Lower input lag on the P55-F1 is achieved by either setting the picture to "Game", or enabling the "Game Low Latency" option under the "More Picture" menu. The latter method is advised so that you can have some flexibility when it comes to picture modes. The other requirement is dependent on your source. As mentioned earlier in this review, the P55-F1 features 5 HDMI inputs, though HDMI 5 is a special input that is unlike the other 4 inputs.
While the other 4 inputs are capable of processing the full suite of HDMI 2.0 features including HDR, HDMI 5 is essentially a "gaming" input that is lower bandwidth, but can support full 120hz input, as well as provide the lowest possible input lag from the display. The single important catch here though, is that it does not support HDR, while it does support 4K. So, lets run the numbers with game mode turned on, and see how this plays out.
  • 4K: 26.2ms
  • 4K HDR: 26.2ms
  • 1080p: 27.3ms
  • 4K: 14.5ms
  • 1080p: 15.6ms

more than likely it's just the power board that's gone bad or depending on how careful you were disassembling it you could have simply hosed it by getting static inside the thing. Might try letting it sit unplugged for a couple hours and see if anything changes if not I would try maybe replacing the power board in it.

More than likely the sound board is defective.

Is it a "Smart TV"? if so yes, if no you are out of luck

The firmware will not have gone bad on its own and it is stored in the ROM permanently. The firmware might be available to a service centre.

Hello Jerry, for what you mention, the problem on your TV Vizio M43-C1, is in the backlighting, some of the LEDs that illuminate the LCD Panel are wrong and that is why you can not see the image
You have to change all the LEDs to do a correct job
I suggest you look for a specialized technical service
I hope you can solve the problem
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hello, does anything come back on when you re-energize the TV? If it powers up go to menu and select the input for your PS4 otherwise it sounds like a power issue on the TV. Time for either warranty or local TV Repair. Good luck

About the only thing I can think of (other than the remote has failed), is you may have inserted the batteries in wrong or used dead batteries.
