What is on the tv screen right now?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Blank. I can get HDM1 if I click TV/...at the bottom of screen. But then the "HD" disappears. Then I try Menu but still black screen.
Then I try the "Menu" button at bottom of screen, click on "Channel 4", then "OK", but nothing appears, eg, "Guide".
Hope this is clear. The usual way I access my tv programs has disappeared.
Thank you, Helene

That is, the "menu" button on my remote.
TV Technician: Mike G., Technician replied 5 months ago

What remote are you using? Is it the original Panasonic remote that came with the tv? or one that your cable/sat company provides?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
The remote I'm using is Verizon FiOS TV.
TV Technician: Mike G., Technician replied 5 months ago

Please try this:

-leave the tv On.
-unplug the Verizon FiOS tv BOX POWER cord from the wall outlet.
-wait 20 seconds then plug in that power cord and manually power on the box.

REPLY back here and tell me what happens.

I did. Nothing happened, i.e. black screen.
I might add that the "Scientific Atlantic" box that controls TV, DVD, etc. goes off after a few minutes.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Sorry. I've already fixed it. Had to do with the setup -- channels. I think.
Thank you.
