Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today.

Sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with this but I’ll do my best to help you out, Jim.

Does this happen on all sources/inputs?
Does sound continue?
Can you see the LG menu screens?
If you hold a flashlight to the screen, can you make out an image that way, while it is otherwise black?
