TROUBLESHOOTING

Before calling your service provider, review this troubleshooting guide. This information is to help you quickly solve a problem. If your problem still exists, contact your service provider. Problem
The cable terminal will not power on

Possible Solution

The cable terminal may have received a software update and may not power on while the new software is being installed. Try again in a few minutes. Verify that the AC power cord is connected to the cable terminal and an AC outlet. Unplug the cable terminal from the AC outlet, plug it back in, and then press the POWER button. If the cable terminal is connected to a switched outlet on another unit, verify that that unit is powered on. Press the POWER button on the cable terminal front panel instead of the remote control. The batteries in the remote control may be depleted.
The remote control does not work
Verify that the remote control is in Cable mode. Verify that there are no obstructions between the remote control and the cable terminal. Aim the remote control directly at the cable terminal front panel, not the TV or VCR. The angle between the remote control and the cable terminal may be too large. Stand in front of the cable terminal and not too far to either side. Press and release operation keys one at a time, firmly and deliberately. Try changing channels using the buttons on the cable terminal front panel. Check the batteries in the remote control. Install new batteries if needed.

Problem

There is no audio when viewing cable channels
Verify that the MUTE button on the cable terminal or the remote control was not pressed. Press MUTE on the remote control to restore sound. If the cable terminal audio output is connected to the TV, verify that the MUTE button on the TV was not pressed. If the cable terminal audio output is connected to a home theater receiver, verify that the receiver is set to the appropriate input source and the mute button on the receiver was not pressed. Verify that you used the correct audio cables for the ports. Verify that the audio cables are firmly connected between the cable terminal and the audio playback device (TV, receiver, DVD player, etc.).
There is no audio from the center and/or surround speakers of a home theater receiver connected to the cable terminal
Not all Dolby Digital programs feature full 5.1 surround sound. In some cases, the programs may only contain left and right stereo audio. Verify that the coaxial or optical SPDIF cable is firmly connected to the cable terminal and the home theater receiver. Verify that the home theater receiver is set to a surround sound audio mode (Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic, or Dolby Pro Logic II). Verify that the receiver is properly configured to work with all connected speakers.
There is no video on the TV screen
Verify that the TV is powered on and set to the appropriate input source for the cable terminal. Verify that the cable terminal is powered on and tuned to an authorized cable channel. Verify that all video cables between the cable terminal and the TV are firmly connected. Verify that the coaxial cable feed is firmly connected to the cable terminal and the wall jack. If the cable terminal is connected to a home theater unit, verify that the home theater unit is powered on and set to the appropriate input source.
Press the key to cycle through the available output formats until a picture displays on the TV.
No closed captions display
Verify on the User Settings menu that closed captions are enabled on the cable terminal. Verify that closed captions are enabled on the TV.
There are black bars above and below the picture
Some SD programs are broadcast in the letterbox format with black bars above and below the picture. Some widescreens TVs offer a zoom feature that may be able to remove the black bars. Note: If tuned to HD and the TV Type = 4:3 LETTERBOX, black bars will appear above and below the picture. Try setting the TV Type to 4:3 PAN/SCAN to get a full-screen picture with no black bars.

There are black bars on all four sides of the picture
A broadcaster may include black bars on either side of a widescreen broadcast. This is called a hybrid aspect ratio and results in a black border surrounding the video on a 4:3 TV. Because this is part of the broadcast, the cable terminal cannot correct the video. Borders can be eliminated by selecting the 4:3 PAN/SCAN option on the TV Type setting. The DCT3080 includes an integrated hard drive and a fan for cooling. During normal operation, the DCT3080 emits a low humming noise, similar to a personal computer. The noise varies in volume occasionally when the speed of the internal fan adjusts to changes in the temperature around the DCT3080. Please note the hard drive will stay on even when the DCT3080 is turned off.
