T V turns on, can't get the HDMI to appear on the screen for the signal.


HDMI is the High Definition Media Interface PORT on the back of a modern Flat Panel TV or Monitor.
The remote control should allow a selection menu to appear on the screen so you can choose an alternate signal input from another device or set top box.
Perhaps the TV senses that there is no signal on that HDMI cable plugged into the back port, so therefore it won't show it on the screen menu.
Turn on the device attached to the other end of the HDMI cable.

Televison station won't scan


If you are receiving a "No Signal" error message, verify that:
  1. All of the cables physically connected to the TV and the input device are secure.
  2. The input device is turned on.
Your TV needs to scan for channels before it can show programming from an antenna, from cable TV when the cable comes directly from the wall (no cable box), or from a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with a coaxial (RF) cable. Do not scan for channels if you have a cable or satellite box connected using AV (Composite), Component, or HDMI cables. The box selects the channel, not the tuner inside your television. If you are not using the "TV" input, press the INPUT button on your remote until the correct input mode is selected.
To perform a channel scan using the coaxial input:
  1. Press the INPUT button on your remote to view your current input source. The TV (coaxial cable) input must be selected. This may appear as "TV," "ANT," or the channel and call letters of a station.
  2. If the TV input is not selected, press INPUT until the TV input mode is selected.
  3. Open the on-screen menu and select TV or Tuner option. (This varies by model.)
  4. Highlight Tuner Mode and select the correct option:
    • Antenna-over-the air signals from an antenna
    • Cable-direct from the wall cable TV, or a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with coaxial cable
  5. Select Auto Search or Auto Channel Scan. (This varies by model.)
  6. When the search reaches 100% complete, exit to the menu.
  7. Check the available channels:
    • Antenna or direct-from-wall cable-Press the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons on your VIZIO TV remote to view the available channels.
    • Cable or satellite box- Will return only one channel. Use the cable or satellite remote's Channel Up and Channel Down buttons.
If this does not resolve the issue, power cycle the TV and then re-run the channel scan:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet.
  3. While the TV is unplugged from the wall, press and hold the Power button on the TV for 30 seconds.
  4. Release the power button.
  5. Plug the TV back into the electrical outlet.
  6. Turn on the TV.
Note: There is also an option to reset the TV to the factory default settings. This option is in either the SETUP or SYSTEM section of the on-screen menu. The option may be "Reset all settings", "System Reset," or "Reset & Admin." Consult your TV's user manual for the location and steps for resetting your model.
  1. Remove the coaxial cable from the DTV/TV connector on the back of your television and perform a channel scan to clear the existing channels. See the procedure above. This should not find any channels.
  2. Re-attach the coaxial cable to the DTV/TV connector and perform a new channel scan.

FOLLOW this instruction and fix it. God bless you
·
Connect the component video, HDMI1 or AV1 cable from the component device (such a DVD player) to the appropriate input port on the TV. This port may say "Video IN" on the back of the TV. Ensure that the cable is connected securely at both ends.
· 2
Use the remote control's device button(s) to access the menu and select the input through the menu that matches the type of cable input connected to the back of the TV. For example, if you connect the cable to the HDMI1 input port on the back of the TV, selecting anything but the HDMI1 option with the remote control may cause the "No Display" message to appear, which usually means that the TV is not receiving a signal at the connection input you have selected.
·

· 3 Turn the power on to the component you want to view. If the power was off, turning it on will activate the display and replace the "No Display" message.
· 4
Test any other connected components at their selected inputs to see that the TV is receiving the video signal properly from those sources.
· 5
Check with your cable or satellite provider if their set-top box is the source of the "No Display" message and is powered on, to see if the problem is caused by a disruption in their service. If using an antenna, adjust the antenna and re-scan for available channels.

When i turn tv on, visio 37" 64hz 1080p HDTV, it


The Vizio 1080P HDTV offers a variety of features and input jacks that make it a true multimedia centerpiece. Occasionally, however, there are a few scenarios in which the screen blacks out.

  1. Basic
    • Verify that all input cables and your power cord are firmly inserted. If you are viewing a program that utilizes RGB (red, green, blue) or HDMI cables, be certain your TV is not in sleep mode. It will time out and appear blacked out in this case. Verify your sleep timer hasn't been turned on. Try resetting the TV by turning it off for 30 minutes.
    Advanced
    • If you experience limited or no lights, the power supply is likely failing. If you feel comfortable doing so, open the back of the TV and look at the power supply area (shock hazard). Follow the power cord area to find it. Check for bad capacitors, which look like small batteries with connectors soldered to the board. They will be blown or bulged out. Replace them or the complete power supply.
    Other Considerations
    • Verify your surge suppressor is not bad. These often have a connected equipment guarantee that covers your repair if a power surge caused failure. You can reset all settings to original modes by pressing "Reset All Settings " in the Setup menu.
