Hello,

There is no "switch", the TV displays that what you feed into it.

It is 1080p so:

If you are using a Blu-ray Player or PS3, you will need to go into the setup for whichever and set the output video to 1080p @ 24f or 25f or 30f depending on your preference and what the TV will display.

As soon as you feed the TV 1080p via HDMI or DVI or Component, the TV should automatically switch. You will notice the difference in picture quality too.

Thanks

I have a sharp TV and an trying to CD an Amazon fire stick. TV keeps responding...incomparable video signal...help


The stick is set to 1080p your sharp tv cannot show 1080p change it to 480p in settings , you will have to use it in another tv than is capable of showing 1080p, then just change it to 480p , then you should be able to use it on the sharp tv. You can then try to change it to 720p if it says the same about the signal leave it for 30 seconds and it will revert back to 480p

How do i change from 480p to 1080p on my rca remote


You don't. The TV's resolution can't be changed. Only the signal resolution from the source can be altered.

The TV reports the resolution of the incoming signal before it is scaled. If you have a BD player you can see the effect of changing the resolution setting from 480p, to 720p, to 1080i, to 1080p 60, to 1080p 24. The last three (the 1080 resolutions) shouldn't look too different with a Blu-ray apart from movement because the native picture is 1080p 24 and the TV is simply converting it back to 1080p 24 for display.

Please help MyTV won't power on!


It just blew it's power supply. There could be a fuse or reset inside but not likely. It likely needs a voltage rectifier, voltage regulator, or a diode or a resistor, perhaps an IC. Find a factory authorized technician (they have schematics and oscilloscopes)

1080p tv stays in 480p mode


Resolution is a slave to the source. It sounds as though the source is only outputting 480p. Go through the menu settings of the source device(bluray, cable, satellite box, game system) and set it to output 1080.

I cannot switch to 1080p on my Vizio. It is a full HD TV but will not do 1080p and I can't switch resolution off of 480p even with a Blu-Ray.


The resolution is not set at the TV, it is set by the video sources. The TV will detect the resolution and display what it is receiving.
1080P signal = 1080p display.
Does it do that on all sources?

My new set displays only 480p SD on all my HD channels. Am I missing some settings in the menu's or is something more sinister going on? Any help would be greatful, I'm drowning watching sports!


hi,
u can enjoy full hd 1080p video through only ur tv inputs as 2 component video and 2 HDMI. the tv is seted to receive videos up to the resolution 1080p automatically (need not have any setting). just check the output of ur cable box or BD player, is it outputs full hd. if u are using the tvs internal tuner u will only get 480p.

ok

Switch from 480i to 1080p


The resolution is controlled by your video sources, if you feed it with 480p, it will display in 480p. You do not control it at the TV, it works the same as your PC monitor, which is controlled by the PC video card resolution setting.

Tv states its a 1080p hd but always shows that its using 480p when it turns on? Is there a setting to go to change that?


tv is not 1080p, it will do 1080i through component. the "switch" is automatic when you plug something in that it will support.

the back of the tv has labels next to the inputs that will tell you which resolutions the various inputs will support.

Tv is showing 480p and we want it at 1080p on our new Toshiba 40XV648 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz HD LCD TV Cinema Series.


After searching the owners manual I find that there is nothing mentioned about the screen resolution i.e. 480p to 1080p.

This set is capable of your desired resolution and as far as I can tell it auto selects because it senses the input video and decides which is the best setting for that source.

It's important to understand that you need 1080p video to use it at it's full capabilities. It won't give you a 1080p resolution from a VCR or a standard DVD player. You need a DVD player that is capable of producing a 1080p encoded video. Some satellite receivers are capable of that but you need to make sure you know what resolution that you are sending to the television.

Local TV stations won't usually broadcast HD at 1080p. Your best bet is to use a DVD player that is capable of that high resolution for your best picture.

Please note that what it says in the owners manual about "Resolution" has nothing to do with the 480p, 720p or 1080p signals, your set selects that automatically it will start by selecting the 1080p then goes to 720p then 420p it's dependent on the video you send to the set.

Please note the "resolution" function is actually like a "sharpness" control.

Your video input (tuner, VCR, DVD, games and etc.) is likely your problem.
