We have direct tv and...
We have direct tv and this morning it went off the air and I had to reboot our boxes---the tv(sony) in the bedroom is fine, but now our 50 inch vizio in living room will not turn on. The box appears to be working, but I can't get tv to turn on, light flashes then stays yellow. HELP. Gretchen Murdock,[email protected] Phone XXX-XXX-XXXX

Mike, It is a P50HDM, 100-240V-5.2A, 50/60HZ. Manufactured October 2005.

 

Since my first report to you guys, I tried completely unplugging it and replugging (booting??) and the green/on light came on. Still could not get it to recognize the "input" command or get a picture. Turned it off with remote and tried to turn it back on---Will not turn back on with the remote---I have not tried the unplug/reboot method again-----

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Mike, please cancel your quest for our problem----I have a repairman coming tomorrow. Says vizio's have power board issues and can fix it----Please charge 9.00 for your efforts. Gretchen Murdock e63d2kp
