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- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

OK, working on it and get back to you in few minutes.

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

Sorry for delayed reply, there is no easy or quick fix to reset password ***** this TV, it needs to go into factory menu of TV to restore default settings and this should be done by qualified TV tech to avoid any further trouble as any wrong setting could end up on dead TV.

Please reply back if you still want to try it at your own risk and I can provide you service manual copy to proceed.
