Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician

Uhf pro fcc id DKNFSK01 MY REMOTE WILL NOT WORK AT ALL I'VE PUT NEW BATTERIES IN IT AND IT LIGHTS UP BUT WILL NOT WORK THE RECIEVER AT ALL ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT THAT YOU


Hey edwards879,

It sounds like the remote needs to be addressed to the receiver.

I have provided the steps below to assist you with that, you can also check out this link: http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-setup

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 works.

If you reprogram it and it still doesn't work the remote may need to be replaced. If that's the case or if you have any other questions let me know!

bp22911,

It sounds like it may be an interference issue with the IR. Some LCD TV's can cause interference with an IR signal which will cause problems with the remote. Something you can try to fix is disabling the Auto Back-Lighting feature on the TV itself and see if that helps. If not, the easiest way to fix would be to make the TV1 remote UHF.

This would require a 21.0 remote as a 20.0 is IR only. Look on the back of the remote at the top to see what model you have.

With a 21.0 go to System Information. On the back of the remote inside the battery cover is a switch that says IR And UHF and make sure the green 1 is showing. Flip it to UHF and press Record 3 times. The Primary Address should now have UHF in it. Try the remote and see if it works.

If it doesn't or you continue to have problems you can post here or email me at thomas.faust@dishnetwork.com

Hello, this is Becki Barned, with DISH Network customer service. For this issue, since you have already replaced the remote and have the 5 foot coax cable on the antenna, then at this point, we would want to send a tech out for you. The technician can determine if this is an issue with the receiver box, or can set up a back feed for you. I can help you out with this issue further. You can e-mail me at becki.barned@dishnetwork.com .

The switch that selects what type of remote style (UHF or IR) is probably the culpret.


pull the battery cover and take out the blue tab

Play with the switch unitl it works and put the tab back in (the tab is supposed to select the right value for you but it may not be properly aligned.

i was about to toss mine but this worked.

Remote buttons light up, nothing happens , wont run the reciever


Phil with DISH Network here and happy to help! Here are some steps thatshould fix your remote:

Step 1:
Check if the issue is with a specific button. If its just one button that isnot working we need to have the remote replaced.

Step 2:
We want to make sure that the correct remote is being used for the TV in this room. Use remotekey (Green "1" or Blue "2 UHF") to confirm itis being used in the correct room. TV1 is located in the same room as your DISHreceiver.

Step 3:
If UHF, check that your UHF remote antenna is securely connected to the "RemoteAntenna" port on the back of your receiver and that the antenna isupright.

Step 4:
If issue is with the TV2 remote, bring your TV2 remote with you to TV1. Access "SystemInfo" at TV1, using the remote that is NOT functioning, pressand release the "SAT" button then press and release the RECORDbutton on remote control.

Step 5:
If the batteries in the remote have not been replaced in the past 60 days,replace the batteries. If the remote doesn't light up after replacingbatteries, have the remote replaced.

Step 6:
Unplug the receiver for 10 seconds then repeat step 4.

Step 7:
If the remote is still not working the issue may be caused by IR interference.Find interference source (back lighting or power save mode on LCD TV's,fluorescent lighting in room, or direct sunlight). Getting rid of theinterference should fix it.
If you are using a UHF remote, find interference source (component(s)(VCR, DVD Player, etc.) near DISH receiver), adjust UHF antenna, or distance UHF antenna from receiver using coax cable.

After completing all these steps if you're remote is not working give us a callfor additional troubleshooting at 1-800-333-DISH (3474).

Thanks for being a value DISH Network customer!

IR remote-Bizare Problem


Okay I am a bit confused as to the exact problem you are having but I will give you multiple avenues to resolve thios issue.

Assuming that the issue exists with TV1's remote:

Some IR remotes experience interference with other peripherals at times. The easiest way to resolve this is to get an 8.0 remote that is IR/UHF capable.Using the front panel buttons or the old remote place the receiver into UHF Pro mode by pressing menu-6-1-6 . You should be on UHF Pro setup: move the highlight to the left and go to the enable selection, press select and move the highlight back to the right to done.exit out of all screens. Then press the menu button twice to get to the system info screen.Here we will be canging the remote address of the new 8.o remote to the number for the primary remote address. This number is near the bottom of the screen. On the 8.0 press the small SAT button in the upper left hand of the remote and hold until all light on the top light up, enter the number on the screen for the primary remote using the keypad on the 8.0, press the pound sign, the SATbutton should flashh three times, then press the record button. Now you should be able to use the new remote normally. You will need to program the remote to the TV if you were able to control volume and turn TV on and off before. Since this is a different model remote it may or may not be compatible with the TV. If you need assistance with programming the remote to the TV itself just post another request for assistance and one of Fix Ya's Expert will hook you up. You can also find the solution in the archives of previous solutions as that issue is commonly addressed in this forum.

If the issue lies with the TV2 remote I would suggest moving the antenna off the back of the receiver into the room TV 2 is located. This can be accomplished by following the following diagram. If you still need assistance please let me know. I hope this solves your issue.
