Depends what tv stations decide to use and send the signal as. Not really dish networks choice, its the station itself.

SOURCE: Picture in high def does not fill screen

That is normal. Most HDTV's have a format or picture size option on the remote or menu. It will give you options like full, stretch ot zoom to fill in the blank spots. The problem is those settings can also distort the picture size so people look funny.

SOURCE: Pink Screen on Vizio 37 inch with HDMI Connection

Hi,
I work as a contract technician for Vizio, and I can tell you from experience that replacing motherboard is one of the only solutions to this problem. The other solution if under warranty is to replace it. If you experience red, blue, or green pixels where dark shades (like nose, eyes, clothes, etc), call Vizio and accept nothing less than a full replacement! I have had situations where I replaced motherboard and within 2-3 hours the pixels return. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Vizio won't turn off

This could be a mainboard problem. Sometimes one of the fuses may be bad and may freeze up causing the TV to not be able to power off.

SOURCE: Vizio 32'' VO320E Image Distortion

Hi,

I hope not but:
this is probably a failure from the screen or the electronic parts that control the videosignals.
i think having a specialist or the tecnical service from vizio taking a look at it will be best and safest.


Hope this is helpful, and greetings,

Olivier.

I have no signal,what can I check?


OK Joan,, I might need more info. not getting signal could be caused from several things.. one make sure the Dish Antenna is mounted correctly, (level, and true, [one degree off on earth is like 700 miles off at the Satellite.]) check you cables and make sure they is now wire touching the center core of the coax. if the coax has splitters, connections etc outside check for the corrosion inside the threads.
make sure the coax coming into the house is connected to the right place on back of the 222k. make sure u are on the right Video stream for the HDMI. are u getting any picture showing the Dish set up or is the screen all Blue.. if it is blue try to use the remote that came with ur TV (RCA, Vizio, Phillips,,,,etc) and look for the input, source , or Antenna button and push it to match your HDMI input..

Picture problem on panasonic Vierra plasma tv


It looks like you are saying standard definition pictures do not cover the screen like HD pictures do. Standard def is formatted 4:3 and high def is 16:9. They are not the same so your high def screen is made to display the not as tall but wider high def picture. In order to fill the screen with the taller and not as wide 4:3 aspect ratio std def picture you must tell the TV to stretch the picture or otherwise fill the screen.The TV will have controls you can exercise for this purpose and you can set it up to always show std def in a particular manner. The alternative, if you want the standard Def picture to look true to form, is to view standard def in Letter Box form. It's appearance will then include black panels on the sides of the picture. So the problem is not with the TV but in accepting older format pictures playing on newer format displays (TVs.)

Upgraded to Hd and tv started messing up. Double images for first 10 minutes and sometimes tv picture goes off and lines up and down.


Your HDTV is capable of up to 1080P resolution. SDTV (standard def) signals are 480i; EDTV (enhanced def) is 480P; HDTV are 720P, (there is no 720i) 1080i and 1080P. Generally, those modes ending in "P" look better than those ending in "i". 1080i is the highest possible for broadcast TV, but BluRay disks and Directv have 1080P display capabilities.

The double picture you're describing sounds like the TV is set to display only standard or enhanced def signals while the Dish Network box is supplying it with HD signals. You should locate the control for the TV's resolution and make sure it is set to "1080P" and then set the output of your Dish Network set top box to the highest output it offers. Do the same for your BluRay player and any other devices, too.

Once set correctly, you should have a great picture once again. I hope this helps & good luck!

We have dish network. the problem is the picture doesn't fill the screen. it just shows up in a small box. what can i try?


On your DISH remote press the format button with an asterisk on it if this doesn't correct the issue try the page up and page down buttons to the right of the volume. If neither of these correct the issue reply with your receiver model number and we can go from there!

bestone890,

Go into the Main Menu. From there go to System Setup (6) -> HDTV Setup (8). Make TV Type 1080i and Aspect Ratio 16x9 and select Done. Your picture should now be showing a HD picture.

I have my tv hooked to a hd dish network sat box but I i only receive 480p instead of 1080p.


Hello there!!! There are a few reasons this could be. The first step would be to check how the hd is set up on the receiver. Press Menu 6-8. You will want to make sure that the Tv Type says 1080p. If this does not work, make sure that you are, of course, using an HDMI cable, or component cables. If you are having any other troubles with this, you can e-mail me at becki.barned@dishnetwork.com.

We hooked our Sony kp43ht20 to dishnetwork. Now the screen is not full screen. How do we make it full screen again? And where is the ratio button to change to 1080?


Is this hooked to a high definition dish network? If so there is a format button on the remote to change the picture size. As far as changing it to 1080 it will only broadcast in what it sees if it is not in high def it can't broadcast in hi def.

Dish VIP 612 breaks up when playing back recorded shows.


Edy, I am not going to say that this is the definite issue but Dish only has receivers that are 1080i compatible at the time which will give you some blurring and possible pixellating. 1080p will resolve these issues in the future. Therefore if you still need help let me know.
