Hello, my name is***** be happy to assist you.
Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.
- Does TV turn On and shows some kind of 'Locked' message on screen?
- Can you elaborate 'blocked' TV with more details?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Please just let met know what to do, the tv comes on for about thirty seconds and then goes off, and thats about it.
Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
I can't see that TV from here and have to rely on info posted in this question to understand the issue.
- Does TV show Vizio logo screen or any graphics or picture before it switches Off?
- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?
These info will help to troubleshoot and diagnose the problem.

Thanks Genny for the info.

- Does menu screen appear if push Menu button on Vizio TV or its remote?

If so, please unplug TV and cable box power cord from wall outlet for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in, turn them On, give cable box little time to reboot fully and this should bring picture on TV.

Please reply back with the result.
