Hitachi 42hdt79 Plasma TV Dish Network Code

I have a Dish Network remote 5.0 IR and have successfully gotten it to work on our Hitachi Plasma 42HDT79, but does anyone have a more specific code? Hitting select changes the language, the up/down or the tiny little arrows on the remote instead of the larger ones. Right now it's better than nothing, but thought someone might know a better code to correct it's annoyances.

Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.

SOURCE: Dish IR Remote 20.0 has problems after sunset.

The problem for me was the TV giving off IR signals that interfered with DISH's poorly designed remote. When the TV's room ambient light sensor was turned on and it became dusk outside the DISH remote would stop working. Moving the receiver away from the TV helps but the problem is not eliminated until the light sensor is turned off.
Until DISH corrects this poor design there may be no other viable solution.

No, I'm sorry to say that the TV needs to check to find the problem. There is not way to just disengage the "protective mode".

If you would like to attempt to trouble shoot this yourself, you should obtain the service manual and with some electronic experince (maybe a friend) try to locate the problem. There is no one place we can direct you to with the information that you have given above.

You can obtain the manual by clicking on this - service manual
