Question about V, Inc. VIZIO RP56 Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Vizio LCD HDTV

My vizio keeps on turning off by itself. The sound comes off and the image, as if I had turned it off myself. It turns off every 10 minutes or so, it will not last more than an hour on. The vizio sign turns white.

Sounds like the power board is overheating and shutting off to prevent burn out. Check with vizio and explain your problem. a lot of vizio parts have lifetime warranties so check with manufacturer. j

Just call a tech to see how much it cost to replace it. I would get the part myself though.. they tried to mark up my part when one of my TVs broke so I just bought the part myself.

Turned itself off. I turned it back on and the green power light blinks for awhile then blinks red for awhile.no picture or sound


Get rid of this TV. Had one and replaced the bulb and light engine many times. Just buy a Samsung or Vizio 50+ inch instead and be very happy. Those Panasonic projection TV's were terrible. You will find a 50 inch Vizio for around $500 bucks and it will blow your mind how great the picture looks.

No video, shuts off then back on


I checked Toshiba's website and found the manual for the set. The self restarting was indicitive of a lamp failure. The red light was solid while the green light blinked. It would then restart 8 times before both lights would then begin blinking.

Lamp indicator blinks red


There is a problem with the lamp or around it? When it turns Orange, the lamp is at or near the end of it's life & needs replacing. What does the temperature indicator show? Orange, Red or Red Flashing? If not, then there is probably accumulated dust around lamp area
