Cable Television Issues

  • Have you successfully set up your television and scanned for channels?
    • Verified that television has a digital/QAM tuner and is digital ready?
    • After scanning all available inputs (cable, digital, HD, etc.) no channels are recognized?
    • Have run channel setup for each available input option?
  • Have you checked your cables for proper connectivity?
    • Are the cords and cables plugged in to the correct locations?
  • Checked signal for all cable jacks in the unit?
  • Coaxial cable has been tested and determined to be working?
  • Have you tried another TV that works at the port (that previously worked elsewhere) and/or does the TV in question work elsewhere?
