Is there a DISH picture on the TV screen?
If you have already connected your new TV and have a DISH picture on the screen, the only remaining step is to program the remote.
If there isn't a DISH picture on the screen yet, continue setup with the steps below.
Is there a manufacturer picture on the TV screen?
If your TV is displaying a manufacturer setup screen, follow the instructions that came with the TV to complete manufacturer setup before continuing with these steps.
If you are unable to complete the manufacturer setup, please contact the manufacturer of your TV.
Connect receiver-to-TV wiring
Different video cable types are shown below. Connect your video cable to the back of the TV and make sure it is connected tightly at the receiver as well.
Remember, if using component cables, you will also need to connect audio cables, like the red and white RCA cables.
Power on TV and additional equipment
If the screen is black, make sure your TV is powered on.
If you are using an audio receiver or other device (VCR/DVD/etc.) connected between the TV and DISH receiver, power it on as well.
On your DISH receiver, is the green light on steady?
If there is no green light on the front of your DISH receiver, press and release the power button on the front of the receiver. If the light is blinking or will not come on, troubleshoot the problem with the receiver's power.
Press the SAT button
On your DISH remote, press and release the SAT button.
Change your TV input
On your TV manufacturer's remote or the TV itself, locate the Input button (may also be labeled Source).
Press the Input (or Source) button repeatedly, pausing two seconds between presses. Stop when you see a DISH picture on the screen, or when you have cycled through all available inputs.
The correct input may match cable type identified above (HDMI cable will often have input HDMI1, HDMI2, etc.).
Program your DISH remote
Once you have a DISH picture on the screen, the only remaining step is to program the remote.
If there is no DISH picture on the screen, continue to the next step.
Please contact your TV manufacturer for assistance setting up your new TV. If you have already contacted the manufacturer, contact us for further assistance.
