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.

Can you please tell me the model number from the back of the tv?

Do you mean that you can't find the input option to choose in the menu, or that you can't find the physical port to actually plug into?
