Okay, do this.

On the top of the t.v. itself, hold down the Volume+ (up) and the Menu button down at the same time. This will turn off the "power lock." This is also how you turn on the "power lock." (Though I can't think of a reason anyone would ever want to do this.)

I have the same problem with mine. Walk up to your TV, press and hold the power button on the front of the set. While holding this button, press the power button on the remote.

Mine behaves this way on all functions. Even to change the channel, volume or input (among other things) I have to press and hold the power button on the set. Very annoying. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who might have had this problem and found a solution for it. Viewsonic support isn't qualified to troubleshoot these kinds of technical issues.

I have an inspiron 1526 with 2 flashing padlock icons and a black screen i cant turn it on what can i do?

Those are Diagnostic indicators that point you to the possible cause. The padlocks will have a number ( Turns on when the numeric keypad is enabled.) or capital letter(Turns on when the uppercase letter function is enabled.) or arrow key(Turns on when the scroll lock function is enabled.).
According to those indicators you either have a bad memory module or your CPU (processor) is bad.

Remove the power chord. Remove the battery. Remove all the external peripherals. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. Put the battery back in. Turn on the laptop.
It should work fine now.

if not turn the laptop upside down then slap it lightly 3-4 times
this will then surely fix the problem and if not then take it to the service center.

The light thats a lock with the letter a starts blinking and it wont boot up. how do i fix this

The blinking light is just a status for the caps light. If the unit does not power on or boot , you may have
A) a low or bad battery, Take the battery out and try to power up just by plugging the unit into the outlet.

B) If that does not work, You may have a loose DC connector on the system board. Unplug the plug from the outlet, then slightly wiggle the connector at the back of the laptopwhere the adapter plugs in. If it moves , the connector is loose on the MLB.

The blue lights located above the keyboard indicate the following:
Turns on when the numeric keypad is enabled.
Turns on when the uppercase letter (caps lock) function is enabled.
Turns on when the scroll lock function is enabled.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Internet wireless connectivity

This is a common and annoying problem. Your router is running and connected, but they are either not using the same encryption keys or else you have some other setting incorrect (encryption type is a common one).

Turn off the laptop's wireless connection and enable its cable (wired) connection. Connect the laptop to the back of the router physically with a network cable. In a browser type (or other similar number - check your router's quick start guide). Log into the router and go to the WIRELESS SETTINGS. Write down everything you see (channel, station ID, encryption type and key, and whether MAC ADDRESS LOCKING is on (if it is turn it off for now)). Take these settings, reverse the process on your laptop and try to connect wirelessly with the new settings. They have to be exactly the same

If it all works, you need to go back into the router and enable MAC ADDRESS LOCKING after giving it your laptop's MAC ADDRESS, enable the highest standard encryption both the router and the laptop support, and turn off station ID broadcasting if possible.

If you still cannot connect wirelessly, connect again through the wire connection, and turn off encryption, turn off MAC ADDRESS LOCKING, and try again.

Good luck...
