I have bought the old decoder and need to set up the satellite dish. I had signal for approx one minute, then lost it. What is the angles in azimuth and height to set up the dish?


The angle and azimuth depend on the position of the satellite. Contact any technician. Gopakumar Gopalan Google
It is not easy to predict the exact angle and azimuth. You should have a signal meter to proceed.

Flat Screen Insignia TV picture too big? How to adjust picture size?


When the picture is too large there are three possible solutions at least.

Starting with the simplest two: There are buttons on the remote controls (cable/satellite and television) that control the picture size. On the cable remote it is usually on the bottom, and it says hd zoom. Press it and it will size the picture down for you. On the television or satellite remote it might say view mode, picture mode, format or aspect.

Now, the more difficult solution if the above doesn't work: The settings might not be right in the cable box/set top box. If the television is a 720p television, make sure the cable box/set top box is set for 720p and not 1080i even though they're the same (yes, yes I know). Also make sure you are not connecting a cable/set top box to the coaxial rf input when you have the capability to connect to a component or hdmi cable. I hope this helps.

Screen view area or size, font and channel logo are too large and outside the viewing area, how do we reset ?


Using your cable remote or satellite tv remote as well as the one that came with the television itself. Press the hd zoom # button on the cable remote. Satellite tv remotes will have format or aspect. For satellite tv receivers you may have to go into the menu on the satellite tv box to adjust the picture format i.e. 1080i crop and etc.

Make sure you have the television on the right input for hd and that the cable box or satellite receiver is displaying 1080 i.

My olevia 42 in the imagen is biger than the screemI don't see complete the head


Hello Bernie - Using your remote, press the Menu button, move to the right to the Screen menu, On this menu go down and choose Aspect. Here you have four options, Full, 4:3, 16:9 and Panorama.

Depending on your source material one of these will give you the image you want for what you are watching.

If you're watching TV through a cable or satellite box then there will be similar settings in that set-top box that will also affect screen settings. Not knowing if you are using a STB or what kind I can't help you directly with that. If what I suggested doesn't help and you are using cable or satellite call your providers tech support to learn how to change those settings.

Pleasant viewing and thanks for asking Fix Ya.

I cant reset parental controls


Activated by a PIN number, you can set Parental Controls on your TV and/or cable set-top box to control the programs that can be viewed on your TV. There are three ways to block programs:

  • By Channel
  • By Rating
  • By Time Period (Not available in all areas.)
The V-Chip understands television program ratings and blocks programs based upon the rating level selected. All TV sets that are 13 inches or larger are required to incorporate the V-Chip technology. Parents set rating levels so that certain TV shows need a password to be viewed. For more information on the V-Chip and program ratings visit the FCC V-Chip site.
Several cable and satellite companies offer parental control options. They allow specific channels to be blocked so that they cannot be viewed.These companies also offer the ability to block shows based on language, violence, nudity, and rating levels. This offers more flexibility than the V-Chip.

Hope it helps ;-)

THE AUTO FOCUS NEED TO BE FIXED BUT I DONT HAVE A REMOTE?


There is no way to adjust the view mode on this television without a remote control. There is a view mode button on the remote control. However if you have a cable box/satellite receiver dvr attached to this television adjusting the resolution, making sure the tv is on the correct input for hd from a receiver box, and pressing the hdzoom#, format or aspect button on the receiver remote should resize the picture. You have to play around with those settings to get a desirable size picture.

I think my kids have pushed a button and the screen is got borders on the side and picture condenssed


If you have cable or satellite and a cable box or satellite box it is probably its remote. Look for the hd zoom # button or format button or aspect button to change the picture size.

Someone may have also changed the input on the television. Your cable or satellite box might be connected to two different inputs on your television so you have to make sure the right television input has been chosen with the television remote.

There should be a zoom, view mode, aspect or etc button or setting on your television that adjusts picture size.

Some television programs just broadcast like that and there is nothing you can do while that particular program is on to increase the picture size.

The picture takes up only 2/3rds of the screen. I've gone through the menu and settings and can't seem to fill the screen with wide zoom, full, or any other settings. Help!


I don't know if this will help. If you are using a cable box or satellite receiver they too might have a format, zoom button, or view mode. It seems like they all have different names for them.Good luck.
