Re: dish network

Codes for Apex are 595, 618, 743, 744, 005, 006, 019, 020, 120, 745, and 757.

Codes for Sony tv are 500, 514, 578, 640, 670, 690, and 758.

If these dont work here is what is called a power scan. It will go through all the codes in the remote and find the right code for your tv.

1)hold down tv button next to sat button in top left corner
2) when all buttons illuminate press 500 into remote
3)press pound sign
4)Hello, please help..
5)hold town tv button again.
6)when all buttons illuminate press big red power button
7)press up arrow once a second until tv shuts off
8)press # pound sign
9)try to turn tv back on w/ big red power button
10)if tv doesnt turn back on try again from step 2 but use down arrow instead

To set up caller id you have to enable it on the receiver. Press menu 6-1-2, highlight enable and press select. Highlight done and press select. Press 0 three times. Try calling yourself with a cell phone to see if it works, if not, repost on this thread.

Trying to set DISH remote for an APEX LD4088. need the code please

Hello chiech22,

I noticed your post and see that your DISH remote needs to be programmed to your APEX TV. There are a couple of ways that your remote can be programmed to your TV. One option would be to use the remote code that is for your TV, these codes may vary depending on the model of your remote. The best option for you would be a Power Scan to get your remote programmed to your TV. Here are the steps.

1- While at the TV locations (TV1 or TV2 depending on which key is installed), point the remote at the TV. Press and hold the TV MODE button on the remote until all four MODE buttons at the top of the remote light up.

2- Press the RECEIVER POWER button on the remote.

3- Press the UP ARROW on the remote, about one press every two seconds. Stop as soon as the TV turns off. This process may take several minutes.

4- Press POUND (#) on the remote. The TV MODE button will flash three times.

5- Press TV POWER on the remote to turn on the TV. Press VOLUME on the remote to confirm the remote controls the TV. If this does not work, return to Step 1.

If you need any further assistance let us know. I hope this helps.

I am trying to program my DishTV universal remote to control my Apex DT250A digital tv converter and i cannot find a code that will work. Do you know the correct code to enter into my DishTV remote. Thanks...

Hello this is Nick Franta from DISH. There are a couple of codes you can try. The following link will provide the available codes we have. You would need to hold the SAT button down until the top 4 buttons light up, enter the code, then #. The SAT button should flash 3 times when the code is successful.

Let us know if you need further assistance!

Trying to set up dish network remot to apex dvd player


I'm sorry you are having problems programming your DISH Network remote to your Apex DVD player. I looked through our remote codes but I don't show we have a code for an Apex DVD player. We do have remote codes for an Apex TV. You can run a power scan to see if you can find a code for the DVD player. I have provided the instructions to conduct the power scan below. If you have any other question, please post to this site.
