Customer Question

my vizio serial number X40G032099736AZA ~ is it high definition? I have not owners manual ~ I want to subscribe to HD through my cable company but NOT if my TV is not HD
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Vizio is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: yes the menu works ~ haven't worried about the other sets being HD
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

Hello, We can't look up the set from the serial number - I would need the model number, which is on a sticker on the back of the TV. Can you get that please?

Expert:  Aric replied 9 months ago.

A Vizio model number would be something similar to: B550-B1

Are you still with me here?

Another way you can find out if the set is HD or not, is simply look at the back of the TV for any jacks labeled "HDMI". Those are HD jacks by their very nature.
