Question about Flat Panel Televisions
I can't get cable TV to work. It shows weak or no signal. OTher TVs in the house work, so it's not the cable.
I can use the DVD and the gane systems, but not the regular TV, an ideas? Bought new 37" Samsung and get weak/no signal for all HD channels. Other HD TV receives excellent reception. Spent all day Sunday redoing cables, connections and eliminating splitters. Even bought amplifier to strengthen signal. All efforts netted same result: one TV very good, Samsung zero. Geek squad to come in two days to check out. This appears to be similar to a modem problem I had a few years ago with a new computer. Jumped through numerous tech support hoops for a week or two before exchanging the computer for a new one that worked right out of the box.
Your cable line coming to the house may be fine, but each device has a section of cable running to it separately. This will be coming from one or more splitters leading from the main cable. Follow the cable line that leads to your new problematic TV, to verify that both ends of the cable are firmly connected.
If you use a cable box then send the signal to this TV, be sure you have the cable/cables correctly and firmly attached/seated in order to get the full signal strength.
Also make sure that the cable is sound and not damaged or frayed in any way from end to end.
