    I am staying at my neighbors and accidently hit something and I am getting the same blue screen-no signal. My remote control does not have cable/antenna choice. I am at my wits end. I have tried everything I can think of. Please help!

With out turning on the T.V., Push the [Input] button on the remote control. The TV should turn on and activate the input menu, just continue to push [Input] until it is set on TV (or HDMI, etc.). this should solve your problem.

After several hours of frustration, I finally read somewhere that you need to be sure everything is turned on....I think that I must have hit a botton that turned one of the hook ups off. Finally after three days....

You may try holding down the INPUT button during startup or pressing it a few times quickly.
If that doesn't help you may consider

TV is probably in the RGB mode. Since no computer is hooked up to the set it detects "No Signal" and will then shut off within seconds. To resolve you will need to attach a computer (laptop is easiest if you have one) to the TV RGB input. Turn on your TV and it should show what is on your computer screen. Then go to the input button on your TV and scroll to the input for the cable signal, or TV if no cable being used, and all should be good.

Plasma screen is blue it has been taken off wall think something may have been touched/flicked


Blue screen means no input. First make sure the HMDI cable and the device you get your golf results from is properly sending the signal. After that, you can then make sure that the TV screen itself works right by using the remote to change volume and ensure that it the screen shows the volume up graphic display. Once you know that is in working order, make sure you are on the right input channel by looking at where you input is plugged in to and setting the TV to that input via the remote. You can repeatedly hit the input button to cycle through the inputs if you want to be sure. (there are 8 of them) The last thing you can try is assume that the input you are using is bad and switch to another. (Go from HMDI 1 to HMDI 3)

The tv had blue screen briefly showing "no signal" then turns off. ... and I am getting the same blue screen-no signal.


If your television is displaying a blue screen or no signal message and then turning off, your TV may be at an inactive input. Here's how you can get back to watching your TV:
1. Powering on your TV and press the INPUT button on the VIZIO remote control repeatedly until a picture re-appears.
2. If this does not work, try again but press the button slower this time.

I got this off the vizio website.

Cable input is not working


Sounds like you mabe be on the wrong source. Try hitting the input button on the side of the set to change inputs. Input channel up or down find tv hit input again. If on the wrong input you will only get a blue screen and message no signal that will apear for a few seconds.

Our Visio VX37L comes on with blue screen and "no signal" at top of screen, then turns off in about 5 seconds. Does not respond to any of the other buttons such as "input". Once off then will not come back...


Television was repaired under warranty. A new motherboard was installed but did not fix the problem. A new front panel assembly was installed and fixed the problem.

The dogs rolled on the remote and the tv went to a blue screen and turned off. Every time you turn the tv on now it is a blue screen and says no signal and turns off after 10 seconds


This sounds as if when the dog rolled on your remote he has pressed the source button so that you are no longer on the TV cahnnel. The TV is looking for a different input eg. AV1/AV2/HDMI etc. This will give you a blue screen & as there is no signal the TV will switch off. Check on the remote for an Input or TV/AV or source button & make sure this is set for the TV signal.

Try selecting a different input, or checking the device which you are receiving the signal from. A blue screen typically indicates that there is no signal.
