Move all around on the screen
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 12 months ago

O.k then pull the cable box`s power cord off the wall outlet (cable box only) for a minute.
In the mean time turn off the tv and turn it back on only after you plug back the cable box power cord.
Note that it may take a couple of minutes for the cable box to reboot after you plug it back ,just give it time.

Let me know how that goes and please take the time to rate my answer positively (use the stars to rate) if that answers your question / does the trick as it is the only way i get paid for helping you , otherwise do not rate at all , just let me know and we`ll try something else.
Note that you can reach me here still at any time after rating if you have questions.

Still the same problem
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 12 months ago

O.k then look on the TV's remote for the INPUT button at the top and press it repeatedly , you probably are just on the wrong input

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 12 months ago

You are probably in tv mode while you need to be with one of the HDMI input , try to select them one at a time in the input list if pressing repeatedly doesn`t change the input

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 12 months ago

If you`re not sure where the cable box is connected then look at the back of the tv to see what it says and then set your tv to that input

I can not connect HDM1 because the comcast box does not have to connect is very small
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 12 months ago

Not following you here " does not have to connect is very small "

What type of cable /connection do you have between the cable box and tv ??

Is it a round coaxial cable in the TV's antenna terminal or HDMI or even color coded plugs ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 12 months ago
I will change the box of comcast for another bigger one to see what happens
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 12 months ago
