RC73 not pairing with receiver

Been pressing and holding mute and ENTER, green light flashes and the backlit directv power button on the receiver flashes. This goes on for several seconds and then the green light flashes red and nothing happens. The 2 minutes on the screen count down to zero and no success message comes.

Plenty of “views” not a lot of responses. *sigh*

If you can't resynchronize by pressing MUTE + ENTER for several seconds, then it's time to try a new remote.  They're cheap on Amazon.
