Actually, you may not have to wait as long.

Today, the Yahoo! app on the bottom kept cycling between "Loading" and "Searching for available updates". I took a photo before it all went to hell:



Same issue even after restarting the TV. I eventually unplugged it completely from the outlet. The result? It won't even power on anymore. I guess I'm very lucky this happened before my warranty expired (2 months).

EDIT: Powered right back up after 20 minutes. Yahoo! message is back, though.
EDIT2: Updating message also gone after ~1.5 hours.

My 2013 80" did this after we lost power from TS Bill this afternoon.

It just cleared itself after about 1.5 hrs also.

If you can manage to block the TV's network access, the message stops. I went into my router settings and blocked the TV's IP address.

Last week, this topic was on the front page of Vizio's support site. The fix is to unplug your router to knock the TV off the internet. Then do a factory reset. Plug the router back in and your done. Unfortunately, that will erase any custom settings such as picture, sound, etc. - but it will fix the problem.

For a second it looked like they added 3D support back.
