No signal when hooked up with a digital cable box

I have it hooked up exactly like the instructions say when using a digital cable box and a coaxial cable. I have a dvd player hooked up and that works when the tv is set to AV2 and i have tried every other input to get the cable box working and they all just say no signal.

    Just moved my 32in LCD to my enclosed porch and attempted to hook up directly to standard cable but all I get is a "no signal" and blue screen.

    TV shows no signal with new digital cable box hooked up. Tried a second box (same result), and hooked cabe to back of TV and it works that way. Does the cable box need some type of programing?

I had the same problem and had the cable guy out and everything thinking it was my box. I figured it out by myself here is what i did to fix it. I have the vizio 32 inch hooked to an hdmi cable and through the cable box i had the aspect ratio on 1080i and i should have had it on 720p once I switched it I havent had the problem since.

My cable box is hooked up but no signal can u tell me whats wrong


If you hookup your TV directly to the coaxial cable, bypassing the cable-box, do you get a few channels? If so, then the coaxial cable is carrying a signal, which is good.

How are you hooking the output from the cable-box to the input(s) on the TV? Coaxial output port on box to coaxial input port on TV?
Red/blue/green "component" outputs on box to matching inputs on TV? Red/White audio outputs on box to red/white inputs on TV? HMDI output from box to HDMI input on TV?

You have to "tell" the TV which of the inputs:
* coaxial (with TV set to Channel 3 or 4)
* component
* HDMI
to "listen" to.

My dell w3201c tv displays "no video signal" when i power it on


Coaxial cable does not carry video signals but rather rf-signals
To use coax you will have to tune like you are searching for a signal from your aerial..
If you prefer to use video then you will have to use a video cable either rca or hdmi. you can then choose video or hdmi from the remote

Problems with Philips vhs recorder/dvd player


You only need coaxial cable to pick up TV stations broadcast via an aerial. If your TV has sockets to connect via HDMI or SCART, then any players can be connected via them. So if the adapter box picks up TV signals, you connect the main aerial cable to that and it should have a coaxial out socket, that should be connected to the aerial in of your TV. If you are recording to an analogue video from the adapter box, then that will need to be connected via a scart socket or other connection.

On the digital input 1 have the coaxial cable hooked up to blu-ray player but i have no sound, but if i hook up optical i do have sound.. wrong coaxial cable


Possibly a bad cable, but not likely its a 'wrong' one. Any RCA-style cable will do for SPDIF coaxial digital signals. Try another one. Are there other Digital Coaxial inputs you could try to prove the function?

You may have to configure your Digital Inputs so the receiver knows Digital Input 1 is Coaxial.

I have installed a Digitalstream DTX9950 converter box with my TV attached to a rooftop antenna. I can turn the TV off and on with the DTX9950 remote, but I can't bring in any stations, other than the DT...


Are you using the coaxial cable to connect the converter box to the set, or have you hooked it up with rca type video cables? The latter are highly recommended if you want a better connection and have audio/video inputs on the back of your television. But you don't want both A/V & coaxial.
Also be aware that some older antennae will not pick up digital signals well. Try to use a coaxial cable all the way up to the antenna junction. Find out where most signals are broadcast from in your area and aim the antennae appropriately. (Use a compass.) See helpful link here. Your converter remote should have a signal strength button that you can use to check the various channel strengths. If you're using a coaxial link to the tv and have little signal strength, expect a poor picture. You'll also want to select the Mono option for Audio Output in the converter menu.
Finally, depending on the age of your set, if you're using rca video inputs, use the TV/Video button or the AV button on the TV or universal remote to switch the input from the channel on your TV to the video 1 setting (or whatever picks up the digital converter signal) so you'll get that clear signal. Then you can use the converter remote to change channels, adjust volume, etc.

Bought a proscanlcd hdtv 32lb30Q unable to get cable signal


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls confirm if below is how it is wired using a coaxial cable and not 3cable RCA to RCA:
  • Charter Digital Cable > DVD/VCR > TV
If yes and your concern is snowy or no signal on the TV screen, might it be that you have to power OFF the DVD/VCR when selecting channels on the TV itself (including when channel setup is being done).

Alternately, you can tune the TV to channel 3 and let the DVD/VCR do the channel selections.

Pls post back results. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
