We had an electrical storm and the antenna was struck. In the coax circuit we had a antenna amplifier (that plugged into a 110 receptical), then the digital converter box, then rca plugs to the video 1 port to the TV. The coax cable looked burned at the connectors. The breaker tripped.(I think the most current went through the amplifier to the ground) and the video inputs for the TV dose not work. The screen comes on. You can navigate the channels.The menu shows up and works. The tuner shows snow but It is not connected to the antenna. My questions are: can it simply an input cluster of some type? if so is it an easy component to replace.

Hi. you mean receiving good image with a poor antenna ? Mostly one tends to use areal amplfiers. These however are no miracle devices. If your signal is weak (say, less than 10-20 µV) the amplifier's signal /noise ratio makes it even worse. The best 'amplifier' is still a good losless , as short as possible coax cable between the antenna and the receiver.
two things here, first, if the siganl is coming in but is weak you may need to adjust the antenna or purchase a amplifier. second, HD tv is in the UHF spectrum and you need to have that antenna for the HD, if you have both you should be able to get all the channels However if you have standard television, you may not be able to view HD broadcasts
Well, you have a couple options with this. You can use either coax cable, or RCA cables. If you use coax, you want to connect it on the receiver that says TV set out, and out the tv set on channel 3 or 4. If you use RCA cables, you want to connect these to the color coded connections on the back of the receiver labeled with a Green 1. The tv will need to be on channel 3 or 4, and a video in put, usually Video 1 or 2.
Because your TV is an older one, it might not have, what they call RCA inputs (the 3 colored cable) Red-audio right, White-audio left, Yellow-video. If I understand you.
You do have the option of using the 75-ohm coaxial cable inputs. Signal comes in from outside to the 722k, Output of the 722k to the 75ohm coax input on the back of the TV. Tune your TV to ch. 3 or 4. Make sure the switch on the back of the 722k is set to the same.
If you really want to use the RCA colored cables, then you need to buy an RF modulator, which integrates older tv's to newer products. But usually dvd players, not necessarily cable boxes, but it would work if hooked up correctly.
You plug the RCA red, white and yellow from the 722k, into the rf modulator, choose channel 3 or 4 on the modulator
Connect 75ohm coax cable from rf modulator to TV 75ohm coax cable input. Choose channel 3 or 4 on the TV.
IF coming in via, the "Dish" networked receiver, please check that this volume is turned way up, on the TV. and then control the the Volume, with the Dish Remote, often this is a problem, as one is turned down, and the other cannot turn that up, simply try syncing the Volume controls, UP on TV, control the Audio with dish remote. thats all i can think of. Check by feeding a signal IN from an AV, source, ie: Yellow, Video, & Red& White, Audio. Turn TV UP and check, IF it responds to this all is well. If NOT then you do indeed have a fault, with the TV.
We would be happy to help get that fixed right away. The first thing we want to ensure is that all connected equipment is on. We want to then check what type of cable was used to connect the TV to the receiver. If you are using a Coax Cable to connect the receiver to TV1, check the receiver's back panel for the output name. If your receiver has a "TV CH 3/4 out": Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4, back if it is labeled "Home Distribution": Tune TV to channel 62 or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, or HDMI) to connect receiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until picture appears; Most TVs have a "TV/Video", "Input", or "Source" button. If we are still not getting a picture then unplug receiver for 10 seconds then plug it back in, this will reset the receiver, then try cycling the inputs again.
We hope these steps resolve the issue. We want to thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

We would be happy to help get that fixed right away. Thefirst thing we want to ensure is that all connected equipment is on. Since we know you are using a coax cable to connect the receiver toTV1, check the receiver's back panel for the output name. If your receiver hasa "TV CH 3/4 out":Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4, if it is labeled "Home Distribution": TuneTV to channel 62 or 75. We also want to ensure that the TV and thereceiver are connected properly, please visit this link to for moreinformation: http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/setup-receiver-totv.Once we have made sure everything is connected properly, unplug receiver for 10seconds then plug it back in, this will reset the receiver. If we are still notgetting a picture connect another component (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) to the sameTV, using same cable, same input, and same channel to see if it works. If youget a picture with the other component give us a call at 1-800-333-DISH (3474)for some additional troubleshooting. If it doesn't work with the othercomponent then replace the cable that was used.

i just had this happen when my son sat on the remote and i have dish network too. i don't know if this will work for you but this is what i did- go under menu and go to antenna and make sure it is set to cable. then take your dish remote (as long as it is programmed to your tv) and press the satellite button at the top till it lights up for a second or so and if there is a second there where it switches to your satellite signal and goes off again, you have to take that one second to press the guide button and it will stay on your dish connection. wierd, but it has worked twice now for me.
using your Dish Network box connect the audio and video outputs to the tv via the RCA inputs1, 2, 3, or component inputs on the tv and then select the coresponding video input to view your cable. Or you can connect your Sattelite to the antenna A or B input jack on the back of the set and set the tv input to antenna
