Hey mpabon0712,

You can definitely reprogram your remote, though I am unsure if you are referring to the satellite or the TV. I will provide you steps for both just to make sure. If you need any help with the steps or codes you can also check out this link for more information:

Addressing Remote to Receiver:

1.) Go to System Info screen.
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.
6.) Test remote and see if works.

Addressing Remote to TV:

1.) Press and hold the clear TV button until all mode lights light up.
2.) Release and TV light will be blinking.
3.) Enter code and press #.
4.) Try functions (Volume, Power, etc..) and see if working.
5.) If no function, repeat steps 1-4 with another code.

Hope that helps and feel free to ask if you have anymore questions!

What do I do if Nothing works on/off, channel changer, turning off receiver

I would try changing the batteries. If that doesn't do the trick then you either need to reprogram the remote or just call Dish and they will issue you a new remote.

I lost my remote control for magnavox 20v6

To buy an original remote control you have to contact the nearest Magnavox Authorised Service center. They can provide you a new one. If you want to buy one universal remote control, check the remote controls' code list, and make sure that the universal remote contro you buy have setup codes for Magnavox.

How to reprogram a universal remote control?

    • 1 Find the brand of the universal remote you own on Internet sites like (see Resources below).
    • 2 Click on your universal remote brand on the website to find the code list for that remote.
    • 3 Check to see if your remote is preprogrammed to operate your TV, VCR, or Cable Box using the following codes: TV - 000, VCR - 000, Cable Box - 000, AUX - use VCR code 037.
    • 4 Manually turn on your device. Hold down the "Code Search" button on your remote, then press and release the device button you want to set up until it flashes.
    • 5 Push the power button repeatedly until the device turns off, then hit "Enter."
    • 6 Press any other button while the device is on to see if the device responds. If it does, you don't need to do any other programming. If it doesn't, repeat steps 4-6.

I cant get my guide to come up. How do I correct this? Thanks in advance!

Have you tried unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds? Also, do the other functions on this remote work properly? You can also try reprogramming the remote by pressing the system info button on the front of the receiver and pressing the "SAT" button you should hear three tones confirming it worked. If you need further assistance e-mail me at

I have and RCA RCR311ST Universal Rmote Contro which I can not seem to find the Cole Selector button to program my Orion TV any ideas?

I can help you reprogram your RCA RCR311ST for all your Orion TV. The folks at RCA did away with a code search button for this model and you must press a combination of buttons to setup programming more.

Please review my Fixya Tip posts for:

  1. Searching for the proper codes, or
  2. Entering the codes you have looked up for your Orion TV on this remote's device code list.
I hope that helps.
