I've got a Sony rear projection HD LCD TV that's been performing well until today. I have Dish Network satellite service which has a tendency to go out when heavy rain is present. When the signal goes out the image goes to a screen showing a heavy blue box showing the dish searching for a good signal. Well once the dish resumed a proper reception there it was: A faint blue shadow remained regardless the image. I thought this was not supposed to happen with LCD TVs. Is there a fix for this? I saw a DVD that's supposed to fix the problem, but was wondering is this just another scam to get my $40 bucks.

Yes, it should be HD ready. There should be a small label on the front of the TV if so (provided it has not been removed). You will need a HD cable box, convertor or HD satellite box (Direct TV or Dish Network) to view HD broadcasts (even from free over-the-air HD broadcasts if you live within range of a local broadcasting station). I had the same, or very similar TV but upgraded to flat screen plasma set.

You do not need a high def receiver, your unit has an ATSC tuner which is the same thing. You do need to hook it up to a high definition signal. You mentioned that you have satellite. Call your supplier and order the high definition channels if you do not already have them on the downlink. They should be able to tell you if you have them or not. They should also be able to tell you which channels they are (normally the higher ones). Once you have a high definition feed you will have the best picture you are going to get with todays technology.
Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial.
If the satellite picture displays on other tvs in the house, and you have the satellite hooked up to the rear projection tv you may have to do the following:
1. Using the remote, select the input button. You will now see a menu of several choices.
2.Methodically go from one to the next until your satellite pix appears.
Hi. You will love the dish. I have enjoyed it in my home for a number of years. I like the HDMI cable because it is the best quality and simple to install, one cable does it all. If you don't have one yet get it at walmart where it is about half the cost of other retailers. All satellite TV is HD without you doing anything special. So yes, it will do HD from whatever input you choose.
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.
Check your PIP source. I couldnt figure out my LCD pip, and why it wasnt working either until I was able to switch the source. It was automatically using a source that didnt have anything hooked up to, I had to switch mine in order for it to work.
Try that and see if that might be the case.
let me know. thanks!
I have the exact same problem with my 42" LCD HDTV. When I called Sony "customer support" they told me NOTHING. However, I began researching this issue and found out that Sony knows all about this problem. It's a part called the "Optical Block" and THEY are supposed to reimburse you for the repair! The claim form is on the Sony Website.
