Question about DISH Network Televison & Video

1 Answer

The sat button on my remote is rapidly blinking, and now most of the other buttons will not work.

The sat button on my remote just started rapidly blinking and now, for the most part none of the other buttons work. If I hold the sat button, it'll stay solid. If I hold it for several seconds, all four of the buttons at the top (sat, tv, dvd, aux) will solidly glow, but, again, the other buttons will not work. Except, strangely enough, I've discovered the volume down button works. Not up or mute, just down. So far haven't discovered any other working buttons. Batteries are perfectly fine, by the way.

When the SAT button blinks repeatedly, or the buttons do a dance (Sat & DVD, TV & AUX, repeat) it means you need new batteries. Replace all four AAA batteries, ensure they are all four aligned the same way, and then hit SAT. Your remote should return to its normal function. If you leave the batteries out for too long, the remote will forget how to operate the TV and receiver, so be sure to have all four new batteries ready before you remove the old ones.

SOURCE: Hughes Remote works the satellite but not the TV

You have to push and hold down TV and Mute button (for 2 seconds at the same time), then release them at the same time, then push channel up until the TV turns off.  Be patient and continue channel up until the TV turns off.  When it turns off, then push TV again to lock the code.

You were doing fine, but missed to push channel up to fine the code.

SOURCE: My remote won't change from AUX to Tv and all of the buttons don't work on AUX except for the volume and mute, how do I get it back on tv? Thank you

Try to push the TV button that is lit red at top middle of remote for 5 seconds in stead of hitting input. In other words by holding the tv button down it might trigger it to respond better. Thanks Mike

Can you use a universal remote for your dish box


. With universal remotes you need to make sure that the remote address on the Dish receiver is set to 1 for the primary remote. To check this all you need to do is press the menu button on your DISH remote two times. That will bring you to a screen that says "System Info". You will see a line that says "Primary Remote Address", in the white box to the right of the line that will have a number in it. That number needs to be 1, if it is not we can change it by holding the SAT button on your DISH remote until all the lights light up. Once the lights light up release the button and the SAT button will be blinking, while it is blinking press the number 1 followed by the # button. The SAT button will blink 3 times. After it blinks press the record button 3 times and that number will change to one. Try your universal remote, if it is compatible with our equipment it should be working now. Let me know if you have any other questions. This does work for all universal remotes.
It is definitely easier to get your Dish remote to work with the rest of your equipment.

Device code


You can power scan for the code.
Turn ON the electronic device you want to program the remote to control.
Press the Mode button( sat,tv,dvd,aux) on the remote until the appropriate mode light is flashing.

Press the Power button. The mode light will stop flashing and stay lit.
Press the Up or Down arrow button to set the remote to the next code. The Down arrow button scans backward and the Up arrow button scans forward.
When the correct code is reached, the device (whether a TV, VCR, or other) will turn off.

Press the pound key button to store the code in the remote control memory. If the code is valid for your remote, the mode light will blink 3 times.
Turn the device back ON by pressing the Power button.
Press sat mode key once you power back on the tv to be able to operate the receiver box.
Try some other functions to make sure you have the correct code. Occasionally the Power button may work when others do not.
If the other buttons work you are finished.

.
If the other buttons do not work, repeat the previous steps. The scan will resume from the last code stored.
The mode light will flash rapidly when the scan has returned to the starting point and all codes have been tested for that mode. The remote control may not control some device models.

I need the codes to program my Innovage Jumbo Universal Remote for Dynex television


As there are no specific codes for the Dynex TV you have the choice of either using the Auto or Learn method. The following are instructions for both:

AUTO Method

1. Press & Hold (about 3 sec.) the [DEVICE] button on the JUMBO Remote....llight will stay solid.
2. Now just press the [POWER] button (only) ONCE while pointing at the device...it will start sending codes approximately every second. (Don't keep pressing the power button as instructions indicate.)
3. TIMING IS EVERYTHING HERE. (It may take 5 minutes to find your devices code.)
4. AS SOON AS the power goes off...press the [ENTER] button on the JUNBO Remote.
5. Now pressing the [POWER] button should power up/down the device.

---- any buttons not programmed will have to be handled using the LEARN method ---

LEARN Method

1. Press & Hold (about 3 sec.) the [DEVICE] button on the JUMBO Remote....it'll stay solid.
2. Press the [LEARN] button on the JUMBO Remote. (light will immediately blink rapidly.)
3. Now Press the {NEEDED} button to program. (light will stay solid)
4. Now (1 to 2 inches away) have the ORIGINAL Remote pointed at the JUMBO Remote and press the {DESIRED} button on the ORIGINAL Remote.
5. It blinks rapidly while sending...then a slower steady blink once "LEARNED" correctly.

*** Not all buttons work properly with the "LEARN method". Some you will need to "associate" with an alternate button on the JUMBO Remote. *

How do you set the garage door opener for a 2004 toyota 4runner LTD?


You hold the remote close to the three buttons on the vehicle. You choose which button you want the remote to transmit to, and you hold it down. With your other hand, depress the garage door remote opener, and hold it very close to the 3-button assembly. Wait for the red L.E.D. light to blink slowly. If it does not blink slow, continue moving the remote around, until it does blink slow. When it starts to blink slowly, stop moving the remote around. Wait until the light starts blinking rapidly. When the light blinks rapidly, the process is complete.
