Hello, and sorry you're having problems. There's many different ways you can connect this box to your TV as it has many different types of outputs on it. Currently what cables and jacks are you using/plugged into?

Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

Let me know when you're able to see my reply.

Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

No thank you, ***** ***** take a phone call right now. If you'd like to continue, please reply back on this page.

Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

If you can just tell me what color cables you have plugged into what ports on the TV we can proceed.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
One coaxial cable from tv to iconvert
Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

Thank you. On the back of your Ikonvert box, do you see a set of jacks that are colored Red,White and Yellow please?

None
Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

Okay, you don't want to use the coaxial cable on this TV.

Remove that cable and instead run a set of Red,White and Yellow "RCA-style" cables (the ones that fit these jacks), to the back of the TV, where the jacks are labeled "Input 1".

Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

None? You lost me. You replied "Yes", then replied "None". Please elaborate what you're saying here.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I still have my cable , I'll have to find a set of those cables.
Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

Okay. Plug those in instead to the jacks on Input 1- back of the TV.

Then the other ends into the RWY jacks on the TV.

Then use the Mitsubishi remote's "Input" button to select "Input 1" and you'll see the setup screen for the Ikonverter box show up on your TV.

From there you'll use the Ikonvert remote to run through the setup prompted on your TV screen.

If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. You can follow up at any time if needed.

That is done
Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

What is done? I provided all of the steps above including running through the setup on the Ik box. So where exactly are you stuck?

Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

What have you done exactly so far? You have the cables connected, did you select Input 1 on the Mits? If so, what do you see on your screen?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I am getting a no signal on a black screen
Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

Then you didn't plug into Input 1, or select Input 1, or you don't have the Ikonvert box plugged in or turned on.

Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

One of those three things are missing. So tell me what you did and I can help you.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
it is plugged in correctly And it says input one. An iconvert page showed for about 20 seconds the the no signal showed
Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

Sorry, something's not right here. I will need to opt out and allow someone else to help.

Think I got it! Thanks
