Visio LCD, Audio Mode Flat Only

32" Vizio LCD, 1080p. In the audio setup, I find the audio mode shows only "Flat" available. When I select audio mode to attempt to change it, at the bottom of the setup screen is a note "not available". I am unable to change to any of the other modes such as Rock, Jazz, etc. as listed in the manual. This is hooked up to our cable box via the 5-wire component cables. Thank you.

    This was solved thanks to great Vizio tech support people. When I turned off the SRS option in the audio menu, I could then change the audio modes. Thanks!

    Yes, turning off the SRS option allows you to change the audio mode, but the result of turning off SRS is horrible sound quality. It doesn't matter that you can now change the audio mode from Flat to Rock to Pop to.....they are just different forms of terrible at least on our Vizio FHDTV (VO32L). I'm still searching for ways to increase the distinctness of voices against the background music/noise.

SOURCE: TV turns off by itself

Most likely your power supply is damaged (blown capacitor), if it's under warranty it's a quick half hour onsite fix.

If you still have audio and video from component and RGB which means your sustainer boards (the boards on the two sides that powers up your screen) are working. All you have to do is replace the main board. you can buy parts at, or Make sure that you give them the correct model and serial number so they can send you the correct part.

How do I get the icons off the bottom of my screen? Also how do I get the Visio 60" logo off top left of screen?

It sounds like your TV is still in 'Demo' mode. There should be a menu option on the setup screen to set it back to 'home viewing' mode. Check the video and the channel setting menus.

Automatically search for TV channels
that are available in your area. Be

Visio flat screen wont work with basic cable Why?

Make absolutely sure that you've selected the right inputs and have them connected properly. Many times, even with people who know what they're doing, wires end up in the wrong places and settings can get messed up.
If it's not the wiring or setup, then it's possible that that particular input is fried or otherwise messed up.
