Customer Question
Turned on my tv...

Turned on my tv last night and no picture just a small icon ping-ponging around the screen with the comment "no tv signal"

Technician's Assistant: Are there any HDMI cables or A/V jacks (red, yellow, and white cables) plugged into your TV?

Yes, as best I can tell everything is the same as it's been for the last 3 yrs.

Technician's Assistant: Was there a power outage recently?

Didn't notice it only any of the house clocks

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

Yes, I'm certain the cable is working and it isn't the problem

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.
