Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'll assist you. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it.
I need additional info to troubleshoot the issue.

1- Could you please get me the model number written on back of TV?

2- Is the set-top box being hooked into HDMI input of TV?

3- Was the same set-top box working fine with this TV?

Thanks.
