Dish Network IR Remote's SAT Mode Not Working ________________________________________ I programmed my Dish Network Remote (IR 1.5 Blue Button Remote Control ) for my Sharp 27F543 and now the remote would not switch to the SAT mode! The receiver is: DISH Network / Echostar MPEG2 DV3 3800. I cannot go into SYSINFO on this remote - there are only two buttons available - UP/ DOWN (Press together to power) I have also tried to reset the TV settings on the remote but holding the TV mode for 3-6 seconds but it does not go into the pairing mode. Help!

Hello, this is Nick Franta with DISH.

If you are trying to get the remote programmed to the receiver you can remove the smartcard from the receiver and that will prompt the system info screen. This will allow you to program the remote to the receiver.

If you need the process for programming the remote, here it is:

  1. Go to System Info screen (in this case -- obtain by removing smartcard from receiver)
  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.
Hope this helps!

My 1.5 IR Dish remote has all of a sudden stopped working with our Sanyo tv. I've changed the batteries. When I push the power button it will only light up the VCR button if anything at all. Our other...

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):

http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-setup
Here are the TV codes: 590, 683, 589, 542, 652

I hope this helps.

The tv is jammed. Remote is fine but have pressed the wrong button


It sounds as though you might have just accidentally pressed a button and changed the remote into an incorrect mode for example, tv, or aux modes. This would in fact prevent the remote from successfully working with the DISH Network receiver. If this is in fact the problem, then the remote simply needs to be put into "SAT" mode, once its back in SAT mode you will then be able to change channels, select menu, power receiver on and off, etc. The "SAT" button is labeled & in the upper left hand corner of the remote to put the remote back in satellite mode, please just press that SAT once and then release, the SAT button should briefly light up red & then the light will go out, you should then be able to use the remote again, to ensure remote was successfully changed back to SAT mode, you can press select or any other button you chose & as long as the SAT button lights up when you press another remote control button- then your all set to go & everything should be working once again! I hope this helps -please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!
