Customer Question

Our Samsung TV has a blank blue screen with no voice. It happened last night, fixed it after resetting cable box. Same thing is happening now, but nothing seems to work.
JA: What is the exact make and model of your tv? And how long has this been an issue?
Customer: Bear with me while my husband looks it up.....last night was the first time for this.
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: no, nothing works. When we turn it on a flashing microphone comes on briefly then nothing. It's only the big TV
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

I'm reviewing your details and will reply shortly.

To rule out the possibility of a faulty cable box, do you have another source you can switch to- like a DVD player to see if the issue persists with that? Also are you able to access the source selections and MENU using the original Samsung remote please?

Please send a reply to proceed.

Bear with us, we're trying to get this info now. OK we have original remote and yes we can access menu. What now?
Expert:  Aric replied 1 month ago.

I had asked if you had another source you can try like a DVD player so we can determine if the TV or your cable box is the issue please?
