SOURCE: I have a Vizio VW42LF TV that is 2 yrs old.

The TV processor could have some garbage in it do to a small power surge and if you leave your TV unplug for 40MIN., then that will reset it bad to normal, and if tuner still looks snowy and not getting channels, then the tuner, or main TV module needs replaced.

Is the HDMI port 2 work? Try to turn it off and turn it back on. If it is still not working then the HDMI ports have gone bad. You will need to replace the main board.

SOURCE: Vizio 37L suddenly stopped getting all digital channels

I had the same problem with my 42" vizio. Was working fine for about a year and a half, then a month after all stations went digital, I couldn't see any digital channels and it wouldn't scan for digital signals
This is a strange go around, but it worked for me. . Tried unplugging, pushing power button for two minutes... did everything the forums suggest, with no resolve. But, here's what DID work for me. Trust me, it sounds strange, but it continues to work (and, yes... it's not a permanent fix... the channels still go out once in a while, but I can always get them back now)
Use your Vizio remote control. Turn your TV on. Press the "input" button until you get to "RGB", which is what you would connect a computer to. Make sure no computer is connected, or it's at least off if it is connected. When you get to RGB, you'll see a message that says "No Signal". After about 5 seconds, the TV will enter a sleep mode and seem as if it has turned off (orange Vizio logo). Once it completes it's little sleep cycle and "clicks" off, wait a few seconds and hit the input button again. It'll go to the next menu item. Keep clicking input until you're back on "TV", and VUALA! The channels are back! 
I accidentally figured this out when trying to troubleshoot, but I'm glad I did. Didn't want to dishout $250 to get it fixed. Let us know if it works for you too!

No.You might not have a reliable service provider or you might just be in a area in which t.v. signals are hard and or impossilbe to recive.You might also have the cable box,or just cables,mixed up.Hope it helped.

Hdmi not supported


I have a Vizio E320VL - just hooked up the HDMI for the first time (4 years later) to work with my new comcast HD DTA. I'm getting "retrieving data" (with really weird audio sounds in the background) - then "not support." If I wait a few minutes, I can change the channel and get clips of video/audio with some intermittent gray snow and black screen - The longer I leave the TV on, the better this gets until its almost running fine 30 mins later.

Tv will not turn on


This sounds like it might be a main board issue. Depending on the television brand there are different replacements you can get at different prices. I would try unplugging the tv from the wall first then try plugging it back in while holding channel up/volume up on the tv as you are plugging it back into the wall. If this doesn't change anything it is most likely a problem with your main board.

Vizio vo47L 47" LCD. No


0ne of 3 has failed:
(in order of probability):

1. Backlight inverter
2. Power Supply
3. Backlight

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.

Thanks!@#$

Dark screen on a Vizio HD


i would need more information to give you a better response but based on what you are telling me the panel may have gone bad. this part is not worth replacing because it will cost you just as much if you purchase a new to tv.

We had a lightning storm last night. The tv was working after the storm and was left on all night . This morning all that was on was the VIZIO light on the front and it will go off and on with the remote....


Sadly, only testing of each component can suggest the extent of damage. Many years ago, lighting can in through the window of my living room, hit the TV, blew the knobs off the TV (that date's me), shot into the kitchen and shattered the kitchen counter top. What I want you to take from that is that the course of a power surge is a bit unpredictable. No one can guess how far it got until you find a lamp that works.
