Hi there this is Kimberly Escobar with DISH Network. I will be glad to help you by providing you the information that can help you. To program the DISH Network remote with your T.V we usually integrate a code into the remote that works with the brand of your T.V allowing our remote to function with the T.V itself by reading your post you don't mention the brand of your television but that is not a problem there is another way to help program your remote without having to use a code, it is called Power Scan in the Power scan procedure we search for the code that gets the remote to control your T.V. To perform a Power Scan your T.V must be on, you press and hold the T.V button until all the other buttons at the top light up in red. Once they light up in red you enter the number 500, you wait for the top buttons to go off and the you will press and hold once again the T.V button until the buttons light up again once you see them come on you will press the big red Power button on the remote once immediately after you press the big red power button you will press one repeatedly the channel up arrow one time after another until T.V turns off immediately after it goes off press the pound button (#) you should see the T.V button light up 3 times then try turning the T.V back on using the remote it should work. Here is this link http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/power-scan-instructions it shows you the procedures. I hope you find this helpful if you have any questions or need further assistance please contact us directly at 1800-333-DISH thank you.

Switch installation failure


I can understand why that would be frustrating, southbizhemp. I hope this has been resolved, but if not I would be happy to help!

Is there a number on the upper right corner of the message? Is this a replacement receiver, or a brand new one. Are all the cables tightened?

Same Place I got one from, Free DVR and setup with a contract. DirecTV was not as good and more expensive. Better Customer Service with Dish Network and the DVR is awesome, best one I have ever used. I sincerely recommend this system. Check them out.

Will a 7yr old dish receiver work today on dish satillite


With an antenna that is pointed correctly to satellites 110 and 119, the receiver will function, but will not have access to paid channels without authorization from DISH (which you can get by calling 1-800-333-3474). You may have to run a check switch test after connecting to antenna by accessing the menu, system set-up, installation, check switch.

After setting up a new tv, the dish remote will not work with the satellite. what could be the problem?


mbpope

If I understand you correctly, once you installed your new TV, your DISH remote doesn't allow you to change satellite channels. If this is correct, you will need to readdress the remote to the receiver. I have provided a link with these instructions. Included with the link is instructions for programming the remote to your TV.

We recently moved our dish ( we are in an rv) and now we get a signal on one tv only. we have dish network and a 625 DVR. we have moved many times and have never had a problem before. in order to switch...


5shades690,

Are you still having problems with your TV 2 off the 625 receiver? You have a cable off the back of the receiver, TV 2 Home Distribution. That's feeding to your TV 2 location. You might check to make sure it is secure. You can also see if that cable screws into a diplexer if it is being back feed through the satellite cables. These are all potential problem spots, especially since you said it was working before. I hope this helps.

i had this problem using dish network. my dish remote went bad so i got a new one and as soon as i programmed it volume and channel had mind of its own on both the dish remote and the original tv remote. you would hit it once and volume would go to max and vice versa when going down. ended up being the new remote was set on the uhf setting and i had to reset to the ir setting which is a small switch in remote next to batteries and then reset system info in dish receiver. problem went away instantly. both remotes work fine now. took two days to figure out and spent hours on internet looking for solution but no one had one. hope this helps.

Dish Network - Dish 500 Satellite 110 is not being recognized


You will need a DP or Legacy twin or quad, or DPP twin without using an external switch. If you use Legacy Duals, or DP Duals you will need a switch. USUALLY a SW21 is used to combine the signals but you may have a different one in use if at all.

The primary thing to remember when using a switch is that you must use the same type of LNB as switch e.g. Legacy switches with Legacy LNB's and Dish Pro switches with Dish Pro LNB's.

Check your LNB type. Legacy LNB's have only a Dish Network Logo on them, Dish Pro has DP on them and DPP have DP PLUS on them.

One of three things could be the cause:

1. Line of site. Must be clear of all obstructions to ensure adequate signal.

2. You have a faulty switch, or conflicting LNB and switch, or no switch at all.

3 you may have a bad port on the LNB.

As a fail safe check that your mount is level and plumb. You also may have the dish pointed directly at 119. Check the Skew and elevation settings as well. If LOS IS THE ISSUE YOU MAY NEED TO RELOCATE THE DISH OR REMOVE THE OBSTRUCTION.

In some extreme cases microwave towers and High Voltage lines also pose a problem but doubt this is the case for you.
