Vizio TV with "No Signal" floating on screen

I'm house and pet sitting at a friends' house who have a large screen Vizio TV and DirecTV. Right now, the TV is set on HDMI, but there's a floating message on a black screen: ''No Signal!'' This afternoon the TV's picture was ''pixelating'' so I called the DirecTV folks. After doing a little trouble shooting, the rep said he didn't have any other ideas and I'd have to get a rep to come to the house. Since I'm not authorized to do that, I'm wondering if anyone can help me get this back up and running?

Directv, no signal Directv box on, screen "no signal", checked all connections, held red button in box door - blue light on right moved r a while - nothing changed


possibly the port you're using on the TV is bad, try another port, if still same "no signal" try different cable, also, try testing another device connected to TV without using DirecTV box, if the test device works, Call DirecTV support to report your issue with box, if the test device doesn't work the motherboard of the TV needs replaced.

Solution 2: Reset Your Receiver
[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/global/icons/sm_cl_blu__number1_icon.png">On some DIRECTV receivers there is a red reset button located inside the access card door on the front panel. Press it, then wait for your receiver to reboot.

Note: If you cannot locate the red reset button or your receiver does not have one, unplug the receiver's power cord from the electrical outlet, wait 15 seconds, and plug it back in. Then press the Power button on the front panel of your receiver and wait for your receiver to reboot.

Hello
Check all the signal cables at the backside of your Vizio for firmness. If there is any loose or bad cable connection, especialy with HDMI; will poise this problem. Check the input selection also. If improper input selection is done, there will be no signal logo will fly around.If you have selected TV instead of HDMI, when HDMI is connected and you want to see the programme, is an example of improper signal selection. Check these. OK.

You need to make sure that is has enough signal, if you have poor signal, you will get pixels(as oppesed to snowy picture on CRT televisions) make sure all plugs are plugged in correct, and try diff inputs from DirecTV to the Tv to ensure its not the HDMI input thats faulty. Good Luck.

Vizio 42" LCD. Flat screen. Won't display CC on setup screen using HDMI input. Have a Sharp tv on another Directv box and it shows CC via HDMI connection. Problem with receiver or with TV? Costco's "Help"...


CC is a feature of the TV. All TVs are different in features and the Vizio is limited on its features due to cost. To eliminate the directv receiver connected to Vizio TV just swap with the receiver connected to Sharp TV and see if CC is displayed.

Black Rectangles on 42" Vizio HDTV LCD


Your DirecTV signal is probably too low. That would produce the small black rectangles (pixilation). Also, try replacing the cable you are using to get the signal from the DirecTV receiver.

DIrectv Sat internal box.


You can try eliminating whethor or not the receiver is actually the problem by moving it to another TV and seeing if it works on one that isn't having any problems. Or moving a working receiver onto the TV to see if it will pick up signal with a working receiver. If you don't have any receivers in your house working, then odds are something needs to be serviced outside your home, like the Dish and/or LNB.

Did DirecTV actually come out to the home and troubleshoot at the site? If not, they would have no way of knowing if it's the TV or Satellite that's causing the issue.
