yes it does


 

Hi

At this point you almost certain have a problem with the box (satellite or cable)so please check the lead initially that goes from the TV to the box make sure its home and good, then reboot the box by unplugging it from wallpower waiting 5 mins then replugging the box back in again as in some cases a software glitch in the box can cause this.

Let me know what happens when you do those two checks.

I am sending a rating bar please only rate if problem resolved or a conclusion reached if not please press "reply to expert" without rating and I will continue to help

still no picture.Could it be that HDMI is not working correctly.?

Hi

Yes it could well be swop the lead if necessary

If you have another input like a dvd try that if that works OK then its a box problem, you may need to get the box swopped

Let me know if you need more info

tried plugging DVD player with s-video and still no picture.Also tried HDMI from dvd to Tv still no picture.I cycled through the imputs on tv to see if any showed picture. No luck

Hi Mike

Thats really unusual for this type of issue if thats the case then that you have no signal from the dvd too then it is a signals board problem.
The set is not recording an error and is in the ON mode so its running with no signal, the signals board will need to be replaced, do you think you can do that yourself ?I will provide more details.

Let me know please
