Dish TV technician was unable to find a code to turn volume

Customer Question

Dish TV technician was unable to find a code to turn volume control on my new remote and advised me to contact Insignia to see if you have any other codes to suggest.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Insignia is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: How do I find that out? It is in a position thatwould require me to get someone to lift it out of the corner if the model is lised on the back.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Dish has just sent me the replacement remote and everything is working except the volume part of remote. 538 did work.
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems. I'm reviewing your details now and will reply shortly.

There are 3 Insignia remote codes that DISH supports- and beyond that, it would indicate their remote is not compatible with the TV (DISH decides what codes they use and what they will support). It would appear the DISH tech only tried one code. The Insignia codes for DISH are as follows:




If you're unable to get either of those other two codes to work, then I will need the full model number located on the back of the TV to dig deeper.
