My remote will not turn the tv on or adjust the sound, it will change channels


First, try pressing TV on the remote, check if that solves the problem. Then press Sat and try the TV power button again. If the remote previously controlled the TV, you lost the code for the TV. If you have your Dish Network manual, check if you wrote down the code when it was originally programmed. Which specific remote/receiver do you have? The programming directions and code lists are available here: http://www.dishnetwork.com/supportsection/remote-setup . You can also scan all of the codes to find the correct one: see http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/power-scan-instructions . Additional remote/receiver manuals are here: http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/manuals .

The direct coding procedure for the Dish remote that I have is: while facing the TV to be controlled (after adjusting the key for TV1/TV2 in a multiple TV system), press and hold TV until all four indicators light up. Then enter the 3 digit code. Press and release the # key. Then see if the code TV powers off when you press Power. Then press Sat and check if the TV power button works. Try additional codes if the TV doesn't respond.

If you recently got a new TV and you tried to program the remote for your TV, your dish remote may not have the code you need. (Most universal remotes are limited to codes for devices released 6 months or more before the remote was programmed.) In that case, you should use the TV remote (and see if it has an option to control the satellite receiver). Alternatively, get a new universal remote that will control all of your devices. (The remotes that can be programmed by USB are the easiest to set up.)

I hope this helps.

I have directv hd service, I recently bought a surround system, can you help me with the connection? My sat. reciever has an hdmi out as do my surround receiver and my tv


It is always helpful if you give model and make of the equipment involved. We can be more specific and accurate that way.
It si a very straight forward connection and you need two HDMI cables.
1) Connect the Satellite Box's HDMI out to the Receivers HDMI In ( any one of the sockets labeled TV/SAT or Video AUX etc ).
2) Connect the Receiver's HDMI out to the TV's HDMI In.
Every thing will work fine except if you switch off the power of some receivers the TV will stop getting HDMI signals ( ie no sound or video if Receiver is Off )

The other way of connecting is to connect the SAT BOX's HDMI cable directly to the TV's HDMI In and if your SAT BOX has a digital Audio out ( Optical or Coaxial ) connect that to the Receivers Digital In. This way you will need only one HDMI cable and one Optic fiber or Coaxial cable. And the advantage is even if the Receiver is Off you can watch video and hear its sound through the TV.

My remote stop communicating with my TV. The buttons light up and SAT button will light up but the remote will not adjust anything on the TV. I replaced the batteries as well. Can you help? jerry Model...


jerry3736,

I'm sorry you are having a problem with your 6.3 remote. You may need to readdress the remote to your receiver. If you have a duo (2 TV receiver) follow the instructions below.
  • Remote:
    1. Go to System Info screen (Go to your TV 1 location and with the TV 1 remote, press the MENU button twice)
    2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.(6.3 remote)
    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.
If this doesn't fix your problem, you may need a new remote. If you have any other questions, please respond to this site.

TV ''Dish'' not working on second TV


check sat in cable, if cracks or breaks in line can cause sfss. also on back of receiver you want to make sure that sat in cable has a little copper wire sticking straight up and that its getting a good connection on the back of the receiver.

Snow on screen and no picture on my DS35510


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, if the previous system/connection works then we should leave that as it is. Coax-Sat Receiver-Coax-DVD Recorder-TV and TV should be Channel 3 (or 4).

On the new Sat Receiver, coax from LNB/Dish to Sat Receiver, yellow, red & white to TV. TV should be set to Video 1 or A/V or Video. There should be no snow, rather if no reception, it should be blue indicating video has muted in the absence of a good signal.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Will not boot- Sits at searching for sat forever and does not get past this point


I had this same issue recently. Unplug the receiver, for approx 30 seconds and after you plug it back in, it should receive the signal and boot up when you turn it on.

TV/SAT Video channel went out - Pioneer VSX516


Double check the video connection cable directly out of the SAT reciver and the video cable out from the Pioneer reciver, as there maybe an intermittant connection in them. If you replace them or sub them for known good ones, and you still have this probem, there is a switching IC inside the pioneer that has to be replaced.
