No picture but sound

Yesterday our TV picture would go black but keep the sound.  If we shut down for 5/10 minutes the picture would come back, last about an hour or so and then black again...round and round we went.  Any ideas before I get on the phone with Comcast; gosh I dislike calling and hanging on the phone with them.  Thanks!

Have you hooked up the cable box to a different TV to ensure its the cable box failing and not the TV?

No, i have not done that - tried doing that one other time and ended up not reconnecting correctly and having problems.

 

Today, we haven't had a problem.  If it happens again, I will request a refresh and if necessary request a service call for a new box unless there is some other solution?

 

Thanks for responding!
