SOURCE: green screen vizio lcd

My 37" vizio I bought in Dec 2007 did this (green screen at start-up on all inputs). At first it went away by itself after you left the unit on for 15 minutes, but then 2 days later the whole thing DIED. Luckily Costco has a 90 day return policy on TVs.

Vizio tech support suggested this (before it died that is):
Please try to reset all setting and then to see if the problem is solved. 1. Press the Menu on your Remote Control;
2. choose Set up on the OSD;
3. then choose Reset All settings;
4. Press the Exit on your Remote Control to remove the OSD.

SOURCE: Vizio L32 32 in. HDTV LCD HDMI input not working

I have had my tv got blank a couple of times.. at the HDMI connection.  Seemed to be software.  I unplugged the HDMI and turned off and unplugged both devices (tv and dvd) then turned them back on.. problem solved.

SOURCE: vizio 42 hdtv lcd no power

lol , technicaly it's not possible to plug a USB PORT , into an RJ45 Phone Jack lol

But lets assume he did manage to do just that.

A. Land Lines in the united states phone system use -48 volts of electrical power.
B. USB ports that provide power to USB devices use +5 volts of electrical power.

What you have described to me would suggest to me that your USB port has been overloaded
by the input of a much higher voltage sourse ( the phone line )


Some suggested steps

1. completely unplug the computers power cable for approximately 15 seconds.
2. plug the computer back up and press the power button.


If this fails you may now have a defective motherboard or a blown power supply.


You have some options at this point.


You can change the power supply and see if that solves the issue
If a new power supply does not solve the issue
you will need to change the motherboard.

My advice on changing the motherboard is that you replace ONLY the motherboard first.

If more things like the Memory or CPU are dammaged , you will then replace them as needed.

I feel very dissapointed that your son was unable to accomplish his computer hacking goals lol
perhaps when he is older he will make a fine Engineer.


Thank you for using FixYa!

Problem with Vizio SV421XVT


I am also having the same symptoms for my SV421XVT. TV works great except all HDMI ports are not receiving signal. Devices work through the AV Ports, and TV reception is fine. New Roku box is also not working through HDMI but works with AV. Wish I had a solution to this.


On a another forum for another TV it was suggested that boards need to be replaced. I hope I can get these boards for a reasonable cost.

Where do to plug in the cord to connect the tv to the DVD player?


Hello

You have several options for connecting your DVD player to your GV42L FHDTV10A - HDMI,

Component, S-Video and Composite (AV) inputs. Based on your home theater configuration, you can
decide which option is the right one for you.
connected to the HDMI input of the VIZIO GV42L FHDTV10A for optimal results.

To maintain the display quality, use a VIZIO certified HDMI cable available up to 10 meters or less.

1. Turn off the power to the LCD HDTV and DVD player.

2. Connect a HDMI cable to the HDMI output of your DVD player and the other end to the HDMI

Input (white color area) at the rear of the LCD HDTV.

3. Turn on the power to the LCD HDTV and your DVD player.

4. Select HDMI using the INPUT button on the remote or side of the LCD HDTV, or directly by
pressing the HDMI button on the Remote Control.

a) If you are already using the HDMI 1 input for another component, or you do not want to use

the HDMI 1 input for the DVD player, you can connect the DVD player to the HDMI 2

connection.

b) Refer to your DVD player user manual for more information about the video output
requirements of the product.
OK
