ERROR MESSAGE NO SIGNAL INPUT


What is your TV signal source? Press the Input button on the remote and try another input. (Make sure a DVD player or set-top box is on.) If you are on the TV input, try a different channel. Next make sure that your cables are securely connected to the TV and devices. Replace with new cables to test them. If you use an OTA antenna with a splitter, try a direct connection. (Similarly, if you have an amplifier on the signal, try a connection without the amplifier.)

For OTA or direct cable connections, try accessing the Channel Setup menu and rescanning for channels.

I hope this helps.

(I get some weak channels that give No Signal messages when the transmitter has a problem or the weather is bad. I've also had a signal splitter/amplifier fail and block specific channels by becoming a filter. The direct connection identified the amplifier problem.)

Phillips 47 inch flat screen tv is 4 years old tv comes on but a box says no signal comes up what do I do


Check that you have the tv set to the current input and the correct channel (esp you have a set top box feeding the TV signal). Make sure that device is on and working. Check the cables for damage.

If you are using OTA, make sure your antenna is rotated in the correct direction. If you use an amplifier or splitter, try the signal strength without the accessory. Replace if the direct connection helps.

If the TV is connected to a computer, make sure that the port is active and sending a signal.

If none of these help, you may need to replace the video board or tuner (or both) depending on your source. (Some parts are available at partstore.com and shopjimmy.com (which specializes in minimally used parts from electronics damaged in shipping.)

I hope this helps.

''no signal'' message on blue screen after watching for 10-30 min


First try another signal input like a DVD player or other source, is the signal displayed ok? Then you have lost the signal on one input from whatever the device is.

Philips LCD 17PF8946/37 TV not working


The good news is that the "No Input Signal" message means that your TV is not broken. If you are trying to watch cable, then you have simply turned the TV to the wrong input channel. If your cable comes into the Philips using a coaxial cable wire, use the Philips remote to change the channel to Ch.3 or 4 - whichever channel you normally watch cable on. Make sure the cable box is turned on if you have a cable box. If the cable box connects to the TV using another type of wire, use the Ch+/- on the Philips remote and go through all the AV channels until you find the right one. Good luck! Let me know if you need additional help.

Proron pltv-4250 no signal


THE BEST INPUT ON YOUR SET IS THE HDMI INPUT.2ND THE COMPOSITE INPUT. 3RD THE COMPONENT INPUT. AND 4TH THE ANTENNA INPUT. MOST DISH BOXES HAVE AT LEAST THE COMPONENT OUTPUT. YELLOW IS THE VIDEO AND RED AND WHITE FOR AUDIO. USE RCA CABLES TO GO FROM BOX TO LCD SET. ON THE DISH BOX YOU CAN GO FROM ANTENNA OUT TO THE CABLE OR ANTENNA IN ON THE LCD. SWITCH TV TO CHANNEL 3. AND TURN YOUR DISH BOX ON.

Weak or no signal message


  1. Since my problem (Samsung/Comcast) began with a channel selection button pushed on the TV remote when it should have been pushed on the cable remote, I figured the problem lay with the TV.  Although I was getting the "weak or no signal" msg., the actual signal strength bar graphic showed it to be strong. Disconnecting did no good. I surmised that the TV was simply not recognizing the box.
  2. I looked at the manual for my Samsung 750 model. 
  3. Page 20 discussed "Selecting the source". I accessed the TV menu and selected "Input", then chose the "HD..." item from the highlighted list. Voila! My tv works again.

FUZZY (SNOWY) PICTURE


Well, I can tell you it shouldnt have anything to do with your not having an HD box. The TV does not require a HD signal to give you a quality picture. The HD box only gives you the enhanced HD signal, but should work as any regular TV without it. How do you have it connected?

Receiver won't put out sound to LCD Sharp aquos


I have the same problem with my Sharp Lcd and Onkyo 804. I believe one problem is that the TV can not accept dolby digital or dts digital audio signals through HDMI. It will play sound if it receives a PCM signal through HDMI. You can try switching the type of signal on the cable box settings and on the dvd player. I switched to PCM and got sound through the TV and the receiver. The problem is that PCM is usually only a 2 channel signal and Dolby 5.1 will sound better through the surround sound theater system. I have not found an absolute solution to this yet, but I am willing to not get sound through the lousy TV speakers in order to get top notch sound through the Onkyo.
