Can you return it?

BTW, you should just reply in the thread you started previously, this way everyone can keep track of the troubleshooting and ideas others have already given you.

It obviously has a failing component inside, and unless you have the skill and equipment to diagnose and repair it yourself, and access to replacement parts then i imagine you won't be able to fix it yourself.

If you can't return it for a replacement, have it repaired for several hundred dollars and a month or two wait for parts, or just throw it in the trash and buy a good brand instead

I too receintly have a problem with my Visio TV. When I came home the other day and turned the tv on the VISIO light lights but no picture. As I checked all cables and tried to troubleshoot the problem I found that a dvd would produce sound but not video. I can't believe its not working as its only about a year and a half old now.

It had been doing a reset like procedure while we were watching it but now it does'nt work at all.

Post here if you find a resolution.
