    TV worked great. Go to turn on last night and nothing. No picture, no sound, nothing. Have checked to make sure there is power to the set. Is there a reset button or something that simple?

My stove will not work it always shows PF how do I fix this as nothing works

PF is most likely power failure. Nothing responds in keypad? Try setting clock. If nothing responds, your control is probably bad.

No power on vizio E371VL

Vizio TV model E371VL turned on ok and had tv show on ch.4.
Turned on the DVD player and put movie dvd in and closed tray.
We have done thhis numerous of times and never had a problem.
This time " HDMI " was showing on top right of black screen,
then " No Signal " came up on screen, then went completely black screen. Called Vizio, they had me power off and unplug set.
Push and Hold power button on TV for 30 sec. to reset.
Replug set and Vizio (lighted) on lower front of set lighted normally dull orange. Pushed power button on remote and when set did not come on, then push main power button on side of TV. Nothing, no White " Vizio " from orange light. Is this a power supply (0500-0412-1020) problem ? Thanks, Sidney (

Hi, The red light shows there is power connected to the set. The fact that it won't power up is due to a problem with the power supply circuit in the set. or a problem with the switch circuit or the mains power transformer. Regards John Ps don't know why they're giving me these questions, I answer questions on auto's

P4C800E Deluxe Motherboard Problem

A bad checksum can be caused by a flat or near flat BIOS battery. Replace the battery and set the date and time.
Also set the BIOS to the default setup, ie go to reload default settings, or remove the BIOS battery for 1/2 hour the insert the battery and set the Date and Time.

VS-45603 we have power but nothing else will show up on screen.

I would suspect bad solder connections on the convergence IC's caused one to short out a blow one or more pico fuses, thus causing the set to go into shutdown so as to stop further damage to the set. The TV will need to be seen by a profesional to confirm or deny this.

Ive had a look at the manufacturer web site but ther doesn't seem to be any driver for your model. You should be able to turn the battery warning alarm off in the management settings
