Solution 2: Reset Your Receiver
[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/global/icons/sm_cl_blu__number1_icon.png">On some DIRECTV receivers there is a red reset button located inside the access card door on the front panel. Press it, then wait for your receiver to reboot.

Note: If you cannot locate the red reset button or your receiver does not have one, unplug the receiver's power cord from the electrical outlet, wait 15 seconds, and plug it back in. Then press the Power button on the front panel of your receiver and wait for your receiver to reboot.

Did you try turning it off with the closed caption button on the remote? Its labelled cc. If you dont have the original Vizio remote you will need to go into menu-settings and find the closed caption and turn it off there

Check whether the audio is muted by accidental press at remote control button. Enter its sound menu, and check it. If muted, as you know there will be no audio output. If not muted, check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Hi Evan
Essentially it's a computer inside a modern Flat Screen TV these days. Not a lot that the average person can do...
But... if you feel capable of opening the back....
Once you get inside and check for loose or poor connectors,
I would be looking for leaky Electrolytic Capacitors.
Usually in the power supply section.
Look for brown fluid leaks on PCB & a very slightly puffed out or bowed top on the cap. (ready to explode)
Take a picture of suspect. Take note of Polarity (black stripe) & write down uf & voltage & temp values.
eg 1000uF @ 25v
To prove you are on the right track, you can connect a similar rated Cap across (in parallel) the existing Cap.
Depending on space etc. Even by short extension wires.
Power up & see results. Fault Gone or Not?
Unsolder & Remove suspect Cap & try to replace with higher voltage rating & slightly higher uf capacity depending on space available around the components.

Good Luck

I just called Vizio and they said to unplug the TV, then physically hold in the power button on the TV for 2 minutes.

Some service manuals are hard to get. It is sometimes best to contact the manufacture of the device to request one. You can call them and see if you can request one.

Connect the sound bar to the cable box audio out.

It looks like the control board is not receiving a voltage that it is expecting to tell it the TV is fully on, and is going into a fail-safe shutdown mode. I would start by looking for swollen capacitors on the boards in the set as well as for loose/bad solder connections on those boards. Aside from that you would need a service manual and some test equipment to troubleshoot it. Sorry I can't be more help, I have not had to work on this particular model before.

it sounds like an rca (white or red) cAble is not fully inseted, or the audio level of the device making the bad sound is too high and distorting. try checking the red and white cables are fully inserted on both ends. if that fails, try another rca cable.
