YES. Take it back. Also take your DVD and cables also. Have the store try the tv with their DVD and cables and see if you get the same problems. It it good, then try your cables. Or try your DVD with their cable. It's under warranty now so resolved it now. If you bought by credit card, that may have a brief warranty also.

Why is there a redish tint to picture


It's possible that you have one of the contrast or color settings set to the wrong setting. Take a look in your menus to find picture control, and mess around with a few of those.

Tv completeley went out , first the picture then sound. took it to a tv repair shop and the power board checks out ok can not find the problem so he is not chargeing me wants me to pick it up


Hi,
On the Vizio LCD TVs there are only two boards: Main board and power board.
There is also the screen. If they checked the power board then all that is left is the main board or screen. If the power light stills changes color when ther power button is pressed you may have a bad screen (costs more than the TV if even available)
If no lights come on the main board can be tried to see if it fixes it, the main board will cost $200-$400.
These screens go bad so I'll bet the shop did not want to try the main board as they can not return it after buying it
Buy a new set is my advice
Hope this helps
thanks

Vizio vx42l Tv will come on no pic, after about 60 sec color lines fade onto the screen, tv will not turn off, need to unplug


It sounds like you have shorted CRT neck board, and it you probably would be better off buying a new LCD.
