I had the same problem. Go to INPUT and change the screen to DTV. You will see it in the top left hand corner. If you have cable or an antenna, you will see the channels

Your problem is in the signal board. The signal board is the one with all the RCA jacks and RF connections. It is difficult to pull out a component on the board without damaging the pc trace. I suggest you replace the signal board. The price of this board is reasonable. Thanks for asking me!

This kind of symptoms is an indication of fault mostly in the power supply board. The popped sound was came from a blown electrolytic capacitor on that board. If your unit is not under warranty period, open the back cover and check this part. Blown electrolytic capacitor has a physical indication of fault like bulged/dome at the top and can be easily identify by visual inspection. If you've found it, replace it with same capacitance and working voltage that is printed on its body itself. Watch the video below for more info regarding electrolytic capacitor.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

It might be,

Audio is usually on a separate power source from the rest of the TV and what I'd do if I were you would be checking the power output on the power board for the amplifier.

It may be something as simple as a blown fuse (and nothing else!) or, more likely, bad capacitor or (again more likely since you said it happened soon after you bought it) blown fuse because of a shorted component somewhere in the amplifier.

Hi please find above a service manual.

Colin, look the most inexpensive way for you to repair your unit is this, and i say this from 35 years of experience in the field and i have my own repair shop... and that is to engage a professional. it is as simple as that.

The "Fault" you indicate is most likely involving both the switchmode power supply, and the screen engine. Either of these requires a deal of knowledge of these units, and requires special equipment to be able to undertake a task like this.

To get the best possible outcome, please, do the following.

Contact either a local or head office of you sets manufacturer, Vizo, now ask them for a referral to an authorized service center. Now when in contact with them, FIRST only ask for a "Quote" as to the costings and the work actually required to be done to repair the unit.

Now when you are armed with all this knowledge THEN you can make an informed decision as to what to do, repair or replace.

Now I say this, as these days I find, more and more customers and clients prefer to put any monies that would have been spent on a repair, towards a NEW unit, with a FULL warranty.

This is further backed up, by some new long term research done by a major Swedish electronics manufacturer, that ANY unit that has been repaired will FAIL AGAIN, no matter what, within 12 - 18 months later, (Maybe less). So???

So you see with all this in mind, one really has to put a lot of thought into what to do.. It is NOT simple as in "The old days" no, now it is all changed, as electronics evolves.
