Customer Question
There is no option...

There is no option to select HDMI input on our JVC TV. Model # LT-42e478

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your JVC is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It came with the house we just bought, but I doubt it's more than 5 years old?

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

The tv menu works. It has input options for video 1-5, nothing else

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

It's never worked for us
