Customer Question
I just bought a...

I just bought a used TV and it has no Jack to hook the cable into. We're also not getting any audio

Technician's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The TV Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

My son has it hooked up to the Xbox but there is no audio. Also can't find a place to hook the TV cable into

Technician's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the TV Technician should know?

Not sure

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.
