Two choices: don't let grandson play/use remote, don't let wife wash dishes! :laughing:
(Other wise, dry out the remote and call DISH and tell them it doesn't work. Don't volunteer that it took a bath!)
For future cleaning --- use (alcohol content) wet wipes to clean the remote exterior. :dance1:
Or, put it inside a plastic bag.
Look up the model number on Ebay. I bought a couple of them last year. It even comes with a easy to follow instructions sheet to reprogram the remote to the TV and receiver.
Dish has replaced my remote and DVR free of charge several times but I dont know if we have the maintenance agreement or not. When looking at a replacement, look on the back at the top and look at the xx IR number. Mine are 20.1IR and 20.3IR and they only control the receiver that they are linked to.
i doubt it would work.. the dish remote is uhf and ir
in any case.. called em today while I was at home for lunch.. told them the remote didn't work.. they said they'd send me a new one.. didn't mention a charge?
did say I'd have to do some song and dance to program it to the rcvr though.
will see.. :)
They will send you one,but they need to know if its infra red,or through the walls, remote one or remote two. if remote one or remote two is set up for infra red,then all the remotes on one or two must be infra-red, no mixing. I just went through all this with dish after relocating my reciever to the downstairs den.
