How to set display to 1080p on Hisense F42K20E?


You don't. The TV has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels; so it's already 1080p. The number of pixels can't be changed.

What you're probably getting mixed up with is the TV showing the resolution of the incoming signal when you change channels or go to a different source. Standard definition from cable might be flagged as 480i. DVD might show either as 480i, or 480p, or maybe 720p or 1080i or 1080p if you have a scaling DVD player and set it appropriately. HDTV on cable or satellite will show as 1080i or possibly 720p. Blu-rays and PS3/XBox 360 or PS4/Xbox One should show as 1080p when your TV is connected.

Whatever the source signal resolution, the TV will scale it up to fill the panel area of 1920x1080 pixels. So the TV is always using all the pixels, regardless of the resolution of the source signal.

How do i change the quality of the picture ? right know it is set at 480i sd. i want to change it to 1080i.


You do not change the resolution at the TV, it is the video sources that dictates what the TV will display, 480p in = 480p display.
What are you feeding it with?
It works the same way as your computer display, the resolution is set by the PC not at the monitor. TY is just a monitor with Tuner.

I need to reset the screen resolution from 480 dpi to 1080 dpi


The TV does not have resolution setting adjustment, it works the same way as the PC monitor which the resolution is done on the PC, same for TV. If you feed it with 480p signal, it will display 480p, if you feed it with 1080I it will display 1080i. The video source dictates the TV display resolution.
What kind of video sources are you feeding the TV with?

How to change from 480i to 1080i


The TV has a automatic scalier chip installed so it depends on the input signal that you are using. For example you are using a HDMI connection with a xbox 360 and you set the display setting to 720P then the TV will display it in 720P. If you set it to 480P then it will display it in 480P.

Sound Noise Using HDMI Cable


The first solution was to use the remote controls on the recorders and shuttle from 480p to 720p to 1080i.

The other solution was to run left and right audio cables from the output of the DVD recorder to the audio inputs of the tv. Then, go into the setup menu of the recorder and tell it not to output sound using the HDMI cable.

The first solution has to be done each time the machines are turned on for the first times of a day.

The second solution fixes the problem once and for all....

The display only goes between normal and zoom


This is an EDTV capable of 1080i over component cables. It will also display 480p & 720p. Most likely its the video source determing the resolution you are seeing.
