Customer Question

Hey, Aric! My Vizio M420KD TV in my bedroom worked fine about a month ago, I just don't use it a lot. Tried to turn it on this AM and got nothing, Unplugged it for a bit, plugged it back in and it turned on fine for about two minutes, then it shut off. Tried unplugging again, now the Vizio logo at the bottom just flashes rhythmically and repeatedly, no "pattern." Tried the unplug and hold down power button for 20 seconds and wait a minute and replug and power on, to no avail. Any other options for me to try?

please. No storm that I'm aware of. I'm not sure about warranty, I'm guessing it's about 4-5 years old?
