Our 3 yr old...

Our 3 yr old Samsung 55” TV is having trouble with the volume controls. It takes multiple taps to get a response from both original tv and cable remotes. What’s going on?

Technician's Assistant: Are all the cables at the back of your 55” connected tightly to the right sockets?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: What type of input cables are you using: HDMI, RCA (red, yellow, and white cables), S-Video, or something else?

HDMI

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.
