Hello, In order to help solve this problem, I need to ask you for more info.

1) Was the set working fine previously to watch TV programming?

2) Are you using a Cable/SAT box with the set?

Please let me know if you need help once you're able to read my reply.

Yes to both? Okay, then your TV switched off the correct Input. Use the original Vizio remote's INPUT button and press it. It selects each of the input ports on the back of the TV. Your cable box is plugged into one of them.

I'm not able to see which one, so if you're unsure- select each of them one at a time (HDMI 1 HDMI 2, etc.).

Let me know what you see on each one.

I'm really not sure what you're referring to here. Anyhow, I'm not privy in any way to billing, accounts, etc.- I'm an independent tech, not a site employee. You would need to direct those questions to customer service via the home page. I'm simply an AV technician. You can direct billing questions here: http://*****@******.***

I will opt out and am no longer involved in the dialog here. Have a good night.
