Hello, I'm Shahid. Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this and I'll do my best to help but need the following info to troubleshoot the problem.

- Is it Panasonic remote that came with the TV and not working now?
- Could you please get me the complete model number written on back cover or side panel of TV?
- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to the TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?

IT ALSO HAS A COX CABLE BOX; NO OTHER DEVICES. IT IS TURNING ON & OFF WITH THE REMOTE, SO I THINK THE CABLE BOX WORKS
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

OK, what happens when push the power button on that remote?

Does it switch On and Off the TV power?

IT DOES
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

That means remote is working with the TV.

How is the cable box hooked up to the TV?

With a cord
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

OK, is that cord hooked into ANT/RF input or AV input or HDMI input of the TV?

HDMI

ARE YOU STILL THERE?
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 6 months ago

Yes, I'm here

It seems the connected cable box isn't sending out video signals to the TV and should be rebooted

- Have you tried to disconnect TV and cable box power cords from the power outlet for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in, let cable box reboot that may take several minutes and check?
If not yet, please try it now and reply back with the result
