Unless you've recently moved from Alaska to Texas and you're feeling a little homesick, chances are that the last thing you want to see when you turn on your fax list TV is snow. Combine a snowy screen with that loud, obnoxious static sound, and you've got a problem on your hands. Fortunately you don't have to be techie to fix your cable box - just follow these simple fax list troubleshooting steps to get picture back in no time.Make sure your cable box is plugged in. I know that sounds silly, but after troubleshooting these things over the phone professionally, you can trust me on this one. Save yourself the fax list time and embarrassment of calling a professional just to have them tell you to plug it in.
That goes for the rest of the essential fax list equipment as well (i.e. TV, VCR or DVR if you're running the signal through one, etc.). It wouldn't hurt to make sure the TV is on the correct channel - usually channel 3 or 4 or one of the input channels.Make sure all the cables are connected. Even fax list if you're TV and cable box are both turned on, you won't see a picture unless they are connected. Check each connection to ensure it is tight and that none of the wires or connecting pieces is damaged. Also check to see that the connections are all correct - meaning, video and audio should be going out of your fax list cable or satellite box to your TV "in" ports. The signal should follow a logical path.
If the connections are correct but you're still not fax list seeing any picture, replace the cables to see if that solves the problem. If you're running the signal through a DVR or VCR and having problems, skip the middle man and plug the cables straight from the box to the TV. If you get a picture you fax list know you're problem is in the VCR.After making sure everything is on and the cable connections are all correct, try rebooting your system. Each company's receivers have different methods of fax list rebooting, but one fairly universal way is to unplug the box for 10 to 20 seconds and then plug it back in.
