The OSD (on screen menu) is locked. Those two serials (not models) are for two completely different tv's: the first is for an very old standard 32 inch CRT and the second for an old plasma.
To unlock it in the first tv you need to just press the menu button for 10 seconds. For the second tv you must start the tv and immediately press both the menu and channel up buttons for 5 seconds.
You need a receiver for each TV you want to receive the reception on. Your dish receives the broadcast signal from the network and your receiver decodes and recodes the signal to view on your TV. The companies have created their own proprietary equipment to accomplish this to keep anyone and everyone from simply installing their own dish and receiving all of their broadcast channels for FREE. In the olden days when satellite and cable TV was new, that is exactly what people did. Remember those gigantic dishes some people installed in their yards? They would intercept the signals coming from the satellites and hook up directly to their TVs. The companies got smart and started to scramble the signals going up to the satellites to make these home owner dishes obsolete. Because the signals are scrambled, you now need a receiver to un-scramble the signal. I hope this helps and good luck. Please remember to vote if you found this helpful. Thanks.
First locate your warranty card: which you got when you purchased your tv. Fill up the details like date of purchase and model or identification number. It may also be required to present the proof and place of purchase along with the signature of the dealer. Next pack the tv in the original packing along with all the accessories you received out of the box. Write a letter to the manufacturer about the problem. Add all the details like when the problem appears and what the tv does. Send it to the designated address (located on the warranty card or the manual). An alternative way is to directly go to the place of purchase and your dealer will do the rest.
I am not sure what a FIOS use, but I was able to split my cable connection and was connect my regular TV AND portable tv with the cable.
IN YOUR CASE:
Look at your fios set up box, behind the box, there should be something that would say "TO TV" or "VIDEO OUT" or "TO TV/VCR"
Usually, the cable coming out from there goes to your regular TV. So instead of your regular TV, you can connect that with your portable TV.
AS FOR MY CASE (Having 2 tv's),
1. I removed the cable that is connected to the wall (RF IN or From WALL or CABLE IN).
2. I hooked that end to the "IN" part of a 3 way splitter
3. I bought a short cable and connected one end to the Cable Box and the other end to the OUT of the splitter
4. I bought a longer cable and connected one end to the portable TV and the other end to the OUT of the splitter.
5. Then I turned on the TV and pressed MENU
6. I clicked the right arrow until I see ANTENNA. I pressed the down button to choose CATV instead of AIR.
7, I did auto scanning.
My portable TV now has the basic channel while the big TV (since it is connected to the cable box) has the added digital channels. Nevertheless, it is great to have both so when I want to sleep, my hubby can just use the small tv
Try to reset first if nothing happens we proceed another solution;
Resetting the TV
