Question about Hitachi UltraVision CineForm 55VG825 55" HDTV
We got this TV as a hand me down so I don't have an Owner's Manual and cannot find one at Hitachi's website. We have the set hooked up to cable and can hear sound and see the cable directory just fine, but no picture. All connections appear secure, and all other sets in the house have picture so it doesn't appear to be a problem with cable.
Thanks for any suggestions you can offer!
Sounds to me like you may not have service on your cable box. I worked for a large cable provider for years and that was generally either a faulty box or the box just needed a "signal" sent to it. Try to bypass the box complety and just hook your service directly into your TV. You may need to go into you TV's menu, switch it to the cable setting and then auto search, but most likely the TV is new enought ath you should be able to get a picture. We do know that it is not a problem with the TV since you are able to view other devices on the TV. If you get a picture then we have narrowed it down to the bow. Although this may not mean that the box is bad. First let's ensure that if is installed correctly and that the input jack is the cable from the wall and that the output runs to the TV. Again you have sound so i know this seems dumb but so can be cable installers. :) Since we know all of that is correct and you still have sound but no picture, I'm going to say that you most likely have a motorola box and on the front of it there is a small button that has a/b next to it. (most commonly found on motorola box but not limited to). If that button does exist on this box i'm almost certain that will correct your problem. If not you have a faulty box and should ask you cable provider to replace it.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

? What is the model # off the back ?
Does the video work on the RF coax cable input?
For instance,as a test,can you hook-up from VCR coax RF out
to TV coax in,put the TV on Chan. 3,play a tape and get audio and video?
Are you matching colors when trying the A/V inputs?Yellow,red,
and white out of DVD to yellow,red and white in on back of TV?
Then select video input on tv===dial "00" or use input button on
original RCA remote. Are you using original RCA remote that
came w/TV ? Do you have the owner/operator manual for the TV?
Sorry to ask so many ????? Let me know how it goes!! T.
