I get a weak or no signal message on my new Samsung plasma. I'm using coaxial to my cable box. The cable works fine because I can see the vcr when it plays. I have it set to cable on the right channel for my area (4).

In this case, your VCR becomes the cable channels tuning device for your TV, the better connection should be from your cable box output to your antenna/cable TV input with the coaxial cable, surely, your TV has a better cable tuner than your VCR, to connect the VCR to TV you can use its AV outputs to an available AV inputs of your TV, you can get a better sound and picture in this way.

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 Samsung TV work fine. My RcA VHS VCR when I want to record the screen said WEAK or NO SIGNAL


VCRs use Channel three or Four to watch the tape. It is better if you use the video out on the VCR to go IN to the TV video In on a modern TV.
For record, the VCR cannot see Digital TV. You must connect the Digital TV box or satellite box Video Out to the Video In on the VCR.

Here is a cheap and easy way to connect this for you....

Get a VCR (often times can be found at goodwill or garage sales for very cheap) and connect the coax cable from the output of the Converter box to the Antenna/Cable in on the VCR then connect from the RCA output from the VCR to the TV. Tune the VCR to Channel 3 most likely and change channels through the converter box.....

Turn on goes blue then turns off


The most common reason for a TV to display a blue screen with no picture is because the source device has not been set to the proper mode.

If you are using a cable or satellite set-top box, ensure that it is turned on and set to an active station. If the set-top box is connected to the television using a coaxial cable, then the television should be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.

If you have are using a VCR that is turned on, but not playing a tape and not tuned to a receivable channel, then a blue screen will be displayed on the TV. To resolve this, turn off the VCR or tune it to a receivable channel. If a cable or satellite set-top box is connected to the VCR using a coaxial cable, then the VCR should normally be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.

If the blue screen is not because of a connected VCR or set-top box, the TV may require service.

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.

Coaxial to component


You may need an extra HD tuner for your TV. The only problem that you may have would be the original signal running through the coaxial cable. If it's just regular TV stations, the tuner should fix the problem.
