Would like to talk on the phone

You can pay extra for that. I will not be calling you, but all the other experts will see your request and one of them might call you. Until then we can continue this chat...

Please try to get the model number off the back/side of the tv. If not:
-when did you buy the tv?
-what brand is the tv?
-what size is the screen?
-is it LED or LCD or Plasma or?

Please refund my 28.00 this service is to much of a hassle with all the fees

Because I am not a site employee, only a technician here to help you with technical issues, they prohibit me from discussing billing so please see the website help pages.

Just keep in mind that a local repair shop will charges $99-$120 up front for an in home diagnosis. So by using this service you can actually save a ton of time and money.

Hitachi

What port on the tv is the cable box connected to on the back of the tv?

examples:

-hdmi 1

-hdmi 2

-component

-AV

-rf coax

Customer reply replied 5 days ago
HDMI 1

Then you can simply ignore the "auto channel scan" message. Simply change the tv to the HDMI 1 input using the Hitachi remote. Look for a button on that remote called INPUT or SOURCE or TV/VIDEO. Press it, then choose HDMI 1.

Let me know how it goes.

Says weak or no signal

You were able to change the tv to HDMI 1, correct?

Ask Your Own TV Question

Please try this:

-leave the tv ON

-locate the POWER cord for the cable box and unplug it.

-reseat the hdmi cable on the back of the tv AND back of the cable box

-plug in the cable box power cord

-watch the tv screen as the box boots up

Let me know how it goes.

Still says weak or no signal

Try moving the hdmi cable to HDMI 2 on the tv, then use the Hitachi remote to put the tv on HDMI 2.
