Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Sanyo CLT1554 E-DTV Monitor-purchased 9-6-06 First I got a bad picture for approximately 30 seconds after I turned TV on, then it went blank. If I turned the TV off & on repeatedly for 5 times I got a good picture. I was not given the same remote, by the dish installation men, that is shown in the manual that came with the TV. Mine has no reset button on it. From the trouble instructions in the manual, I needed to press the reset button. Something in the manual guided me that to find the reset feature I must press the menu button, which I did. The reset button was there & I selected it. I got a screen telling me if I continued, I would wipe out the current settings & return to the factory settings. Was I sure I wanted to do this? I thought this was what I was trying to do, so I said yes. Everything was wiped out, but no factory settings appeared. I now had a blue screen. I started pressing buttons, any buttons, and ended with a cross between a snowy screen & a black screed. I also have static. Can I fix it?

    I have no background in electronics. When I did not know what a composite cable was, I asked the help of a friend who has some such background. The black box that links the T.V. with another T.V, is in another room. To follow your suggestion it would be necessary to run the cable between the two rooms making necessary drilling a hole in the wall. We connected the faulty T.V. in another room & determined that the T.V. is all right. To be sure we took a T.V. from another room & connected it to the faulty outlet. It did not work there either. We feel that the problem is between the dish connection outside the house & the T. V, not in the T. V. I will call the Dish company tomorrow. Hopefully they will fix it.

    Your solution did not solve my problem, but I am not sure that is your fault. What say you?

Yes you should be able to fix this. The first thing is to familiarize yourself with the places on your television to connect things to it.

You have one antenna input. That is where the coaxial cable is screwed in. The coaxial cable reminds you of a waterhose being attached to a spigot outside. That may be where your dish tv receiver is connected to your television.

Further you have one component input where you can attach a dvd or bluray player, an hd dish receiver, dvr or the like. That is the red, green, and blue colored female space on the television.

You have one S Video input that is labeled and various things can be connected there but it is not very good picture quality so I don't recommend it.

Lastly you have two video/av/RCA inputs--the yellow, red, white female places on the television.

What I am suggesting is reconnecting your dish tv receiver to the television in one of its video/av/RCA female inputs. You will need a yellow, red, and white composite cable. If you find that your dish tv receiver is already connected to the television this way please connect it to the other video/av/RCA input on this television since this television has two. If you have another composite cable use it instead of moving the same cable to another part of the television because the cable might be at fault.

You will have to change inputs. Hopefully the remote you have will allow you to change inputs. There should be a button that says either input, av, video, tv/vcr or the like.

I assume the dish tv receiver is connected with a coaxial cable to the antenna input. The television would have to be turned to channel 3. However if this isn't the main television then you would have the television tuned to a different channel. Dish would tell you what channel that would be.

Finally the problem could be with the television or the dish receiver itself. With the basic troubleshooting of reconnecting the receiver to the television with a different set of cables to a different part of the television you should be able to rule out the dish tv receiver itself. In order to rule out the television you would have to connect another device to the television like a dvd player, vcr or gaming system.
