You have to adjust the settings on whatever is connected to your television. If you have a bluray player connected to your television with an hdmi cable you should be able to receive 1080p but you have to set the bluray player to 1080i. The tv picks up the signal automatically. From your cable box or satellite tv box you cannot get any more than 1080i from television programs at this time. You can get 1080p from bluray on demand. In certain circumstances you can get 1080p over component cables as well as an hdmi cable but in most cases you will only get 1080i. Once again you have to set your connected device to 1080 to get it on your tv

My tv is 1080p, but when I turned it on it says it's only 720p..


Your tv may be matching the source resolution. If your BluRay player, Cable Box, etc. is set to put out 720P, the TV will not / can not magically make it 1080i or 1080P. Otherwise, you should check the Menu for Picture settings and make sure it is set to 1080i or 1080P so that it is displaying the highest resolution possible.

How to set display to 1080p on Hisense F42K20E?


You don't. The TV has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels; so it's already 1080p. The number of pixels can't be changed.

What you're probably getting mixed up with is the TV showing the resolution of the incoming signal when you change channels or go to a different source. Standard definition from cable might be flagged as 480i. DVD might show either as 480i, or 480p, or maybe 720p or 1080i or 1080p if you have a scaling DVD player and set it appropriately. HDTV on cable or satellite will show as 1080i or possibly 720p. Blu-rays and PS3/XBox 360 or PS4/Xbox One should show as 1080p when your TV is connected.

Whatever the source signal resolution, the TV will scale it up to fill the panel area of 1920x1080 pixels. So the TV is always using all the pixels, regardless of the resolution of the source signal.

No signal on tv and mode not supported via hdmi cable


Connect your PS3 to your tv using a normal AV cable. Check some Display settings like 720p or 1080p. I've your TV is 720p, 1080p probably wont work.
I'm not sure of this all, but its worth a shot.

My ps3 wont show up on my tv screen it is a 42 inch plasma it will not show up it keeps saying invailed format what do i do?


Your 22 monitor is set up (most likely) with a max resolution on 1650x1050 and you ps3 stays set to that even when you use it on your dads 1080p TV (1920x1080) and since your 22 in monitor is a non-standard resolution (in the TV world that is ) ie 720p = 1280x720 and 1080p = 1920x1080 it has to adjust to the closest resolution (your ps3) but sometimes the auto switching of resolutions doesn't work like it should..it just doesn't work sometimes. I suggest that when you take it to your dads you adjust the resolution to 720p ahead of time (a resolution both the 22 monitor and tv should be able to handle ) and when you get to his house it should work at least enough to see everything and then when already there you can adjust up to the higher 1080p (1920x1080). Then adjust back to 720p before you go home again. Sorry for the long winded post.

Here is a link to resolutions explained in case it helps.

I bought an insignia 26" 1080p yesterday and the display shows that the tv is currently showing the picture at 720p. How can i adjust this so that it is 1080


Generally speaking, your TV will display the signal it receives. DVD player output, for example, is 480p, but an upconvert DVD player can output the signal at 720p or 1080p. You should adjust your components (e.g. cable/satellite box, DVD/Blu-ray players, etc.) to the desired compatible output.

I had ps3 hooked up to 720p tv then hooked it up to 1080p moniter now it won't show a picture on 720p tv


you have to switch it back to 720p mode before disconnecting it from the 1080p television. If you're using HDMI, and then switching back to the a/v connectors, then you have to switch the output settings of the ps3 from hdmi to a/v as well.
