Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m Jack , i will be helping you todayCan you please send me a reply when you are ready to proceed ?
Is the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?If you`re not sure then darken the room and turn the tv off and on again while you observe the screen .
What message , "no signal " ?
Any message on the screen means the screen is lit and that is what I was asking
Can you see the tv`s own menu for example ?
O.k then check you input connections
What do you have connected to it anyway ?
And how is it connected ?
Color coded cables or HDMI ?
What type of cables for the connection ?
At this time the TV's model number might come in handy as well ??
Pull the cable box power cord out for 20 secs and leave the tv on then see if anything show up on the screen while it reboots ?
O.k then red/white and yellow would be rca type plug and a composite connection but that white cable for the dvd , what is that HDMI ??
Where did you connect those red/white/yellow cable ?
At the rear side below the HDMI 2 port ?
O.k then you mean a dvd /vcr with coaxial out , in that case your tv needs to be set on channel 3 or 4 for that one and set to video input for the cable box and you need to have the yellow cable/plug connected in the GREEN video terminal that says Y , both on the tv and cable box
What you missed here is that yellow plug in the green terminal .
You dont happen to have a spare stereo cable do you ,or two extra rca cables like you have now ?
You could have a component connection with 5 cables and get a much better picture
Better yet , does your cable box have a HDMI out terminal at the back ?
A $10 HDMI cable would really fix all this and give you the best picture
Here is the manual for this tv by the way ; http://www.funaiservice.com/manuals/EMERSON/LC320EM2/LC320EM2.pdf
yu already have one in the antenna /cable terminal dont you ?
antenna input is just below those color code cables on the side , look on page 10 of the manual
well that round coaxial cable would go there
yes and ???
What is on the other hand of that cable ?
other end I mean
Have you got the cable box working yet ?
and is that working now ?
I don`t think this will work , you need someone to help you right there on location or perhaps someone in here will help you with this .
I`m sorry but I will have to opt out now.
You don`t have to do anything , your question will be reposted for other techs. to see and jump in.Please just standby and someone should be with you shortly .PS. DO NOT rate or it will hinder the repost .

Sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with this but I’ll do my best to help you out.
Jack has opted out of the question,
I can help you here, but it sounds like you may need some additional help beyond the limitations of this chat format, so we can talk by phone if you prefer.
To start, what is the model of the cable box?
Do you need more help with this?If so, simply reply back on this page.
