I have to know how to change the input on my TV The screen…

Customer Question
I have to know...

I have to know how to change the input on my TV The screen is all snowy and I just spent a half hour with AT&Tsupport and they said I need to change the input but thwe LG remote does not have a input button

Technician's Assistant: Are there any HDMI cables or A/V jacks (red, yellow, and white cables) plugged into your LG TV?

I can't get at that. I would need one of my kids to move the TV to check that. Can you just tell me where the input button is on the remote

Technician's Assistant: Was there a power outage recently?

No I think I hit the wrong button and it got all snowy a couple days ago
