Re: Resolution Difficulties

If you are using cable and a cable box or a satellite box, the setting must be done on those. The TV only reproduces 720p because that is what the incomming signal to it is.

  1. Hold down the Menu and Menu up/scroll (+) buttons simultaneously on the Apple Remote for 6 seconds.
  2. TV will cycle through all of the available resolutions, displaying each for about 15 seconds. Please wait, as it may take up to 2 minutes before a compatible resolution is found. If the display is incorrect or doesn't show up, keep waiting while TV continues to try and find a compatible resolution.
  3. When a picture appears on the screen, navigate to OK with the remote and press the Select/Play/Pause button.
If you think you selected the wrong resolution, repeat these steps again. TV works much better in HD resolutions such as 720p or 1080i. You should choose the 'best' resolution your TV supports.
If HDMI or DVI connections are available on your TV, you can use them instead of component video to avoid this process

My 42 inch westinghouse wont turn onDTV 1080p TX-42F430S

If you are referring to that you are unable to select the the 1080p setting in the TV menu, first try changing the aspect ratio in the TV Menu.
If that does not do it, you have to change the display setting ion your device, if you can not or it does not have 1080p the problem is that resolution is unsupported by your device

I have a sony 3d tv model xbr-52hx909 how do you change the resolution from 1080i to 1080p

The resolution is controlled by the video sources, you do not adjust it at the TV, if you feed it with video sources that is 1080i it will display 1080i.
I hope that will explain how it works.
