It sounds to me like it's stuck in service mode.There is a button combination with the remote to return it to normal. I would call Vizio support and they should be able to help you.

I think it's a combination like [volume -], [channel -] and power but I could be wrong.

The tv will not come on . The power led is blinking 3 greens and then 2 reds. I have changed the light but still can not get the tv to do anything. I can't even shut the power off with the buttons.


Most likely its not the lamp thats bad but the color wheel is stuck. Check if the color wheel starts or not. You can make this out from the typical dlp switching on whine. If you have already changed the lamp, and there is no color wheel start noise, you have a bad color wheel.

Picture is pale, yet reds are bright. checked color, brightness, and conversion settings. TV seems unresponsive to the color, tint, and brightness adjustments.

TV makes humming noise, lamp light is blinking, does not turn on


Your color wheel needs to be changed. Mine just did the same thing. I changed mine, and the buzzing sound went away, however now my picture washes out with light or yellow colors. The darks look green and purple also.

My phillips model 60pp920217f has a horrible picture...no green to the color


The green CRT coolant has congealed thats whats giving you the green halos. Change the coolant in the green and blue and your set will be fine. red is never affected so the red coolant should be fine.
