Hello, Sorry you're having problems.

I am not available by phone, so please keep in mind I will be engaging you on this page only.

Please check again and get me the full model number off of the back of the TV.

Also what is connected to the set (cable/SAT box, DVD, etc.) and do you have the same issue with all sources?

Hello, I'm Shahid. Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help.
- Could you please get me the model number written on sticker pasted on side panel of TV?

- 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?
These info will help to troubleshoot the problem.
Thank you.
