Powered off for 10 minutes. Some channel info o.k. but majority of info shown is only from 18:00 to 1900 so not ideal. More help needed please.

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
What do you see outside of the 18:00 to 19:00?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Just blank lines

ok, can you try to replace the input cable and tell me if you have the same issue
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Still the same issue

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Do you have another TV there?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Sorry, no, just the one

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
its ok, Nearly always its the internal memory that has faulted, Cable or signal. We have ruled out the cable and also residue power and in my experience its the internal memory in the TV. But to confirm this you test on another TV. As you do not have one, wait a day and if you still have the problem then it is the TV's memory (I am 99% sure it is) In this case, I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to replace the TV. Repairing this issue is not feasible for this TV. 10 years is very good use, but the boards are impossible to get and would come with no warranty. I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
