Question about Televison & Video
Tv will constantly turn off along with grainy background that says "no signal" and loud noise that occurs when the tv turns off. Then the tv turns back on and does it over again. Not sure if it is the cable or the tv itself. It does this for every channel. I tried plugging and unplugging the tv and retwisting the cable cord. I do not have a cable box

SOURCE: HDMI connectivity
I have the SA8300HDC STB from Time Warner. I get this error from my DVD recorder, not from my HDMI connection. I've read that the error is due to copy protection. The only solution I've read about has to do with a new Samsung Set-top box from TWC. Funny this copy protection error didn't ever come up with my old VCR connection to the HDTV. TWC apparently told a lot of people that the problem would be solved by a software update from TWC in October 2007 & then in December 2007. Guess TWC isn't sure what the problem is but everyone who has mentioned this Samsung cable box has reported success with their HDMI connection.

You should check your home wiring and grounding. Also be aware of anything that has recently been turned on when this happens. Anyone using a microvwave, cell phone, or other appliance that might be causing the interference.

I had the same problem. I changed the 4-3 setting on the motorola cable box. Turn off your cable box and press menu. My 4-3 setting was set to auto. If you turn it off, you lose the 4-3 aspect on most channels. I changed mine to 480p and so far it seems to be working. Worth a shot.

There can be several causes for this, few of which you can do anything about. However, a few things to try:
1) Replace the batteries on your remote control.
2) Try resetting the logic functions on your tv by unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.
3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop.
4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-video system? Changed to a new remote?
I hope this helps. Joe

could it be Ch 9's digital signal is not broadcasting right? what is your refresh rate on your tv? 60 or 120hz? if its 120hz, then its more then likely the digital broadcast, if its 60hz I think its your tv can't keep up with their signal that may be at 120hz. Make since??
