I have a remote that only works to control the t.v but when i try to turn on the cable it doesn't work at all


Stacy,

We can definitely look into re-addressing the remote for you. Verify the remote is in SAT mode by pressing the SAT button for me. Once that's done, try changing the channels.

If the problem continues, follow the steps below to program the remote! Let me know if it continues after that.

Addressing Remote to Receiver:

1.) Go to System Info screen.
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.
6.) Test remote and see if it works.

Dish remote stays in vcr mode


Hi, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. I would be happy to help with any remote issues you're experiencing. Normally if the remote is stuck on VCR mode you would need to try replacing the batteries first. Once you have replaced the batteries you are going to want to press and hold down the SAT button until it lights up red and flashes after you release. This should put your remote back in SAT mode. If this does not resolve your issue you may need to readdressing the remote to the receiver. I will list the instruction here for you to do so. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions please let me know!

Instructions for addressing the remote to the receiver
  1. Go to System Info screen.You can do this by either pressing the system info button on the front of the receiver or by pressing the power button once and the channel up button once on the front of the 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. Note: If successful, the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

If a tv is on the right channel and the sat button is not working what do you do


leelehudson

Are you getting a picture on your TV? If so, then try pressing the SAT button on the remote and releasing. See if you can now change channels. If not, then the remote may need to be readdressed to the receiver. I have provided the instructions to readdress the remote.

If you are not getting a picture, that's a totally different issue. Please respond to this site with more information.

Remote: All Other Remotes
  1. Go to System Info screen
  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.

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.
