Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

2 Answers

Both TiVo and Vizio remote aren't working right. Has to be TV.

I noticed the problem last night. I had been watching TV earlier that morning and everything was fine. I left my TV on for a few hours on accident and left the house and turned it off when I realized I had left it on.
I have a TiVo and I was flipping through channels on the guide and I just pushed the down button once and it kept going through hundreds of channels before it stopped. I thought it was just my remote, but when I used the Vizio remote the same thing happened. I turned my volume up one and it went all the way up to 100 before it stopped. If I turned it down, all the way down to 0. If I pressed mute, it would repeatedly turn the mute button on and off.
I figured it had to be the TV if both separate remotes were doing that. I'm not sure what the problem is. I tried it again this morning and it's doing the same thing. Even tried changing the remote batteries to see if that was the problem and it wasn't.
My TV is barely a year and a half old.
Has anyone heard of this problem? I'm not sure what is wrong with them? Or if it's the TV or just happens to be the same problem with both remotes.

Vizio Has a big issue with all models working with each other, if either you have another vizio product in your home or a close neighbor, the remote signal is probably reaching your TV,

Unplug TV set from the outlet, wait 30 seconds, plug it back in, select right input with your remote if you using cable box or Punch the channel that you want to watch if you have cable service connected directly to the TV.

I think you are looking at a power board problem. I had the same thing happen to a Vizio and I replaced the power board and it solved the problem. It could also be the input board but most likely the power board.

Thanks,

The main board is bad. I have seen a lot of TV has the same problem like you have. Replace main board will fix it. If you bought these TV from Costco and less than 2 years then they all still under warranty.

Directv Tivo recorder no remote programming code for Visio 37''


If it were a Tivo series 3 you might have better luck with it.

I've had my series 2 Tivo for about 2 1/2 years and never found the correct codes for it. I think it works off of a list of TVs manufactures about 3 years ago.
