I hope that you got that tv and remote working. But if you haven't, I have some steps that can help you out. If your tv remote is not working, and you want to program your DISH remote to your tv, here are the steps:
Just follow the link I provided below, which will walk you through a power scan. The power scan scan your tv for the code that works with the remote. It sounds tedious, but it's very quick and simple! I hope that it helps!

I have an AVol TV and need the Dish Network remote control codes


Hi, my name is Cheri Torres and I am with DISH Network Customer Service. I tried looking up all of our possible remote codes and I was not able to locate any codes for an AVol TV. Instead of using codes to address your DISH remote to your TV you will need to try a power scan. A power scan will normally find the code that works best for your TV for you. I will list here for you the instructions for performing a power scan. I hope you find this information useful. :)

Instructions for performing a power scan
  1. Turn the Television On.
  2. Press and hold the TV mode button until all mode lights light up red.
  3. Press and release the big red power button once.
  4. Press and release the channel Up Arrow on the remote until the television turns off.
  5. After the television turns off, press and release the pound(#) button once.
  6. Test functionality with the TV.
  7. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.

No,the Dish Network satalite box signals require it own remote for it INFER RED INPUT and INFER RED OUTPUT signals.Call Dish Network customer service ask for a another original Dish Network remote.U pay $5 or $6 dollars a month for the satalite box as rental.They should wave the fee or charge u very little for a another remote.

I got my dish network to turn off the tv and adjust volume but remote wont turn on the tv


Hi there!! This is Kimberly Escobar with DISH Network, just ran across your post and wanted to provide you with some helpful information to help get your problem resolved. If your remote control is functioning as far as turning the T.V off and the volume, one of the things you may want to check is that the power button is working, you can verify this by trying to turn on and off the receiver. If it works for the receiver you will need to try to address the remote to your T.V again using different codes. To address a remote to the T.V we use certain codes that integrate to the remote allowing it to function with the T.V. unfortunately we cannot promise the remote will function the T.V completely. You can find more codes at this link here http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-setup. If you need any additional help please free to contact us directly at 1800-333-DISH. Hope this is helpful to you.

I have bought a brand new lg tv from sams. I suscribe to the dish network. I can program the dish remote control mto turn the lg tv on, but the remote will not adjust the volume ! The dish remote is new...


Hello there!!!!! If your remote is giving you troubles, you can try a power scan, which scans through each code for the tv until you reach the correct one. Just follow the link provided below, and begin the scan. Remember when you are done programming your remote, press the SAT button on the top left of the remote. Hope this helps!!!

Having trouble getting my Dish Universal remote to connect to my Insignia 19" flats screen television. I think it is the silver (ES3189) model remote


traceroberso,

I came across your post. Are you still having problems with your DISH Network remote operating your Insignia TV? If you still are, I have 2 codes you can try to see if it will work on your TV. The codes are: 720, 539. The steps to program the remote to the TV are below.

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.

Have to manually turn on tv when turning on digital converter box


astoner3,

Our dish remotes are compatible with most TV manufacturers. On some older TV, we may not have codes that allow for full functionality for the DISH remote. I have provided the most common codes to work with the Sharp TV. The codes are: 628, 605, 740, 591, and 606. I have also provided instructions on programming the remote to the TV.

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.

You need to contact dish network to get a manual for remote control. Each TV brand has one or more codes that will allow you to power TV on or off, and adjust volume. Since Dish Network uses a specific remote to operate that particular receiver you will need them to either send out a technician to program for your TV, or send you a new remote that has a manual. Allowing you to do the setup yourself..Good Luck
