I have a samsung tv and i think the plastic clip assembly on

Customer Question

i have a samsung tv and i think the plastic clip assembly on the optic cable input is broken. I cannot re-insert the optic cable and am getting no picture. Not sure what to do and hesitate getting started with a major and possibly unnecessary repair. I think the optic cable is ok but I am not totally sure.

Offhand - Optical Cable port has nothing to do with picture on TV.

Thanks for TV model number. Does TV screen glow/ show backlight when turn On?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
let me see. i think a little glow... i'll turn it on now.
I can tell you that when this cord was plugged in we had picture, and when the cord came out the picture went away, but sound stayed. Then we fiddled with the cord again and the picture returned. then went out again. so i'm pretty sure the picture is related to this cord. and the cord is not staying in the port. maybe I'm not saying it properly. but to answer your question, hold on I will look...
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

OK, you can verify the screen by pressing menu button on TV remote, menu graphics should appear on TV screen.

sorry. now i've turned the tv back on and i have a picture even though this cord is out. I don't even know what to say about this cord and input now. I don't even know where the other end of this cord is connected to. Should we just forget about this?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't want to waste your time or mine. Sorry. never mind.
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

Nice, do you get sound as well with the picture?

If so then all is fine, enjoy your TV shows.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
