That being said , a few questions coming up and by the way , pearl that greeted you is a computer so never mind the odd questions and suggestions.;
Please let me know when you are ready to proceed .
Also ,Could you please give me the tv`s model number written on the back cover ?

Got your other closed , we are not allowed to reply to duplicates

Is this tv connected to a cable box/converter,satellite receiver,digital converter etc ?
Or directly to antenna/cable from the wall outlet ,no box with its own remote ?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
If the model number is on the back, I cannot move the TV. Connected to a cable box.

Is this a scam?
Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

O.k then the cable box is the one that controls the sound here so if you have sound on some channels this means the tv is fine and as far as I know cable boxes do not have the SAP (second audio program) option

Try to reboot that cable box by pulling out its power cord 30 secs or so

What would we be talking about here SCAM ???

I`m a real life tech. and certainly not a scammer

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It now works except when I try to change the channels, they are now locked. i only saidi scam because the price keeps going up.

Not privy to any of the money matters here

not an employee here but an independent tech. that gets paid by this website once you rate me for my help .

Please use this link or phone number for these questions; 1.***-***-****

It certainly looks like your cable box is acting up , you could try another reboot , perhaps a bit longer like 2 minutes but I would get ready to call the cable company to have that box replaced
