Customer Question
Can you tell me...

Can you tell me how to connect my computer to my vizio smart tv wirelessly

Technician's Assistant: What Vizio model do you have? How old is it?

Model #E420i-A1 It's around 4 yrs. old.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Yes the TV menu works but I've just never used the "Smart" capabilities.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your #E420I-A1? What happened right before this?

Nothing happened. I've just never tried to do this. My son is playing a pool match tonight that is being televised to facebook and was hoping we could watch on the TV rather than the computer.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

No that's it.

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.
