This is a really difficult problem to answer correctly on the first try but here we go. Some tvs will not recognize the introduction of a new component without unplugging the tv for about 30 seconds with the component connected and powering the tv back on. The issue I believe Dish was trying to convey was to make sure the port you plug the receiver into is turned on in the tv menu. Since the dvd works in any of them this seems to be the case. I f you have further difficulties you should contact the tv manufacturer for assistance as they are more familiar with teaching the tv to communicate with the receiver than Dish personell will be in most cases.

How do I set the T.V.? I have Dish Network. A message comes up stating "No Signal".


You need to have the input on the TV set to what ever the "Dish" cable uses. If the dish box uses HDMI then find which HDMI port it is plugged into on the TV and set the input to that.

No signal in all 4 hdmi ports on th new samsung 6050. Tried running from Sony receiver and then direct format uverse cable box. Still no signal. It is as if there is a compatibility problem. Help!


I would try connecting a dvd player to one of the HDMI input on the tv to be sure the tv is the problem.Try new HDMI cable 1.3 version. ATT uverse boxes are alway a source of problems and I would assume it was bad before I would condem the tv. If the tv is bad and it is under warranty an authorized servicer will replsce the main board.

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.

Snow on tv cant get bk to pic


Hi nelle_king my name is MikeHouston of DISH Network. There are a couple things we can do to get thatpicture back. What you will need to do is make sure the TV is on channel 3 orthe right input, and if the picture is still snowy and we are on the correctchannel/input you will need to reset the receiver by unplugging it for 10seconds and plugging it back in. After you plug it back in it will power up byitself and you should see the DISH Network screen. I will send the steps tohelp with the setup. b> # Sequentially follow the below steps until problem is resolved or until instructed to skip to another step 1 Verify HDMI Connections Verify HDMI cables are connected from the DISH receiver HDMI Out to the HDMI In of the Revue, and the HDMI Out of the Revue to the HDMI In of the TV. 2 Reset Revue and DISH Receiver Unplug both the Revue and DISH receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in. It may take up to 5 minutes for the reset process to be completed. 3 Check Receiver-to-TV Configuration Check that the wiring between your DISH receiver and your TV is configured properly using http://www.dish.com/wiring. 4 Secure Receiver-to-TV Connections Check that the connections between your DISH receiver, your TV, and any component(s) (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) in between are secure. 5 Bypass Revue Bypass the Revue and directly connect the DISH receiver to the TV using an HDMI cable.

Hi! I have just tuned in a new TV. However, the channel menu does not offer the numbers 3 to 8 including ITV< Chanels 4 & 5. What do I do now?


julietterobi

If this is a new TV, you could run an auto scan so the TV can find the channel it needs to get the satellite signal. What type cable is connected between the TV and receiver. For a coax cable, the TV would be on channel 3/4 (usually 3). For an RCA (yellow, white, red) cable, component (green, blue, red, white, red) cable, or HDMI, the TV would be on an Input setting. I hope this helps.

Unhooked all lines in back of tv cant remember to rehook up have2


granmabj,

There are common connections to each receiver but there are unique connections also depending on the receiver. Solo receivers have a coax cable coming from the Dish outside connected to Satellite In. Duo receivers and DVR HD receivers have the coax cable that comes from the dish outside that connects to Satellite 1 and Satellite 2 using a splitter. There is also a cable (coax, RCA (yellow, white, red) or component (green, blue, red - video, white, red - audio) or an HDMI if HD) connected from the receiver to the TV 1. For a duo receiver TV 2 may be backfed on the cable coming from the dish outside using diplexers. This may sound confusing but you can call 1-800-333-3474 for assistance.

Connecting an a/v receiver to a Dish network receiver


DO you have manuals for all the units listed?
If not , try the Samsung consumer site.
It would take me quite a while to figure out your situation even with manuals and I have a business to run besides.

Also, ask some questions of Tech Support at Samsung..Let them KNOW how much you spent on their stuff.

God bless,

New TV hookup


Erica,
You should have no problem with this. I have provided a picture of your model below for clarification. One end of the coax will attach to the 3-4 OUT on the back of the receiver and the other end will go to the NEW tv's coax input. If your set has two coax inputs you may have to select the port that you connect to in the menu portion of the tv. If the new tv does not have a coax input you can use RCA jacks which are red/white and yellow and connect those to the TV 1 output on the back of the receiver and the other end to one of the inputs on the back of the tv- this will require you to select the input source you connect to again e.g AUDIO 1, AUDIO2 etc. If you have a VCR run the coax from the 3-4 on the back of the receiver to the antenna inon the back of the VCR -usually the top port, then run another coax from the output- bottom port to the coax input on your tv. I hope I have been of some assistance to you and Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can assist you further please let me know.
