Do you get HD channels from your provider's box?

If so, the box is likely connected via HDMI. So you need to look at the back of the tv where that HDMI connection is and see which HDMI port number, like HDMI 2 (example). Then use the "INPUT" button on the Vizio remote to change the tv to HDMI 2.

If you still get no signal- Leave the tv on and set to HDMI 2. Locate the POWER cord for the provider's box and unplug it from the wall outlet. Wait 30 seconds and plug it back in. Watch the tv screen as the box boots back up.

I am here to help you. If you need more help reply back. Please be sure to click the 5 STARS or SMILEYS rating now. Doing so does NOT close the question or prevent us from continuing our conversation here. My livelihood truly does depend on your positive rating. Clicking the "bad/poor" rating does NOT do anything to fix your issue, nor does it issue you a refund.

Thank you,
