tv not recognizing cable box

I accidentally pushed the channel button on the side of the tv.  I thought I was pushing the power button.  The tv message says no signal or weak signal.  It was working until I pushed the wrong button.  What channel should it be set on?

Depending on the model and year of tv, search for "input" on your remote and select the correct input for your box (HDMI 1, HDMI 2, Component 1, Component 2 etc).

try channel 4 or 3 on the tv...in most cases this works
