Unlock channels dish reciver

Jim Belflower,
I would be happy to help you with this. Are you trying to unlock channels that were locked by the parental controls system? If so, the account holder would have to contact us, verify their information, and request an access hit to be sent.
If you're looking to unlock channels to watch, and upgrade would be required if you don't currently receive them. There is no way to receive those channels free.

Parental lock code has been lost how can i unlock and reset code

Without a model number I'll have to list several solutions.

Push Vol Down and Chan Up on the set at the same time, Then go to password screen and enter 0000.

Reduce Vol to minimum and hold Vol Down on set and Vol Down on remote.

Hold Vol Down on TV while pushing "TV" button on remote for 3 seconds.

With TV OFF, press and hold Vol Down on TV and "Clear" on remote for five (5) seconds.

Press "Menu" button on TV and "TV" button on remote for 3 seconds.
Some models use the Vol Down button on remote instead of "TV" button on remote.

With Remote go to Parental Menu and enter 2211 for code.

Go to parental Menu and press Mute, Display, Clear, Reset in sequence on the Remote.

Press "Menu" button on the set and Vol Down on Remote for 3 to 5 seconds.

With remote go to parental screen and press Chan Up and Vol Up on the front of set for 3 to 5 seconds.

Channels are locked HELP anyone

Call Dish at 800-333-3474 and ask them to reset the parental control password and this should unlock the sytem for you. It has been awhile since I had this issue. If you can't access channels yet go to the menu and go to locks and then it is pretty self explanatory but if you have issues let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
