Provided you did not make any changes to the cabling through out the house there is no reason that you would have lost satellite signal except if something is in front of the dish, some one moved the dish e.g. child bumping into it if it is on a pole, or there is a major storm in your area e.g. blizzard, hurricane etc. You also may have snow build up that may have caused this issue or a form of wildlife that has decided to use the dish as a perch and is blocking the LNB's. The most likely result would be trying to split a signal that is coming from the dish going to another satellite receiver or the multi-switch. There are a few ways to get a signal to that TV.
1. RESTORE THE SYSTEM TO ITS ORIGINAL CONFIGURATION.
2. Either come off the multi-switch in the attic or outside the home and run new lines to the new receiver if you have one for this TV.
3. You can run new lines from the dish to the new TV if your system has an available port(s).
4. This is the least preferred by most homeowners as it will result in two tvs viewing the same programming- You can put a splitter into the line going from a receiver to the tv and run one of the out ports to the new tv and the other back to the original tv.
I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

Sharp aquos tv lost blue tones


Examine the set with the color OFF and if No blue (odd problem) check hookup----component uses red, green and blue cables and if blue cable is bad and signal is from component on a box---box could be bad.

Easy way to know---hook DVD etc to a rear inputs= still no blue?

Unless the tv has a VGA input, or the laptop has a HDMI output, I am afraid you are going through too many conversions to make this work.

New flat screen hdtv has a fuzzy picture


Yes you will get a better picture quality out of a cable box if you get an HD cable box.
The reason you are getting the diminished picture is due to the signal you are feeding the TV is an analog signal. The newer HD TV's are made for digital TV and this older technology shows all its flaws on this type of TV.

When you get the new box understand that the same channels you are getting plugged directly into the tv are still going to have some grainy look to them but the good thing is that a lot of them are starting to be rebroadcast on HD channels and that is where your new toy will truly shine.

Enjoy your new TV...

Good Luck...

DVD/VCR hook up to HDTV. No audio on DVD or VCR, no video on VCR


When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes

New Sharp Aquos LCD 46 TV


If you hooked up the satelite box to your tv Automaticly the Satelite box is the one who pick up the channels (from the satelite)
In this case your tv is acting as a monitor only. Try to connect your tv with HDMI cable or COMPONENT cable for best picture. Don't use RF antenna input to hook up your Satelite Box. Hope this Helps
