Have you tried to insert the remote codes on there again? Some remotes might reset if you take out the batteries but higher end ones do not since they have an internal back up system.

Try the codes and if that doesnt work then let us know.

Otherwise make sure the press the correct "source" you intend to opperate with it. such as the DVD player on component, or DVR on HDMI, etc... Some times if the wrong source is pushed it wont work. But normally pressing it will fix the problem.

Keep us posted!

On my dish remote for tv 2 sat button stopped working and wont light up. all other buttons work. i have changed batteries but nothing changed. How do i fix this because i dont wan to waste money on an

Kevin rico,

I can definitely check this out with you. Does the SAT button light up when you press any buttons at all? If you press SAT, can you operate the receiver?

If neither of those work then the remote most likely needs to be replaced. If you would like to try that option, just send me an email at and i'll assist you further!

The sat/tv button light gets stuck(as in the light stays on, not the button) and wont let me change channel or do anything i have a remote that says on the back 155679

The easiest solution if you have tried new batteries is to request a replacement remote. This may be done at no cost to you depending on your specific circumstances regarding your account.

Remote wont work

One of two things may be occurring. The first is the remote address on the remote may have changed some how. The way to reset it is to press and hold the SAT button on the top left side of the remote until all lights across the top illuminate. Now key in 01 and press the pound sign on the bottom right of the remote. The SAT button will flash three times. Now try to operate the system using the remote. If you aren't sucessful your remote may be bad or the remote address of the receiver may not be what initially was recorded. Please let me know if you are unsuccessful or sucessful. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
