Customer Question

When I turned on the tv, the vizio light just blinks. It will stay white for a few seconds and then alternate between white and yellow, but the tv won't come on.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Vizio is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: It's about 5 yrs old. I'm not sure of the model. It's 23" and is mounted on the wall.
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: No menu. It does not come on at all.
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: It just started. I went to turn it on, and it just keeps blinking. There was no power disruption.
JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Is it possible for you to get the model number off the back of the tv?
If not we can continue without it if you are confident in the age and size.
