Your dtb-h260f likely has a bad capacitor in the power supply. See this link for more information:

now you just need to wake it up. turn it on using the remote supplied by your cabe operator. if anything it may be your remote that isn't working. does a "cbl" light or anything light up on the remote when you press the cable box power button? if not try to find out how to put it in cable mode and try again.

When I switch on the Unit the Power Light/Indicator keeps on flashing and nothing happens on the tv. The unit was working perfectly for the first 2 days. What could the problem be?

Tries the unit unplug,replug it back like an hour later for the unit to reboot and restart itself back to the factory setting.The unit should be working now.If the unit still have the same problems,the unit must have to be taken aparts and troubleshoot and fixed it power supply circuitry side of it PCB board.

I lost all the tv channels on channel master cm-7000 model and do not understand how to get them back?

First look at the indicator lamp on the front left side.
If it is:
off - check the power cord is plugged into a working outlet.
Amber - the unit is in standby, press the on button (left most), it should turn green
Green - the unit is in operate mode, check the antenna and cable connection.
Red - when power is applied, it will be red for up to 30 seconds. If it remains red, the unit is defective. This is a common problem due to several capacitors on the power supply and logic board that have gone bad. The unit is repairable by replacing these capacitors.

No picture, no sound

we need a request on what the blinking red light means on your model number and manufacturer of TV, we can then try to see what the blinking light means,(although it doesn't sound good) You ca always unplug the DVR and see if there is a change, then you would know it was the DVR
Thanks for the rating

My thomson DTI6300-16 red light keeps flashing

There is a known power supply fault on Thomson boxes. If you go to you`ll be able to order the parts needed. Be aware, you`ll have to be able to use soldering irons etc. as this requires you to remove components and refit new ones.
