Question about Televison & Video
I have a Vizio 47" LCD, and I was watching tv and changed the channel and the screen went dark red. there's sound, i checked all the cables, but i have no picture. any ideas?
Looks your power supply quit. Get a new one from vizioparts.com might cost a buck and a half,plus an hour of labor, but 52"? deffinetly worth it! Vizio is good on parts. Make sure, have your serial# ready. some sets have been modified within a year, might get a wrong part without ser#.

SOURCE: vizio vo47L 47" LCD. No
0ne of 3 has failed:
(in order of probability):
1. Backlight inverter
2. Power Supply
More specifically on #1 and #2 - capacitors either bulging, leaking, or exploded.
Please seek the expertise of an experienced TV repair technician - as they contain potentially lethal voltages that must be properly discharged before work can begin.

What cable is being used? Often times there is a few things that could effect the picture and causing flicker. If you are using an HDMI cable, or the hdmi plug on the box or tv, you could have that problem. Because the picture is digital, you don't get the snow and lines we were used to. Because the cables are so stuff, often over time they can stress and pull on the plug and cable. Try a new cable, if that does not work, try another hdmi input on the tv. If that fails then try a new cable, like a component cable or RCA. If none of these work and you still have this issue with the box then most likely it is the tv or the box. Swap out a new source, and start this process all over again. If you get the same result then it is the tv. If it works with the same cables, then it is your box. Att will send you a new box if that is the case. If it is the tv, call Vizio. Warranty or not call them. If you are sure you are out of warranty, play dumb, be vague but nice. Often you can get someone out there still at no cost.
