Check the wires between the cablebox and the tv, one is probably loose or something. If you have component, check the green one. HDMI, be careful not to wiggle too much an break the cable or jack. If you don't have a cablebox, it could be any cable wire, on the tv, in the wall, even outside. Try different outlets to isolate the problem. Let me know if I can assist more.

    If its not external to the tv, then its an internal signal loss, ie needs a new board probably. You have no signal on all inputs?

I have Dish sattelite and it won't work with memorex under cabinet. They said I need a cable box in between the dish receiver and the tv. Why is this?


You need a receiver for each TV you want to receive the reception on. Your dish receives the broadcast signal from the network and your receiver decodes and recodes the signal to view on your TV. The companies have created their own proprietary equipment to accomplish this to keep anyone and everyone from simply installing their own dish and receiving all of their broadcast channels for FREE. In the olden days when satellite and cable TV was new, that is exactly what people did. Remember those gigantic dishes some people installed in their yards? They would intercept the signals coming from the satellites and hook up directly to their TVs. The companies got smart and started to scramble the signals going up to the satellites to make these home owner dishes obsolete. Because the signals are scrambled, you now need a receiver to un-scramble the signal. I hope this helps and good luck. Please remember to vote d368a18.jpg if you found this helpful. Thanks.

NO signal since yesterday in area SY7 0QF on Tv can not get any picture or sound was working before


If there is no signal in the area.
I mean, if the problem is extended to more than one TV set, then call the TV provider company.
If the problem is concerning cable TV (eg. NTL, Virgin), then a local node may be faulty.


If the problem is only on your TV, and the TV has no signal, or static, then check aerial, aerial cables, receiver box and signal booster if present.

If you use cable TV, check wires and receiver box.
If you have Sky TV, then check if you have sat signal, check box and cables.
If you do not find anything wrong call TV company.

If instead your TV stays off with power led on or blinking, then the TV is in fault mode (protect).
Try leaving the TV unplugged from power for one hour. If that does not fix the problem, then call the number listed on the owners manual for support, or ring a local technician.

Bad picture


  1. Hello boss, here is d way to make best use of it.
    step 1.Make sure ur LCD or Plasma HDTV has an HDMI port. Hopfuly u bought 1 with it, if not, you may be stuck using component cables. Not bad, but not he best. Component cables change d digital signal frm the cable box into an analog signal. This conversion allows for signal degradation. U want to keep the digital signal transmitted frm the cable company 2 go directly into ur HDTV. An HDMI cable will provide u wid this capability n with d clearest picture.
    2. Make sure ur cable box has an HDMI port. Most cable companies do not offer a cable box with an HDMI port on the initial install. You may need to upgrade by calling your cable company and asking if they have a cable box wid HDMI capability. Ask them 2 send u 1.
    3.Purchase an HDMI cable. TIP - The longer d distance between the cable box n d HDTV, the better d quality HDMI cable. This is due to degradation of d digital signal over long distances, wiz could result in a poor quality picture. ne distance over sixteen feet should be compensated 4 by using a heavier gauge HDMI cable. Oh yea, don't get taken by buying the most expensive cables. From what I have read, companies are cashing in on this relatively new technologymag-glass_10x10.gif. I bought my "gold-plated" HDMI cables from an Ebay Store, "eforcity" for about a quarter of the price found at the local electronic store. Connect one end of your HDMI cable into the HDMI (out) port on the back of your cable box and connect the other end to the HDMI (in) port on the back of your HDTV.55
    Read the instructions that came with ur new HDMI compatible cable box. These instructions will explain the download process the cable box needs to go through before use and the Setup Wizard that will program the cable box to send the correct picture format to your HDTV. If u did not get instructions, u can get them at the cable box manufacturers website. Scientific Atlanta's website: http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/new_cableboxes.ht64. Adjust video, audio, and screen settings to ur liking. The explanation for these settings can be found in ur HDTV's user's manual.75.Push ur "source" button on ur remote control or HDTV n select HDMI. Tune to a Hi-Def channel. Most Hi-Def channels r in the 700 channel range. Check cable company listings 4 d specific channels.
  2. Have a nice time!!

Guide plus on my rca p52937 tv


You are right, the Guide Plus is transmitted to your tv over the air. If you have a cable company supplying your programs, your Guide Plus will not receive a signal to set up. You will need to get a two-way splitter. It has two connections on one side and one on the other. The side that has one connection goes to your tv. The side that has two connections will connect to your cable supplier and the other to a rabbit ear or outside antenna. Then the tv has to be off over night to restore your Guide Plus.

Poor cable tv reception.


Problem is direct "ingress" of the terrestrial signal from the TV station (off-air) on to the cable along with the signal from the cable company. Typically caused by faulty/bad/cheap connectors and cables. If you are certain that the signal is clean from the cable company, then the best solution is to replace the cable in your home with good quad shielded cable, with good tight connections made. You could start by checking all "F" connectors top see that they are snug. An amp may increase the signal enough to overcome the ingress and help a bit, but it usually just amplifys the same signal.

Is it the DCT or the cable signal?


if you are getting signal of the proper strength and quality the cabling is good.the problem is the box trying to decode the signals.a lot of signals are encripted and have to be decoded by the box.if the box is not responding fast enough you will see bloches on the tv.if you see scrambled channel you are not payinfor that channel.and if you are paying for a channel and it comes up scrambled your box is not working correct.get your company to upgrade the box.
