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.

Help with caller ID history on Dish Network

You DO have to have caller ID service with your phone company for this to work. If you don't, it won't. If you do have it, you need to go into the menu and activate the receiver to use the caller ID. If your problem is something else, you need to elaborate.

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.

Caller ID function does not work.

Turn off your computer off and temporarily remove the DSL filter to see if the Caller ID then works. If that makes no difference you will need to contact the dish company.

Haier TN201AUV 20"

The GE Universal Remote will do the job. I have on and it works for my Haier TN201AUV TV. You can also find a replacement Haier remote on Remote Hound's web site.

On the other side of this I have a Dish Network remote that WILL NOT work. The Dish Network remote does not list any codes for Haier. Dish Network Tech Support could offer no help.

In an attempt to solve the problem myself, I looked on-line at GE's site listing all of the manufacturers' for their remotes and found the identical code that worked for my Haier TV also listed under APEX TV's. The Dish Remote lists (11) APEX TV codes. Ironically, NONE OF THEM WORK!

I'm stuck with using both remotes... and that's BULL$H!T
