No SIgnal ON Samsung TV

by sunkissed64 / August 16, 2007 3:36 AM PDT

Trying to figure out why a brand new tv I purchased for my grandmother would be displaying a "No Signal" message on the screen as well as not displaying any cable image.

The tv is brand new it's a Samsung TX-T2782 tv and it's connected to cable without the use of a converter box. My guess is that she's pressed the wrong button by mistake on the remote control. Problem is she's calling me at work and I'm not there to be able to try and fix it.

Any ideas?

was it ever working?
could be the cable is hooked-up to the antenna input or the tv is just set to the wronge input. On my 3-4 year old samsung lcd tv there is a button on the remote labled 'Source' to change the input, if samsung kept that on there remotes, have her click on that until is gets to the cable input. If still nothing could be a the cable.

The tv was working fine. My grandmother has no clue how to do much more than turn the tv on and switch the channels. I'm thinking that she hit the wronmg key by mistake. It will have to wait til I get home because there's not much I can do from work but I'll make sure to try the Source button first.

I have a samsung tv in my bedroom and all of a sudden I was getting a "no signal" message. Thanks to the response here all I had to do was hit "source" button and there was my picture!! Thanks a lot, great information!!! Apparently when half asleep I must have hit the source button once rather than the off button.

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
