if you contact hisense all they can say is "send email, send email. there is no support from them at all. this is what i have found. TURN THE TV OFF BY THE SET ITSELF NOT BY THE REMOTE, THEN UNPLUG THE TV AND LEAVE IT OFF FOR 30-40 MINUTES OR BETTER YET OVERNIGHT. THIS WILL RESET THE TV. HOPE THIS HELPS

look closely at the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply. If you see any with the tops bulging out, replace them. Especially the 1000mfd caps labeled EC9, EC10, EC18, EC19, EC20

Old messages and bcipollina is gonna get to read this resonse twice; sorry-
If it just fails to turn on or ignores the remote, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself.
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.
BTW, from what I have read about Vizio, I think they are close relatives to iLo which was also sold by Wal-Mart.
Quality control anyone?

I had the same problem, couldn't change the channels with the remote or on the side of the TV. This was for a Vizio 37"
Here is the fix:
1. Turn on TV
2. With remote, press the Menu Button
3. Go to Antenna Menu
4. Select Auto Search
Let it search, it could take several minutes. It may not finish to 100%, mine got stuck at 79% for 10 minutes. It's fine if that happens, go ahead and cancel.
5. It should be done, your remote will work perfect along with the TV channel buttons.
