Could you please tell me how to reset my tv? I have a blue screen


What should I do if my TV screen turned black, blue, or gray? print.png Print try this.

Proceed with the troubleshooting steps below only if you're seeing:
  • Black, blue, or gray screen
  • "No Signal" message without the DIRECTV logo
Note: If your TV screen appears "frozen" or you're seeing wavy lines or overlapping images, try this.
Solution 1: Check that your TV is set on the right input
[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/global/icons/sm_cl_blu__number1_icon.png">Turn your TV and receiver off and back on.
[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/global/icons/sm_cl_blu__number2_icon.png">Using your DIRECTV remote control, press the TV Input button to cycle through TV inputs (Component, HDMI, etc) until you see a picture. If nothing happens when you press the button, try programming your DIRECTV remote to control your TV Input and try again.

Note: You can also try changing the TV Input using your TV remote.

Solution 2: Reset Your Receiver
[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/global/icons/sm_cl_blu__number1_icon.png">On some DIRECTV receivers there is a red reset button located inside the access card door on the front panel. Press it, then wait for your receiver to reboot.

Note: If you cannot locate the red reset button or your receiver does not have one, unplug the receiver's power cord from the electrical outlet, wait 15 seconds, and plug it back in. Then press the Power button on the front panel of your receiver and wait for your receiver to reboot.

Problem With DirecTV Signal with Samsung LN32 HDTV


Have you went into your cable box's setup menu and see if there is a option for a software update? Also, check outside where all the cables are high up to see if squirrels have been chewing on them. That is a problem sometimes. Also check outside where any cables are joined together (where they screw to extend a cable) and check inside for corrosion and tightness.

Try calibrating the antenna to the nearest satellite. The DirecTV box has in the installation menu instructions on how to do this. You'll need some tools like a socket wrench to unlock and adjust the antenna. Put in the menu your global position or your city and select the transponder that gives better signal. If all satellites are out of signal, move the dish until you receive at least one.
To calibrate the dish from the ceiling or wherever it's installed, put the TV volume up until you hear the short "BOOP" sound from the dish location. When you get signal, the "BOOP" will turn to a continuous "beep" with a higher pitch when higher the signal you're receiving. After getting the best signal, switch transponders to see if there's another with better signal, after that, lock the antenna and try watching a channel.

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.

DVR/TV connection


With the RGB you have to run seperate audio ,I think you have ran the seperate cables for the sound but they are in the wrong place.try changing the RW from the DVR to the TV and you should get sound from them.The unfortunate truth about the HDMI is that the HDMI format has a problem effectivly communicating between components.I am a Directv certified High Definition technition and %50 of the TV's that I connect the HDMI to will not receive the signal.One trick that I have found that works is to make sure you have a picture on the RGB then connect the HDMI.Once you have these connected ,turn your TV off and unplug the power cord from the DVR for 30 sec then plug the DVR in and wait 5 minutes for it to power up then turn your TV on and switch to your HDMI input.This method sometimes works to "Jumpstart" the HDMI input on the TV .There is no guarantee that this will work but is sounds like for now this is your only option,GOOD LUCK.
