Customer Question
Have Vizio Tv fairly new...
Have Vizio Tv fairly new 6 mos. bottom of screen is messaging "loading" and "searching for available updates" Then at bottom of screen boxes popping up with Yahoo, Utube, Netflix, etc. Also, am unable to use Netflix or any of the other things. Have already called tech at Xfinity and he checked everything and he said it is something going on with the TV. He said that you would be able to walk me through steps to correct this. Can you correct for me?

Nothing you suggested worked. Menu would not stay long enough to click on anything. But finally kept trying and I could not connect to internet. I finally called a tech at Vizio and he helped to connect to internet but now I have lost Netflix.

Have you tried to go to your Netflix account through computer and add your TV as a device to get it register with Netflix for video streaming?
It happens if restore TV to default settings.
