OK, it seems a tech presence physically is needed in front of TV to sort out the issue and this is not going to fix over internet support, do you want me to provide you local TV repair shop info to proceed?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No I can do that but I'm dissatisfied with my service
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.
