TV Says NO SIGNAL – What To Check – How To Fix

I have an HD Flat Screen TV and when I turn it on it says NO SIGNAL. I have not seen this before as my CABLE BOX is connected and turned ON. I do not know if there may be something wrong with my Samsung TV or if it is the cable box causing my problem. I know my TV works because I can see it displaying the words “NO SIGNAL”. Is there maybe something wrong with the TV where the cables go in on the back of the TV?

tv NO SIGNALTV NO SIGNAL

If your TV displays a “No Signal” message on the screen (HDTV or Standard TV) it could be one of the 4 issues we have listed below…

1 – Is the NO SIGNAL issue happening on just one TV?
CORRECT INPUT or SOURCE
If it is just one TV that is showing the NO SIGNAL…
-Be sure your TV is on the correct source or input as your CABLE or SAT BOX.
-Press the TV button on TV remote control to turn your TV ON.
-Press the INPUT button on your TV remote control.
-Cycle through all the inputs on your TV.
-Do this until you are on the INPUT your CABLE or SAT BOX is plugged into.
-You should then see the CABLE or SAT programming show on your TV.
HINT: Your TV will most likely list the TV INPUTS as: HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3, VGA, Component 1, Component 2, and so on.
If you still see NO SIGNAL on your TV screen, see the next step below…

2 – If you have your TV on the correct INPUT or SOURCE and you still see NO SIGNAL…
CABLE OR SAT BOX NEEDS RESET
-Remove or unplug the power cable from the Cable TV or SAT set top box.
-Keep it unplugged for 2 to 3 minutes.
-Plug the power cable back into your Cable or SAT set top box.
-Give it some time for the Cable or SAT box to power up, get the signal, and initialize.
If you still see NO SIGNAL on your TV screen, see the next step below…

3 – If you have reset the Cable or SAT box and still have the NO SIGNAL…
UNPLUG THE CABLE GOING FROM THE TV TO YOUR CABLE OR SAT BOX
-Remove the HDMI cable or other cables from your Cable TV or SAT set top box.
-Keep the cable unplugged for 2 to 3 minutes.
-Plug the HDMI cable or other cables back in.
-Give it some time for the Cable or SAT box to get the signal and initialize.
HINT: Make sure all the cables that are connected to your Cable or SAT box and your TV are tight, undamaged, and secured.

4 – If all of your TVs are affected with the NO SIGNAL screen…
BE SURE THE COAX CABLES OR ETHERNET CABLES ARE SECURE or CABLE OR SAT IS DOWN TEMPORARILY
-Be sure to check the ones where the CABLE or SAT come into your home.
-Be sure ALL Ethernet and Coax cables are secure.
-Call your CABLE or SAT provider to see if there is an outage.
-Realign your Dish if you have SATELLITE.

    The cat walked on the remote control and now I have no TV signal.
    I am trying to figure out how to get the line back in on the TV, Yes it is hooked up to the internet.
    I have no idea how to get the line in for the internet to bring the cable into the house, and without this it will not work on cable.
    Just says Line on the TV.
    How do I bring back the line into the house to watch the TV.
    Checked all cords and everything good.
    Scrolled thru the menu and just can’t find out what to do.

    I am unable to get the free TV channels on my TV…it was working last night and this morning it is not working anymore…it says NO SIGNAL. We did unplug the cable from the cable box and the antenna plug from the wall behind TV for at least 3 mins. After that we plugged back all the cable and tried after 2 mins…it is still the same.

  12. Our TV signal has been intermittent in the last week, high pressure gets the blame, but at 8pm last night it went off with no signal, tried to reset this and no channels! We get the Stockland transmitter in Swest. There is a booster in the loft, could this have suddenly gone?

    Amanda,
    It seems as if your TV is set to go to a certain HDMI input when your TV turns on.
    Try removing the HDMI cable on the TV from input 2 and plug it into the HDMI input 1 next to it.
    This should make it so when you turn the TV to ON, the image will appear instead of having to change the inputs with the remote control everytime.

  14. My TV needs to be set to HDMI 1. Every time I turn it off it resets, and will say “No signal.” No problem, I would just grab the remote, press the input button and go through the various inputs–TV, HDMI2, video, PC etc etc. Now those are not even an option. They are grayed out so it only goes from TV to HDMI2. What can I do? I know the TV is old, and the cable-man told me if every time I have to rest the input, that means that my TV is on the brink. Is this true? And did my TV finally stop working or is there another fix? Also, if I need to be on HDMI 1 for it to work, is there a way I can change the cable wire to HDMI 2 so it could work? Any suggestions welcome.

  15. yesterday I wanted to watch my soap opera so I clicked on NBC and then I was stuck there nothing moving couldn’t click out removed my HDMI cable waited plugged back in nothing I think I’m still stuck in NBC

  16. I have an Insignia TV and a Samsung (cablevision) box. In the middle of a program, the TV went to no signal. I have unplugged the TV, removed the cable box completely and pressed the on/off button for 3.5 minutes, and tried another tv, still it shows no signal. WHY??

  17. I don’t have cable or internet. I bought a TV off a friend and trying to get channels on it. It came with no remote. All it says is no signal. Please help before I pull all my hair out!!!

    I have an Android TV box T95Z Plus. I hooked it up to my Sharp Roku TV and I am getting this NO SIGNAL message. I know that the HDMI cable is good and I know that the box is not damaged. I listen and watch several videos at Youtube and also your instructions and tried all of the recommended steps to resolve this issue and none of them works.

    I have a NO SIGNAL band across a snowy screen but I
    have a clear audio. This happened while watching, the
    TV works fine when down streaming Netflix. Tried all
    the above mentioned fixes

  20. My wireless box displays no signal. I unplug the power cord and plug back in and it cycles thru the “greeting” screen and it eventually turns on programming. The problem is I have to do this every time I wish to use the tv and it certainly causes frustration. Any ideas as to how to resolve this constant nuisance?

  21. I have a wall plate in my bedroom but when I put a cable from the tv into the wall port it says no signal I have a wall plate with three port in my sitting room as I live in an apartment block

  23. I put my tv on AIR. Hooked up an antenna and scanned the channels. I ended up getting just a few channels is all but was happy with it and it was going good one day. The next it was nothing at all. “No Signal” it says. I’m doing all of this on my tv buttons because I don’t have a remote control. On my tv. I have the options that say “PC. MEDIA. AV. YPBPR. HDMI 1 w 3. What should I have it on. Then if I stand in a certain spot it comes in and when I move it goes out. What am I doing wrong. It’s frustrating.. Thank you so much for your help.

But recently have gotten the ‘no Signal’ message despite resetting everything and checking all connections.

  31. I have been transferring my old VHS to DVD. My VHS is hooked up to my DVD (using red, white yellow cable) and my DVD to the TV. (using the metal connector cables – 3 + 1 out of DVD and 4 in a row in back of TV)
    All of a sudden after moving my equipment out a few inches – I am getting NO SIGNAL. But only when I try to use VCR. DVD still works fine and TV still works.
    I have taken things out and put back in but no help. Is it possible that my cables are bad – and moving things messed them up?
    I am so close to finishing 30 years of VHS – I have got to get this fixed

  32. Hello, for the last few days I have been constantly getting ‘No Signal’ displays on my tv in the evenings on both standard and hd channels.

    Good day. I only have my TV and dvd player hooked up and it still says no signal. I thought that was referring to the satellite signal and even with sat.box and all disconnected it still says no signal. Unless TV must have some type of antenna or something. Thanks for any help you may have. Paul

  34. I have a 45″ LG TV With Coax antenna cable, a hard drive for movies attached, and an Apple TV second generation attached. I get “No Signal” when I select antenna. This worked perfectly up until yesterday.. My second TV gets perfect reception and all under house cables seem intact. I also get “Netflix is unavailable” when I try to view Netflix via the Apple TV, but Netflix works fine on my PC via WIFI. I have tried unplugging all cables and leaving overnight, but still no joy

  35. I turn my hisense tv on and I get a blue screen with “no signal”. I press “source” on handset and usually I can scroll up and click on top item and signal is ok and freeview tv works again. This time, when I press “source” I get a list of input sources: DVB-C, ATV, AV, Scart, Component, VGA, HDM1, HDM2, HDM3, Media. Clicking on any of these does not work and I can’t get out of that list keeping appearing.

  47. I was watching all afternoon. Turned TV off for dinner. Returned after dinner and turned on TV again. Now it is showing NO SIGNAL. SPOKE TO Fios customer service rep (hard to understand) and we went through the same steps over and over. Still no correction of the NO SIGNAL issue. Why do we pay these high costs when we cannot watch TV when we want to do so? Tech scheduled for tomorrow. One time this happened and Customer Service Rep on the phone sent a signal and “walla” I had service again.

  48. im having the same problem and step 3 works.
    3 – If you have reset the Cable or SAT box and still have the NO SIGNAL…
    UNPLUG THE CABLE GOING FROM THE TV TO YOUR CABLE OR SAT BOX i just want to ask

    i just want to ask why does it happen? i didnt even touch the cable connecting from the tv to my cable box then suddenly the tv cant get a signal from the box. when i do the step 3 (or rather change the cables – the one connecting to the tv goes to the cable box then the one in the cable box goes to the tv), it works. but this happens often now. im just wondering if it’s my cord (video/audio cable) or my cable box that have a problem.

  49. Thank you so much for this update. Closest I’ve seen to any reply on the ‘no signal’ TV issue. We had pixels that were not working properly already, so I’m going to try the TCon board, almost certain, you answered and solved our issue. Thank you.

  50. I have a Vizio tv, 15 months old and having the issue with “NO Signal”. I tried all the step listed above and nothing is working. What is the next step?

    Hi I have a LG 50 PT 250 is the model number the picture is really distorted like the reception is bad but it’s only happening on this TV could it be from a buildup of dust in the back of the TV or does this particular model need a set top box with it

  54. I’ve tried all the steps listed (& then some).
    The one thing I’m noticing on the tv menu is that it’s not giving me the option to stop at “analog”.
    It just skips past it. I have an antenna on top of my roof on a 2 story home.
    My other tv is working fine, but I still checked the cables in the basement, the splicer & unhooked, then rehooked up everything.
    (The one that’s not working is running with a DVD player, so I unhooked that & still nothing.)
    This all started a few days ago & the tv kept shutting off (by itself).
    Today, it worked fine & then the picture froze. When I changed the channel that’s when it said “no signal”.
    I’ve cleaned every opening (vacuumed), I’ve unplugged, changed remote batteries, etc.
    I even tried the “factory reset” & now it won’t pick up any channels when scanned, but the other tv is working just fine.

  55. Thank you… finding the TV button & pressing the Input button worked! I was able to get HDM1 working again…

  56. My Nada 19″ tv has worked well for years on regular digital channels across the United States.Tv was working well at first then all the sudden I got NO SIGNAL. I unplugged, I double checked with my roommates tv, hers works. I plugged into her antenna NO SIGNAL again. Checked DTV signal is bad. We are hooked to same antenna just two cables with a splitter. Did fine for two months. Throw away tv?

  57. Thank you…the first step it says to try, fixed the problem. My TV said No Signal component 1 . I wasn’t sure what that meant, but when it said to scroll through the options after pressing input button, I realized the hdmi cable was plugged into hdmi2. When I highlighted that option, it instantly fixed the problem. Once again, thank you. I was seriously considering getting rid of my cable….not that that would be a bad thing!!

    Hi, I Already follow the instructions above, but still the error was no signal, it can’t even search a channel. What should I do now??

  59. I have a Vizio tv. The cable hdmi1 just suddenly went out. I performed all the steps above multiple times. I called my cable provider and they reset my box. I changed coax cables and got a new mini box. Still no signal.This tv is secondary and in my bedroom. The main tv and cable box in my living room is working perfectly. When i hook up my dvd player and change the input to AV i am able to watch dvds. Ive hooked up a different tv and it works perfectly. Unfortunately the tv I’m having issues with is much bigger and better quality. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  60. I have 2 TVs a bush and a logic the bush one wont get any signal I tried all of the above and it still wont work so I plugged my logic TV in and it worked fine what do I do to fix it?

  61. Have the same issue with my Vizio
    Got a new cable box, new remote…………….still getting NO SIGNAL

  62. I have two tv’s on a cable box and three without. The two on the box are fine, the others a=have no signal. I have tried everything and can’t get them to work. Any help please?

  63. We still get a No Signal message on our Insignia tv after we did all of the above. The other tv works fine. We swapped the HDM1 cables, & it works fine on the other tv. It appears that it is not the cable. What else can we do?

  64. I have 2 philips tv’s a couple of years old they both have been working fine and then all of a sudden they stopped recieving digital signal a “no signal” message appears when I turn tv on. I checked all the connections, tried reseting the stations, unplugged the tv and let it set then plugged it in. Everything looks good. I even unplugged the cable i use for the outdoor antenna and used an old cheapy rabbit ear type I bought at wal-mart, just to make sure it wasn’t my antennas problem on top of the house. So what I’m thinking is the broadcast antenna towers that the TV stations use to broadcast the signal might be malfunctioning. Who would i contact or what should I do? Thanks for your time.

  65. I have done everything that was required including talking to my cable provider which stayed there were no outages or problems with my wifi or internet. I am in need of help at this time.

  66. My TV Samsung was doing the same thing until I reprogrammed all the channels.
    Not in the setup but on the menu (plug and play).
    There is a video on youtube from SAMSUNG that guides you on that particular problem.
    My suggestion will be to try different inputs.
    Try connecting your cable box to another TV.
    Last but not least you may have a bad Main board on your TV.

  67. I have no signal on my TV.

    My problem was a bad TCON board.
    As soon it was replaced everything was ok.

    A $ 25.00 item fixed my TV problem and saved me a lots of money.

  74. 2 days ago both of our tv’s started showing the no signal message. We set both tv’s up December 2016 and have had no problems until now. We only have antanna tv, no cable.

Nothing has changed in my house so I can’t figure out what to do. Suggestions????

  89. We’ve tried all steps. We have an Android box and a Westinghouse TV. It was working fine last night.

  90. My Sharp LED TV shows no signal even when I have a signal from the cable box.
    I’ve tried the unplug everything and plugging it back but it still shows up.
    How do I get rid of the message?

  91. I have a Spectrum HD TV. I recently cancelled my Direct so I have been trying to use my Roku. The TV continues to show no signal floating around on the screen. Please help.

  92. For My VIZIO
    To Fix VIZIO No Signal
    When TV OFF
    Hold Down 2 Buttons MENU + INPUT
    Power will ON
    Change INPUT quickly within 3 Sec.
    To HDMI or Others

  93. I have a Veon 32 inch LCD TV.
    I moved to a new house and I still have a no signal on the screen.
    It’s like I’ve lost all my channels.
    I have retuned it multiple times.
    I’ve switched sources and everything and it still doesn’t work.

  94. Turn off TV, unhook cable from outlet, wait 60 seconds, plug it back in. Remove all TV remote batteries then start clicking all buttons including the back of VIZIO remote, click all buttons, even better to click all twice, do the same on Cable remote, click all buttons once or twice, put batteries back, turn TV & cable on and everything would be back to mormal, as if nothing happened.

  95. My LG TV in the bedroom goes off with a “No Signal” message at exactly 01:08 every morning.
    It is not a signal loss as other TV’s still work at this time.
    There is an RF loop through from a BT Vision box which if bridged out makes the TV show a picture very briefly then goes back to No Signal or shows a very poor picture for a moment then goes to No Signal.
    There are no regular ‘off times’ set in the menus and nothing to suggest why this is happening.
    I’m assuming it’s some kind of software/programming issue but updates have not solved it.
    If we switch the Youview on, the TV works perfectly via the HDMI input.

  96. I have tried everything.
    It still comes up no signal.
    I even hooked another TV up and it works.
    The model #e422va.

    Sangay dema,
    Yes try moving the DISH and make sure it is pointing in the correct direction.
    Be sure no trees or other objects are blocking the DISH.
    The DISH needs a “CLEAR” view of the sky.

  98. Tried everything. My panasonic tv still says no signal. Just moved to a new flat so maybe the aerial has a problem.What do you think?

    Yesterday my Vizio 55″ LCD suddenly displayed “no signal” figured it was the cable box (U-verse), but none of my inputs are getting any signal either (boy ray, Apple TV, fire stick). Definitely seems like a tv issue but I don’t know what to try?

  101. I still have no signal on TV screen after I have followed the above mentioned step.
    So now what I have to do in order to get signal?
    Do I need to tilted the dish or else what I have to do?

  115. Hi RR,
    Many, many thanks for your reply.
    Unfortunately, our old Daewoo died a death by the following morning.
    Nothing would work when she was turned on.
    No lights on the front nothing – so – she has gone to the big tv graveyard ”in the sky”.
    Since replaced by a Samsung series 6 tv.

    Petra70,
    Sounds like the TV may have an issue with a loose/faulty HDMI cable, the HDMI connections in the TV are shot or a circuit board issue.
    You may just simply have a loose wire or a faulty HDMI cable.
    Check to be sure the cables are secure, not damaged, and none of the connections are bent (on cables and TV).
    Have you tried switching cables and components?
    Are the cables connected correctly?

  117. We have a fairly old (2008) Daewoo LCD flatscreen tv – which has worked pretty well, until this morning.
    Problem: It will not stay on the HDMI channel.
    When HDMI is selected the tv seems to switch off and then come on again to the ”no signal” message.
    We use a Virgin Media Tivo box which is the ONLY source for the TV – via the HDMI input port.
    Normally . . . When the tv is first switched on, we get the ”no signal” message, and have to scroll through the multimedia channels with the tv remote until HDMI is reached, and then and only then can the signal from the Tivo can be watched.
    We also have a dvd player plugged into the tv via scart lead on channel AV1.
    AV1 and AV2 channels will also cause the tv to switch off (red light on… flashes… then green) and be back at the ”no signal” message.

    Colleen,
    Have you tried checking that the TV antenna wires are secure, tight, not damaged, and the antenna is in the correct place?
    Was the antenna moved?
    Do you have the TV in the correct INPUT?
    The TV needs to be set on ANTENNA when you cycle through the INPUTS.
    Try everything above and then run a CHANNEL SCAN for the ANTENNA not cable.

    What type of TV ANTENNA do you have?
    The newer flat small HDTV antenna or the older large roof antenna?
    Let us know if you get the Sharp LED TV working.

  123. I have a Sharp LED TV. I have no signal and I have tried everything you suggested. Except getting a new HDMI cord. When I first turn the tv on with the remote it says, analog 7.0 what does that mean? And also I have the no signal box on my screen. My tv was working fine and in the middle of a program I lost my connection. I don’t have cable tv. I have an antenna. Can you help?

  124. Thank you – My TV, just by unplugging and replugging the cables on the Internet box, it fixed the problem.

  125. DIY Project Help Tips

    Nora,
    You may have a bad coax cable wire causing the issue.
    If not then possibly your cable company was simply having issues at that time.
    Have you checked it recently. Does the issue still exist?

    Try replacing the cable from the cable box to the TV.
    Try resetting the cable box.
    Try resetting the TV to factory default setting.

    Pete,
    What component are you trying to connect and watch on the TV?
    Have you made sure the cable or cables are not damaged?
    Try using new cables to connect the component to your TV.

  131. My TV still has picture and volume, but still have the “no signal message” box in the middle of my TV. I have tried to do all the suggestions above but it won’t go away.

  132. DIY Project Help Tips

    Bijaya,
    The No Signal message means that the TV isn’t getting any input from the currently selected source.
    1. Check the label of the Input port (if you have many connected, make sure you follow the wires from the device to the TV to make sure you’re looking for the correct one)
    2. If your Remote has an Input/Source button, press it and choose the input from the list that matches where your device is connected.
    (If your Inputs have labels click All Inputs to see the Port numbers)

  133. I have an LG TV. Shows no signal message. Tried everything suggested by you. How do I get the picture back?
