How do i set the pixel to 1080 on my new 40h3e tv?

First you have to make sure your set is capable of 1080P. Next, you have to make sure your source can generate 1080P. Then you need to check your cables. If you are trying to run 1080P on a coax not designed for delivering those resolutions then you need to switch to an HDMI, RGB, DVI or 15HD connection. After all of these checks 1080P should come up in the menu as an options.

How do I get my tv on 1080ip

no offense but it does not look like it is capable of 1080p or 1080i. if it is, simple go to the menu and in setting find the video settings and the resolution setting if any, this is where you would make that change if possible- im sure you know you need an hdmi cable for full hd- some tv set will auto set their resolution to the best that the connected device will output, the only place the option will be is in the tv menu look for it there, but your hosting device must put out at 1080p or 1080i for the tv to render that resolution unless its up-converting which most sets aren't...... good luck questions ask

Upgraded to Hd and tv started messing up. Double images for first 10 minutes and sometimes tv picture goes off and lines up and down.

Your HDTV is capable of up to 1080P resolution. SDTV (standard def) signals are 480i; EDTV (enhanced def) is 480P; HDTV are 720P, (there is no 720i) 1080i and 1080P. Generally, those modes ending in "P" look better than those ending in "i". 1080i is the highest possible for broadcast TV, but BluRay disks and Directv have 1080P display capabilities.

The double picture you're describing sounds like the TV is set to display only standard or enhanced def signals while the Dish Network box is supplying it with HD signals. You should locate the control for the TV's resolution and make sure it is set to "1080P" and then set the output of your Dish Network set top box to the highest output it offers. Do the same for your BluRay player and any other devices, too.

Once set correctly, you should have a great picture once again. I hope this helps & good luck!

How do i get it back to 1080p had it disconnectted for a while but it is now 480p

You can consult the manual to verify all of your settings.

Changing the screen resolution can be tricky...
If it is a setting in your television, it can be accessed by pressing menu on your remote.
Once in the menu, there should be settings for the screen or picture. One of these will allow you to select resolutions. (consult the above manual for exact navigation of the menu)

The other thing is, sometimes televisions change automatically between resolutions based on what signal they have received. In this case, it isnt the television that is the issue, but is the device feeding it the signal, such as a cable/sat box or dvd/bluray. Make sure to check those devices to make sure they are sending the signal you require (in this case 1080p).

With more information about the device from which the signal is coming, we might be able to isolate where the problem is.

Eg. if your xbox isnt set to high resolution, or if your cable box isnt set to 1080p, your television cant possibly display at that high of a resolution.

Your cable box and TV are set to different resolutions. Check the setup on both and make sure everything is the same (ie 720p to 720p or 1080p to 1080p) Make sure your cable box can give you 1080p (Nice set, BTW!!). HDMI is supposed to automatically take care of the settings, but it does not hurt to double-check.

Depending on the manufacturer of the cable box, there may be screen setting for "letterbox" which should be selected.

Some TV channels, when redirected through a cable box, simply will not display full resolution (1080p) programming. Your cable TV provider can tell you which channels are displayed in high resolution.

Finally, make sure your cable provider gave you the correct box. Older boxes are not capable of providing 1080p resolution, and since you own a 1080p set, you deserve nothing less!

How do you change my vizio tv from 1080i setting to 1080p. the tv is a vizio 42" E420VO

You can't change the resolution on a set. That is done by the broadcast companies. Your set is capable of receiving it but if they don't send it, you don't see it. There's no emulation for that.

My tv is Samsung TOCa750. How do I set it up for 1080p and 120Hz?

Resolution such as 1080p,1080i etc. set by your source of the signal, for example, if your cable box set to 720p that is what you going to get from the TV. Cable box is ont capable of resolution more then 1080i because there is nobody broadcast in 1080p yet. Only way you can get 1080p is BD player, upconverting dvd player or media player. 120 Hz is just a frame rate convertor - takes stendard 60Hz and doubles number of frames to 120. So, you will see 120 frames per second instead of 60.
