Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble, Andre.

Does this line affect all inputs/sources?
If you bring up the panasonic menu, is it affected also?

Does the line ever move, change shape/color, etc

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.
