It sounds as though you might have just accidentally pressed a button and changed the remote into an incorrect mode for example, tv, or aux modes. This would in fact prevent the remote from successfully working with the DISH Network receiver. If this is in fact the problem, then the remote simply needs to be put into "SAT" mode, once its back in SAT mode you will then be able to change channels, select menu, power receiver on and off, etc. The "SAT" button is labeled & in the upper left hand corner of the remote to put the remote back in satellite mode, please just press that SAT once and then release, the SAT button should briefly light up red & then the light will go out, you should then be able to use the remote again, to ensure remote was successfully changed back to SAT mode, you can press select or any other button you chose & as long as the SAT button lights up when you press another remote control button- then your all set to go & everything should be working once again! I hope this helps -please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!

I have a 4k aquos 55 tv and since I've owned it I've been putting batteries in it for a year straight they will last 1 day then I replace the batteries I could never sit on my couch the remote wont go that...


This is not an isolated problem with your TV. A similar issues has affected different brands and models as well and appears to be connected to manufacturers' programming firmware updates. Changing the remote may not fix the issue (new remotes can be polarity sensitive and putting batteries in them the wrong way can damage them which is a plausible reason why they'd start eating batteries) If you think it's a jammed button and don't know how to test it, grab your phone and set it to camera, then aim the remote into the camera - if you see a white light without any buttons being pressed it has a jammed button.

  1. Manually turn ON your device (TV, VCR, Cable Box)
  2. Press and "HOLD" CODE SEARCH
  3. Press and release the device button you want to set up (TV, VCR, Cable Box) However, if you are using AUX for a device, press and release AUX first and then the device button for the type of device to be programmed (TV, VCR, or Cable). The selected device button will flash once.
  4. Release CODE SEARCH.
  5. Press OFF/ON repeatedly until the device turns off (you may have to press up to 100 times at a rate of once per second).
  6. Once the device turns off, press and release ENTER.
  7. With the device on, press any other button. If the device responds, no further programming is required. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 1-6.

I HAVE A PANASONIC PLASMA TV,SERIAL NO IS TH-37PG9U,THAT STUCK ON HOTEL MODE,IT HAVE PC,DVD,AND NORMAL CABLE INPUTS,BUT NOTHING WORKS,HOW CAN I RESET IT TO WORK,THANKS IN ADVANCE


Be careful with this !
One wrong mis-setting and you could cause problems with your set.

On the TV itself, find the manual buttons down the side and select

-/V button press down and keep it pressed down meanwhile, on your remote...

Press the AV or TV/AV button three times in quick succession.
(depends which remote you have).

First press -/V then while still pressed down, press remote AV button 3 times
The menu will appear and you can change the settings.....just don't play around with it, it will go wrong very quick. Just stick to the objective and you'll be fine.

What are u using for a signal source? Cable, Satellite, Over the air? My best guess is that you hit a wrong button such as the "source" button and the remote doesn't know what device you are wanting to opperate. Press volume up then down and see what light lights up?
If it is other than "TV" then you probably have the wrong device selected... Hope this helps... Sincerely HDTV GURU JAY

I have a Soniq LCD TV purchased December 2008. The remote will not work, turns on TV but will not change channels, I have to do so, manually. Solution please.


Check if all buttons are working fine. Testing remote is easy. Use your mobile camera. While watching the LED in the remote through your mobile camera, press buttons. When you press button the LED should light up. You can't see with naked eye but can see this LED flashing through camera.
If LED is flashing for all buttons, then something wrong with the TV. In your case, buttons in the TV are working fine so TV has no problem at all. Your remote should be the problem.

Rca remote not programming with tv


I just got the same remote to work.  I did the auto scan method in the instructions.  turn on the tv, hold the tv and power button on the remote down until it stays lit.  Then press the play button, the remote will blink 10 times, press play again and the tv should turn off in a few blinks.  then when the remote finishes blinking, press the reverse button until the tv turns on again, when the tv turns on, press the stop button.  Hope this helps!

Did you check the Audio-Video slider button in the middle of the remote? It needs to be on Audio, else the remote sends video channel number signals when you press the numbers.
