When I set the Directv receiver box to the 1080i resolution mode, the picture on the TV is ghost mode with red and blue outlines around each figures. please help. When I set the receiver to the 480i resolution, the red and blue outlines go away but the whole picture screen is covered with thin horizontal lines.

This may sound strange but I have seen something like this once before in this model----In the customer menu select Convergence---DO THIS WITH NOTHING CONNECTED TO THE SET FOR SIGNAL-- IF THE multipoint convergence looks ok---I saw one of these sets where the problem was the box that was giving the set signal---easy to find out if you have them swap that box out for another---The TV does not know(convergence wise) whether you are 480 or 1080---yes, sometimes the set needs to be adjusted in each of these modes for Convergence---the set I saw the convergence was ok in 480 but out the window in 1080----he had another box in another room and when we swapped it the problem was gone.

Let me know if this helps you---in the 480 you can confirm this by hooking a DVD etc and if that looks good---suspect the box.

If you have any questions let me know--I am here to help.

Upgraded to Hd and tv started messing up. Double images for first 10 minutes and sometimes tv picture goes off and lines up and down.


Your HDTV is capable of up to 1080P resolution. SDTV (standard def) signals are 480i; EDTV (enhanced def) is 480P; HDTV are 720P, (there is no 720i) 1080i and 1080P. Generally, those modes ending in "P" look better than those ending in "i". 1080i is the highest possible for broadcast TV, but BluRay disks and Directv have 1080P display capabilities.

The double picture you're describing sounds like the TV is set to display only standard or enhanced def signals while the Dish Network box is supplying it with HD signals. You should locate the control for the TV's resolution and make sure it is set to "1080P" and then set the output of your Dish Network set top box to the highest output it offers. Do the same for your BluRay player and any other devices, too.

Once set correctly, you should have a great picture once again. I hope this helps & good luck!

My picture shows in an original unaltered format. I have tried changing the picture mode using the remote and changing from 480 up to 1080p on my directv box. How do I make the picture appear normal,...


Try turning the native resolution off (disabling it) and making sure that the 4:3 override is not enabled as well leaving it in 1080i (the direct tv receiver). The receiver could be at fault and may need to be exchanged.

Why can't i see 1080p programs on my directv hd dvr? The test on the hdr says my receiver doesn't receive 1080p. My tv is a Sharp LC-62C42U which is suppose to receive 1080p!


Your DVR can't detect whether your TV can do HD or not. If the message is stating that your receiver (which is your DVR) can't receive 1080P, then you'll need to contact DirecTV for assistance. You may need to replace your DVR.

The picture seems to have gotten bigger and now the tops of their heads are cut off


When this happens you can try the wide/picture format/view mode button on your television's remote control first. If your remote does not have one or if this does not correct the problem check the resolution on the cable box next. If your television displays 720p make sure the cable box is set for 720p, or 1080i if the television supports that resolution. First you have to make sure your tv in on the right input not the tv tuner input. Then use the hdzoom# button on the cable remote. If you have a satellite remote it might say format or aspect or you might have to go into the cable box/satellite receiver menu and choose 1080i crop or 1080i stretch to get the right picture size.

use just the red green and blue wires for the picture and NOT the yellow wire. That is why it is messed up.

XBOX games only play in 720, but it will still look great.

How to adjust from 480p to higher resolution up to 1080


several things use hdmi cabling, also change resolution (can sometimes be changed on front of direct tv receiver) or may have to go through menu to change to the different resolutions. also turn the native mode OFF! having the native mode on for directv will give sometimes give you odd pictures. also whatever resolution you choose through directv menu's make sure your tv is also set to the same resolution

On this TV there is only one input for any HD resolution. Input # 5 is the component input i.e. red/green/blue cable. Just get the correct cable and match colors from cable box to TV this will allow the TV to display 1080i resolution ( only one this TV supports ). FYI you will also have to connect the red and white cables to the appropriate inputs to get any sound because red/green/blue connectors are just for video display not sound. Once your connected you'll be able to access video # 5 be sure to set your cable box to 1080i resolution also. I hope this helps later J.

Problem with HD feed from satellite receiver


I just had my HD DTV installed this weekend, you have to leave it on 480p. I too purchased my tv in 2002. Per DTV, its an older model and you have to stay with the 480p to get the best possible picture. I have to admit, don't know what the 1080i looks like, but 480p is showing me a very good picture. Best I have ever seen on my TV.
