    I have a 60' Vizio LED Smart TV. Everything works fine except since I had a cable box hooked up with the cable company I can no longer access the Smart TV apps. My password won't work and I can't find how or where to change it. Is there any trick to changing the password in settings or getting the current password to work?

The factory menu won't help you diagnose anything. If you are having issues on both HDMI ports, definitely check the cable and that the output works on the DVD player, try this on another TV if possible. If all else fails, call Vizio @ 1-877-MYVIZIO and they will send one of us techs out to replace the main A/V board, that should resolve your problem.

Switching from HDMI2 watching computer back to HDMI1 to TV channels I have no picture coming on the TV. Why ?


Look if there is a FIRMWARE update for your model of TV and the SAORVIEW.

Many a times, the TV lock in with the frequency and will not release until the proper reset command arrives.

Try switching to a different resolution on the computer before you switch HDMI port

Why can't my TV find a digital signal when connected to my digital ready aerial? Tuning for digital stations finds none. Does this TV require a set top box? If not how can I make it find and play n


hey, when connect any aerial in the back of the TV make sure you have a look for the name of the connection you use ( Skart,ext1,ext2,usb,hdmi1, hdmi2 etc.) so you can do a search on that extension. if you connect something on Hdmi1 and search on hdmi2 you won't find anything. you have to search on Hdmi1. PS: good luck.

I am connecting Yamaha DVD player to the Vizio M420 NV via HDMI. i have a picture but no sound. how do I gain audio when using HDMI?


HDMI has both Audio and Video (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and should carry both. However, I had this problem with a client just the other day and it turned out that the firmware on his TV needed to be up[graded. Different model TV, but I believe you may need to download the latest software/firmware update via your PC and put it on a flash drive and then flash the firmware on your TV to get it to work. Sorry I don't have the specifics; I was stumped and the Time-Warner guy ended up doing it. I hope this at least sends you in the right direction.

Turn hdmi2 on


hdmi is auto detecting and shouldn't need to be turned on. try plugging your hdmi1 device into the hdmi2 slot. if switching devices around doesn't get hdmi2 working, that jack is likely broken. all the hdmi ports go into the 1 main board inside, and a lot of times you would have to replace that board to fix. if only 1 jack now works, you could also get an hdmi switcher, and then plug all your devices into that, and then just plug the switcher into the working jack. let me know if I you require further assistance.

No picture on hdmi2


First of all connect the Direct TV box to HDMI 2 and see if it works there. If it does then the next step is to connect the DVD player to HDMI and see if it wors there. If not then connect the DVD player to the TV using the component inputs and if the DVD player works on those. If it does then maybe the HDMI interface in the DVD player no longer works as it needs to communicate with the TV.
