Tried new batteries, doesn't seem to have power. How do I open it?

I do not suggest opening your remote. If you call dishnetwork and inform them no lights are illuminating with new batteries, they will replace the remote. Pricing may depend on your accounts warranty.
