Question about Hitachi 53SWX12B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Black out My Hitachi tv just started acting up about a week or 2. At frist I thought maybe it was my satalite dish, but now I'm not so sure. It blacks out almost the whole screen leaving about an 1 1/2 around the edges where you can still see the show but it stays on and won't go away. I have turned the tv off, and then back on again, but it eventually happens again. My husband tried to see what he could do, but we don't want to complicate things. I hope I have given you enough info! Thank you! Lilraidersteph

No,the Dish Network satalite box signals require it own remote for it INFER RED INPUT and INFER RED OUTPUT signals.Call Dish Network customer service ask for a another original Dish Network remote.U pay $5 or $6 dollars a month for the satalite box as rental.They should wave the fee or charge u very little for a another remote.

1. Hold down the clear TV button until all lights light up at the top of the remote
2. Punch in a 3 digit code (provided below)
3. Press the # (POUND) button
4. Try powering the tv on/off, and the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over from step 1 with a different code

Not tracking satalite.

If you can hear the dish actually serching when it says "searching", there is a good possibility that you have a bad LNB on the dish. Unfortunately, this is not the only thing that can cause the problem. Your best bet is to call KVH @ 4018473327. Make sure you are on the boat when you call and they will run you through all of the programming checks to narrow down your issue. Good luck.
