Tip & How-To about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

Vizio Factory Menu

Vizio Tv's have an extra menu that contains factory settings which you can change or fix should you have a problem with your TV. Here's how to access the menu: 1. Hold down the CH+ (Channel Up) and the CH- (Channel Down) buttons on the TV. 2. While holding these buttons press the power button on the TV. 3. After the TV comes on, let go of the buttons, and enter the TV menu as usual. 4. You should now see a "F" in the lower right hand corner of the menu. (If not please repeat steps 1-3) 5. Hold down the menu button on your remote and the Factory Settings menu should appear. From this point you can tweak whatever settings you wish. *CAUTION* - Make sure that before you do anything you write down the settings before you change them. I have seen it mentioned that certain settings never be adjusted. Please search the internet regarding your problem before you do anything. A good resource is www.avsforum.com

My Vizio TV tells me, when I press the menu button, that it's unable to launch com.yahoo.widgets.tv.container. It worked fine last night.

Funny, same thing happened to me about the same time! Took me a while to figure out how to fix it. You have to get to the HDTV Settings menu and hit the Help icon. Do a Clear Memory/(Factory Default) and go thru that process, basically you go through all the settings just as you did the first time you powered up the TV. This will fix your problem.

The challnge is...how to get to the HDTV Settings menu when your VIA button only brings up the error you described? I finally got there like this: Hit the "Input" button on the remote, navigate to "TV" and hit OK (basically just select TV as your input), hit the Menu button on the remote and that will bring up the HDTV Settings menu and then proceed as above

Vizio service menu

I found this on another answer board. I've only worked on a couple of these sets (whole board replacement in both cases) so I don't know if this is going to work. But it couldn't hoit!

1. Turn The TV off.
2. Press and hold CH + and CH - buttons on the TV simultaneously.
3. Press and release the POWER button on the TV, then release the CH + and CH - buttons.
4. Press MENU button on the remote. The regular menu comes up, and the set displays an "F" (for "factory") in the bottom right corner of the menu.
5. Press and hold the MENU button for few seconds and the Service Menu will be displayed.

There wasn't any mention of how to exit service mode. Hope this works for you!

(Didn't you just love changing coolant on Magnavox PTVs?)
