I had been searching for an issue invovling my new Vizio TV, and I noticed you had responded to someone else's problem a couple months ago, with their Vizio turning off and not turning back on again. That's not my problem, but I had noticed that you asked them if their TV was plasma or LCD and if it made clicking noises. I have a 42" Vizio that I just purchased (by just, I literally mean yesterday), and it makes two loud clicking noises when it turns on and one loud click when it turns off. I was hoping since you posed them a question about this issue, perhaps you might know what is causing it.

I EMAILED VIZIO ABOUT MY PROBLEM. THEY RESPONDED IN 3 DAYS. THE TECH AND I THEN TRADED A COUPLE OF EMAILS. HE CONFIRMED THE INFO ABOUT THE TV WITH ME. HE EMAILED ME THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM AND PART NUMBER. IT WAS THE MAIN BOARD. I ORDERED THE PART AT VIZPARTS.COM FOR ABOUT 180.00. INSTALLED IT MYSELF AND THE TV WORKS FINE. I WISH IT HAD BEEN UNDER WARRANTY BUT IT WAS 18 MONTHS OLD AND THE WARRANTY WAS FOR 12 MONTHS.
Pretty good chance the logic board is defective. all remote and manual command go trough the logic board via a micro prosseor. If that is bad the set gets false commands. If the run number is the same on that model they probably all have the same problem.. Get another brand not made in China.
I recently had the same problem with my vizeo hdmi port # 1 going bad. Tried everything to fix and called vizeo. There solution for a master reset was turn off tv and unplug from the wall. then hold down the power button for 30 secs and let go. plug the tv back in and hold down the volume down and input select buttons down on side of the tv for 15 secs. release the buttons and turn the tv on after powering down all the components connectd to the tv. If this does not work they told me you need to have it sericed for a bad hdmi input. Hope this info helps anyone out there. It didn't work for me. Its a bummer cause the tv is well taken care of and only 18 months old. Best of luck to all others.
I had this same problem. Vizio sent someone out to replace the motherboard. It didn't fix the problem. Since it was under warranty, they replaced it with a newer model VU42L. Doesn't have this problem, but it has others.
I contacted Vizio the other day. They tell me that they use the same generic codes as LG. I have Suddenlink Cable, formerly Charter, so I still use the Charter remote. My remote only needed 3 digits and I have noticed that many need 4 or 5. I can tell you that the LG code worked for my tv. I can power on/off, volume, and change the channel. All other functions require the manufacture's remote. The code I used is 005. There was also 004 but that did not work on my tv. Hope this helps someone!
