Customer Question
I was half asleep...

I was half asleep and tried to see the on off timer and failed. I got all the sets mixed up and now my tv does not know what to input or out put. Of I could jusy do factory reset to what all the setr8ngs were before I messed with it, that would be helpful.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model number of your TV? How old is it?

Brand Zenith

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

Model z42px2d

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your Z42PX2D? What happened right before this?

The tv itself works fine, I messed up the setting in the menu.

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.
