Question about DISH Network IR Remote Control

1 Answer

I have the black Dish Network remote. I pushed the "TV" button at the top to turn on the tv. It then turned red and I was able to push power and the tv was on. Then I pushed the "SAT" button, so I could then push the "guide" botton and get to the channel I wanted. But....the "Sat" button won't turn red! I can't change the channel. We've had this problem before, but we just replaced the remote. Is it a faulty product that wears out quickly or am I being an idiot?

Hello, the remote can sometimes have problems. If you haven't changed the batteries in 60 days, try different batteries, or even try a different brand. Sometimes also, with new remotes, the remotes can be faulty upon arrival. If changing the batteries doesn't help, then at that point, we would probably want to replace the remote again. It has been some time since you posted, but if you have yet to get this resolved, I would be more than happy to take a look into this for you. You can reach me at becki.barned@dishnetwork.com.

If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. One among it has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

How to program remote to dish? 4.4 IR/UHF PRO


Your question is not clear as to whether you want to program the remote to your TV or the DISH receiver. Here are steps for both if this has not been resolved already!


DISH RECEIVER::
1. Go to the room where the receiver is located. With the remote for THAT room press menu twice. (This will be the remote with the Green 1 on the bottom.)
2. Press and release the SAT button on the top left of the remote
3. Press and release the black and red record button 3 times
4. Look that the number next to remote address (secondary Remote address) has changed.
5. If not, start again.


TV::
1. Hold down the Clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Press the red TV POWER button
3. Press and release the up arrow on the remote about once a second until the tv turns off.
4. When it turns off, press the # (Pound) button
5. Try powering the tv on/off, and try the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over at step 1 again.

If the VCR button lights up when you press the Power button, you are not in the correct mode to operate the TV. If the remote is programmed correctly, when you are in SAT mode, you can press the large RED button to turn your receiver off/on. The RED TV button will turn your TV off/on. I have provided links to program your remote to your TV again. I have also provided codes for your Sanyo TV.

Instructions to program your remote to your TV (begin with step 6):

Here are the TV codes: 590, 683, 589, 542, 652

I hope this helps.

I neet to program a dish network universal remote to my ccd tv. how do i do it?


To program the remote to your TV we would need the model # on the back of the remote at the top. To do it yourself you can check out the link provided below to get the codes for TV manufacturers, DVD's, amplifiers, etc.

To program the remote to the TV
1. Turn TV on.
2. Hold TV button on top of remote until all the mode lights turn on.
3. Let go and the TV button will blink. Enter the code found at link below and hit #.
4. Try the use the remote, if it works then push SAT and you're good to go. If not repeat steps 2 and 3 to try a different code.

My dish remote wont connect to the dish reciever


If you have a single mode receiver, you need to open the panel in front and push system info.
A channel number will appear near the bottom of the list of information... it may be between 1 and 15. Push the record button on your remote control. (the black button with the red dot). If the channel number changed, then your remote and receiver are not on the same channel. Assume your channel was #1. when you first pushed sys info. You need to program your remote to #1. On your remote, push the Sat button until all other top buttons light up. enter the digit 1 and then the # key. Press the record button 4 times. You have to make sure you have the correct color key inserted in the remote control. If you have a dual mode receiver, one remote key will be green, and the second channel remote will have a blue key. Go to the Dish network website tech portal ...Google will help you find it, for complete instructions from the horse's mouth.
