Hello hogan_cindy, my name is Michael Hurst with DISHNetwork. I see that you replaced the batteries in your remote and now you'renot able to change the channels. Sounds like the remote needs to be programmedto the receiver. You would have to access the menu of the receiver. There are 2ways to access the menu. You can pull the smart card out of the receiver andleave it out until System Information comes on the TV screen. The otheroption that you have is to power the receiver off and then press the up channelbutton and System Information will come on the screen. Once you havethis on the screen press and hold the Sat button on the remote until all thelights on the top of the remote turn red. Release the Sat button andpick a number from 1-15. Then press the # button and then the recordbutton (located above number 3). The number in the Remote Address shouldchange. If the Remote Address doesn't change unplug the receiver for 10 secondsfrom power outlet and plug it back in. Do the same steps. Once the remote isprogrammed then exit out of the menu screens.

My new remote that came with the tv does not allow me to change channels, but my dish remote still allows me to change channels


Your dish remote is the only one that is compatible with the dish receiver. You're going to have to program all the functions you want to use to the dish remote. They are usually set up for all the normal functions, volume, power, dvr etc.

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.

If this hasn't been resolved, I do have some steps that will help you out. The link below will walk you through a power scan, which will program the remote to the tv. At that point, you will be able to change the channels on the tv with the remote.

I have provided instructions on how to program the remote to your TV. I have also provided codes for your TV brand.

Remotes: Basic (Television Only)
  1. Turn the Television On
  2. Press and Hold the TV Power button for three seconds until the LED flashes
  3. Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
  4. Press OK. Note: The LED will flash three times.
  5. Test functionality with the TV
  6. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.
The codes are as follow: 720, 220, 748, 721 (694 only has a 2% success rate). I hope this helps.

Need code for Dynex/DX-l42-10A for Dish Network


I know you've probably figured this out by now, since you posted last May, but I figured I would post the solution, since I just found it, and someone else may want to know.
I bought one of these sets the day after Christmas 2009, and finally figured out the code that works with the Dish Network 5.4 IR remote.
I did a Code Scan, and found that the code that works is 721. In the Dish Network listing, this is listed as the third code for Sansui.

Hope someone finds this useful, even if it's too late for you.
