Welcome! I am an experienced electronics field technician and your satisfaction is my top priority. We are now connected together on this convenient website which saves you time and money vs much higher repair shop diagnostic fees.

To get started, I need to know you are able to reply to me here...

1. Do you change channels with the Comcast remote or with the original tv remote?

2. Exactly what is on the tv screen? all black? or error message? or all blue? or?

Ok. Plse explain why I cannot speak to anyone on Comcast Xfinity 800 number
TV Technician: Mike G., Technician replied 2 years ago

Comcast is currently having a regional outage. You are the third customer here stating they have no tv and cannot get through on the phone to Comcast. Likely because everyone else is trying to call in at the same time to report the problem. I am sure Comcast is working to restore your service.

Sorry for the inconvenience the cold snap has damaged soem equipment.

Please rate my service thus far.EXCELLENT (5 Stars) would be greatly appreciated.

Remember that I am here to help you. Please reply back if you need clarification on any of the above.

Regardless of what you decide to do next, please take a moment to click the 3 to 5 STARS rating at the top of the page. Keep in mind that I have donated my invaluable time and expertise helping you rather than other paying customers.

Rating now does NOT close the question or prevent us from continuing our conversation here. My livelihood truly does depend on your positive rating.

Clicking the "bad/poor" rating does NOT do anything to fix your issue, nor does it issue you a refund.

Thank you,
Mike
