Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Vizio VP50 HDTV: I connected an HD antenna for first time on the TV and when I switch to DTV the screen goes blank, remote inoperable. Only controls on side of TV work, but there is no way to do a scan for DTV channels. So, without cable or satellite, this TV is just a giant computer monitor.



Answers :

I have the exact same problem. It may be the tuner board is bad. I did some research and it seems like this tv is junk. I saw a link that said call Vizio and they are aware of all it's problems and are willing to give a new tv free of charge. I called and they knew nothing about it, but did offer to fix it out of warranty for $285 all problems fixed out the door. Also, TV locks up on RGB input and can't switch inputs until I hooked a computer to the RGB input, then I was able to select a different input.
\012Please post if you found a solution to the DTV issue..
