When I turn off my vizio 55 in smart tv, which is 11/2 yrs oldthe screen goes gray and does not shut off completely. Only input cable w/o cable box.

Try unplugging it for 10-15 minutes then plug it back in and try it again. If that still doesnt work resetting it then its most likely a software/firmware issue with the mainboard. Smart tv's are not so smart. Its like having a computer and tv built into one. Sometimes they just need a hard reboot to clear an issue. If that doesn't fix it see if there is an update available for the tv's firmware, usually in the setup and service menu on Vizio smart tv's.

Vizio can't play all kinds of videos or movies if those videos are not in the right format supported by Vizio. If you are an Apple user, you will easily notice that you can't watch iTunes movies on Vizio Smart TV because almost iTunes videos are in M4V format, a video container format developed by Apple and is optionally protected by DRM copy protection. That is the reason why iTunes movies can't be played on Vizio Smart TV.

Hi Donna
If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

I connected my Dell laptop to my Vizio HDTV with an SVGA Monitor Cable, but I get a blue screen and "No Signal" when I select Comp on the television's input menu.

It's because the tv is connected as a second monitor and it must be configured accordingly. Follow this
 the tv will be the second (2) display. Also make sure you select the native resolution of your tv for the best image quality.
