Has anyone else had this happen? It has only happened two times since I got the tv a week ago. Other than that the tv is great! Any help would be appreciated as I have 30 days to return if needed
Welcome to the thread. See you have already helped someone. THAT'S GREAT!
What model do you have. Our 553's do not have a "cloudy flash of white light around the edges" when they shut down. Goes directly to black. Believe that is worth a call to Vizio Tech Support.
Do not know why your set shuts off by itself. But we have had posters whose sets have turned on by themselves, but have not heard back from them as to how that problem was resolved.
One should always be leery of a floor model. They can get pretty abused. I have purchased them and am batting about 50/50. Hope you have good luck with yours.
Not aware of any of the "3" SERIES being discontinued, but rumors always show up here as well.
