SOURCE: vizio plasma tv turned off..won;t turn back on

This sounds like the main power board went bad. If this is still under warranty, contact 1-877-MYVIZIO and they will have it repaired for you. if not, let me know and I will guide you to the right part.

SOURCE: Pink Screen on Vizio 37 inch with HDMI Connection

I work as a contract technician for Vizio, and I can tell you from experience that replacing motherboard is one of the only solutions to this problem. The other solution if under warranty is to replace it. If you experience red, blue, or green pixels where dark shades (like nose, eyes, clothes, etc), call Vizio and accept nothing less than a full replacement! I have had situations where I replaced motherboard and within 2-3 hours the pixels return. Hope this helps.

My ill dads Vizio VO320E showed classic symptoms of lightening damage so we purchased a new main board. Now the screen lights up but is showing pink and yellow horizontal stripes and some vertical sha

Mr. John either one of two things from start u have done right this is a common thing on flat sets hooked to Direct boxes by HDMI having surges come from box to set. The main board usually needs replacing, so either u received a bad board or u have multiple issues and possibly the T-CON board got surged from main board. This board is located above main and power in center at very top of screen. This will cause symptom that u are describing. Hope this helps.

Black screen with sound

My 47" LCD Smart T.V. was working fine last night. I got up this morning and I have sound but no picture. The VIZIO icon lights up as usual but I get no picture, only sound. From the time I turned it on, nothing appeared on the screen. I have already tried unplugging it for a while and still nothing.

My Vizio 37' flat Screen TV Closed Caption wont turn off

If you have a digital cable box, turn off the box but leave the TV on. Hit the "Menu" button on the front of your cable box and a setup menu should come on. Use the cursor buttons on your box's front panel to go down to the "Captions" option, which is probably set to "Enabled" and hit the right or left cursor button to change it to "Disabled." That should solve your problem.
