"no signal" means the unit thinks it is not getting signal from the dish. try reset by holding down the power button on the unit for up to 10 seconds. it will acquire sat and then load guide. this makes the unit "think" again. also check to be sure the cable fitting "stinger" is straight. no signal could also mean the tv or vcr is off channel or is not connected or inputted properly with the original tv remote.

Doesn't receive signal from remote control


if it works intermittenly then the remote dosent need reprogrammed. SOoooo....

line of site comes to mind. your box needs to see what your remote shoots out. sometimes something ends up in front of the reciever spot on the cable box (FYI: a flashlight at the right angle can help find the sweet spot on most devices)

maybe the dvr is going bad watch EVERYTHING you want to see one last time and have it swapped (like death, you can't take anything with you)

good luck (I hope its just a line of sight problem)

On tv 2 the remote controls the volume and power but will not change channels or do anything else. went to system info in tv 1, pressed sat and power. This did not help. Batteries are new.


Hey, Jane!

I can definitely help you with this. Go to the System Info screen like before, but on the TV2 remote press the 'Record button and see if the number in 'Secondary Remote Address' changes. If it doesn't, let me know here, and I will assist you in programming it!

The TV stopped responding to the remote control


tried with reset doesn't work, ok it could be the IR sensor at the front panel of the tv doesn't work. but before you replace it you need to ensure if your remote controller is working. have you tried to check the remote with camera trick just to know if the remote controller is sending light to the IR sensor of the tv.

My control remote doesn't work


Hi, first if remote doesn't work, try new batteries......

If new batteries did not fix the problem, then it means the problem is either from the remote or the TV.

Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.

If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.

TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.

The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.

So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.

I JUST PUT BATTERIES IN THE REMOTE AND IT WILL NOT RECIEVE THE ORDER FROM THE RMOTE WHAT SHOULD I DO THE T.V. BRAND IS ESA


To troubleshoot the remote control problem, follow this step. 1. Check the battery (new if possible) 2. Get a ordinary radio then scan the radio to no signal frequency...just a buzz song will be okay. 3. Try to point your remote control in front of your radio, then press any keys (numbers or anything) 4. If you heard some sound to the radio while pressing the keys 4.a Your remote control is working fine. 5. If you did not heard anything while pressing the keys 5.a Your remote control is not working. You need to replace it or just buy a universal remote control (cheapest way to do).
Thanks. Hope this helps.

Remote will not work for t.v or dish reciever but batteries are good, lights still work but will not turn tv on or off or turn reciever on or off or even get a guide menu. please help

Is this a new remote or the existing one? I have provided instructions on how to program the remote to your TV and to readdress the remote to your receiver. Select the model of the receiver you have, click on the link and the just follow the directions. The bottom portion of the page has links for TV codes to program the remote to your TV. If this doesn't work, you may need a new remote. I hope this helps.

Direc TV remote won't work Receiver


call directv and they will walk ya thru reporgramming remote for reciever. or goto menu, setup, remote, then follow on screen instructions. i cant give u the exact instructions cause every reciever is a bit different and its different if one remote operates two directv recievers. ( like a bar would do to operate two tvs with one remote)

My remote control for my t.v


Make sure the batteries are in correct alot of people make that mistake . There should be a diagram inside the cover or under where the batteries go. Also try streching the springs out a bit and clean them with a alcohol pad. Also make sure that there isn't anything blocking the little window/reciever on the tv. If that dont work you may have to replace the remote.
