"We had our cable provider come out to check everything who concluded it was the TV (Vizio VA370M), so we called Vizio. Remote would not work to access volume, TV menu, etc., and the TV was shutting on and off every few minutes. The Vizio technician told us to do the following and it worked!
Don't know if someone already posted something similar but here's is what he told us to do: 1. Disconnect everything from the TV including the power cord from the power outlet and back of the TV 2. Press the power button on the TV (not the remote) for 30+ seconds. 3. Plug the power cord back into the TV and into a wall outlet (not a surge protector). 4. Turn TV on without anything connected for about 5 minutes. 5. Reconnect your cable, satellite, etc. cords back into the TV and reboot as instructed by your provider. Hope this helps. I read these complaints which made it seem hopeless but decided to call Vizio anyway. My TV is now working."
