CM1200 Downstream light blinking and Cox wont help

For a couple of weeks now we will get sudden drops during the day needing to restart the modem and router to gain service. Since then the downstream arrow has been blinking. I contacted Cox and of course, they blame it on the equipment that isn't theirs.  I'm seeing quite a few errors and included them below.

Re: CM1200 Downstream light blinking and Cox wont help

What Firmware version is currently loaded?
Please post a copy and paste of the modems connection status page.
https://kb.netgear.com/30007/How-do-I-obtain-the-cable-connection-information-from-a-NETGEAR-cable-m...

Be sure your using a good quality LAN cable between the modem and router. CAT6 is recommended. 
What is the brand and model of the host wifi router connected to the modem?

 

You have Criticals and Warnings the the ISP needs to review and help resolve from there side. 

 

Have the ISP check the signal and line quality UP to the modem. Be sure the ISP provisions the modem correctly.
Be sure there are no coax cable line splitters in the between the modem and ISP service box. 
Be sure your using good quality RG6 coax cable up to the modem. 
Start with removing any amplifiers, signal attenuators, or splitters from the coax.
From there check the line for kinks, damage, moisture in the line.
Check the connectors for improperly made ends, foil touching the copper coax line, loose connections, bad/old/cheap connectors, or corroded connections. Replace them if you do.
Be sure to power OFF the modem for 1 minute then back ON.

Re: CM1200 Downstream light blinking and Cox wont help

Your log indicates line issues.

But its tough to tell without the cable connections page. Sometimes its to low of power and sometimes to high. 

Or sometimes its just straight up issues. 

If you can post that back here, it gives us a little direction to point you in. 

 

In the mean time, you can start with removing any amplifiers, signal attenuators, or splitters from the coax.
From there check the line for kinks, damage, moisture in the line.
Check the connectors for improperly made ends, foil touching the copper coax line, loose connections, bad/old/cheap connectors, or corroded connections. Replace them if you do.
If you can, simply connect the modem right where the coax comes into the home. This prevents wiring in the home from being the issue. And some ISP’s charge if the wiring issue is in the home. So this helps prevent this.

Re: CM1200 Downstream light blinking and Cox wont help

You have Correctables and Un-correctables that should be mostly zeros. 

Check all fittings and cable runs. Remove any splitters as suggested. Ensure coax jacks are snug and inplace well.
