This issue is actually caused by my cable box. Access the audio SETTINGS on Hand held Cable Remote, and turn on the HDMI and or "Digital Audio Out" option. found on 'more' settings list. This should fix the issue. I had assumed the Cable companeis 'Boot' would have installed this feature during its initialization.

SOURCE: My Vizio TV tells me,
Funny, same thing happened to me about the same time! Took me a while to figure out how to fix it. You have to get to the HDTV Settings menu and hit the Help icon. Do a Clear Memory/(Factory Default) and go thru that process, basically you go through all the settings just as you did the first time you powered up the TV. This will fix your problem.
The challnge is...how to get to the HDTV Settings menu when your VIA button only brings up the error you described? I finally got there like this: Hit the "Input" button on the remote, navigate to "TV" and hit OK (basically just select TV as your input), hit the Menu button on the remote and that will bring up the HDTV Settings menu and then proceed as above

You can use your phone camera to test the remote. Place the remote to the camera and push to see the IR on the camera. If this works for more than 3 minutes then the IR detector or the processor circuit in the main board is faulty.
This means you need to remove the main panel and use a multimeter to test when the remote is used, trace and see if the fault leads further to the processor.

Testimonial: "I will try this procedure,,wish me Luck!!"
Yes its very repairable as long as the logo stays white you can assume the main boards good. I would recomend contacting the people at www.tvrepairworld.com by hitting the contact us button from their website. They will be able to assist you in finding out whats happening with the set for free. They have most parts available as well.
