Hello my name is Michael Hurst with DISH Network. Sounds like your remote may need to be reprogrammed to the DISH receiver. You can press the Menu button on the receiver and that will get you to the System Info screen. Once you have this screen then press and hold Sat button until all the buttons on top of the remote flash red. Let go of the Sat button and pick a number between 1-15. Once the number is selected then press # and then Record. Watch the remote code number on the System Info screen. If this doesn't work then unplug the reciever from power outlet for 10 seconds and perform the step again.

I'm hooked up tp Dish Network an hit wrong button on top for volume and now pic is gone. in lower left corner says no signal., but dish is working, just no picture on screen


Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. It sounds like you are going to need to change your TV back to the proper input or channel. If the TV remote is not working to change the channels you can also use the buttons on the front of the TV. First look for a button listed as either input, TV/video, source or AUX. When you press this button it will start cycling through all the inputs available, make sure to cycle through them slowly because it make take a couple seconds for the picture to come in. If you do not find a picture on any of the inputs you are going to need to try the different channels. Normally for a TV where the receiver box is the TV should be set to channel 3 or 4. Once you have found your DISH Network picture you will want to make sure to push the SAT button on the DISH remote so that it doesn't change the TV channel again. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions or concerns please let me know. Thanks. :)

My dvr freezes. i have picture and sound but unable to change the channel or anything dealing with the dvr. i have to manually push the system info button on the box then select done with the remote. ...


Believe it or not, this could be a simple battery problem in your remote. When my battery is low in my remote, some buttons will work and some not. I'd try replacing the batteries in the remote first. If that doesn't work, I would guess that you need a new remote. Sounds like your DVR works fine manually, so chances are that's not the problem.
Hope this helps.

What channels are you able to receive? When you press the Select button on DISH remote, which light on the top of the remote lights up? The Sat button should light up when you are in satellite mode. If any other button lights up, press and release the Sat button and then try changing channels. If this doesn't work, we may need to troubleshoot with you. Please call us on 1-800-333-3474 and speak with Tech Support. I hope this helps.

Can't change the channels


Whenever a remote is not working to change channels thefirst thing to check is the batteries. Even if some buttons on the remote areworking, it is possible that low batteries are the cause of not being able tochange the channel. Once the remote has fresh batteries, you'll want to makesure that the remote is in the correct mode. This can be done simply bypressing the 'SAT' button and it should light up. The next thing to do isre-address the remote to the receiver. First, press the 'system info' button onthe receiver (or access system info through the menu). Once the system infoscreen is showing on the TV press the 'SAT' button once and release then pressthe record button. The remote should then be working with the receiver.
