Question about Generic Hisense 42" Class LED-LCD 1080p 60Hz HDTV,1.5" ultra-slim F42K20E

Open Question

F42k20e shows no signal

Just got this Hisense F42K20e. Hooked it up, and it's not recognizing the cable input: says "No signal!" Cable was working fine hooked up to older TV, so it's not the cable input. It gets input from a ROKU box and an Xbox 360, looks fine, but nothing from the cable, or from the DVD player running through the cable box. Is it possible that it's anything OTHER than a bad connection on the Hisense?

    Problem solved: It is a refurb, and had not been re-set to factory defaults. Once I did that, everything fell into place.

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.

Why does my new 42

Who is your Video service Provider? Cable or satellite? I would suspect a bad cable first by changing your cables. if this doesn't solve your problem you may have a bad cable or satellite box, but check your connections and or change cables for a new set.
