Customer Question
How do I turn...

How do I turn off the words being spoken that are showing on the screen?

Technician's Assistant: What's the model number of your TV? How old is it?

I'm looking. I bought it in May of this year.

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

Yes and no on the other tvs.

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

I had to change the power cord and the cable box had to be unplugged a 2nd time in the last hour. When the cable box was turned back on, the words stared showing

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

No, I just want the dialog to stop showing on the picture.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
