Re: Had the digital cable box installed yesterday. The...
The cable box has an AC outlet on the back of it and sometimes the installer plugs the TV power cord into it. This outlet has two modes--IE: on all the time or switched. If the outlet happens to be programmed to the switched mode, the cable box has to be on before you can turn on the TV. If the outlet is on all the time, then you can turn the TV on at will. So, you have to decide if the TV is plugged in there or it is plugged into the wall recptacle. If none of this explanation fits, then we need more information.

IF IT IS HOOKED UP WITH COMPONENT CABLES (GREEN, RED, AND BLUE) FOR PICTURE AND RED AND WHITE FOR AUDIO, MOST LIKELY THE RED ONE IS NOT SEATED PROPERLY, CHECK BOTH ENDS THE ONE CONNECTED TO THE TV AND THE ONE CONNECTED TO WHATEVER THE SOURCE IS ( SATELLITE BOX, CABLE BOX ETC.
is your RGB cables are the same output from your tv...are you connecting from where dvd cable box sattelite box, if you are connecting from a box exs output of cable box is what colour are you using? for your your output to your tv and what input are you using of your tv set.[input 1is it video input 1,] or comp? let me know...
I have the same exact model tv...Love it...ATSC tuners is in definition an Analog tuner. As the broadcasting companies change over to Digital broadcasting before the deadline in Febuary 2009 more and more local or Non-Digital chanels are becoming obsolete. You would have to purchase a converter box for your tv if your not planning on getting cable. Another way to gois if you have an old cable line running through you house (no incomming cable) plug you tv into that jack. That also acts as a antenna. The sweet part of all this is that your tv do have a QAM tuner or Digital tuner built in just need that digital antenna to pair it up.
does it work ok on other inputs? such as dvd or games , etc? If so, your tuner could have gone out in the tv. You can fix this, OR you could simply bypass it by getting the digital cable box from your cable provider and running the RCA outputs from the cable box into one of your other inputs like video 1 .
Did you ever get this problem fixed? Ours just started doing the same thing. It worked fine the night before, but today it's doing what yours is doing. The remote stopped working for the TV. The remote still works for the cable box, but volume and anything related to TV function not. The screen flashes when we try to adjust volume or anything else, but resets to previous volume. TV not responding to any commands either on the front panel or remote.
Any ideas? Thanks, Patti
