The volume was up on the TV, but down on the cable box remote. By raising both volumes the sound quality improved dramatically.

Sounds like a surge to me. Why not give Vizo call to see if anyone else is reporting the same problems. It's a fantastic tv.

My 42 inch lcd vizio tv flashes like a stobe lite after a minute of powering it on then goes black what can i do


That sounds like an inverter problem. Check the capacitors on the inverter boards. There will be two on each board. The master inverter will be on the far left side, and the slave will be on the far right side. You will have to remove the metal covers over the inverter boards. Should be 4 small phillips head screws. If the capacitors have bulging tops, replace them.

Volume will not stay the same on commercials or loud sounds like a gun shot tru volume is on


In the UK, there is talk of insisting the TV companies reduce the advert volume to the same level as programmes. There is a lift at present as it increases peoples awareness.

Just bought E420VL 42" LCD


Go into menu, sound set-up, and switch SRS to off. It's a vizio thing they came up with to act like "Smart Sound" where commercials won't be louder. It is total BS and does not work, it makes your normal sound fluctuate. Worked on all 3 of my Vizios. Hope it helps you.

Sound quality is terrible on my Crosley CR79 turntable. Sounds very tinny and terrible. Got a new needle and the problem still exists.


This could be an earth lead to the cartridge problem, or the cartridge itself. Check the connections.

I have a Vizio 42' and a cable box and there's a constant humming


I think I had the same problem. This is how I fixed it.

I have my vizio 42 hooked up to a Harmon Kardon surround sound, and the digital cable box. Essentially, I can adjust the volume 3 ways - through the tv, cable box or av receiver. The humming sound happens when you have the volume maxed out on the av receiver and not the cable box.

For example, the sound level on my Harmon Kardon goes from -10 (lowest) to 10 (loudest), with 0 being the middle ground. The buzzing was happening when the Harmon Kardon was set to 10, and I was using the cable box volume to adjust the sound. To fix it, I turned down the volume on my receiver to 0, which may be about 50% max volume of the receiver. Then, I switched devices and used the volume on my cable box. This got rid of the static I was getting. Hope that helps.
