Should I just reset
Tech Support Specialist: Karthik, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 5 months ago

Could you please check if the other devices like smart phone or computer were able to connect to the wifi? Check whether the internet were working fine on those device?

I am wondering if I need to reset to factory settings
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Are you still there
Tech Support Specialist: Karthik, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 5 months ago

Sure, We can try resetting the TV, but resetting the TV deletes all data and changes all settings adjustments back to the defaults. It basically makes the TV just like it was the first time it was taken out of the box and powered on.

1. Press the Menu button on your Vizio remote.

2. Use the remote arrow buttons to select SYSTEM and press OK on the remote.

3. Select RESET & ADMIN and press OK.

4. Select RESET TV TO FACTORY DEFAULTS and press OK.

5.The TV will display the message “Select reset to restore all TV settings to factory defaults.” Use the arrow buttons to select the RESET button and press OK.

After you confirm you want to reset the TV it will power off then automatically power on again. The OOBE setup menu will appear which will walk you through steps to setup your TV again so you can continue to watch TV channels and use internet app.

Resetting the TV is a simple process and can often solve problems with TVs. If the TV is still having odd problems after resetting there may be some other issue besides the TV settings that is effecting the TV’s performance. Check out the other articles on this site if yo continue to have problems. Please let me know if that help.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
