Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
I'm reviewing your details and will reply shortly.
What source is it that you're having problems with getting a signal from- is it a cable box, or a satellite box- something else?
Hi , I`m Jack , different tech. here
That is the exact message you are seeing " Signal cannot be decided " ??
And you have the cable directly into the tv , no cable box or converter ?
This used to work or is it a new setup ?
Sounds like you are trying to receive encoded signals
Did you check with your cable company to see if they may have changed the line up ?
Or even did a channel search /scan ?
So now all channels give you that message or just some ?
O.k then this is it , your cable company encoded all their channels and this is getting to be common now , they want to force you to get a cable box
Either that or antenna
Let me know if you have questions and if not for now then PLEASE DO TAKE THE TIME TO RATE (stars above and submit), it does not cost you anything more and does not close this post , Also you can come back at any time without additional charges if you have further questions or need help and it gets this independent tech. paid for his time helping you
Call them and have them send you a cable box or they may come around to install it
In any case right now it is either the cable box or your subscription that has changed , the tv is fine i`m sure
At the store ??
This is your cable company that supplies that , not a store
Do you have an active subscription with a cable company ?
Well yes they usually do charge monthly , I don`t know about the install but that is usually an extra charge as well although some company will give you a free install , you would have to check with them
Its either that or an antenna
There are many of the same channels but no its not the same
Do you mean that you don`t have a subscription to a cable company as we speak ??
I guess the cable company forgot about you but now its over , even basic cable without a cable box requires a paid subscription
Any questions on this ?If not for now then PLEASE DO RATE , it doesn`t cost you anything more and I get paid for my time.
If you cant find the rating system (stars at the top and SUBMIT ) then you can do it verbally here by saying like " I rate " excellent/good service
Remember that you can come back here at any time after rating (no additional charges) if you have other questions related to that
