It might be in service but not passing a signal to the TV. Have your cable company test it.

My digital tv is saying no singal whats the problem and how do I fix it? we have a huge antenna on our roof







1 – Is the NO SIGNAL issue happening on just one TV?
CORRECT INPUT or SOURCE
If it is just one TV that is showing the NO SIGNAL…
-Be sure your TV is on the correct source or input as your CABLE or SAT BOX.
-Press the TV button on TV remote control to turn your TV ON.
-Press the INPUT button on your TV remote control.
-Cycle through all the inputs on your TV.
-Do this until you are on the INPUT your CABLE or SAT BOX is plugged into.
-You should then see the CABLE or SAT programming show on your TV.
HINT: Your TV will most likely list the TV INPUTS as: HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3, VGA, Component 1, Component 2, and so on.
If you still see NO SIGNAL on your TV screen, see the next step below…

2 – If you have your TV on the correct INPUT or SOURCE and you still see NO SIGNAL…
CABLE OR SAT BOX NEEDS RESET
-Remove or unplug the power cable from the Cable TV or SAT set top box.
-Keep it unplugged for 2 to 3 minutes.
-Plug the power cable back into your Cable or SAT set top box.
-Give it some time for the Cable or SAT box to power up, get the signal, and initialize.
If you still see NO SIGNAL on your TV screen, see the next step below…

3 – If you have reset the Cable or SAT box and still have the NO SIGNAL…
UNPLUG THE CABLE GOING FROM THE TV TO YOUR CABLE OR SAT BOX
-Remove the HDMI cable or other cables from your Cable TV or SAT set top box.
-Keep the cable unplugged for 2 to 3 minutes.
-Plug the HDMI cable or other cables back in.
-Give it some time for the Cable or SAT box to get the signal and initialize.
HINT: Make sure all the cables that are connected to your Cable or SAT box and your TV are tight, undamaged, and secured.

4 – If all of your TVs are affected with the NO SIGNAL screen…
BE SURE THE COAX CABLES OR ETHERNET CABLES ARE SECURE or CABLE OR SAT IS DOWN TEMPORARILY
-Be sure to check the ones where the CABLE or SAT come into your home.
-Be sure ALL Ethernet and Coax cables are secure.
-Call your CABLE or SAT provider to see if there is an outage.

On my e-motion tv when I switch it on and go onto did it says no signal....help please


Why does my TV say no signal? If your HDTV or Standard TV displays a "No Signal" error message, it may be due to one of the following issues:
  1. Determine how many TV's are affected.
    • If it is one TV, continue to step two.
    • If multiple or all TV's are affected, continue to step five.
  2. Ensure that your HDTV is on the same source/input as your MTS Ultimate TV service.
    1. Press the TV button on your MTS Ultimate TV remote control.
    2. Press the TV/Video button.
    3. Wait 10 seconds.
    4. Repeat steps b and c continually to cycle through all the available source/inputs on your TV until the correct source/input is selected. (ie. HDMI 1, HDMI 2, Component 1, Component 2, etc.) On standard TV's (non HDTV), you may have only 2 choices, TV or Video.
  3. If the source is correct from step two:
    1. Unplug the HDMI cable from your MTS Ultimate TV Set-top Box.
    2. Wait 30 seconds.
    3. Plug the HDMI cable back in.
    4. Wait for the signal to initialize.
    5. Make sure all cables connected on the set-top box and your TV are secure.
  4. If the problem persists:
    1. Unplug the power cable from the back of the MTS set-top box.
    2. Wait 60 seconds.
    3. Plug the MTS set-top box back in.
    4. Wait for the signal to initialize.
  5. If you are still experiencing a problem:
    1. Make sure ALL Ethernet and/or Coax cables are securely in place.
    2. Unplug the power from the MTS box labeled 2Wire or Pace as well as the affected set-top boxes.
    3. Wait 60 seconds.
    4. Plug the power back into the MTS box labeled 2Wire or Pace.
    5. Wait for the broadband light to turn a solid green colour.
    6. Plug the power back into the affected set-top boxes.
    7. Wait for the signal to initialize.
Good Luck

Television say check signal cable . I have a scientific atlanta cable box.What do I do?


How is the TV connected to the cable box (HDMI, component video, etc.)? Make sure that the cables are securely connected and that the TV is on the correct input. Try swapping the current cables for new ones. (The HDMI cable has come loose on my entertainment system at times.) If you route HDMI cables via a sound receiver (cable box -> receiver -> TV), try a direct connection to the TV.

For my TV, I have to turn on one set-top box before I turn on the TV to get the signals to correctly synchronize. (Try turning off everything connected to the TV and then turn on the accessories first. Then turn on the TV.) For another set-top box, it needs to be turned on before the TV. (So try both options.)

Make sure that your set-top box is on and try a different TV or input if possible. If a second TV doesn't work with the box, contact the provider and check for a service outage. (Also try a different set-top box (like a blu-ray player) to check if it is the input on the TV.)

Note: I've had mice or other things damage wiring; this takes out the cable and phone lines. If this is outside damage, your service provider should repair the damage for free.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your TV and the connections that you are using for additional support.

We have a LG42lx6500. when you turn it on after being off for a few hours the picture colour is distorted for a couple of minutes before correcting. At times you can see the individual pixels. Sometimes...


Hello

Make sure TV is on the correct channel or input. Check the cables for correct routing from TV to any other devices. Check cables to ensure they are tight and secure.

An analog signal converted to high defintion resolution will cause lines, blurriness or fuzziness in the picture. Change the resolution to a lower or native setting using the media device (cable box, DVD,). This may be an issue that requires a service call to cable provider.

A problem on one channel may just be a error on that channel. If using an antenna, it might need to be adjusted in order to ensure good signal strength. For digtal channels, go into TV Menu. Check the DTV signal. Weak signal can cause picture distortion.

If another device is being used such as a cable box, DVD player or VCR switch between devices and test picture. Check routing of cables that are used to control the image. This should be a series of red, white and yellow cables.

If a VCR with a cable box, make sure the VCR and TV are set to the correct channels for video signal to pass through. If problem is still occuring, try another set of cables. bad cables can cause picture distortion.

Bad cables can cause picture distortion as well. Try another set of cables. If picture is better than when using the cables replaced, this was the issue. If cables are not an issue TV may require service.

closed caption can be blocked by the cable box- make sure cable box is set to allow closed caption.

on the TV, makes sure CC is set to CC1.

be certain you are on a Closed Caption program...all PBS stations are Closed Caption, all the time.

Connected cable box to tv with some audio etc 3 plug thing and no signal


Make sure that the TV inout is worrking by connecting a sourrce like a DVD to the input. If faulty the TV input section must be checked.
Secondly if the TV works the cable line from the provider to the cable box must be accessed by a signal tester. call the service provider to confirm the signal or if there is any break inthe line.
Finally connect the output to the TV with the correct connection of the video( yellow) , the red and white to audio inputs.

I have a 42inch lcd polariod tv and the screen comes up blue no picture or sound


It could be the blanking circuit displaying a blue screen if no or a weak signal is connected to the TV. If you have a DVD or VCR try to see if you get picture and sound when ether of those devices are connected to the auxiliary input. If yes your signal input is weak, or you are getting no signal at all. If you go into the TV do you see text? If yes make sure you’re on the correct auxiliary input. If no text is visible the problem is internal and the LCD driver circuit needs to be repaired. If you see text and you are on the correct auxiliary input, but you get no picture and sound then the problem is internal and the front end tuner needs to be repaired. If you see video and hear the sound make sure your channel is correctly selected and set to a working channel. If you have a cable box remove the input to the box and connect it into the coaxial input on the TV and see if you have a picture and sound. If you do the cable box is defective. If you do not see any channels the cable may have lost its signal, and you should connect the cable to another device to check the signal quality. If you have a satellite service provider, and you use a known working device to check the signal and the device works then the TV needs to be serviced.

Picture/audio problems on my HDTV


This is a cable box problem. Could be a lack of signal stregnth or bad HDMI output.

The SA boxes have a very bad history of this, try using the component video output and see if the problem persists.

The HDMI is a real glass jaw of those boxes; but this problem could absolutly be your incoming signal...high def channels require more signal strength and that is what causes audio drops, pixilation and flicker.

If it was the HDMI in the receiver/tv you would get:

- Black screen, Pink fuzz or green streak dropouts.
- "Fireflies"
- Audio cutting in and out
- Not pixilation!

So what is my approach? If the box is rented or under warranty get it replaced. If the problem persists then call your cable company and arrange a service call at their expense.

If the box is not under warrenty go ahead and call the cable company and complain about a poor signal. If the signal is good, use the component video output...it looks almost identical anyway.

Let me know if this helps,

Cheers!

Cable box only works during evening hours.


You need to schedule a service call to meter the feed to the house. You signal is lowest during the day since everyone is taking up bandwidth for internet access, thus dropping the signal to unusable levels. Have them meter the feed from their tower to your main panel then from your main panel to the modem or any box. Hope this helps

My hdmi port is not working


I have Verizon Fios and there's a known issue with the motorola HD boxes that they have bad hdmi ports, the screen goes green and that's it, nothing I can do about it I just use component cables. You need to be sure it's your tv not the cable box. Try the hdmi on a dvd player or ps3 or whatever else you have first just to be sure it's the tv at fault not the cable box. If you determine it is the tv you need to replace either the main board or the video board depending on your specific tv model. Some have the video inputs on the main boards some have video boards.
