Customer Question
Cable has been out...

Cable has been out for the last 4 hours. All that shows up on TV screen is "No Signal". What's going on?????

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

Sanyo with DVR. Approx. 4 years old

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Approx, 4 hours. Tried everything, but to no avail and of course, I can't get through to speak with a breathing person.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of

Hi,

You have reached a third party technical support site -- If you are trying to reach your cable provider then you have reached the wrong company although we can help you with your issue.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
