Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

How do you get your channels (cable/satellite, antenna, etc)?
Can you still bring up the vizio on screen setup menu?
Are any other sources (dvd, game, apps, etc) still working (picture and sound)?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
