Frequently Asked Questions

How do I add a new receiver to DISH Network?

If you want to upgrade to a newer receiver or order one for the first time, call our number below and we’ll get the ball rolling.

If you’re getting an additional or replacement receiver and need to set it up yourself, follow these steps:

  1. Plug the receiver into a power source.

  2. Connect the cables to their matching ports (see list below).

  3. Turn on your TV and wait for the loading screen to appear. If your screen doesn’t show the name of your receiver over a black background, switch between TV inputs until you see that image.

How do I reset a DISH Network receiver?

If the power light is blinking, your receiver is trying to reset itself. Leave it alone for at least 4 hours before troubleshooting.

If your power light is not blinking, or if it’s been blinking for more than 4 hours, follow these troubleshooting steps:

  1. Press the power button to power off the receiver. Wait 10 seconds, and then press the power button again. Your receiver should reset within 5 minutes.

  2. If that doesn’t work, unplug your DISH receiver from the electrical outlet, wait 10 seconds, and then try plugging it into a different outlet or surge protector.

  3. If that doesn’t work, move the receiver to a spot that’s more ventilated and try again. Your receiver works best positioned with at least 4 inches of space on each side, in an open cabinet.

If you’re still having trouble after following these steps, call the number below so we can help you find out what’s wrong and get it fixed.
