Question about Hitachi 65S500 65" HDTV-Ready Rear Projection Television

Open Question

It seems like the aspect choices are locked out. I'm only getting options of 16:9. I've tried both our Dish Network remote and original TV remote. How do I get the other aspect choices back?

SOURCE: Aspect Ratio or Input Issue

Not sure but you might be confusing your aspect selection on your DVR with aspect selections on the tv itself. Make sure you use your hitachi remote & check all available aspect ratios. Find one that suits u best

Dish Network Remote Codes? Can't seem to get the few I have to work the dish remote


If your remote is a learning remote (has a little black glossy square on the top left side of the remote) you don't need a code, you just need the original remote. Place both remotes on a table, or other flat, sturdy surface, with the original TV remote facing the square on the DISH remote. Make sure both remotes have functioning batteries. On the DISH remote, hold down TV until the button blinks three times, then hold down record (for 5+ seconds) until the TV button lights up and stays on. Then, slowly, for each key you want to use, hit the key on the DISH remote (TV light blinks) then the corresponding key on the original remote (TV light blinks). For example: DISH Volume Up, TV remote Volume Up. When you are done learning all the keys you want to train, hit SAT. The TV light will blink three times, then the SAT light will light up for a moment. Try the DISH remote on your TV functions.

I just purchased a 37"


Hi, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could help. Since you have already set the aspect ratio on your DISH receiver to the correct option the next step to try is changing the format. You can do this by pressing the (*) format button on the DISH Network remote, you should be able to cycle through a few different options to find the best one that fits your TV. If this option still does not fit the TV the way you want it to the only option left is to change the format options on the TV itself in the TV menus. You may have to refer back to your TV manufacture or the TV manual in order to do this. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions please let me know.

Cant get the remote to work for menu options just started setting it up already programed to my direct tv remote now nothing is working or either remote t.v or direct tv remote


To diagnose a remote control problem follow these steps.

1) unplug the TV power cord, count to five and plug it back in. (reboot)
2) try to power on with ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER remote.

if that works- your TV and original remote are fine.

if that does not work:
4) try to power on with buttons on the TV itself- if it works- check your remote batteries and try remote again.

Direct TV and Dish Network remotes will ONLY operate SIMPLE function of your TV such as power, volume, input.
They will NOT access your TV menu.

You will want to keep your aspect ratio on 16x9. On your DISH Network remote press the format button on your remote it will have an asterisk (*) on it. Also, try the page up and page down buttons right of the volume. If that fails take the factory remote and try the format button there as well.

Hello, my name is Becki Barned, with Dish Network customer service. To get your tv to work those particular functions, you will need to reprogram the remote to the tv, finding a code that works all functions of the tv. Some codes will work the power and volume, but not the other functions. Try these steps:

1. Hold down the TV mode button until all lights at the top of the remote are lit up
2. Press the 3 digit code in
3. Press the pound button
4. Press the SAT button on the top left of the remote.

Here are the codes to try:
505
671
627
864
006

Hope this helps!
