Hello. I live on the ground floor apartment of a multi-family home. Yesterday evening my Vizio TV in the living room all of a sudden starting turning off.. then turned on for 2 seconds.. then turns off.. then turns on for 2 seconds.. continuously. It's a 1080p 2016 model so it's not that old, but I figured the TV died. I then plugged a spare TV in the living and I was shocked to see that it was doing the same thing. I thought to myself that it is impossible that the second tv is broken too. In the living room area, there are about 4 wall outlets. I plugged the TV into each outlet and the TV still exhibited the same power loop issue. However, when I plugged the TV in either my bedroom outlets or dining room area outlets, the TV did not have the power loop issue. It stayed on with no issues. Therefore, I suspect that the TV is not broken and there is an issue with the electricity on the outlets in my living room. What's strange is that I have other (non-TV) devices plugged into these outlets, and they work fine. Even a space heater works fine with the outlets. I literally unplugged everything connected to the living room outlets and tried plugging the TV again and it still had the power loop issue. I really don't understand why. What could it be?
