    I also would like to open the remote controll device. I only have one button that will not work 80% of the time. I might just be a dirty contact that could easily be fixed without replacing the remote. Thanks!

I do not suggest opening your remote. If you call dishnetwork and inform them no lights are illuminating with new batteries, they will replace the remote. Pricing may depend on your accounts warranty.

Hello, this is Becki Barned, with DISH Network customer service. For this issue, since you have already replaced the remote and have the 5 foot coax cable on the antenna, then at this point, we would want to send a tech out for you. The technician can determine if this is an issue with the receiver box, or can set up a back feed for you. I can help you out with this issue further. You can e-mail me at becki.barned@dishnetwork.com .

jholsinger1,

It sounds like this is TV 1 that you are having this problem with the remote, is that correct? What has changed from when the remote was working till now? Was anything moved like the TV/receiver? You may have some type of interference with the UHF signal. Without getting more specific information, I'm generalizing the trouble shooting steps. Would you clarify if it's TV 1 or TV2. Please post to this site and I will respond back to you.

My dish remote for my new vizio tv only works part-time. the volume and power work, but the guide button only works less than half the time and only after holding it down for 5 seconds. i have exchanged...


judileighahl,

If you have replaced batteries and had a new remote sent out to you, either the Vizio TV is emitting an IR signal that is interfering with the remote IR signal to the receiver. To test if the TV is emitting interference, is it possible for you to turn the receiver in a direction away from the TV and see if the remote will work? If it does work after moving the receiver, that indicates interference from the TV. If it doesn't change the situation, you might check for other interference from other components (florescent lights, etc.). I hope this helps.

Remote lights up as if it is going to work however it won't do anything batteries are new, so that is not an issue almost seems like it needs to be re programmed or something my 2 year old could have...


Without knowing the exact issue I can only provide general information. Since it seems like it may be a satellite address problem, I can definitely help with readdressing the remote.

To program remote to Receiver:
1. Access System Information from main receiver.
2. Note the number on the bottom by Primary Remote Address/Secondary Remote Address.
3. Hold SAT until all lights turn on on top of the remote.
4. Enter a number between 1-15 and press #.
5. Press record 3 times after it finishes blinking and the number by remote address should change.

Remote tv on & off won't work


I do hope that this has been resolved. If not, I have enclosed some steps for you to follow. You will want to follow the link below, which will walk you through a power scan. A power scan will scan your tv for the code that works with the remote. I hope that this helps.

My dish network remote has an issue it take me 10 mins to get the remote to change chanels i have to keep pressing the button for allmost 10 minutes before it well work the remote has fresh batteries


drackul69, I am unsure what type of TV you have, but some LCD TV's generate heat while they power on and a remote on IR will not work until the TV warms which can take 5-20 minutes. If you have a LCD TV that may be a cause for the problem. If so a UHF remote for TV1 will fix that.

Dish network remote to run RCA DVD player


I had rca remote that did not recieve ir signals but rf signals instead. Check online with rca or in owners manual for what type of signal factory remote sends. The dvd player I had was 5 dvd and that was the case. Dish might have an option like direct tv where you can program rf signals as well. Call dish network support or look online
