Due to negligent work by a Comcast technician, my second television burnt out. This is because the technician did not investigate the cause for my first TV burn out. A broken or cut ground wire. It was only detected by another technician called out to fix the same box that kept losing its signal. He discovered the cut ground wire and explained that would have caused both problems.
He fixed the ground wire and told me I should put a claim in with Comcast. He even gave me his supervisor's name, ph # and email address. I've now tried emailing and calling that supervisor, but has yet to respond to any message.
FWIW - I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but I have no idea why a technician would ever tell you anything like that. A broken or missing ground wire isn't going to cause that kind of damage unless there is some type of electrical malfunction. You'll have a pretty tough time proving Comcast had anything to do with your burned out TV's. You might want to consider a claim with your homeowners policy if it covers that sort of thing. With that said, Comcast is generally pretty good about damage claims, although they won't resolve the issue very quickly.
