Customer Question
Many years ago when...

Many years ago when I bought my Philips LCD 40", the tv came with a small two prong "plug" for wireless operation. I was using cable at the time, and didn't need it. Now I wish to use wireless and can't find that little two prong plug. Can you help?

Technician's Assistant: What Philips model do you have? How old is it?

Model 40PFL7705DVF

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Yes, same problems on all sources/inputs

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your 40PFL7705DVF? What happened right before this?

I never used the little prong plug, wasn't needed, cable and cable remote did all I needed. I'm switching to a streaming system now, and the tv doesn't have a built in wifi

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

I think that is it Pearl,, Thank you

I've looked once again. The model number of my Philips is correct. The s/n is DS1A1128127325. I am able to go into Amazon and find parts and remotes, wireless components with that number.
