television loss of signal


television loss of signal

Last week for the first time my television lost its signal and now it's beginning to happen w/more frequency. Of course this means rebooting often and my shows aren't recording. Any suggestions on how to fix this before the problem gets out of hand like I've read about on other posts

jenck - The loss of signal message presented by u-verse has a long list of suggestions. The first suggestion should be wait five or ten or fifteen minutes. When I used to get it. It always came back. The cause could be just about anything.

Check the RG. If the broadband light is blinking red, it is either the RG or outside the house. If it is green & you have coax connections, look for a loose connection. Sooner or later, you will probably have to replace the RG.

If it is the TV that is generating the message, it is probably the HDMI interface acting up. Try component.

Re: television loss of signal

Hi jenck,


I am sorry to hear of the troubles you are having with your television service. The information aviewer provided about the broadband light is a great help when troubleshooting. But if the broadband light is green as he stated, and only some TVs are having issues, and not all, check the connections and make sure they are tight.

If you still notice issues, definitely reach out to us by sending us a message by clicking here. Be sure to include your name, phone number, account number, and the best time to reach you. We will be glad to get your issue escalated to the appropriate departments to get this resolved.
