Question about Vizio Televison & Video
Once the setup is complete the TV works fine as long as it isn't turned off. Once it is turned off it must be set up through the Vizio app to stream again. The TV remembers it's name and can even be controlled through the tablet ie. Change inputs etc. It cannot stream until it has gone through the pairing and setup process again.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

stored voltages are high no touching these circuts becuase they hold charges and alot of screws.
fualty capacitors you say after a while it stays on theres a full charge in the unit theres some type of discharging effect on the set after its off for a while. voltage goes to low or unstable after it is off for a while. your better off getting the service docs for this set if you want to diy..other wise get a tv tech to check it for you. hope this helps

check out the power supply board! Look for popped capacitors. They either leak or swell up. They are the can shaped things on the board with the plastic coverings on them...you can usually see a swollen cap sticking up over its covering as a telltale sign.
Good luck and be careful

could it be Ch 9's digital signal is not broadcasting right? what is your refresh rate on your tv? 60 or 120hz? if its 120hz, then its more then likely the digital broadcast, if its 60hz I think its your tv can't keep up with their signal that may be at 120hz. Make since??

The Vizio does not have Internet capabilities. You need to hook up a computer via the VGA or HDMI port. Then youor computer controls what you do with the intenet.

You have faulty electrolytic caps in the power supply section of the tv. Capacitors with reduced quantities of electrolyte take longer to charge compared to normal ones. That is the reason its coming on after you repeat the on/off sequence a few times. If you are not good at soldering, replacing the power supply should do the job. It should cost you about 75-100$. Let me know if you want to do it yourself(please get me the model number of the set as well so that I can find you a replacement).
