I purchased the tv less than a year ago and within the last 2 month the problem started.
First of all when you turn off the TV, the red light has always stayed on. When you turn it on the red light goes from red to blue, while the tv stays on.
Now when you turn it off the light still stays red, but when you go to power it on the light goes to blue, but then "gives up" and goes back to red. Then you try to power it on again and you'll never see the blue light.
However when I leave it unplugged or just unplug it for a while and then try it it is either hit or miss and the TV will finally come on.
I have checked the electric circuit in the room and it has checked out just fine.
Do you have any idea what my problem is?

Not sure about the tradestander office statement, but saying that a TV should last at least five years is like saying that my dishwasher should last the same amount of time (which mine has lasted longer). You, like most of us are up against the hope that products produced in today' world will stand up to longevity as those products produced 20 years ago; it just does not apply anymore. That is why there are warranty's, depending on what model is purchased. I've always bought a Sony TV, and NEVER had a problem (my last Sony TV lasted for almost 20 years, and that is because someone in my house, and no one will say who, turned the volume too high and ruined one of the speakers, less I would still have it). Just my opinion. If fixing the TV is more than 50% of the cost, then it probably is not worth fixing.
we bought our Sony Wega in 2006 - we changed the bulb twice both times they exploded; we threw this tv out one month ago - sorry but its literally GARBAGE! within the first year the optical block went, then the replacement under my extended warranty that optical block was defective-within a month all the purple hues started showing up again - warranty over - never will I purchase a 4,000 tv nor any sony products ever again! the only good product I ever liked of sony was the Walkman!

Hello. If your POP (Proof of Purchase like store receipt) is less than 1 year old you have to contact Vizio immideately and setup appointment for authorized technician in-home service. You might have problem with LCD Panel (or plasma whatever you have) that result of manufacturing defect and reveals itself only after several months of use. You still covered by manufacturer's warranty and you don't need to pay anything to get your TV fixed or replaced. After warranty expiration replacing a panel generally cost more than buying new TV. Act as soon as you can and don't try to fix anything by yourself. Regards. Russ.
Try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so theTV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, most likely the TV has a power supply board is the problem. Or, it's just a fuse that blown inside the TV.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.
I have the same problem with the same TV from Tosiba. I think Tosiba know about it but did nothing to repair it but sold millions of the same TV and Made good money. I think we all should soin togather and file a class action lawsuts against the company. They must fix the TV or pay our money back plus pay for our pain and suffering. There are many lawfirm will take this case and get paid from proceed. Ray@raykraan.us
2 years and three months but, what counts are the hours that it was on. Your software only really effects the way the TV interacts with HDMI inputs and really won't effect much else. The manufactures only expect 4-5000 hours on the lamp. Some go less some go more. You need to replace that lamp most likely.
