Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
A box. What do you mean by input?
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 months ago

Look on the back of the set,the box will be connected by a lead or leads where these leads enter the set they are labelled for example HDMI or COMPONENT or COMPOSITE if you do not know then let me know what type of leads they are

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
One is Cable input. The other is To TV.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 months ago

OK please do this re-boot both the TV and the box by disconnecting both from wallpower wait 5 mins then replug back in again let me know if there is any change

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No change.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 months ago

OK I will now need to know for sure what leads are going from the box to the TV what do they look like please?are they red\green\blue so three leads in all with 2 for the sound?or yellow\white\red?or hdmi?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 months ago

Or is there just a lead going into the antenna socket?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Just a lead to the antenna socket.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 months ago

OK

What you need to do is get the TV out of component mode,the set is in the wrong mode,so you need to pick up the TV remote and look for the INPUT button keep cycling this button (press once very second) until you choose the TV option,this is the antenna option (box is coming in on antenna)

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Nothing changed.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 7 months ago
