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?

    I have the same problem. Not even the original Emerson remote will work. It has to be something with the remote sensor on the TV.

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.

How do i control my hitachi tv with my dish remote


In order to control your Hitatchi TV with your dish remote you would need to program it. The codes needed depend upon the model of your receiver, though I can provide some general codes. Below I have provided some codes and a link for more information and the steps to program the remote!

Codes: 585, 638, 665, 668


Addressing Remote to TV:

1.) Press and hold the clear TV button until all mode lights light up.
2.) Release and TV light will be blinking.
3.) Enter code and press #. The TV button should flash 3 times.
4.) Try functions (Volume, Power, etc..) and see if working.
5.) If no function, repeat steps 1-4 with another code.

Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions or you can email me at

I got my dish network to turn off the tv and adjust volume but remote wont turn on the tv

Hi there!! This is Kimberly Escobar with DISH Network, just ran across your post and wanted to provide you with some helpful information to help get your problem resolved. If your remote control is functioning as far as turning the T.V off and the volume, one of the things you may want to check is that the power button is working, you can verify this by trying to turn on and off the receiver. If it works for the receiver you will need to try to address the remote to your T.V again using different codes. To address a remote to the T.V we use certain codes that integrate to the remote allowing it to function with the T.V. unfortunately we cannot promise the remote will function the T.V completely. You can find more codes at this link here If you need any additional help please free to contact us directly at 1800-333-DISH. Hope this is helpful to you.

If the VCR button lights up when you press the Power button, you are not in the correct mode to operate the TV. If the remote is programmed correctly, when you are in SAT mode, you can press the large RED button to turn your receiver off/on. The RED TV button will turn your TV off/on. I have provided links to program your remote to your TV again. I have also provided codes for your Sanyo TV.

Instructions to program your remote to your TV (begin with step 6):
Here are the TV codes: 590, 683, 589, 542, 652

I hope this helps.

castro_ed387, I am unable to provide you a code as I do not know the remote model, but the steps below will help in programming the remote to the TV, and I included a link on the bottom that has the codes on it.

Program to TV:
1. Turn the Television On
2. Press and hold the gray TV button on top of the remote until all lights turn on.
3. Let go and TV will be blinking, enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
4. Press # and test functionality with the TV
5. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television. If it works press SAT.

As I program my control of dish to a tv sanyo

Hi maria_pal371, I would need to get a better idea of what model remote you have. I would recommend viewing our remote codes found here:

The model # is on the back of the remote at the top, once you have the code(s) you can follow these steps to program the remote:

1. Hold the gray TV button until all lights on top turn on.
2. Let go and while TV is blinking enter the 3-digit code you found and press #.
3. TV should blink a few times and stop. Try volume/power/mute.
4. If everything works hit SAT and you're good to go! If not repeat steps 1-3 with a different code.

Hdtv only the power button work.

What "inputs" are on the back of the TV,
so that you can connect the PlayStation and/or the DVD player?

Is there a "setup" button on the TV itself,
and "up/down" and "left-right" and "select" buttons,
that you can use to tell the TV to accept input from "tuner" or "cable" or "DVD" or "Composite" or "SVGA" sources?

Can you telephone the Dish Network support-desk, and get them to "program" your Dish Network remote-control with the specific settings for your specific brand/model of TV?
