Customer Question
While watching the NEWS...

While watching the NEWS, our TV screen went completely blank. Other TV in the house is working, so I'm assuming it is not the cable. Unplugged the TV and replugged with no success. The red POWER indicator light on front of TV flashes. What could be the problem?

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

Yes. There is the HDMI 1 connection, a DVD connection and a Fire stick connected to the TV.

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

No

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.
