Tip & How-To about Televison & Video

How to repair a vizio tv that turns off at random

1.) Unplug everything from the TV [power, hdmi, av, and more]
2.) Because the Vizio holds power while unplugged you can reset it while its unplugged.
3.) hold power button on the tv down for about 60 seconds.
4.) plug the power only back in.
5.) turn tv on
6.) if it works then plug each component in one by one
7.) enjoy your tv
8.) start saving for a non vizio tv.

My Vizio VU37L HDMI ports not working. AV ports work. Heavy lightning storm last night, TV was off when I went to bed, on when I woke up.


If you send the board to us we may be able to fix it.

What you're looking for is having to replace the small SMD IC that the tracks from the HDMI ports lead to.

Sometimes that is all it takes, other times it needs more and just today I've had a case where we just couldn't do anything as the damage seem to have spread to the large processor.

(it wasn't on a Vizio board, it was on a Sanyo, but the concept is the same)

50" Vizio Plasma reads "No Signal" on all inputs?


Well, your TV is still under warranty. That's the good part.
The only thing I can recommend without voiding the warranty is leaving the TV unplugged for 30min. That way, the TV can reset itself and hopefully correct the problem.

If that doesn't solve the problem, it's time to use the VIZIO warranty.
Here's contact info if you need it.

Vizio L32 32 in. HDTV LCD HDMI input not working


I recently had the same problem with my vizeo hdmi port # 1 going bad. Tried everything to fix and called vizeo. There solution for a master reset was turn off tv and unplug from the wall. then hold down the power button for 30 secs and let go. plug the tv back in and hold down the volume down and input select buttons down on side of the tv for 15 secs. release the buttons and turn the tv on after powering down all the components connectd to the tv. If this does not work they told me you need to have it sericed for a bad hdmi input. Hope this info helps anyone out there. It didn't work for me. Its a bummer cause the tv is well taken care of and only 18 months old. Best of luck to all others.
