If its "hard to turn on" it is likely in the main power supply, if you can safely get it apart look there for puffed up caps--see photos of what to look for:

Sounds like simply interference, It could be a glare from a glass door for example. also it depends on how far you are from the TV, I would reposition your self a little closer to test the theory, If the distance is the issue you can either move closer or stop by a local radio shack and grab a remote extender that can extent your signal significantly they are normally between 10 and 20 bucks. also if the remote is not the factory remote that came with the TV and belongs to the cable company then that could also be the issue, Vizio is still not 100 percent support by cable company universal remotes. I do tech support for Charter Communications and VIZO is one of the biggest issues I see when it comes to remote compatibility with cable remotes.
Hope this helps and as always please feel free to reply with any further questions. take care :)

Loud noise then lose picture

The green power LED probably is merely indicating that power is getting to your TV but the internal power supply is failing as evidenced by the loud "pop".

I get no picture. the blue power light blinks four times. i took it in to get serviced. repairmen said it was power supply and complete y board. but i found out he wasn't very honest.

Sounds like a on/off sensor like I had with my vizio. the light would blink several times and finally the picture just went blank and it would not turn on. a similar thing happened to a friends tv also and both times it was a on/off sensor, in this area it costs about 30 or so dollars to fix. probably higher in the city
