Customer Question

Having problem with vizio staying on
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Vizio is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: E320vl
JA: Huh?
Customer: Approx 4 yrs old
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Everything
JA: The TV expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?
Customer: Yes.....did not have vizio remote....was using phone remote app....and obviously hit something that activated a parental lock that keeps the tv from staying on
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the TV Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, Sorry you're having problems.

A Parental Lock would pop up a screen with 4 boxes asking you for a code- is that what you're seeing?

Also how long is the TV staying on before shutting off?
