Funny, same thing happened to me about the same time! Took me a while to figure out how to fix it. You have to get to the HDTV Settings menu and hit the Help icon. Do a Clear Memory/(Factory Default) and go thru that process, basically you go through all the settings just as you did the first time you powered up the TV. This will fix your problem.

The challnge is...how to get to the HDTV Settings menu when your VIA button only brings up the error you described? I finally got there like this: Hit the "Input" button on the remote, navigate to "TV" and hit OK (basically just select TV as your input), hit the Menu button on the remote and that will bring up the HDTV Settings menu and then proceed as above

Tip

Vizio Factory Menu


Vizio Tv's have an extra menu that contains factory settings which you can change or fix should you have a problem with your TV. Here's how to access the menu: 1. Hold down the CH+ (Channel Up) and the CH- (Channel Down) buttons on the TV. 2. While holding these buttons press the power button on the TV. 3. After the TV comes on, let go of the buttons, and enter the TV menu as usual. 4. You should now see a "F" in the lower right hand corner of the menu. (If not please repeat steps 1-3) 5. Hold down the menu button on your remote and the Factory Settings menu should appear. From this point you can tweak whatever settings you wish. *CAUTION* - Make sure that before you do anything you write down the settings before you change them. I have seen it mentioned that certain settings never be adjusted. Please search the internet regarding your problem before you do anything. A good resource is www.avsforum.com

The volume on the TV doesn't work. TV worked fine last night


You can always turn your TV off, unplug it from the electrical outlet, wait for 30 seconds or so, plug it back in, then turn it back on. If you have kids check the menu options to see if they may have tampered with it unintentionally. If all else fails, call Vizio and ask for their professional help. If you are not satisfied with their help and assistance, make a complaint by going to BBB.org (Better Business Bureau). Maybe if you tell Vizio that you're going to call the BBB then they might take you a little more seriously.
