Question about DISH Network IR Remote Control

1 Answer

TV input I have had this happen twice now. When certain buttons are hit on the remote, the TV screen, for both Dish TV and the dVD player, goes blank. The TV still shows volume indicator, and TV channel, and gets audio, but no video. When i had dish TV on the phone, they insisted it was the TV input, or the TV was on the wrong channel--- both of which i tried. while i was speaking with them and furiously hitting buttons, the picture came back. now it happened again, and i am incredibly frustrated. I have changed channels, hit the input button, and every combination i can think of. What did i do with the remote, and how do i get if back?

It is likely that your tv is interpreting a random button on your remote as a signal sent for it to change inputs, next time this happens turn the tv off and back on and note what comes up on the screen, for example video 1,

I have recently had dish network installed and now I cant get my DVD player to play I have tried contacting dish network for assistance and no one can figure out the problem. I have a LG TV


Hello! This is Dan with DISH Network customer support. have you tried cycling the inputs? If you have an HD tv the DISH receiver and your DVD are probably connected using different cables. I would power them both on and hit the input or source button on your LG remote until you get a picture from the dvd player. Remember what input comes up as you will need to change this to go from satellite to DVDand back.

My remote control is broken. How do I watch DVD's


Hello Boye4522,

If you connect your Dvd player up via a scart lead directly to the back of your Tv when you turn on the DVD player this will send a voltage to the tv telling it to change to the input that your Dvd player is on.

Job done.

Cheers Little Dish Fitter.
