Customer Question
Had a repair man...

Had a repair man come out and did something on the remote control to get tv back. It said no media device and tech came and easily used the remote to get my cable tv back.

Technician's Assistant: What is the model of your TV?

Element

Technician's Assistant: What menu options can you access, if any?

Picture, audio, time, setup

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

I think I remember him touching a button twice in setup.

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.
