On your DISH remote press the format button with an asterisk on it if this doesn't correct the issue try the page up and page down buttons to the right of the volume. If neither of these correct the issue reply with your receiver model number and we can go from there!

Picture doesn't fit screen


Ken, I can understand the concern and would be happy to help. I hope this has been resolved by now. If not, you'll want to press the Star (*) button on the bottom of the remote to change the screen format. If it continues, or you need any other assistance, just let me know!

I have dish network 622 and 722 dvr receivers. this same issue happens on both receivers. when i put the picture in picture screens side by side, one is in widescreen with the black bars above and below...


Justin Warshowsky,

There is no way to change the format once PIP is in use. Try unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds and plugging it back in. I would also recommend making sure your formats on both TV's are set correctly.

If the problem persists, send me an email at thomas.faust@dish.com and I can look into submitted a report to our Operations team to check it out.

I have DISH NETWORK & something happend so whatever is on in 1 room appears on my TV that I dont like how can I control ONLY my TV & fix this problem?


Brandonhusse,

It sounds like the receiver is in single mode, which will allow both TV's to show the same picture with 'Shared Viewing' enabled. On the front of the receiver should be a 'Mode' button. Press that to change it from Dual to Single or Single to Dual. The orange light on the front of the box will let you know which one it is on.

Once changed to Dual mode, try the TV's again and see if they are functioning separately. If the problem continues, let me know here or at thomas.faust@dish.com!

I'm hooked up tp Dish Network an hit wrong button on top for volume and now pic is gone. in lower left corner says no signal., but dish is working, just no picture on screen


Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. It sounds like you are going to need to change your TV back to the proper input or channel. If the TV remote is not working to change the channels you can also use the buttons on the front of the TV. First look for a button listed as either input, TV/video, source or AUX. When you press this button it will start cycling through all the inputs available, make sure to cycle through them slowly because it make take a couple seconds for the picture to come in. If you do not find a picture on any of the inputs you are going to need to try the different channels. Normally for a TV where the receiver box is the TV should be set to channel 3 or 4. Once you have found your DISH Network picture you will want to make sure to push the SAT button on the DISH remote so that it doesn't change the TV channel again. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions or concerns please let me know. Thanks. :)

Tv (plasma) made loud pop then went black, turned off still no picture but has sound through different channels. Happened before and dish said to reset box? thanks


That's an interesting issue you posted, yfz45011959! Try unplugging the receiver's power cord from the outlet for at least ten seconds and then plugging it back in. If that doesn't fix the problem, let me know what type of receiver you have. The model can be found on the front panel in the bottom left corner.

Hope that helps!

Dish Network controller doesn't work if you happen to pause or stop when the screen is black or on a dark picture. You have to turn TV and control box off then back on to regain controller.

The remote works fine other than this stated problem? What type receiver and TV do you have? Do this just began occurring? Have you checked the batteries to make sure they are fresh? Is this on TV 1 or TV 2? One thing you may try is readdressing the remote to the receiver.

Remote: All Other Remotes
  1. Go to System Info screen (press Menu button 2 times on remote).
  2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  4. Press the pound (#) button.
  5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful, the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

Trying to hook up to a new Dish network box that was sent as a replacement. Before I can go through the Dish set-up the TV picture blinks on and off constantly. I have replaced the HDMI cable, confirmed...


I would try using a gold plated HDMI cable. Often the problem is that the cable is not capable of sending enough frames per second. I replaced mine with a slightly better quality cable I picked up at Sears for $25.00 and the issue was not only resolved th picture quality was unbelievable. If this doesn't help just reply and I will address this with you further!

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 have changed the screen size to 16 x 9. There is black space at the top and bottom of the screen. What do I do to correct this?


Hi welcome to Fixya,
Presently there are 16 formats (sizes) transmitted and you may need to hit a button to show a full screen sometimes on some channels. The format , aspect or size buttons are on both the TV remote and any cable / dish remote you have . set the TV to full or 16x9 if using a cable / dish box, then set the box to the stretch mode and the picture should be full, there may also be a zoom setting that will fill the picture but may cut off the edges.
Respond with more details or try the suggested settings
Thanks
