My Video tv turned itself off last night and won't come back on tonight

The remote has no effect and I can't find a place on the tv to turn it on manually. Help, please?

Hello, thank you for using Howly. I’ll be happy to help you out! May I ask your name?

Nice to meet you, *****!
May I know the model of TV you are referring to?

Customer Replay



Facing your Vizio TV, the power button on newer models is located on the lower, right back side of the TV, beneath the HDMI ports. On older Vizio TVs, the power button is on the left, side of the bezel or on the front, bottom left corner of the bezel.

Ok, I pressed the button but nothing happened.

May I know if you see any indicators blinking?

Customer Replay

I forgot I had unplugged it. Plugged it back in and pressed the button again and the light came on in the lower left corner but then the light went back off. No picture or light of any kind on screen.

Got it
Please try these steps:
Unplug the device from the main supply, and leave it for a couple of minutes. Then, instead of turning it back on, hold down the power button for about thirty seconds. The TV initiates the reset and performs the necessary steps

Customer Replay

Ok, doing that.

Take your time

So I understand - do I plug it back in before holding down the power button?
