Question about Vizio L37 Television

Open Question

Brightness Jumps Up for 2-3 sec

After selecting channel 12, any channel i go to after this the brightness level is at maxium, then changes back to normal level after 2-3 sec. This happens on the "TV" setting, not "DTV" or "Digital HD". Any suggestions? I contacted tech support and they suggested the following:
Dear Vizio Customer,

1. Reset the TV:
1) Reset all settings:
a. Press the MENU button on your Remote Control, OSD displays;
b. Press button to display Setup page;
c. Press button to highlight Reset All settings;
d. Press button to start reset.
2) AC reset: Unplug the AC cord of TV for about 15 minutes and plug it back.
2. Please check if the buttons on the side of the panel work.
3. Rescan the channels:
Auto Search only functional in TV input, please press TV button on your remote control to ensure your TV is in TV input. And then rescan channels as follows:
a. Press MENU button, OSD(on screen display) displays.
b. Press button to display the TV page.
c. Press button to choose Cable or Air(Antenna) depending upon which equipment you have attached to the DTV / TV Input.
d. Press MENU button again.
e. Press button to highlight the Auto Search.
f. Press button to Auto Search for TV channels available. The TV will automatically search for analog and digital channels.
g. Wait for a while and don't press any button. When TV finish searching the channels, press EXIT to quit.

- i tried this, however after leaving the TV unplugged for 20 mins, the TV still contained the memory of my privious saved channels. so, i don't think what they suggested worked.

I had a similar problem and the way to solve this is to reset the set from the remote.  Set TV to standby and press Info, menu, mute then power.  The set should turn on with the service menu available scroll down until you select reset press right hand arrow next to enter and then enter.  TV will turn off.  When switched on it goes into Plug and Play mode to reset the analogue and digital tuner.  Allow a full reset then you should be ok.

I notice my lcd brightness has reduce now this is 2 years old this problem remains same on Dynamic picture mode as well i have check this by connect to a pc and to a DVD using HDMI port...


hi,
First of all check the back light setting of your tv. you can see it on the picture setting menu.
Just check when you adjust the back light setting, is there is any change. if it changes and still not attaining the needed brightness level, then you have to check the back light inverter and the CCfL( cold cathode fluorescent lamp) used as back light. if there is no change in the black light, then the logic board or the inverter have some problem.
you have to check the inverter first is it getting the correct voltage from the power supply normally 24v.
if the voltage is ok , then u can do only one thing replace the inverter board to check whether the lamb have any problem. in normal case the inverter will become faulty. lamp fault is rare.

check all these. If you need further assistance fell free to contact me through fixya.
ok
