Did you try turning your cable box on?

Pull the plug on the cable-box. Wait at least one minute and plug it back in and give it about 5 minutes to reset and reload. Use the television remote to turn on the television and put channel on channel 3. If the remote's battery is dead replace it. You can also use the controls on the television itself to turn on and change channel back to channel 3.
