Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem right here and if you get automated phone offer from the web site ,never mind that .

If we can`t do it here then i will give you some contact info for a repairman .

Would that be suitable ?

Can you give me the tv`s model number in the mean time ?

If you just want tech. to come to your place then just give me your zip code ?

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.
