Onscreen TV Guide

The Onscreen TV Guide feature no longer works. When I attempt to access it, all that appears is the channel preview window...the rest of the screen is black. Also, I cannot access the TV Guide settings. Everything else functions normally.

Re: Onscreen TV Guide

TVGUIDE caused this problem when they began doing their conversion to digital. I can help you with this. You need the "EPK" file to upgrade the VCHIP. If you email me I can forward you the file and you will have acess to your TV GUIDE functions again it will take a few minutes. You will need an SD memory card to put the file on and put it in your TV..

Re: Onscreen TV Guide

The same problem occurred on my TV about the same time. I would be interested to know if you ever found a solution.

Can i run a channel scan on a toshiba model number 32HL66 without a remote

You should be able to access all features with the menu button on the TV itself. You make selections on the menu with either the Volume or the Channel buttons. On screen instructions should guide you.

I have dish network and am trying to watch tv on my gateway plasma. how do i connect my satelite cable to plasma to get picture?

We would like to guide you through the connection process,but depending on what kind of receiver and TV you have this process may vary.Visit our "How to connect receiver" page here:

Once we have everything connected correctly, check what channel or input yourTV is currently on by powering the TV off then back on and noting the channelor input that appears on screen when the TV is powered on.

Steps for getting picture on TV1:
If you are using a Coax Cable to connect the receiver to TV1, check thereceiver's back panel for the output name. If your receiver has a "TVCH 3/4 out" (non-ViP Receiver): Tune TV to channel 3 or channel4, if it has "Home Distribution" output (ViP Receiver):Tune TV to channel 62 or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA,Component, or HDMI) to connect receiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs untilpicture appears (this information may appear on the remote sticker), mostTVs have a "TV/Video", "Input", or "Source" button.

Steps for getting picture on TV2:
Access "Modulator Setup" from TV1 by pressing "menu"then 6-1-5. Tune TV2 to the channel that appears under "TV2 Out" onscreen. If still no picture, change the "TV2 Out" mode fromAir to Cable, or if it's already on Cable, change it to Air. Then change thechannel of TV2 to what is now displayed under "TV2 Out".
If the issue is only on ONE receiver, unplug the DISH receiver for10 seconds and plug back in. It may take up to 5 minutes for the reset processto be completed. If you still are not getting a picture, connect anothercomponent (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) to the same TV, using same cable, same input,and same channel to see if it works. If it works give us a call at1-800-333-DISH (3474) for additional troubleshooting, if you don't get apicture with the other component, replace the cable.

Hope this steps help, and thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

My Pioneer PDP-4280HD Plasma - Have never been able to get the TV Guide feature to work. Only some of the set up screens are shown in the manual. Can someone help? I see the feed of channels, which is...

My research into your set and its TV Guide feature brought up two points that may be relevant:

  1. It apparently takes about 24 hours for the guide to load up completely. This would make it difficult to get real-time info as to whether it was working or not.
  2. 'TV Guide' may not work will all providers, and may not work as providers switch to digital. Have you spoken to your provider about possible compatibility?

I hope that helps

(Built in) TV GUIDE Screen is black except for small channel preview window on top-left.

After purchasing a "service remote" and then buying a new "Main Board-Analog" which didn't fix the problem, I spoke with tech support who then emailed me an "EPK" file. Basically the computer board inside the television needed to be updated since this whole digital conversion is happening.. However this incident has given me tremendous knowledge of what to do and how to troubleshoot and how to reset my own TV with all the hidden menus that you never knew you had. Don't be tricked into buying a mainboard or even paying a diagnostic fee. If your TV GUIDE screen goes blank and all you see is a small channel preview screen in the top left corner, chances are all you need is the EPK file update. I received the update file in my email, I downloaded it to an SD card, inserted the SD card into my 32LX1D LG LCD TV and it did the rest. It was too easy. Most newer LG TV's are coming with a "SERVICE USB" so you can attach a "jumpdrive" or some other storage to it. These so called "Authorized Service Centers" are a hoax. WHen you bring your TV into them they charge you a "diagnostic fee" ranging from $50-$150 just to diagnose it, then they tell you that that can also be applied to the cost of the repair. All the service center does is call a special priviledged tech support 800# for LG to find out what to do. I've replaced and removed my own Main board. You gotta learn the game people, its all a big game to keep the revenue coming long after the sale of the TV. Which is why nowadays automobiles are manufactured with parts that were made to break intentionally to keep bringing you back.

Tv guide on our LG tv

If, when selecting the guide, the entire screen is black (except for the preview in the corner), then the digital main board has gone bad and will need replaced.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Time TV

By saying that volume and picture controls work, do you mean you can access the TV's onscreen menu? If so, you may need to re-scan for available channels if you are using the TV's internal tuner. If the memory of those channels has been lost, the TV does not know where to "look" for a signal. You may also need to perform a power drain:

1. Unplug the product's power cable so that the device is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off the power-bar if one is in use.
2. Press and hold in the products power button for 1 minute to release the retained electricity from the capacitors and circuit board.
3. Plug the product back into the wall outlet rather than a power-bar to rule it out of contributing to the problem and turn the device back on. After this step, try the channel scan again if it didn't resolve the issue the first time.

Screen frozen

Un plug the power to the Plasma Screen and also to the Media Receiver for ten minutes. Disconnect the off the air antennas both A and B. After ten minutes plug in the plasma screen then the media receiver and turn on wi the remote control. You should now be back in operation. I was.
Also It may not be a bad digital tuner. The TV Guide feature is active even when the zip code is set to all 0s so if you have an over the air antenna attached the TV will look for the TV Guide info and if it can not find it because of a weak signal or the chanel it is tuned to does not carry that information the TV thinks that tuner does not work which triggers the 12 flashes. Also on power up the gray box with the waring message "Plasma Display Starting Up, Please Wait" appears and the screen is blank.
