TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 3 months ago

OK, and do you get black bars on screen regardless of what video source is being watched on TV?

Also, are the black bars are vertical or horizontal on screen?

I guess piano strings means black bars on screen, correct?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No. It's a flat, gold "tray" with strings attached... Very similar to a piano
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Right now, however, after I turned the whole system off ( I thought), there is a screen that says NO SIGNAL for Home Theatre System. HDM12
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
it just now went off! I did nothing
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 3 months ago

Not sure about how you hooked up the entire system.

Reboot every thing connected to TV, unplug power cords/ cut the power of all things for 5 minutes, reconnect power and turn them On to see if it helps to work them again?

Thanks. Will do.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 3 months ago

OK, please provide picture of 'gold tray with strings' that appears on screen that will help to troubleshoot the problem.
