Moving tv to another cable outlet

My wife decided that she wanted to rearrage two of our rooms and move the TV from the sitting room off of the kitchen to the formal living room. When I hook up the TV to the outlet in the living room it doesn't work. DishNetwork Tech Support says they are going to charge me $100 to come out and make that outlet work. Is there something I can do with the existing connections to reroute the signal from one room outlet to the next?

    thanks for offering a solution...I am sure that works, but I have no idea how to determine which feed is which. I think the splitter is outside and I have unhooked and rehooked to several different configurations to no avail. I may just change to DirecTV and get a 12 month promo price and have them hook up the correct outlet when they come out.

I f you have cable at the new location follow it back to a splitter. Remove the one you used to use and screw in the one you want to use. They should all terminate at the same location.

    As a last resort you might want to what I call 'Ring out the line'. Take a nine volt battery and connect to one end the center and the side of the cable and goto the other end with a 12v bulb and touch the center of the bulb to the center wire and the base of the bulb to the screw cap (threaded part). If it lights up that will identify the cable you are looking for.

How to install a home theater

Follow these steps:
•Plan out your setup. Before you start unpacking speakers and moving furniture, it's a good idea to have a placement scheme in mind.
Consider the location of the outlets in your home theatre room. If possible, choose a room powered by a single circuit breaker to reduce the risk of damage due to the overload your home theatre system might cause. Supplement the number of outlets with power strips.
Place your TV. The television should be placed where it can be viewed straight on. The center of the screen should be aligned with the eyes of a seated person.
Place your speakers before you start hooking things up. If there are hearing-imparied people in your household, place the speakers so that someone could sit directly next to at least one speaker.
Position your central channel speaker above or below your TV. If you put it on top of your TV, make sure the front edge of the speaker is aligned evenly with the front of your TV screen.
Place your front left and right speakers at equal distances on either side of your TV. The height of your left and right speakers should match the height of your central channel speaker.
Put your surround speakers at equal distances to the left and right of where you would normally sit and view your TV. Do not point your surround speakers directly at your viewing position. Try pointing them toward the back of the room or toward the ceiling.
Place your subwoofer to the side of the room, about halfway between your viewing position and your TV. You can adjust the bass reaction of your subwoofer by moving it closer to a wall to increase the bass, or by moving it away from a wall to decrease it.
Connect your speakers and theater system by running flat speaker cables down the length of your baseboard or lower portion of your wall. Consult your owner's manual for exact instructions.

Moved tv to another room turns on but cant get pic from sat

Hey there, this is Cheri Torres with DISH Network customerservice. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could be of someassistance. I do have few questions about your system that would help me togive you a better answer on what you will need to do to resolve this issue. Iwould first like to know what type of DISH Network receiver you have; youshould be able to find the model number on the front left side of your receiverbox. Is the type of receiver you have a dual receiver (plays two TVs from onereceiver)? Did you also move the receiver into a different room along with yourTV? If you are working with TV1 (the TV that is in the same room as yourreceiver) you are going to want to make sure your TV is either on channel 3 or4, or that it needs to be on a input (i.e. video 1, video 2, input 3 etc.). Youcan usually determine this by checking which type of cables you have. If youhave coax cables (black cable with silver end that you can screw into the TV)the TV will need to be set to channel 3/4. If the cables are RCA cables (yellow,white and red) or a HDMI cable (black cable with thin end) the TV will need tobe set on an input. For TV2 the second TV off of your receiver which should neverbe in the same room as the receiver the channel should be set for either 60 or73. I hope you find this information useful and if you are able to answer thequestions I would be able to help you a lot more with this issue. Feel free topost back here with a response or you can also email me :)

My dad moves his sharp aquos 32" lcd to another room. Worked in the original room, but now is stuck on only 1 channel and i cannot get any options to function. I can only change input to 4 or 5(hd...

It can be the cable outlet is bad, or the cable itself. Try it again in the old room or try another TV with this cable outlet. You are not using cable box, right?

Please see my basic troubleshooting guide here:
Failed TV and Monitors:
Learn about bad caps:
Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps.
Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series..

I have this Samsung but theres a wash and dryer behind the tv in another room. theres a annoying buzzing sound and theres lines going across the tv when the washer machine is on. what can I do to reduce...

you can try using a good quality surge strip on the tv. if that doesent do it you could try a different outlet on the other side of the room, or try using an outlet from a different room(long extension cord) if that doesent do it you may have to move the tv to another wall.

Try it again in the original room where the TV once was. If the channels from 47 and up are back to normal, its a cable signal issue that the cable company must resolve. Its possible that the installer may have driven a staple thru the coaxial cable or did not correctly attach the fittings.

you may bypass the box by using a straight connector, find the cable that lead to the TV room and connect it to the cable from the aerial antenna.
