Customer Question
With the TV plugged...

With the TV plugged in and the on light showing why can I not pull up the menu?

Technician's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

With the TV plugged in and the on light showing why can I not pull up the menu? I have only been dealing with it for about an hour. FYI TV is not hooked up to cable or an antenna. I am trying to determine if it works at all. My friend gave it to me and said it does work.

Technician's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

YesWell maybe that I’m 85 years old or not at all Tech intelligent
