Question about Vizio P50HDTV10A 50 in. Plasma HDTV
My 50 inch Vizio seems to be out of whack. We've had it for a year used the DVD player, Wii and VHS player without incident. I swear I didn't change a thing and one day none of the extra components will function. Checked out all the connections and nothing seems to be wrong there. I am assuming the problem is with the TV since I can see the players running, but no picture or audio appears on the screen. However, I am a total tech idiot so any advice will be appreciated.
I had the same problem, I turned off the power for 5 mins, let hdtv reset, i rlugged in dvd player, into either inputs and they all work.

Since all the source switching is under control of the computer in the set, if none of the external sources comes on it's got to be the TV's fault. First try unplugging the set and giving it 5 or 10 minutes and plug it back in to allow the processor to reset. If the external stuff still doesn't show up, check all the menu options to see if anything allows you to disable them (parental lock, for example). If nothing else works, the set may need a service call.
(I'm not too familiar with this brand and don't have service information. But I have seen other brands behave this way when something messes up the control system and the computer inside doesn't know what features it has anymore. Sometimes the problem was fixed by resetting things via factory service mode, and other times the computer chip needed replacement.)
