Yea ... sounds to me like the INPUT selection on the TV is incorrect. Double-check, just to be sure. Should be on CBL or ANT, depending on age of TV and where the coax is connected to the TV. \ken

Most likely issue is one of the cable ends.. They come off fairly easily.

Inspect, the white center insulator should come to the end of the hole inside the nut, if it's pulled back the end is coming off.

If you have someone (IE: ME) who has the tool you can get some very nice COMPRESSION ends that go on there, requires a special tool to apply them (Runs about 50 bucks,, I got mine cheap) but.. they do not often come off.

Just took a length of "Bad Coax".. Cut a couple feet off each end to get past where moisture had wicked back into the shield and applied a pair of compression nuts... Works great.

Run a length of coax from the box to the bedroom tv and see if that solves the problem. If it does, at least you know it is the coax and not something else and then you can address the problem without tearing into something for no reason.
