Sometimes I will turn mine on, hear the click, but the VISO logo stays amber, and then I hear another click, and the TV doesn't come on. I press the on button on the remote again, and the TV comes on just fine. This only happens occasionally, but I wonder why?
Here were my questions about similar happenings, and Vizio's reply ( in RED
)for the "3" series. Think it they might apply to the "1" and "2" series as well.
"And our 553 is performing very well. But has restarted once by itself and did a lot of orange light blinking on the restart. Assume these restarts were due to the units rebooting due to an operation or system problem and they did what they were supposed to do, reboot?The connected TV's update their firmware during this process.
Our 553's are not connected to the internet, so how could they "update their firmware"? Have OTA only. By the way, our firmware is: C1.2.14_RC1 Newer out of the box 553's have higher numbers as: C1.2.12._RC2RESPONSE:
When the Vizio logo flashes between orange and white, it's simply scanning file systems and preparing to be powered on. ( basically the system polls itself to insure it has not crashed / gotten to a state where the user can do nothing. Ideally if the aforementioned were to occur, the system would power itself off, vizio logo would flash orange to white for up to 5 minutes, then power itself back on.
They refer to the above RESPONSE as the "watchdog" in the TV's op's system.
Your call to Vizio Tech Support could verify if one of the above or both is happening to your set.
Hope this helps...
ps: first post on this thread, but have monitored for a long time. Feel there is plenty of similarities between the ""1", "2", "3" and the soon to be released "3D4" series.
