SOURCE: no channel available

Unplug it for 10 secs and plug it back in then wait 10 more seconds and turn it on with the on/off switch. Unplugging makes it reload the firmware, but on/off does not. If that doesn't work try a factory reset. For my Panasonic you do this. Open front door to get at the buttons. Turn TV off. Press and hold the OK button and at the same time press and HOLD the on/off switch for about 3 secs. You should get a self check screen that will last a little while and then the TV will go to the menu screen.

SOURCE: Get HD Signals but it Says Channels not available

Try checking to see whether your input is set correctly. If you have composite cables connecting your cable box and television, make sure the input is either Comp1 or Comp2. Same thing if you're using HDMI.

SOURCE: "channel not available, no signal" message

on the front of the satellite box, does it have a door that you can open, if so, after opening the door on the inside does it have a red reset button. press the red reset. if no reset unplug for 15 seconds and plug back in. also if its on all channels, and resetting it doesnt work may need to reprogram the satellite. if resetting doesnt work contact satellite provider to reprogram.

SOURCE: my tv comes on and has "unusable signal" floating on it

What is your signal source, OTA or cable? Did lightning or another type of power surge recently hit? Make sure you have the TV on the desired input.

If OTA check your antenna direction and that you have the Channel Setup (from the menu) set to Antenna. Also check if you have the right antenna to get stations in your area. Antennaweb.org gives the most likely channels and directions. tvfool.com will give more detailed information and more stations. Both sites assume outdoor antennas but the direction information is always good. Look for new construction or big trees that might block the signal. Do you have multiple TVs sharing the same antenna? You might need an amplifier.

If cable, check the Channel setup. Check for someone recently damaging your cable installation (cutting the wires, trying to split the signal to get it for free) Splitting the signal to multiple TVs may also be an issue, get an amplifier of the correct type. Some cable systems may require a bidirectional amplifier.

If you recently had a power surge, see if the TV works with other inputs.
Tuners can be replaced if the TV is worth the labor costs for you.

I hope this helps.

( My household had three tvs and a digital to analog converter that lost their tuners after a nearby lightning strike. We chose to replace the TVs since two were over 15 years old and the third was also out of warranty.)

Hi. The HDCP error happens when your HDMI connection or TV are not up to HDCP compliance. Two things you can try to fix this are to reset your TV itself buy unplugging the power cable for 10 sec. You can also reset your HDMI connection but unplugging the HDMI cable for 10 sec. If you are still having this issue after these resets, please email us as socialmedia@dish.com.

Can i hook up an old tube type tv to a new high satellite dish? i dont care if i get high def picture just want a regular picture.


Yes there is an option for ouptuting 480i signal from most hd receivers. You will need to check the specifics for the satellite dish receiver as to the channel that the TV should be on as well as how to set it to the resolution that you need. (I know some Dish receivers need channel 60 for the SD TV (coax (RF) connection) when it is TV 2 but channel 3 or 4 for TV 1.) Also check your TV so that you can use the best possible input available.

However, you may not be able to read the closed captions unless you enable them on the receiver. (Apparently, the encoding has changed.)

The manuals for some satellite company receivers are on their website. For example, Dish network manuals are here: http://www.dishnetwork.com/supportsection/manuals . Their manual for the Solo VIP 211k describes connecting the receiver to a SD TV on page 91 (page 97 in the PDF version).

I hope this helps.

(I'm not aware of any satellite system that doesn't use a set-top box. If you do not have a receiver, then the above does not apply and you may not be able to get a signal.)

Tv screen just says searching for a signal the DVR sounds like it is running


Hi, my name is Cheri Torres with DISH Network CustomerService. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could help. I do have afew questions I would like to ask you just to get a better idea of what issueyour receiver may be having. I would first like to know if your receiver hasany lights on the front of it. If the receiver does not have any lights on thefront you are going to want to try unplugging the receiver from the powersource outlet for 10 seconds then plug it back in. Does your screen havinganything else on it besides searching for signal? Usually if it is a DISHNetwork error message you will see a three digit number in the top rightcorner. It could possibly be that your television is not on the correct channelor input in order to get the DISH Network picture. You can try changing your TVto channel 3/4 and also try going through all available inputs to see if youmight see a picture on a different one. I would appreciate it if you couldemail me at Cheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com with all the answers to the questionsand your account information (i.e. account number, phone number and name on theaccount) and I will be happy to assist you further. :)

How to scan channels


The TV user guide should provide the procedures of acquiring auto scan. For example, your TV may be acquiring functionality from satellites dishs or cable receiver devices. Performing an auto scan achievable with the remote control device with adjustment to settings on the channel buttons would produce a signal only with available transmitter stations. Performing a channel auto scan would display no signals without available receiver devices often acquired with susbscription from a provder either cable TV, sattelite or disk network, show on demand for example. However, performing an auto scan on a new Tv should simply display a count list of possible available channels on which signals could be display when any is provided. Good luck

"Failed to receive broadcast"


On your TV remote,press "INPUT".It is hard to find,but it should be there.Select"TV" and press"ENTER" button.I believe it is on the top of the list.On some cable boxes you have to select channel 3 and use the cable box remote to change channels.Also,make sure your TV antenna setting is set to "Cable" from the "Air/Cable"(Antenna setting).You will have to read your manual to find out how to get to this menu.After that do a "Ch Search"[Channel search].This automatically searches for all available channels and stores them. It will take some time.You will see the channel numbers as it does it's search.This is done so when you press channel up and down keys it will only go to next channel available and not to one with no signal.Hope this is of some help.

Same thing... suddenly will not "allow" one channel to be seen


go to tv menu, do an "autoprogram" and it will select all available channels.
You can also do an add/remove channel and manually delete the channels you know you don't have.
You can also change your tv from air to CATV (cable) On cable tv you can still get all the air channels and Fox just the numbers will be different, but you may have a better signal

Not able to scan stations


I don't understand why you would bother to scan channel when you have directv or dishnetwork???
directv or Dishnetwork required their units in order to watch any channel,which means:
A. Depending on your TV setting,if you use RF connection from your basic directv to the tv,you would have to leave the TV on Ch.3 or Ch.4.to view the rest of the channels,you have to change it from the directv or dishnetwork box. You are NOT able to scan the rest of the channels from the TV,bottom line!!
If you have comcast or your local cable provider,once you have activated,you could use the RF signal coming out from the wall plate straight to the tv and go to TV auto programming,it will auto scan the available channels for you.
Don't waste your time on directv.
If you are thinking about recording from your BASIC directv or dishnetwork box, you would connect SAT. signal from the wall plate to the directv box,then use composite video/audio output and connect straight to your VCR/DVD player under composite video/audio input. Now you could record the viewing channel to the VHS.
Good luck!
