michelleclive :

Hi this is Michelle and i will be assisting you today.

michelleclive :

please turn off tv and unplug power cord

michelleclive :

now keep the on button on tv pressed for 10 secs

michelleclive :

wait for 2 minutes

michelleclive :

plug in power cord back in and check

michelleclive :

let me know if it repeats the same behavior or works fine

Customer:

There does'nt appear to be a manual on/off switch on the tv

michelleclive :

in that case after you unplug the power cord wait for 2-3 mins and then turn it back on and check

Customer:

Ok will do.

michelleclive :

ok

Customer:

I have done that, and it is still the same

michelleclive :

is it still stuck on one channel

Customer:

yes ad stiil turns off and then back on after a few seconds

michelleclive :

ok

michelleclive :

give me a moment here

Customer:

ok

michelleclive :

please press menu button on remote and go to settings

michelleclive :

check for the options and find one that says reset or load default

michelleclive :

select that

michelleclive :

let me know if you are able to do that

Customer:

it does'nt resond to the remote

michelleclive :

is this tv connected through a surge protector

Customer:

I don't know, is that an extra componant?

michelleclive :

know its kind of a ups or vlotage stabiliser

michelleclive :

its very easy to check that

michelleclive :

does your tv connect directly to the wall outlet or is there a box in between

Customer:

its connected straight to mains via a 13 amp plug

michelleclive :

ok

michelleclive :

now as per what you have told and what we have tried it seems to be a memory IC failure

michelleclive :

since this a new unit and would be within warranty cover, i would suggest to get a service arranged for the unit which would be covered under warranty

michelleclive :

if i suggest any further steps that would include checking on the back panel connections and if anything goes wrong while you check that or a seal gets damaged or broken, it will void the warranty cover

michelleclive :

so it would be best to get this unit serviced

michelleclive :

you can contact the store from where you got it

michelleclive :

let me know if you have any questions

Customer:

Thank you , will do what you suggest

Customer:

I will have to vist the store, i will contact you if any problems.
