Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Two things that will cause the “No Signal” message to come up are - no data available for closed captioning and a weak signal input. Your TV is in the Closed Captioning Mode. To turn it off simply bring up the on screen menu and scroll down to the part that says closed captioning and turn this function off! With the closed captioning block displayed and the program being viewed is not sending out closed captioning signals the TV will display, No signal! Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    No options in menu to turn this off. Manual or automatic. Neither mode worked. This set is on cable.

    Then the problem is with the processor failing and it is
    causing a random read of the EPROM to display the not available message. I’ll
    suggest you to run the HDMI from the PVR (personal video recorder) directly to
    the TV (mute the TV), and then run the optical audio from the PVR directly into
    the receiver's optical in. If the issue does not resolve then use Component
    cables. After using components cables the issue will be resolved. Please do
    accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further
    assistance.





    Thanks

Possible as you have suspected the firmware can be corrupt or have errors. Since you have not mentioned the make/model the details we are not able to comment.

Sometimes when changing channels it indicates "no input". Sometimes you can go to previous and then back and the channel will come up, other times, you need to power off and back on as the TV totally...


This actually sounds more like a signal issue on the cable box. When you go from regular digital chs to HD channels sometimes boxes will distort or pause the picture when changing channels (it's not the cable or satellite, it's your TV trying to read the different format of the chs) this is normal. Also, some TVs may need to have a firmware update and you can normally get it from the Manufacturer's website

Motorola DCH3200 cable box: sound and sometimes video cutting out


Sounds like your SNR is getting too high and causing the signal to overload. A few things can cause this a bad splitter that causes the signal to bleed and introduces noise, or a more common issue is having a weak signal coming from the cable provider and once it goes through a splitter it causes the signal to become to weak to be stable.

Since it sounds like your cable has been working up until recently, you may have had a cable or splitter go bad.

Call comcast and have a technician come out and test the line.

Front Audio Video inputs not working


What model TV is it?
it may be you need to change the input to video 1 or video 2 to get those front jacks to work. if there is a TV/Video button on the front you should be set. If not you may need the remote control. Sometimes changing the channel to below channel 1 will give you that option.
