Customer Question
I have a 55...

I have a 55 inch 4k uhx smart tv. We just moved across country and I'm trying to hook it up to a video player as we won't have Internet til tomorrow. I can't seem to hook it up, can you help me?

Technician's Assistant: Is there a particular streaming service you're trying to connect to (e.g. Netflix or YouTube)?

We won't have that til tomorrow. Right now we would just like to be able to watch a dvd.

Technician's Assistant: How is your internet connection? Have you tried unplugging your modem and router, then plugging them back in?

I don't have Internet til tomorrow. I just want to watch a dvd through a video player. How do I set that up.

Technician's Assistant: The TV Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

Nope, that's it. Thanks

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.
