I have had a similar problem with an older VCR/TV combo. Wasn't able to get full functions on the Dish remote, but was able to get it to recognize it as a VCR so we could at least power it on/off with the remote - but had to push VCR button and use the regular power button on the remote, not the TV button.

Can't use this remote to change volume or any other functions.

This is apparently a problem with many combo units - because they're not a true TV or DVD player but a hybrid.

Trying to set up dish network remot to apex dvd player


I'm sorry you are having problems programming your DISH Network remote to your Apex DVD player. I looked through our remote codes but I don't show we have a code for an Apex DVD player. We do have remote codes for an Apex TV. You can run a power scan to see if you can find a code for the DVD player. I have provided the instructions to conduct the power scan below. If you have any other question, please post to this site.

Need the number code for rca tv

I hope that after 9 months, you have gotten this resolved but if you have any problems, or you have another remote you would like to program, here are some simple steps!!!

The first instructions here are for a power scan, which scans the tv for the correct code for the remote. You just hold down the clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up, then press the Power button, then press the up arrow about once a second, until the tv turns off. If the tv turns off, press the # (pound) button. Try your volume and to power the tv on/off. If one or both of these do not work, start the process over.

If you want to use only codes, here are the steps:
1. Hold down the clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up.
2. Punch in the 3-digit code (provided below for RCA tv.)
3. Press the # (pound) button
4. Try the volume, and to power the tv on/off. If one or both do not work, start again at step 1 with a different code.

Dish network remote to run RCA DVD player

I had rca remote that did not recieve ir signals but rf signals instead. Check online with rca or in owners manual for what type of signal factory remote sends. The dvd player I had was 5 dvd and that was the case. Dish might have an option like direct tv where you can program rf signals as well. Call dish network support or look online

I have dish network and a new rca tv with dvd the

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.
