Hello, Offhand the manual does not elaborate on how to select the Input source. Have you tried pressing "Source" once more when you have the Input you want to select Highlighted?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Yes I have every time it returns to AV input

Okay, that was all I had to offer. I'll open the question back up for other experts to assist.

Hello and Welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'll assist you today. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it. I need additional info to troubleshoot the issue.- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?Thanks.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
The only device that is being used is a laptop wich I'm trying to get connected
Expert:  Shahid replied 5 months ago.
OK, I would suggest to connect a different video source such as DVD/Bluray player in HDMI input of TV with the same HDMI cable being used for laptop connection, this way we will confirm if the TV works fine with DVD player?
