Question about Vizio P50HDTV10A 50 in. Plasma HDTV
Everything else works fine. Turn to DTV and nothing, not even the "no signal" comes on. Any suggestions?
Call vizio's customer support line and tell them you got the 'pop of death', They know this tv is a lemon and are standing behind it to make it right. They will take down your info and serial number and set up a repair order FREE OF CHARGE. When I called, they told me that this model was know to have serious defects and was given a lifetime manufacturer warranty to cover all parts and labor! What happens is that they send someone out, he pronounces the TV to be dead and not worth fixing and they give you a brand spankin new one! This way they get a better reputation by 'covering' their duds but reality is that they don't have to keep fixing this tv if they replace it with a model that only has one year MFG warranty. Either way you win. Post back if you get a different result from calling Vizio. I'd like to know how everyone else's experience is turning out.

I have the same issue. DTV input does not work, nor does it communicate with the remote. Vizio support is no help at all so far.
