Hello, I will do my best to provide you with excellent service. I have been helping people like you on this site since 2009, and in return I get paid for my efforts which supports my livelihood. All the time I am helping you is on the honor system until you submit a positive 3-5 star rating when I provide your answer.

I see you were chatting with the site's automated response system. I would like to hear from you asap so that I know you are ready to proceed.

Are you able to get the actual model number from the sticker on the back of the tv?
