2 Answers

Picture..... rarely used, not that it matters. tv lost red; then went black and white; then lost picture. wasn't sure if it was related to hd dish network box or not. then realized dvd was fine; full color. so, i watched some dvd's. then went black and white; lost picture. am i screwed???? am heavily disappointed that tv may be dead after 2-3 years max; and rarely watched....... if screwed, obviously plasma is not a good choice. can you recommend technology to go with? thanks.

I'd still go with plasma it has true black where LCD does not and cheats you out of bits.

much better for gamming.

Sd dish reciever not recognized by hdtv tuner


Hey dgrines81!

I would need more information to provide an accurate solution including what model of receiver, but it sounds like you have an SD receiver hooked up to a HD TV.

Our SD receivers can show picture on an HD TV, they just need the correct cable. If your TV has the spot, I would recommend using RCA (Red, Yellow, White) cables. Plug those in to the receiver and the TV and then change the input. If the problem continues feel free to reach me here, or at thomas.faust@dish.com.

How do I connect my LG TV to my dish network


Hello Al, my name is Cheri Torres and I work with DISH Network Internet Response Team. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could help. Connecting your LG TV to your DISH Network receiver should be fairly easy, depending on the connections you are using. If you are using an HDMI cable you will need to connect one side of it to your LG TV and the other end into your DISH receiver, as long as you have an HD receiver. If you do not have an HD receiver you are probably going to want to use composite cables(red, white and yellow). If you are using either of these cables you are going to have to set your TV to an input in order to receive the DISH picture. You can select an input by finding a button on the TV remote or the TV itself that is listed as input, source, AUX, mode or video. You will need to cycle through each one until you find the DISH picture on one of them. Once you have the picture you will need to press SAT on your DISH remote and everything should be working fine from there. I hope this information is useful and if you have further questions feel free to ask!

Today, while watching tv on the Dish, tv suddenly started powercycling. I unplugged it, waited, and then tried a DVD -- worked fine. Tried Dish again, power cycled again -- on off on off, 1/2 second of...


If you are using a powerstrip may not be supplying enough power to run the LG HDTV and your HD receiver. If you are using a powerstrip make sure the receiver is plugged directly into the wall. Otherwise this may be a grounding issue please reply if this doesn't work and we can look into some other possibilities.

Installed a new set top box last night and all the channels are black and white - no colour at all - confused!!

Check your cables between the receiver and your TV to make sure the colors match. If you are using a component cable (green, blue, red, white, red), not matching colors at both ends will give you what appears to be a black and white picture. I hope this helps.

Black and white viewing


It's probably the new technology.Do you have a cable box or basic cable with a straight wire?If you have a box it should work.Sounds like you don't though.The cheapest fix would be a digital converter box.If you buy one and don't like the results,make sure you buy it at a place where they will accept the return.A dish digital box should work though.Do you have just a wire from the dish?It seems like a dish requires some sort of converter.How long have you had this problem?If you had a picture when they first went to digital,it would be the TV.That's all i can say.
Good luck!

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.

Lg 32lc2r, only showing picture in black and white


Make sure that the color control level is set to the default or 50% to start with. This should be in the Video menu.

The colour for the tuner and for the encoded base-band video uses a circuit area called the colour demodulator. It is possible that this cirucuit area has failed and needs servicing.
