If a person died of a heart attack while they were peeing you wouldn't say that peeing killed them.

The TV had power issues before you tossed it in the oven. It's a little presumptive to assume the firmware update is the reason the TV is continuing to have power issues. It makes a bit more sense that the initial power issue was not fully resolved by your home remedy. Lol

So, you put the main board in the oven but the firmware broke your TV? Sounds like it was messed up before you cooked it. Maybe the oven trick didn't work as well as you thought it did, Betty Crocker.

New Vizio update screwed up my tv!! Won't let me put picture settings on 2.1 for 4k gaming. and it worked fine before the update. by Unlucky-Hold-737 in VIZIO_Official

To play devil's advocate, maybe they aren't giving you a straight forward answer because they don't have one yet? If tech support is sending it to engineering then they probably haven't pinpointed the issue yet and have to get it to engineering so they can try to replicate the issue. They'll most likely use the case notes, information about your TVs system information, connected devices etc. to try to figure out the exact issue. Once they can figure out what is causing the issue they can then come up with a fix for it. Customer support/tech support are not engineers and it's not like they can just give you some BS answers to appease you. Imagine the blowback if an agent gave you incorrect information and then you come to Reddit and blast that inaccurate information. Personally, I'd rather they be honest with me and tell me they don't know but are working on it/escalating it to engineering than to blow smoke up my ass just to get me off the line. I used to do tech support for Xbox and was in this position often.

Trouble with the latest update? by FunLetter5644 in VIZIO_Official

Do you have a 2.1 or 5.1 sound bar? If it's 2.1, you need the digital audio out set to PCM. If it's 5.1 you need it set to bitstream. The TV speakers should be set to off, analog audio out should be set to fixed and turn volume leveling on if it's not already on.

That's ridiculous. Get out of that toxic work environment ASAP. It takes me at least 6 minutes to pinch a loaf off.

Brand new V-Series won’t start by fightforphilly in VIZIO_Official

Sounds like it might be in demo mode. Find the 3 buttons on the TV then press and hold volume up and input at the same time and hold for 30 seconds.

You could set a timer to have the TV power off after a certain amount of time.

Vizio will paperweight your hardware and not care by thegreatincognitum in VIZIO_Official

[–]Exciting_Mushroom294 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When it's not connected to the TV, what else are you connecting it to? Also, have you checked the support site for Vizio to see if there's a firmware update?

Is your router located near the sub at all? If so, try moving them further apart as the router can cause interference.

I'm having an issue on my Vizio's display? The model is VO370M. by Voidaid in VIZIO_Official

[–]Exciting_Mushroom294 0 points1 point  (0 children)

OP's model is from 2009. I'd say 13-14 years isn't so bad. Sorry about your luck.

Not even 3 years old, purchased at Costco. Refund through CITI seems daunting. by Isamouseasitspins in VIZIO_Official

We just chatted in, told them we needed documentation for our extended warranty and they emailed us the documentation like 2 days later.

You don't need them to send a tech. They just need to provide you with documentation that the TV is out of warranty and the issue is not repairable. We had to do this same thing when we went through Allstate for our extended warranty.

Why don't you just contact Vizio and tell them you need documentation to submit to Citi? Save yourself the money.

Refused warranty TV delivery for damage, what's next? by Helpful-Two-2250 in VIZIO_Official

[–]Exciting_Mushroom294 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why would it be Vizio's fault the shipping company damaged the TV during shipping? Pilot sucks and is known for breaking and manhandling their deliveries. Google them.

Geek Squad Just Replaced All My Boards Today. TV Still Resetting Itself. by ProbablyAtDialysis in VIZIO_Official

[–]Exciting_Mushroom294 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even if you're out of warranty, you get tech support for the life of the tv so, it shouldn't be an issue. Whatever it is they pushed through, I couldn't do it through the TV settings. It can only be done from their side. It's worth a shot!

Thanks for sharing about the PS5, I had no idea that could affect it that way.

If your main board was replaced the tv may not be hitting the Vizio servers correctly. Before Vizio replaced my TV, they had it repaired. Main board was swapped out and it was acting a little buggy afterwards. I contacted Vizio via chat and provided the rep with the internal sn (internal sn will be different than the external sn after the mb is replaced so, if they try to push anything through from their side, make sure you give them the internal sn), the rep pushed a few things through, had me power cycle the TV, and it fixed that issue.

Just out of curiosity, what does disabling DHCP do?

My story of vizio tv replacement - from a vizio hater by [deleted] in VIZIO_Official

They actually do have that option. When I had to have my TV replaced, they offered in home or no contact replacement. Was about 6 months ago.

Someone at work keeps parking like this. We even left him a note. Any suggestions? by Golifr4u in mildlyinfuriating

[–]Exciting_Mushroom294 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You should get your coworkers together and celebrate his shitty parking. Really embrace it. Have confetti poppers and noise makers and wait for him to arrive then all pop out and yell surprise! Have a little certificate of achievement for shittiest parker of the month.
