Customer Question
Well it suddenly would...

Well it suddenly would not turn on with the usual programs....I got a message :directtv.com/726.....what the heck is that?

Technician's Assistant: Is your TV connected to a surge protector or power strip?

Not sure....

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried to power reset your TV (unplugging the power for 1-2 minutes, then plugging it back in)?

Ah, yes to the power surge....let me try that.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

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.
