Do you have a cable box or connected directly into the wall outlet ?
Try to set your tv on channel 3 or 4 if you have a cable box then use the cable remote to change channels
What type of cable(s) did you use to connect the cable box to the tv , is it a single coaxial cable connected in the tv`s antenna/cable terminal at the rear or color coded cables/plugs ?
What you need to do now is to check where the cable box is connected at the back of the tv .
Is it ant. 1 or 2 , color stream 1 or 2 ,video in 1 or 2 then set your tv to that input .
How about a coaxial cable in the antenna terminal , just like a vcr , do you have such a cable ?
Connect it into ant. 1 for example and that cable box will have a RF /TV out for the other end of that cable
Click the link below , that's a coaxial cable and yes same type as the one from the cable company
O.k then it has video cables so never mind the coaxial .
Where does it connect in the tv ?
What does it say , video in 1 or 2 , set your tv to that input by pressing the TV/VIDEO button on the front of the tv if the remote doesn`t work
Make sure the yellow jack both on the cable box and tv are using the yellow plug , that's the video signal
Again , look what it says where it is plugged into the tv and use that tv/video button to set the tv to that input and that is that simple
