Can you please tell me the actual model number of the tv, please? None of the info you sent is valid other than the Vizio part, I need the actual model number, from the back of the tv, please.

Hello I called the Vizio customer service and was told there was a simple answer to my problem. That I could could call my cable company and because I pay a small home repair fee every month I could have them come out and make an adjustment in my black box near my TV setup and that would eliminate unwanted and unnecessary settings by accident on my remote..
TV Model#VizioVECO320LIA Serial # LSADVBK (###) ###-####. According to your own statement,The amount already deducted from my account is $38. so as far as I can see, there has been no suggestions given for answers that I can approve or disapprove, so sorry to say so I really don't have anything to show for my investment and am requesting a refund.. I am sorry I did not know about the thing with the cable company before I used this site. I could have saved a lot of yours and my time. I am sure with the proper information your people would have found the same thing given enough time. I any case there is no need to carry this any further. Thank you for your efforts. Goodbye.

I would have been able to quickly give an answer previously had I received a reply with the requested information.

Yes, you paid the agreed upon fees to the site.

This is a paid support service, it is not free help. You paid the agreed upon fees, and we are all independent techs here working on our own personal time in a good faith effort to help.

I have no access to cancel or refund anything, and to ask for that is also asking me to work for free for my time spent in a good faith effort to help you with no reply.
