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!

NO VOLUME AT ALL - GREAT PICTURE We have Dish


You will want to start by unplugging the receiver for ten aseconds. If this doesn't resolve the issue check the cable from the receiver to the TV if it is a single cable with a flat end then just ensure both ends are firmly connected. If you are using component cables with 5 colored ends (red, green, blue, white, and red) make sure the red and white audio cables are connected on both ends. If this fails to resolve the issue reply to this and I will get back to you!

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.

I just bought a new dynex 32 inch DX-32L152A11 tv. I tired to hook it up to my dish system and the picture is black and white and no sound.


Hello Debbie,

This is due to incorrect connections between the dish box and the TV. You may find that if you select another input (AV1) on the TV, you will have sound from the dish system, but no picture.

I suspect you are using an RCA type AV cable with red, white and yellow jacks on both ends. You've most likely connected the yellow jack to a socket labelled Y, Pb or Pr on the back of the TV and then selected the COMPONENT input on the TV.

If you are using a cable with red, white and yellow jacks, please make sure they are connected to the sockets on the back of the TV shown below. I've ringed the socket for the white jack in green for better visibility.

Once you've done this, select the AV1 input on the TV by pressing the INPUT button on the dynex remote, then use the arrow keys to highlight AV1 and press ENTER to select.

If this does not solve your problem, please let me know which type of cable you are using and the model number of your dish box. If you don't know the technical term for the type of cable you are using, please describe it as best you can, i.e. how many plugs/jacks are on each end of the cable and whether they are color-coded.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.

I have the dish network box which is HD although I can get a video feed on the television I get no audio


The first step you want to try is unplugging the receiver for ten seconds. After that check the cabling if you have component cables (red, blue, green, red, white) make sure the red and white are connected firmly. Also make sure they are connected right next to the red blue and green cables on the back of the TV. If you have an HDMI cable try connecting it to another port on the back of the TV. If that fails try replacing the cable.

LCD TV IS CONNECTED TO CABLE USING SATELITE. CABLE IS RUN APPROX 150 FT FROM SAT DISH TO TV. RECEPTION IS VERY GRAINY,,,IS IT THE LENGTH OF CABLE? THE CABLE IS 100FT CONNECTED TO 50FT CONNECTED TO TV....


Is the satellite receiver HD or standard?
If it is standard you should hook up the box to the tv via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) and this will help with the picture quality.

If it is a HD receiver then hook up the box to the tv using a component video cable and this will drastically change the quality of the picture.

Using a coax cable to attach from the box to the tv essentially is connecting an analog signal to the tv and this will produce a lower quality picture...

Good Luck!!

If you are using the AV inputs on the set, make sure that the DVD player is not in Progressive scan mode. ( see your owners manual )

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.
