Most of us.

When you turn on a Samsung, the red light blinks and then the set comes on. The TV plays one bar of music. There is no green light on the newer ones. Go through the menu and check for antenna or cable and select whatever is appropriate for you. Check also that the TV speakers are turned on unless you have it attached to the trailer speakers. For sound through the trailer speakers, you have to turn on the radio and it will find the TV setting (except it hasn't worked for years on ours except for DVD's so I just use the TV speakers for TV programming).

On the one in our trailer, there are 2 places to attach the cable—one for antenna and one for cable. I got some short pieces of coaxial cable and screwed each into the two antenna/cable inputs, attached a splitter to them and them screwed that into the trailer system. That was you don't have to switch the trailer cable every time you have a different input. The trailer system may be screwed into the cable system rather than the external antenna on the roof. That could be your problem.

If there is no red light on the set, check the breakers.

I've been snarky for 14 years and love it. It is a welcome part of being a senior citizen. Now get off my grass! Oh, I don't have any grass—I live in a desert. Get off my tumbleweed!

Snarky is an ill-appreciated art form.

TV could mean anything.....tunnel vision, terminal velocity, technical view, travel voucher, tricuspid valve, threshold voltage, time variance, Tualatin Valley (in Oregon)...

Yes, I visited the acronym site. I can't believe how many definitions there were for TV.

Thank you. So far all I have is a red light indicating power. It goes off when I unplug it. I will check breakers, radio connection, etc.

I actually like being a bit snarky. I also enjoy saying the word. Snarky. 😝

If you have a red light on the TV and you cannot get to the TV menu, then your issue is with the TV. I had one go out just like that; only the red light, couldn't get anything to work. I think you need to head to Best Buy for a replacement unless you want to spend $$$ for TV repair. If it's large you might want to consider a repair shop, otherwise, it's cheaper to replace it.

The small frame around our TV unsnaps on the road and the Samsung will not turn on until I snap the boarder or small surrounding trim back on. Our original TV was replaced under warranty and this does the same thing now.

If you've got power to the television (aka TV ) and the red light is on, then there is no point to check the breakers. Did you solve the mystery yet? Dead remote batteries?
