The menu is working, volume is working. The screen is not just white, sometimes it flashes different colors.
Expert:  Shahid replied 9 months ago.

ah OK, it seems problem is coming from cable box. Have you rebooted it?

Please unplug cable box power cord from wall outlet for 5 minutes to reset, replug back in and let it reboot that may take several minutes to finish and picture will appear on TV screen.

Please reply back with the result.

Nothing is happening. Should I call Xfinity?
Expert:  Shahid replied 9 months ago.

Please check the connection cable runs from cable box to TV to make sure it is tight and securely plugged in both things.

If still get sound of cable channel but not picture then yes, call Xfinity and ask them to replace cable box which has stopped sending out video signal to TV due to internal failure.

I hope these info will help. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. If you're satisfied, please rate me a 5-star at the top of your page.
