    Hello, people.

    As you might know, sometimes remote controls get a little ugly and, even if they work perfectly and nothing is wrong with them, it would feel nice to have it replaced.

    So the best tactic I have is to tell Dish that the lights on the mote just died, and that the batteries are new and in the correct position.

    This way you'll get a new remote anytime you want.

    I ordered one when mine died, but I saw the same remote on Amazon for $15. I ordered a spare. I have also seen ones like new or new at our local Goodwill store for $3. I have a vip211k.

    I'm usually opening it and do clean up of rubber pads and PCB contacts include battery's terminals. Plastic spatula is cheap and useful tool for the man's job !
