When your Direct TV based units say that a channel is "not available" when you know that you had been receiving them on a regular basis you probably have a problem with the activation card. Sometimes the unit will lose it's communication with the satelite and it will not restore it when the signal reappears. This is probably a software issue but happens so rarely no one wants to fix it.
If all the other menus and parameters of the system appear to be working the problem probably lies with the activation card. For many reasons the card can become unusable and cause the system to not work. Generally though it is caused by a glitch in the software. As the unit continually reacquires the satelite or satelites, it must execute instructions just like your computer. We all know that computers are prone to failure so why not satelite dish receivers.
The solution involves removing the card then reinserting it and hitting the reset button near the card slot. This will cause the unit to reboot and re-acquire the satellite and all the programming. By forcing the unit to reboot it must read the information from the card and reload the software. Once reloaded the software will no longer have any glitches in it and should work as it is supposed to.
This should solve your problem. If it does not you may need to call your satelite provider.

Glitches in tv display are usually caused by an irregularity in the cable this irregularity could be in the form of poor connection somewhere or partly broken cables or even partial contact. get an expert to examine the cables which are used to connect the satelite from end to end as well as the RF input to the TV. Hope this solution has been helpful?
check sat in cable, if cracks or breaks in line can cause sfss. also on back of receiver you want to make sure that sat in cable has a little copper wire sticking straight up and that its getting a good connection on the back of the receiver.
CC is a function of your cable box in this case. TV's have the feature as well, but Bose is right about not all HDMI devices supporting CC through HDMI, especially converting from component to HDMI before hitting your TV. The solution: call your cable provider for this. Start at the source. The cables you use or the TV won't 'take away' closed caption if it's already there.
If you hooked up the satelite box to your tv Automaticly the Satelite box is the one who pick up the channels (from the satelite)
In this case your tv is acting as a monitor only. Try to connect your tv with HDMI cable or COMPONENT cable for best picture. Don't use RF antenna input to hook up your Satelite Box. Hope this Helps
I have never seen this tv have a problem that turns the picture all green. What is signal source, (cable or satelite) and are you using component cables? Make sure your cables are good and that they are plugged in properly on both ends as a defec or loose component cable or a bad cable or satelit receiver can cause this problem.
