Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

Can you give me the full model number of the tv, please?

I don't know-we've had it for 10 years and I can't see the back of the tv
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It's an HDTV
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 2 years ago

I really need the full model number of the tv to be able to provide an accurate answer.

If it isn't possible to get that off the back, I can give you some general information.

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.
