Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

Could you please look on the back of the tv for me, there will be a model number printed on a sticker there.

Does the sound work continuously or does that cut out as well?
