Re: Screen black out

If you have had another HDMI cable and box then the next logical step is that it's the TV

Re: Screen black out

Some would say that doesn't really count for much.

Have you tried another TV with your existing VM box and cabling? A real-world test is probably best if you're trying to eliminate all variables.

Re: Screen black out

That actually made me laugh l, they actually laughed at me saying nothing up with it. I pay warranty on the tv so I no issues with sending it In when I need to.

Re: Screen black out

Getting the TV picked up turns out it is a fault with the backlight and they laughed at me last time. Thanks for you help
