Question about Emerson EWD2004

3 Answers

Dish network I recently got Dish network programming and have tried to set up the remote for Dish to control the DVD/VCR player so that I can record problems. Problem is, there don't seem to be any codes for the DVD/VCR player. I called Dish and they told me to call Emerson. I called Emerson and they told me to call Dish. Runaround. Meanwhile, I still can't record programs. Any ideas?

    I have direct tv and could not find a code for the Emerson DVD/VCR combo for the direct tv remote. Plus I could not find the original remote! I was going to buy a new remote (found one for just under $20 on ebay), but decided to try something else first... I programed the av1 spot on the remote by searching for the VCR code that turned the unit on & off (played and rew/ff too!) . It worked for the VCR! So, I used the av2 switch to try out codes for the DVD. After a few worked! Of course, it used the only 2 spaces on my direct tv remote that it had, but I do not have any other equipment, so it didn't matter to me. I know this problem was posted 2 years ago, but I just wanted to share with you my problem and solution in case someone comes across this with the same problem.

With the dish remote and do a code search as described in the remote manual and see if you can find it that way. If you go through the entire code search and none of them turn off the VCR/DVD combo, then there is nothing you can do, as those codes in the remote are all stored in the remote and they cannot be programed in. If you do not have a remote manual to set up the remote, to do a code search, simply go to the dishnetwork web site and search for it.

I know this was posted a long time ago, but I had a similar problem with my Direct TV remote and the Emerson DVD/VCR. I searched for a solution too and came across this site with the same problem. I just wanted to share with everyone how I fixed my problem so someone searching in the future could try the same.
On my direct tv remote, there were 2 space for dvd, vcr, etc...I did a code search in av1 that would turn off the VCR/DVD palyer. I found one! The problem was that it only worked the VCR part of my combo. Because I didn't have the original remote to the DVD/VCR and didn't want to shell out $20-$30 I tried something else. In the av2 slot, i tried to program only the DVD and after a few golly it worked! I know it is kind of a pain to have to use 2 av slots and have to turn the whole thing on with av1 and then control the dvd with the av2 but it beats having to spend the grocery money. I hope this helps someone!

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.

It's kind of silly but I just pushed the VCR mode button, pressed the power on and off mode button & pressed the up button until the remote found the code. Took awhile but it finally worked.

Dish Pro record code for Mag combo

ZNREL, I've done this with Dish Pro before. Setup the Dish remote to control the Mag combo in the VCR position. Press the SAT button and select the guide. Go to the program in the guide and select it. The "record this program" routine should pop up, set it up. Here's the key, make sure the Dish remote has the VCR button selected and that the remote is placed where it can "see" the Mag combo. At the set time, the Dish remote will change the DishPro to the proper channel and then issue s "record" command via infrared to the Mag combo to start recording. DishNet has all of the device codes to their remotes downloadable from their site.
