If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click a POSITIVE RATING before you go- as it's how I am credited for my work. You can follow up at any time, at no additional cost. 1) Can you get the model number off of the back of the TV? 2) Can you tell me how the cable box is connected to the set (is it using an HDMI cable for instance)? 3) The TV has multiple "Source" options, which have you tried so far?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
