Hi , I`m Jack and I will be helping you today
Please note that I have no control over the phone (or other) offers , they are sent by the website ,not by me but let me know if you`d rather do this on the phone.
I`m an independent tech. that gets paid by this website once you rate me positively upon completion of this post .
Please let me know when you are ready to proceed .
Also ,Could you please give me the tv`s model number written on the back cover ?

First try this ;

Turn off the tv and cable box and pull out their power cords for a couple of minutes .

In the mean time pull out and right back in the hdmi cable at both ends a few times to clean the contacts and restart the whole thing again.

Note that it will take a few minutes for the cable box to reboot , just let it do its thing

Let me know how that goes
