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 tell me what you have connected to the tv, and where?
For example do you have a cable box plugged into the hdmi1 port on the back of the tv?

Hello Maggie,

It is imperative that you reply back to me here, on your original question only, please.

Posting new/duplicate questions costs you more and hinders my ability to reply.

Please reply back here on this page when ready.

How many times do Ihave to ask you to call me?
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 6 months ago

I'm in the US.

There are no call requests of any kind showing on my end.

The fees you've paid here cover this chat support format only.

I will send a phone support offer that you may accept if you wish.

Again, please stop opening new questions.

You must reply to me here, on this original one only, which is at https://www.justanswer.com/tv-repair/awnii-maggie-cathey-mt-name-maggie-cathey-when-turning-tv.html

Every time you open a new one, it is costing you more, and delaying our ability to help you.

If you want help here, I need you to provide the specific details I've requested: where is the box plugged into the tv (hdmi1, hdmi2, etc)

If you want me to call, you need to accept the call offer showing on your screen.

TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 6 months ago

Hello, it appears your question is still open.

Do you need more help with this?

Please note: You have already paid your fees to the site; I'd like to help you and provide value for that fee, but I do need to communicate with you here to do so, if more help is needed.
