The same issue exists. This is a TV that's on my patio n not hooked up to cable or satellite. That shouldn't make a difference tho.

Go into the settings menu and look for factory or shipping reset and try that

No settings in the menu option. This isn't a smart TV BTW. Altho user guide indicates HDM1 is a source option it is grey on the source list. In looking at other menu setting options HDM1 is grey as well so I think it may not be avail.

Just give me 5 mins with this please

Ask Your Own TV Question

OK I just had a thought, please do this with the set OFF in standby mode press INFO >>>MENU>>>MUTE>>>Power ON (within say 6 seconds) the set should come ON with multiple characters please look for the option which I think is option 13 RESET and activate that

Let me know

That didn't work either. Just a scrambled screen and message weak or no signal
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I figured it out!!!!!!! I connected the USB adapter to the tiki stick n I got the HDM1 source that way. Woohoo. Thx for your assistance.
