That would be a tv issue it sounds like it's not set to the correct input. Try the steps in the link below this should help with our equipment. As far as the DVD player is concerned try checking the connections and cycling the inputs on it. Hope that helps!

Dish network Blue screen No "Signal


Hi john harrison!

A blue screen with "No Signal" is usually related to a video problem. The TV may be getting changed off the correct input/channel, or the video cable might be going bad.

If you have a spare, I would recommend a different cable and seeing if that fixes the problem. If it continues, verify the input/channel your TV is on when it receives a picture and if it goes out try putting it back on that input/channel.

If problems still continue I would be happy to review additional options with you. You can reach me here or at thomas.faust@dish.com

I'm hooked up tp Dish Network an hit wrong button on top for volume and now pic is gone. in lower left corner says no signal., but dish is working, just no picture on screen


Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. It sounds like you are going to need to change your TV back to the proper input or channel. If the TV remote is not working to change the channels you can also use the buttons on the front of the TV. First look for a button listed as either input, TV/video, source or AUX. When you press this button it will start cycling through all the inputs available, make sure to cycle through them slowly because it make take a couple seconds for the picture to come in. If you do not find a picture on any of the inputs you are going to need to try the different channels. Normally for a TV where the receiver box is the TV should be set to channel 3 or 4. Once you have found your DISH Network picture you will want to make sure to push the SAT button on the DISH remote so that it doesn't change the TV channel again. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions or concerns please let me know. Thanks. :)

My dish network dvr stops recording some programs, i think its just shows that are to be recorded on tv 1. It will record only like 10 minutes or less and stops recording


jeff_rhondac,

Check the timers you have setup for the programs that are suppose to record. Make sure the timers are setup correctly. Do you have any timers setup to begin early and end late? A new software update rolled about 2 weeks ago. Did you start experiencing the problem after that? Also, how much available time is available on the HD? Please let me know so I can further assist you.

Thanks,

Hi carltonmarcumy name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and for the TV2 you want the Modularset to cable and channel 73, and then make sure the TV itself is set to channel73. After you have the modular set to channel 73 and the TV set to channel 73and you do not see a DISH Network picture you will then make sure theconnections from the wall to the TV are tight as well as from the receiver tothe wall. Then you will want to unplug the receiver for 10 seconds and plug itback in it will power up and acquire the signal and once you see that check TV2and you should see the same thing on the screen. I will send a link that will helpout with these steps. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/black-blue-tv2

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!

Hello, my name is Becki Barned, with Dish Network customer service. To get your tv to work those particular functions, you will need to reprogram the remote to the tv, finding a code that works all functions of the tv. Some codes will work the power and volume, but not the other functions. Try these steps:

1. Hold down the TV mode button until all lights at the top of the remote are lit up
2. Press the 3 digit code in
3. Press the pound button
4. Press the SAT button on the top left of the remote.

Here are the codes to try:
505
671
627
864
006

Hope this helps!

My new remote that came with the tv does not allow me to change channels, but my dish remote still allows me to change channels


Your dish remote is the only one that is compatible with the dish receiver. You're going to have to program all the functions you want to use to the dish remote. They are usually set up for all the normal functions, volume, power, dvr etc.

My dish DVR HD control doesn't work


lumaes200,

You have indicated that you have a 622 DVR receiver, since this is where your posting was found. When you trying any of the DVR functions on the remote, do you get an error message (024 or 311) indicating that the function is not available at this time? If not, try unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds from the electrical outlet. This will reboot the receiver and re-acquire the satellite signal. Once the picture returns, try the DVR function. If the problem continues, please call 1-800-333-3474; we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.

You can not change channels on Satellite with your TV tuner card. The satellite box decodes the sat signal (it is sent encrypted) you can run S-Video/RCA/HDMI depending on the video card input, but you will be required to change the channel on the Dish box. The TV card can only change channels on broadcast (over the air) channels, you can attach an antenna and it will use the NTSC tuner to change analog channels (if they are still available) and the ATSC tuner to change digital/HD broadcast channels. This card (from your description can ONLY deal with broadcast TV, You will need a TV card with a QAM tuner for unscrambled digital cable. There is no solution for directly interfacing with Satellite on a PC or Mac (DirectTV or Dish) the signal from the satellite is encrypted and requires (at least for DirectTV, a fairly complicated decryption setup to function, this is handled by the tuner box/card combination. Sorry your setup will not support changing the channel on the PC, you may be able to find some kind of software that can utilize an IR transmitter to change the channels on your satellite box, similar to the way a Tivo or other DVR can talk to cable boxes, but that is the best you will be able to do as far as channel changing.
