Can't get sound....TV goes off on it's own, about 3 years

Customer Question

Can't get sound....TV goes off on it's own
JA: What's the make and model of your tv, and can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: about 3 years old
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: I don't think so. I was watching Netflix earlier and when I switched back to HDMI 1 I couldn't get any sound. When I contacted Spectrum they said it wasn't the cable box
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: It's been an issue for about two weeks. The TV is working perfectly, then it just shuts off on it's own. Also it takes a long time to go on. The TV man said all Visios are that way!
JA: Is there anything else the TV Technician should be aware of?
Customer: About 2 weeks ago the TV tech gave me a new remote.

I'm sorry you're having trouble with it, I need more info to troubleshoot the problem.
1- Could you please get me the complete model number written on back cover or side panel of TV?
2- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I think it says 39Tesla...can' see it very well. But the brochure says E320VA/ E321VA/E370VA/ E420VA
Just installed a fire stick today BUT have been having this problem for a couple of weeks. Sometimes it works fine and then it doesn't!!
