Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today.

Sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with this but I’ll do my best to help you out.

Can you give me the complete model number of the tv?
Can you see the samsung menu screens at all?
If you hold a flashlight to the screen, can you make out any images that way?
