Question about Emerson EWF2703 27" TV

Open Question

My dishnetwork remote stopped working to turn the TV off and on and Volume.

I have had the same TV and dish for 4 years. Not one thing has changed. Two weeks ago the remote stopped turning the TV off and on and stopped working for the volume. They sent me a new remote and it is no different then the first one. I have been on the phone with them and they said they have done everything they can do. We have tried all the codes and even had the remote search for a code and have had no luck. Any ideas?

SOURCE: remotes not working for tv

You have already diagnosed the problem,the remote receiver on the tv is bad,is rare but it happens but before you call for help try unpluging the tv from the wall for 10 minutes and then plug it back in and try it,sometimes this takes care of the problem,if that does not do it you will need the help of a servicer ,your remotes are working but the receiver is not processing the information.If you are familiar with tv service it should be easy to locate the receiver,sometimes is soldered to the chassis and sometimes is part of the push button assembly and conected to the chassis by wires,if is part of the push button is easier to replace,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and ask for help.

I bought a small sansui tv from walmart, but cannot find out the code to program my Dish network remote to work with it. My Dish book is older and only lists one code (which doesn't work)

I most certainly hope that after all this time, you were able to program your remote! But if you have any questions, haven't gotten it working, or have another tv and remote that you would like to program, I am here to help! The link below is a link to instructions for a power scan. The scan scans all of the codes on the tv until it finds the right one for the remote. It sounds tedious, but it is a quick and simple way to get that remote programmed to the tv. This scan works for every DISH remote, and you can use it on any tv, so if you have a tv in the future that you want to program with the DISH, this will help! It's a very handy thing to know!!!!

How did you get the sylvania tv into game mode with out remote

I had to use a dishnetwork remote that I had lying around. You also may able to program a direct tv remote, replaytv remote or universal remote. I have found that putting it into 'game mode' does not work. You will not be able to change the input without a remote.

Here are the instructions for the dishnetwork remote I was using (may differ slightly from yours):

Sylvania Television codes: 733, 506, 525, 536, 566, 568, 569, 573, 600, 610, 652, 654, 656, 659, 660, 664, 665, 666, 671, 672, 674, 677, 723, 724, 729

1. Verify the remote is a DISH Network remote. Look for the DISH Network logo on the bottom of the remote and Mode buttons or lights at the top. Why?

We have the codes for all DISH Network remotes and would be happy to help you with your DISH Network manufactured remote. Please contact the manufacturer of your remote for further assistance. Detailed instructions may be included in the owners' manual that came with your equipment. If not, there may be a toll-free technical support number listed.

2. Look up the Code(s) for the piece of equipment you are trying to address. If the equipment is not listed or a Power Scan is desired click here.
3. Press and hold the correct Mode button (about six seconds) until all mode button backlights come on, then release.
4. Use the number buttons to enter the three digit number (four digit for AUX mode) corresponding to the equipment. The light will blink off after each digit is entered and then return to a steady light.
5. Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
6. To verify the code works, press the mode button. Then try several different functions for that equipment. Some codes may provide partial function, or respond differently than the button's titled function. Try the other codes listed for that device until you find one that offers more complete functionality.
7. Store the remote code for future use.
8. If the remote still does not operate the device, perform the Power Scan. If still no operation, it may not be compatible with that piece of equipment.
