Question about Vizio GV42L 42 in. LCD Television

Vizio 42'' HDTV flatscreen

My vizio tv is making a strange humming/buzzing noise that doesn't seem to be coming from the speakers. I run external speakers for regular sound so I know its not a speaker issue. The noise seems to be coming from the core of the TV and I can only imagine it has something to do with the picture itself... I don't know much about tv's but I do notice when its making a sound i've never heard before.

The TV usually hums when the backlight setting is too low. So turning it up should get rid of the problem. To do this please follow these instructions:

1. Turn the TV on.
2. Press the Menu button on the remote, located right below the channel changing button.
3. Press the down direction button, located at the middle of the remote. Press that button until the backlight is highlighted.
4. Press the right direction button until the backlight is at 100.
5. Press the OK button and then the Exit button until you get back to your picture.

My vizio is now making a annoying buzzing sound coming from the back of the flatscreen...and the tint of the picture is darker...what might this be?


Power supply is straining. Check for bulging caps on the power supply board. The AC cord will lead you to that board.

Loud buzzing noise on vizio tv


It sound like you may have sound processor problem which is part of the main board, I would also look at the 12vdc from power supply to make sure it is clean DC.

Vizio Speaker Making a Buzzing Noise


My 32" vizio I bought a week ago does the same things.

Buy an external sound system for the tv. Turn the speakers off in the TV menu. Hook the sound system up to the out speaker hookups on the tv.

You will not only have better found, you will fix the speaker buzz problem.
