Question about DISH Network 721 DVR Remote Control

1 Answer

No communication between receiver and remote

The SAT button lights up when buttons such as "guide" and "recall" are pushed but nothing else happens. The tv functions such as volume and power work fine so the remote works fine. There is nothing blocking the receiver. The remote was fine until a few minutes ago.

Amandaharwoo,

The first thing I would do, if you haven't already, is replace the batteries in the remote. The lights will still illuminate if the batteries are low but won't perform the remote functions. If that doesn't fix the problem, the remote may need to be readdressed to the receiver. I have provided the steps below. If you have further problems, please respond to the site.

  • Remote: All Other Remotes
    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. Note: If successful the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

On my dish remote for tv 2 sat button stopped working and wont light up. all other buttons work. i have changed batteries but nothing changed. How do i fix this because i dont wan to waste money on an


Kevin rico,

I can definitely check this out with you. Does the SAT button light up when you press any buttons at all? If you press SAT, can you operate the receiver?

If neither of those work then the remote most likely needs to be replaced. If you would like to try that option, just send me an email at thomas.faust@dish.com and i'll assist you further!

Tv1 ir remote stopped communicating with 625 receiver, tv2 works fine...


Baba Ra,

We can definitely check this out! I hope it has been resolved by now. If it hasn't, please check the batteries and make sure they're good. If they are, try re-programming the remote. I have included the steps below for that!

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 it works.

If the problem continues, make sure there are no sources of interference like lights or heat near the receiver. If it continues after, then we will need to send a replacement remote. You can reach me here or at thomas.faust@dish.com for further assistance!

Ensure that the batteries are inserted the right way, if they are not the remote will not get power.

Make sure to hit the STB button and then press the POWER button.


Hope this helps!

    3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.

Have you replaced the batteries in the remote that is not working. If batteries are low, the lights will still light up but will not operate the functions for the remote. When you press and release the SAT button, what happens? If you try to press the SELECT button, does the TV button light or the SAT button? If you have already tried these steps, you may need to readdress the remote to the receiver. I have provided a link with the instructions on readdressing the remote. I hope this helps.

Readdressing the remote, step 5:
