Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble, Jimbo, and congrats on the wedding.

How old is the tv?
If it is less than a year old, you're covered under warranty and don't want to do anything yourself here (will only cost you more time and money and void what warranty you do have).

If beyond the warranty, there are certainly options to fix it.

Is the right side completely black as if powered off? Or is it lit up just with no pic?
