I have sent every number on the back of the TV. I have checked many times. Maybe we should cancel this. Thanks for your trouble.
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 year ago.

As I said that IS it but you have the numbers or letters wrong!I cant do anything if you do not supply this info

AVP 504. .sorry the number is ***** If this doesn't work, tittle only number that was wrong.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Did this latest number I sent you help. If not, there are definitely not more numbers on the TV apart from the ones so that I have already supplied. I have re-checked all the numbers that I have sent, so I can't do any more. Not your fault of course. Ron.

Hello here is the manual for your TV

If you press the menu button on the TV does the black line cover the menu or is the menu behind the line please?

How old is the TV please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The menu appears in the middle of the screen so it isn't affected by the black bar along the bottom of the screen. Sorry, can't really say how old it is
It was given to me.
Expert:  hongkongpom replied 1 year ago.

Thank you, ***** ***** that you see this black line no matter what you're watching on the TV?
