Coax A might have been squashed somewhere along its length in a manner that killed the TV signals although a tone tester signal may get through okay.
The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.
Where is the Comcast signal tied into your house - at CoBasement?
Is the basement finished so you can't follow the coax? This old house has a coax setup so why do you think it was installed? Do you think at one time the TV antenna was connected to it?

just spent 2 hrs trying to figure out what's going on. to add to the mess, i've now found an extra reel of coax in the ceiling behind CoB that is disconnected. No splitter has been found but seems like breaking some dry walls can not be avoided.
i like the squashed somewhere idea but this old wiring job is just odd.. who ever did this must hate me. i give up
edit: adding insult to injury.. the gf now thinks she can figure this out and have been at all the connectors like a hamster on crack. i hope she doesn't find the splitter..
