Problem started with Dish Network receiver (I think) saying no signal. After talking to a tech and plugging and unplugging everything 50 times my receiver will go on but my LG 52SX4D 52 in. HDTV will not. I tried unplugging for an hour or so but this did not help. When I turn the tv on there is a white scrolling light going up and down for a while and then turns itself off. Thanks for any solutions, firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi Meagan, 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 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 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!
2 possible solutions, 1. If you have any type of dish network, go into the service part of the menu and check the signal strength usually a signal on any of the transponders less than 70 will cause this on some channels due to thier own signal. You can have either a tech come out,( sometimes for free, or you can adjust the dish very i reat very small increments so as not to diviate from the correct izmuth setting originally aimed at. to do this, you can do it yourself by selecting signal strentgh meters on the menu and raising the volume so you can hear the repeated blips while adjusting the dish. The sound your looking for is like the old Pong game on atari. The faster the blips, the stronger the signal. Slower blips mean your aligning the dish in the wrong direction.
2. Check your coax cables. If their old, they may not support the bandwidth being sent through it. Check at connections, ( All of Them) they wear with age. Is the cable itself at the connection protruding enough to enter the receiving female part. When you unscrew a coax at the connection, it should have about 1/8" to 1/4" copper cable past the connector and in clean, good, straight condition. make sure they are tight, and good luck
If it's hooked to Dish network, you have a receiver to connect to the TV. If you're using the receiver's RF output on channel 3 or 4 to the TV's antenna jack, you need to have the receiver on while the TV is scanning or it won't add the receiver's output channel. You can rescan channels after you turn the receiver on. If the TV has AV input jacks and you're connecting the receiver that way, you need to switch the TV to the AV input. That may be difficult or even impossible without the TV remote.
I am going to assume this is a self install meaning you just got a new tv. If you have an HD receiver connected with red/blue/green wires ensure that you also use a set of red/white from the same TV output on receiver to the same audio input on the TV that you have the other wires ran to as the RED/BLUE/GREEN only carry a video signal. Some poor quality HDMI cables will also require the same red/white wires to gain audio as they do not always function properly. Other than that I can think of no other reason you should not be receiving audio other than internal speaker in tv being turned off. This usually is true when a surround sound is in use but the dish receiver was not integrated into the surround but the TV itself. I hope this is of some assistance to you. Thanks for using Fix Ya and if I can be of anymore assistance please let me know.
May be one of two things. With a standard av input (called
Composite Video and usually colored Yellow) then the signal must be
480i, Standard Definition with (i)nterlace. If it is higher, say
1080i (another interlace signal but High Definition), 480p (Standard
Definition in (p)rogressive mode), or 720p (another HD in progressive).
Try reseting the Dish receiver by unplugging it for 15 seconds.
There might few possibilities:
Loose cable from the receiver to the diplexers, switches and LNB.
I would suggest to try swapping the receivers to isolate the possibility that one the receivers might defective as well.
Hope this helps.
In order for you to receive HD broadcasting you must have a HD-TV, otherwise you wont get the picture in HD. Also I should point out that you need to make sure that the signal itself is being broadcast in HD.
Hi first of all are you using scart leads to plug into each device here is how it should be set up ok 1. Scart lead from dish network into vcr 2. then other scart from vcr into tv 3. Now ti recieve the signal from the dish network you need to have the telly on the right av channel so that its picking up the signal from the vcr. you can test this by changing the channel on the vcr controll or direct via buttons on vcr. If the channels change then your on the right av channel. Now when your on right channel on telly you need to now make sure dish network is on and on a channel or press the tv guide button just so you know what your looking for when the picture comes through. You need to press av on the vcr controll this will then pick up the signal from the dish network via the scart lead as av is the channel for scart lead. say if you was recording from dish net to vcr you would put the vcr on av to pick up the signal so press av on vcr controll this should then allow you to watch the dish network with no problems. Let me know if you still cant and ill assist you further if it dont work tell me what you have done so i know how much you have done ok
Are you using the AV outputs on the Receiver and not the composite grn-red-blue. Do you have the converter jack on the back by the ant. input? what souce on the set are you using for PIP and your main screen?
