What do you do when your cable TV goes out? Maybe you canceled all of your weekend plans so you could have some “ME” time, or you invited your friends over for a sleepover and you find out that your cable TV is on the fritz! What to do? In this article, we are going to discuss how to fix your cable TV connection. Sometimes it’s not a big issue and it just needs a simple fix or troubleshooting procedure to get things back to normal. Before it ruins your night, please follow these tips and your chances of fixing your TV by yourself are good.

1. Restart your TV

It might sound a myth or a cliché but it really works in most scenarios. Try turning off or unplugging your TV and then switching it back on. Chances are, it may have malfunctioned and needed a power cycle. Either do it from the power button on the device or you can also unplug from the power point and plug it back in after 30 seconds.

2. Review the error code on your TV

Your device might have an error which you can check if it’s displayed on your TV – try to get that error or number code – it will help you find out the issue very conveniently. You can then review your user’s guidebook or website of the provider for further details on how to resolve this issue.

3. Check the cables

The issue can be any sort, so make sure all the cables are plugged in correctly before doing anything else; input and output cables are inserted according to the instructions mentioned – from the cable box to television set.

4. Check the signal integrity directly

You can check the stability of the connection from TV to cable device directly by making sure it is not connected to any other thing such as the VCR/DVD, game console, surge protector or other devices.

5. Pay your bills on time

Also, make sure that you do not have any overdue payments, this may be the reason your provider has deactivated your service until the payment is processed. If by mistake, you have missed the deadline – pay online and enjoy your TV with whatever plans you might have made.

6. Review your activation limit

If you are trying to use the same cable box after relocating to another location. The activation limits are designed within the set-top box itself and might require resetting the activation limit with the help of your provider.

7. Verify any reported outages

There are times when your cable provider may be down due to scheduled maintenance or unscheduled circumstances like severe weather conditions, which can interfere with the delivery of their service. They usually announce an estimated time when the services are going to resume, either on their website or through their customer support service.


These are just a few of the easier TV hacks which everyone who owns a TV should know. We typically take TV for granted until it’s gone. For those unforeseen circumstances when you lose your connection you could end up fixing the wires or restarting the device. The best way around all of this is to get charter spectrum TV in order to ensure hiccup free service and smooth experience. Especially is you have planned to spend your time with TV and are relying on this particular source of entertainment.
