    Hmmm 1979 I would call a tv repairman, think geek squad is the modern day equivalent.

    As far as hardware are TV’s these days pretty much “working perfect”/“Throw in trash” with nothing in between???

    We bribed your home-care nurse to sabotage your electronics, so we’d get less of “these” threads. :fred:

    Unplug from wall for a few seconds, and then when you start it back up check for firmware/system update. If that doesn't help, check the non-working apps for updates.

    Unplug for a few minutes. If that doesn't work, try a firmware update via wifi or USB stick.

    Well, that seems like far too much trouble. I think I would just go get a beer instead.
