Are you getting a picture on your TV? If so, then try pressing the SAT button on the remote and releasing. See if you can now change channels. If not, then the remote may need to be readdressed to the receiver. I have provided the instructions to readdress the remote.

If you are not getting a picture, that's a totally different issue. Please respond to this site with more information.

Remote: All Other Remotes

  1. Go to System Info screen
  2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  4. Press the pound (#) button
  5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

Dish network changed to snow when I tried to change station to channel 13. I pressed "power" for 5 seconds with no change.


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service here. It sounds like when you try to change channels with your remote, it is changing the channels on your TV and not your Satellite Receiver. In the top left corner of the Dish Network remote is an SAT button. When you try to change channels on the Satellite receiver this button should be lighting up. If the TV button lights up, it means the remote is working the TV. Press and release the "SAT" button after you have the picture back on the TV and it should work normally. I hope this resolves your remote issue!

We have Toshiba Regza 52XV645U. We have dish network hd channels and ever since hd channels were installed after tv plays for few hours the speakers get a funny sounds like channel sound is scrambling. It...


This sounds like what may be causing it is the cable going from the tv to the receiver box. If it is only happening on the sat channels, you know that it's not the tv. I would replace the cable, if that does not work, then it may be that the receiver needs to be replaced.

What channel should I turn my tv to? i have dish


If you have Dish, your remote should have a selection for TV/VIDEO located just under the SAT and TV buttons on the upper left of the remote. Push the TV button, push the TV/VIDEO button, and you should be able to reset the TV to Satellite.

After you've reset the TV, remember to push the SAT button on the upper left to allow your remote to access the satellite.

Volume not working for different tele


Hold down TV button at top of remote until other buttons on top row light up. Press red power (big one) then press channel up repeatedly until tv turns off. Press # button on bottom right to set the new code.
It might only take a few channel ups before you find the right code but it may take a hundred. If you go thru all of the codes in the remote the tv button will start flashing quickly to indicate you have done so.
When you are all finished just remember to press and release the sat button up top to control the Dish receiver once again.
Here are some common brand name tv codes also. If yours is here its easier to enter the code. Hold down the tv button until all others light up then enter the three digit code and press #.

SAT button it does not work, you can not turn on or off the DISH


First press the SAT button at the top left hand side of the remote and release. Now try changing channels. If this did not work press the menu button twice on the receiver. It will usually be behind a pop open door on the right of the receiver. I f your receiver does not have these buttons you can access the system info screen by pressing the power button on the receiver while holding down the arrow left or right key.
Once you have come to the SYSTEM INFO SCREEN press and hold the SAT button on the top left side of the remote until all lights across the top light up. Then key in a two digit number e.g. 01-16 and press the #key. then press the record button and the remote address for the location you are trying to control should change to the number you keyed in. If this is the second location tv that was giving you issues exit out of all the screens on the receiver location tv and go to the other location and try the remote. If it is the tv where the receiver is located then you should now be able to use the remote to maneuver the yellow cursor across the screen. If you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
