Im in dual mode but my remote for tv 1 is not doing anything what do i do

Hi there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service. Icame across your post and wanted to see if I could help. It sounds like yourremote may need to be readdressed to your DISH receiver box. You are going towant to check your batteries first to make sure that they are fresh if not try replacingthem. Once you have changed your batteries, try pressing the SAT mode buttonand hold it down until all other mode lights light up red. If both options donot work try readdressing the remote to the receiver, I will list here for youthe instructions for addressing your remote. I hope you find this informationuseful and if you have any further questions please feel free to post back hereor email me at [email protected] :)

One red light three green flash when turned on

Your chair has a motor problem. The code does not tell which side it is. Make sure both motors have the brakes in the drive position before turning on the chair. Also check that both motors are plugged into the main control module in the base of the chair.

Is the two red light problem the same repair as the three light problem?

No . The Three red light repair sometimes causes the 2 red light problem.

The Problem is either your G.P.U or C.P.U has broken it's thermail
seal from the heat sink , and will need to be re-seated to restore normal
operation .

You can do this yourself by firmly and evenly pushing down on
both heat sink . then check and repeat if needed.

Or you can have a repair shop re-seat the heat sinks , im
no sure how much they would charge ,maybe 40.00-50.00?

If you have any question's just comment and ill respond.

Did it turn on Prior to you taking it apart?  If so then it is most likely the ribbon cable between the switch and the mainboard.

3 flashing red light on console

uh well u got the three red lights of death it sounds like... and i also had those. while im no expert on this stuff, iv seen that u can put ur 360 sideways on a table, wrap it in towels(and i mean like 2 towels, wrap it up completely) and turn it on and leave it on for about 10-15 mins. just make sure a fire doesnt start in those 10-15 mins(believe me you dont want to call the fire company and tell them u started a fire wrapping ur game console in towels), ok then after u done waitin turn it off, unwrap it, and let it sit until it is cool, and try turning it on. it might work, its supposed to work because those three red lights mean that theres a malfunction in the 360 itself, such as wires or sumthin, and extreme heat may melt the wires and fix the problem, how i dont know but theres so many stories of ppl who have pulled it off
