Dish Remote Troubleshooting Steps

  1. Search the Code Listfor your device; try all codes that look like they describe your equipment.
    • If this does not work – do not ask me if I have the code you for your device. If there is no code listed, I don’t have it. Instead, perform a code scan.
  2. Perform a Code Scan, where the Dish Remote control scans every code it contains to see if one of them causes your device to respond. Instructions are on the page below.
    • If this does not work, your only choice is to. . .
  3. Purchase a Learning Universal Remote Control that can learn the codes for any device you have. A list of recommended remotes is shown below.


Universal Remote Control Recommendations

Beware! Many low quality learning remotes can’t learn the 57 kHz IR signal that the Dish remote control uses. This is the cause for many remotes not being able to learn Dish codes. Recommended remotes are below:

Best remotes by price range:

The best inexpensive learning remote for Dish system, or any other, is the Radio Shack 15-2116 ($30). It is similar to All for One remotes (and it manufactured by the same company) but this version has a backlit keypad. If you really want to customize these remotes, build or buy a JP1 cable and download your own files to these remotes.

The Logitech Harmony remotes cost between $80 and $140. These are very powerful and very easily configured via a PC and the Harmony website. Just input the make and model of your device and the correct codes are automatically identified. The correct inputs are automatically selected on all devices through a setup wizard. A powerful and easy remote.

If you’re looking for a high-quality universal remote control, I suggest you visit the Remote Central web site. There are discussion forums on everything related to remote controls. A large number of remotes have been released in the past year. Click here for an excellent table comparing the models.

Programming your Dish Network Remote Control

dish remote

Important Note:

If you can’t get a “universal remote” to control your Dish Receiver, it’s probably because it doesn’t have the correct remote address code set. If you can’t get your Dish remote to control another device, it’s probably because the Dish remote is missing the codes.

The only solution for either of these situations is to get a true, code learning universal remote control.

Programming Device Codes

The Dish Network remote can be programmed to control up to 4 devices:

  1. SAT Mode: Satellite receiver
  2. TV Mode: Television
  3. VCR Mode: VCR
  4. AUX Mode: Amplifier, Receiver, second TV, second VCR>

How do I program my remote control?

For remotes that have blue arrow and Select buttons and 4 separate mode buttons (SAT TV VCR AUX):
*If you start this procedure and at any time do not press a button within 20 seconds, the remote will end the procedure automatically. Simply start over again.

  • Press and hold the desired mode button (about three seconds) until all mode keys light up, then release.
  • Use the number pad buttons to enter the three-digit number corresponding to the equipment (click here to view remote codes). The light will blink off after each digit is entered and then return to a steady light.
  • Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
  • To verify the code works, try several functions for that equipment.

For remotes that have one Mode button at the top:

*If you start this procedure and at any time do not press a button within 20 seconds, the remote will end the procedure automatically. Simply start over.

  • With the desired equipment on, press and release the Mode button until the light flashes behind the correct mode.
  • Using the tip of a pen or the eraser on a pencil, press the address button.
  • Enter the code (see links to find your code below) on the remote’s numbered keypad for the equipment.
  • Press the Address button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
  • To verify the code works, try several functions for that equipment. Some codes may provide partial functions or respond differently than the button’s titled function. Try the other codes listed for that device until you find one that offers more complete functionality.

Click here for codes for remotes with blue buttons, gray buttons, and platinum (DVR) remotes.

I have tried all the codes to program my remote, what else can I do?

  1. Turn ON the electronic device you want to program the remote to control
  2. Find the brand name of the device in the device code tables below.
  3. If there is more than one numeric code listed for the brand, try each until the remote is able to control the device. If several codes power on the device, try all of the buttons for each code to find which one best controls all of the functions of the device.
  4. Press the Mode button on the remote until the remote is in the mode for the device being programmed. (The light corresponding to your device will be the last to flash.)
  5. Use the numeric key pad buttons to enter the first code listed for your device in the tables below. The mode light will stop flashing and stay lit.>

    Note: If you are entering a code for the AUX mode, you must enter a 4-digit code. The first digit indicates the device type:

    0 – indicates a second TV

    1- indicates a second VCR

    For example, to program the AUX mode to control a Sony TV, enter a 0 and then 000.

    If you are programming for an amplifier, receiver, or cable TV box, the codes in the table below include the first digit.

  6. Press the Address button to save the code. If the code you entered is valid for your remote, the mode light will blink 3 times.
  7. Test if the code works for the device by pressing the Power button. If the code is correct, the device should turn off.
  8. Turn the device back ON and try some other functions to make sure you have the correct code. Occasionally the Power button may work when other buttons do not.
  9. If the code works, then you can stop here. Write all of the codes you programmed on to the sticker that came with your satellite receiver and apply the sticker to the inside of the remote battery cover.
  10. If the code you entered does not work properly, repeat the above steps, using another code from the table. If you have tried all of the device codes without success, try using the following Power Scan procedure.

Remote Code Power Scan

If your brand is not listed below or if were were not able to get the listed device codes to work properly, use the following procedure to scan through all codes. If/when the remote scan scan reaches the correct code, the device (whether a TV, VCR, or other) will turn ON or OFF. When this happens, try some other functions to make sure you have the correct code. Occasionally the Power button may work when other buttons do not.

Note: If you start the procedure and at any time do not press a button within 20 seconds, the remote will end the procedure automatically.

  1. Turn ON the electronic device you want to program the remote to control.
  2. Press the Mode button on the remote until the appropriate mode light is flashing.
  3. Press the Address button. The mode light will start flashing slowly.
  4. Press the Power button. The mode light will stop flashing and stay lit.
  5. 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.
  6. When the correct code is reached, the device (whether a TV, VCR, or other) will turn off.
  7. Press the Address 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.
  8. Turn the device back ON by pressing the Power button.
  9. Try some other functions to make sure you have the correct code. Occasionally the Power button may work when others do not.
  10. If the other buttons work, follow the current settings procedure below to determine the current remote settings.
  11. If the other buttons do not work, repeat the previous steps. The scan will resume from the last code stored.
  12. 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.

Alternative Info:

If the codes provided do not work, you can try a Power Scan. Here are some simple tips before you begin:

When starting a Power Scan after previously entering the code manually, first reprogram the remote to 500 using the remote for a TV or VCR or 0000 for the AUX mode. This will give you quicker and more consistent results. Once the device powers off, press the # button or the address button depending on the type of remote you have. Manually turn on the device you are trying to program before you begin the Power Scan. If the scan powers the device off, but does not give full function, re-start scan mode and continue (for example, there are dozens of RCA TV codes). Not all devices are supported, and many will only give you basic functions. If performing the Power Scan correctly then it should not take more than six minutes to find the code.

If you are performing a Power Scan in AUX mode, the steps you should follow are below:

  • Hold down the AUX button so all buttons light up.
  • Enter in prefix 0=TV, 1=VCR, 2=AUX device (i.e., DVD, stereo amplifier, etc.).
  • Press the * button.
  • Press Power then press the Up button ike you would with a regular Power Scan.
  • Once the device powers off, press the # button or the address button depending on the type of remote you have.
  • If you start this procedure and at any time do not press a button within 20 seconds, the remote will end the procedure automatically. Simply start over again.

Determine the Current Remote Settings

You can find out which code is currently set for each remote mode.

  1. Press the Mode button on the remote until the appropriate mode light is flashing.
  2. Rapidly press the Address button twice.
  3. For the SAT mode, the mode light will flash the number of time that matches the receiver address.
  4. For the TV, VCR, and AUX modes, the mode light will flash the number of times to indicate each digit of the current code. There will be a pause between the flash sequences for the digits. A quick flash indicates zero.
  5. Write all of the codes you programmed on to the sticker that came with your satellite receiver and apply the sticker to the inside of the remote battery cover.

Note: When you change the remote batteries, be sure to swap the batteries as quickly as possible. Otherwise, you may need to reprogram these codes into the remote.


Changing Remote Address

Dish Network satellite receivers can be programmed to operate on different remote control addresses. Switching to a different address is necessary if you have 2 satellite receivers or if your neighbor’s receiver is set on the same remote address and they are changing your channels.

  1. Press the Mode button until the remote is in the SAT mode.
  2. Press the Address button once (the SAT mode light will start flashing).
  3. Use the numeric key to enter an address between 1 and 15 (do not put a 0 in front of single-digit addresses; 1 is the default remote address). The SAT mode light will stop flashing and stay lit.
  4. Press the Address button again to save the change to the remote control. If you entered a valid remote address, the SAT mode light will blink 3 times.
  5. Make sure the satellite receiver is Powered-off. If not, power the satellite receiver off and wait 15 seconds.
  6. Press the Info button on the front of the satellite receiver. This will bring up the “Important System Information” menu.
  7. Press the red Record button the the remote. The screen will update and the “remote address” listed on the screen will change to the new remote address of the remote control.

Dish 500 Remote Address

The new remotes that ship with Dish 500 systems (the very least a 4722 Dish 500 system comes with one) and it has some new features, and took away some others. Specifically there is no address button on the remote for changing the address if you have multiple receivers. The new process is pretty simple, but not intuitive.

To change the address do the following:

  • Press the System Info button and the Information screen will be displayed
  • Press and hold the Sat button until it starts blinking
  • Press the # you want to change the address to (1-15)
  • Press the # key and immediately press the record button.
  • This should change the address.


  1. I am having problem receiving my Cable Channels in my LCD TV. I just bought a Westinghouse 47′ LCD HDTV.

    Before this i was having Dish Network(for International Channels) + Local Cable(Comcast – for local american channels).I had plugged the Dish Cable & the Comcast cable to the Dish Receiver and a cable from the Dish receiver connected to the TV directly. SO by switching Satellite on/off on the Dish remote i was able to swap International and American channels. Now i need to do the same with the LCD TV. I was successful in connecting the Dish receiver with LCD using S-Video Cable / AV. But right now i am unable to get the American Channels(from Comcast) in my LCD TV. How do i do this ?

    Note: Dish Receiver No – 311

  2. hey i just bought a westinghouse tv, it doesnt have a code on your list and the dish remote i have is the 5.0 IR and im not really sure what the adress button is on it ive tried several. i was wandering if you could help me out.

  3. I can not get my dish remote to work with my LG tv does anyone know the code to set that up?

  4. I’ve got a television/surround component combination made by a company called “nxt” but the system is called “INSIGNIA.” Now I’ve used the power scan that the remote says and it will turn the tv off but not back on after I’ve pressed the address button. What should I do?

  5. i just got a new ir 1.5 tv remote and have a problem programing. i have a 500 dish net work system. on my old remote i could set the remote to the sat button and leave it there. by touching the aux button i could turn the tv off and on.also by hitting the power it would shut off the dish box.i have my new control sore of programed where when i turn the tv botton the power button will turn it off, but not on.hi want to program it like my old one was.

  6. I’ve got two receivers and two blue button remotes. I can change the remote address on either one of them but it seems to make no difference in requards to the power button. If both receivers are “off”, which ever remote I press the power button on turn them both “on”. Same if one is “on” and the other is “off”. If I press the power button it turns the first one “off” and the 2nd one “on”. I’m sure I’m missing something, just don’t known what. And ideas?

  7. I have a 3.0 IR dish network remote. The Sat button is stuck on red and nothing works when pressed. How do i fix this?

  8. Mike: I’m not sure how to fix that problem. Sounds like there is no discrete code for power. I’d recommend you leave both on all the time. The satellite receivers don’t really power-down when the power button is pressed, they just turn off the front panel and make the video output signal blank but they continue to consume the same amount of power as when they are on. So other than the lights going off, turning it off does nothing. That’s the best work-around I can come up with.

    Judy: Sounds like a button is stuck in the down position. See if you can wiggle it and make it un-stuck. It is probably partially depressed and stuck there. As a last resort, you can also try to take the remote apart (there is a screw under the sticker in the back and in the battery compartment.) However, it is also held together by a bunch of little plastic clips that can break-off when the clam-shell is pried apart, so be aware this it may not be as solid when you reassemble it. Also, maybe you could talk Dish into a new remote.

  9. Hello, My dish remote control simply stopped working. It lights up when button are pressed but thats it. It is not a battery problem either. To make matters more annoying i tried to re program but the TV button at the top will not light up at all. So i cannot program to begin with… Any help,, before i end up smashing the control up against the wall.

  10. Carlton,
    I feel like an idiot. Even though the receives are in different rooms every time I was progaming a remote to a receiver it was changing both of them! That’s why the power button turned them both on or off. I simply unplugged one of the receivers and reprogrammed the remote code and viola! Works like it should. Thanks for your reply. That comment about the power not really being off made my brain start working again.

  11. I hooked up a new dvd player that has surround sound. I had a difficult time doing this but I finally had sound and picture but could not change channels. I have two TV’s and is serviced by dish TV. I have DVR connection. Since I connected the equipment I have to use the same controls and can not get another channel on the second TV …I must watch whatever is programmed on TV1. When changing to single mode the TV2 only controls. I am stressing about this problem. Does anyone have a suggestion? Besides tossing a brick? Thanks Cathy

  12. dish receiver/reemote is in single mode…how do I get it back into duo-mode? Thanks

  13. We just bought a new Emerson LCD TV, model LC320EM8A. I tried every code in our manual and the codes listed on this page for an Emerson TV but have had no luck in programming the remote.I also tried the power scan, still no luck. The back of the remote has has following info:6.0 IR/UHF PRO, FCC ID: DKNFSK03, EchoStar Tech. Corp. 132578. It is the silver remote for the DVR receiver. Hope you can help me find the right code.

  14. You should change your system to DIRECTV. They will have nearly 150 HD channels by years end, and their remotes control this TV.

  15. Got the BLUE button dish network remote, and the 47″ Westinghouse tv. Don’t have a code, but was able to do the manual scan, and get a code that worked after a couple of pressing “up.” Ran the “finding the device code” sequence, and got 114 for the TV. Good luck.

  16. Did anyone ever find the remote code for the Emerson LCD TV, model LC320EM8A? I can’t believe that there isn’t one available.

  17. hey. i have a RCA universal remote and i am trying to set the remote with the dishnetwork. but i dont have a code to set it up. i cant find the code.

  18. My UHF remote for tv 2 completly stopped working as if it has never been programed. I have the remote with blue arrow and Select buttons and 4 separate mode buttons (SAT TV VCR AUX):

  19. I dont know if it has been said…but if anyone cant get their DVD player to work on the auxillary button with the 3.1 remote….. You have to press “1” not “2” , to add an AUX input that is a DVD player….then you add the code after it. The Dish Network remote manual is very specific and correct….. this site says to press 2, it didnt work for me, 1 did.

  20. apex ad-1150

    Do you have the code for an apex ad-1150 DVD player? The Apex company is no help whatsoever, can’t get past the India-speaking people.

    Thanks, Lee

  21. In regards to GABE,

    Im sure this is a bit late since you had this problem in May, but here is the solution for everyone else going through the same.

    If your remote control stops working all of a sudden but its not a battery or receiver issue:

    You need to change your remote address. (this applies to both single receivers and receivers with dual signals e.g. you have a remote with #1 on bottom, and another with #2 on bottom)

    Step 1. Walk over to your receiver (take your #2 remote with you since its prolly the one giving you problems)

    Step 2. Press MENU twice quickly.

    Step 3. You should be looking at the SYSTEM INFO screen (if you’re not, grab your remote real carefully with one hand, and SLAM into it with a hammer with your other hand)

    Step 4. You will notice that at the bottom of the screen it says PRIMARY REMOTE ADDRESS and SECONDARY REMOTE ADDRESS. There will be a little TV screen icon with a number in it.

    Step 5. Using the remote that is giving you problems, hold down the SAT button till everything blinks.

    Step 6. While the SAT button blinks away, press any number from 1-15 that isnt in one of the tv icons already (e.g. if you see that the tv icons have numbers like 1, or 2, DO NOT PRESS 1 or 2! LOL)

    Step 7. Lets say you pressed 5, well then you press the # (pound key)

    Step 8. SAT will blink 3 times all on its own

    Step 9. You press RECORD 3 times, and you will notice the number in the TV icon has changed.

    Step 10. Walk over to your refrigerator, bust out that 20 year old bottle of champagne (or applie cider or beer or maybe just some good old TANG) and drown yourself in it because you have just fixed your remote! Yay!

  22. apex ad-1150 continued…

    I got the DVD player used, obtained a “universal” remote, went through all the steps to find the code, no luck. Some codes would cause it to do some things – “Scroll Right” would play selection 3, etc.

    In the process, I accidently got into the factory settings of a Curtis RT700 TV that was running nearby, & messed up the channel inc/dec buttons. Anyone know it’s factory settings?
    Thanks for any help,

    Lee Haymond

  33. I have a dish 311 unit with the standard remote that came with the reciever. I recently purchased a Element LCD Monitor/TV and the manufacturer says to use code 627 or 659 for Dish Network. I confirmed this information at their website but when I tried both, neither works. Any suggestions?

  34. I am struggling with the same issue with My Element LCD TV. Followed the instructions in the Dish Manual and used the codes 627 and 659 and nothing happens.

    This is my remote. they give the code 593, and yours 093, for a Citizen VCR. the codes seem to be working, since the red light flashed 3 times after. I did what you said, when the redlight was flashing non-stop i pressed 593 and hold the #. the red light flashed 3 time, but the remote just don’t do nothing with my VCR. Please help.
