Question about RCA HD50LPW175 50" HDTV
I just moved my tv into my new home and the tv turned on fine but when the cable guy went to hook the cable up to it would start sparking. I did not know if anyone knows how to fix this problem.
Hi, there is a sparking sound probably because whatever your cionnecting it from is still on. So switch of the unit where the cable is coming from, maybe its froma signal booster? and plug it into your tv, also there maybe still current running through your tv so switch off your tv aswell. It is quite common for connectors to spark when the equipment is on because the connector is try to make contact and there is a voltage present. I'm guessing that the TV works fine once the connector is inserted in or hasnt your cable guy gotten that far yet?
As long as its not a large spark and the source which the cable is connected to is not a high voltage source, which I dont see any reason why it should be. Also check the grounding of the cable. Considering you have a cable guy installing the equipment I'm suprised they do not know whats going on.....
