If it is, or was, a very good TV, then check out some local electronics repair shop.
Else dump it and get a new one. They are NOT that expensive.

Actually it seems like they are giving away TV's these days. No excuse to not go out and buy another one. Try Walmart. They seem to consistently have very low prices on good name brand TV's. You can also check the returns area. Since Walmart has such a liberal return policy, some people will buy a TV, use it for day (or two) and bring it right back. These TV's are sold at a pretty good discount and they will still have a full warranty.

A lot of those TVs have no ports. It ain't all that useful if you can't plug your stuff into it. But it's a good suggestion anyway.

Ports? What ports would you be talking about. I am not talking about off-brand TV's. I'm talking LG, Samsung, Vizio etc. Decent brand TV's. Same ones you would find anywhere else. Sure they sell the off-brands even cheaper but that is not necessarily what I am talking about.

Here's just one example.

LG 4K 55" for $523.

Check the specs. I don't see this as having any shortage of ports.

That one has three HDMI ports and a composite/component combination port, which is better than many I've seen. You're right. It's not bad at all.

1 x Component/Composite Video
1 x Ethernet
3 x HDMI
1 x Optical Digital Audio
1 x RCA Audio L+R
1 x RF (Coaxial)
1 x USB 2.0

Let's compare that to my current old TV (Vizio VX37L):

1 x RF (F Connector for internal tuner) Input
2 x HDMI with HDCP Input
1 x Analog Stereo Audio for HDMI Inputs
2 x Component YPbPr plus Stereo Audio Input
2 x Composite Video Input
1 x S-Video plus Stereo Audio Input
1 x Computer RGB plus Stereo Audio Input
1 x Analog Audio (RCA) Output
1 x 5.1 SPDIF Digital Optical Audio Output

In general, a lot of newer TVs have very few ports other than HDMI because HDMI is the de facto standard. That doesn't help those of us who still have devices using something other than HDMI. For example, I need a 15-pin VGA port because I swap various PCs into my main TV from time to time. I can do that with my current TV.
