Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem .
What you just described is a very common main board problem for this serie of vizio .
The main board`s eeprom/memory chips gets confused and locks if you will.
Only way to repair that is to replace the main board and there are a couple of versions of it that cost around $100 to $120 to buy .
Did you wish to look into this yourself or simply would like to have an idea of what is involved and the costs of repair ?
