Customer Question
Can't watch the TV...

Can't watch the TV. It does nothing but tile the picture and the sound goes in and out. This is a constant thing that happens all day and all night.

Technician's Assistant: Are all the cables at the back of your TV connected tightly to the right sockets?

Yes. We have tried all of them. why isn't there a phone number that we can call?

Technician's Assistant: What type of input cables are you using: HDMI, RCA (red, yellow, and white cables), S-Video, or something else?

It is the cable cord. And this hasn't always happened. It started about 2 weeks ago! Again why isn't there a phone number we can call?

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

We had a broken cable outside less then a year ago and this same thing happened. I truck going down the road hit the wires overhead and tugged them lose and that was the problem.
