Tv tries to come on and the Vizio Logo lights but is very dim. It will go from amber to white, go off and repeat. I pressed and held the on button on the side and it began clicking and came on for about 45...
Lightning definitely sounds like the issue.We had our computer plugged into a surge protector last year but our computer got fried.We purchased a Belkin surge protector which is much better.The smallest one they sell I believe is 6 outlets for $50 BUT they back that with a $50,000 guarantee.If something fails due to their product,they will reimburse you for up to $50K,and I already called just in case,you do not need receipts.They make up to 12 outlets and that has a $300K guarantee.We live in the lightning capital of the country,Tampa area,and so far no problems.Also,it's not really good to hold down the button to force it to come on because the clicking probably means it's trying to save itself,but at this point it doesn't much matter.The TV will need to be looked at.I wish I could help more but the TV makers won't let me as a consumer,find any parts prices or diagrams.Sorry , but good luck!
