My downstairs TV has a snowy screen that says, "weak or no signal." I have unplugged it and waited 30 sec. and plugged it back in, but it will not connect. I have also checked all the cables. The upstairs TV works fine. What do you suggest I do next? Susan

Technician's Assistant: Are there any HDMI cables or A/V jacks (red, yellow, and white cables) plugged into your TV?

Yes.

Technician's Assistant: Was there a power outage recently?

No

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
