Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today.
Can you supply the model number of your dish network receiver and do you have a remote for it?
Okay, thank you.
There are two ways to connect the receiver. One is with a coaxial cable, which is the same kind you would use for cable TV. This is the easiest method. The coaxial cable will work on channel 3, like you are trying to set up. This is what it looks like:
If you would like to use the any other type of cable (like the 3 part red/white/yellow) to connect the Dish receiver, on your TV you will have to be able to access 'Video" mode. To enter video mode, at the front of your TV is the TV/Video button. Press this until you see the image from your receiver. It may need to be pressed more than once, depending on where you have the cables running in to your TV.
Here is an image:
That is probably it - the TV does have to be in cable mode as opposed to TV mode. Here is how to change it with the buttons on the TV:
This should do it...
Checking this for you right now...just another minute or two.
You are doing everything correctly - just to be certain on the connections, in the following image, can you doublecheck that the tv cable is connected to the yellow highlighted one and the satellite input is connected to the one on the right please? Thank you...
Can you try the satellite receiver again on channel 14 and 65 on your television?
I switched to the TV mode and tried channels 14-69 again with no results. There are only 3 connections in the rear of the TV. Three coaxials, red, white and yellow, and one for the antenna.
Are you conecting the receiver through the Antenna coaxial connection?
I am completely out of ideas - let me opt out to open this up to some others. Maybe they are aware of something I am not.
I will keep researching this and watch the post to make sure this gets taken care of for you.
