Greetings Richard, is there a way I can send a photo?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Basically it says, Can't connect, Try another or try again, two choices
Expert:  Richard replied 6 months ago.

yes, you can attach it as a file to this question

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Actually that's all it says, so don't need to send it... just a box, "Can't connect" "Try again" "Try another"
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
The TV is NOT on the network, so I don't think you can Remote Assist it
Expert:  Richard replied 6 months ago.

little confused by your response. I never said remote assist or anything like that, I need the error message, and your sending a photo right?

Or just tell me the error here please.
