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 pressed the buttons on the side of the tv and now i cannot get a picture


It's probably the input. Use the input or source button to change the input to the one corresponding to your receiver (don't know? check the back of your DISH remote or try them all!) Most TVs will change the input to the old TV (ch 3, etc) when you hit the channel up or down button or if you hit input or source, so it only takes a small brush with the wrong button to ruin your night.

Hi there! this is Kimberly Escobar with Dish Network Customer support, I just ran across your post and would like to help you out by providing you the information that can help get this issue resolved. To program the remote to your Viore T.V you can try code 738. What you would need to do is press and hold the clear T.V button located on the upper left hand corner of your remote (you will see all the other top buttons light up) then you will let go of the T.V button and enter the number 738 followed by the pound (#) key, notice you will see the clear T.V button flash 3 times. After this you can try the volume function and turning on and off your T.V. If it works you can try changing inputs on the T.V by pressing the T.V/Video button or Input button on the remote. Unfortunately we can't promise our remote will control all the functions on your T.V we also have this link available that you can as well find very helpful http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-setup and you are more than welcome to also contact us directly. Thank you hope this helps.

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.

Hiaschulte274 my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network, there are some things youcan do it get back to your programming. The first thing you will need to do isunplug the receiver for 10 seconds and after plugging it back in it will powerup and once you see the green light on the receiver you will want to go tochannel 3. If you still see no programming go through the different inputs onthe TV. I will send a link to help show how to resolve this issue as well. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/bbs-screen

How to use your control with my dvd player


Hello chegui59, my name is Michael Hurst with DISH Network. There are 2 ways of programming your remote to your DVD player. You can use a remote code for your DVD player. In order to give you the right remote code I would need to know the manufacture of your DVD player and the model of the remote that you have. You can also try a Power Scan to get the DVD player programmed into your DISH remote, here are the steps: Withthe desired equipment on, press and hold the correct mode button until all modebutton backlights illuminate, then release. Press and release the Power button. AUX Mode: Before pressingand releasing the Power button. Press 0 for a TV, Press 1 for a VCR/DVD andPress 2 for any other device. Then Press STAR (*). Press the Up button once asecond while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for theequipment comes up, the equipment will power off. Press the POUND (#) button. Ifthe code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.

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.

Can't get the tv/input button to work on dish remote control with vizio tv. need it to view local channels run off antenna


Hi there! This is Kimberly Escobar with Dish Network. Just ran across your post and wanted to help. In order to get the remote to possibly work the Inputs on your T.V the remote needs to be programmed to your Vizio T.V. In order to do this we have certain codes that can be integrated into the remote. Some of the codes for a Vizio T.V are 505, 671, and 627. The procedure is press and hold the clear T.V buttton located at the top of your remote until you see all the other buttons light up in red, once they are lid up enter one of your codes followed by the pound key for example: 505#. The T.V button should light up 3 times you can then try the remote to see if it works your T.V

Unfortunately we cannot promise it will completely function the T.V so it might bu that input button does not work. If you need any help please contact us directly at 1800-333-DISH.

You will need to by a universal remote in most circumstances as the Dish remote may not cycle through the inputs on your tv. You can try the recovery button on the remote it will have a small R on it. Press it many times to se if it it set to cycle through the inputs. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
