Question about Televison & Video
There are two possible problems here.
1. The cable that is connected to your t.v. has come undone or is loose enough that it isn't making a good connection or has a short in it.
Solution for this: Unplug the cable from both ends and reconnect, then check picture. If there is still no picture, replace cable. Check again. If the cable looks just like the audio cables, you can use one of them. If the problem still exists go to problem #2.
2. the video card on the screen is out (worse case senerio). On the back of the Vizo there are several ways to hook a device into your T.V. If it were me and I didn't want to replace the card, which is on board and costly, I would try to buy an adapter to get my viewing source (Cable, DVD, Satellite, etc) into a different input and then try that one. If no inputs work with the video then you don't have much choice, but to repair. I caution people with Plasmas to just replace it with a larger one, since the repairs will cost close to a new one and you will eventually replace it anyway. If it is an LCD, you might be ahead of the game by repairing it by a few hundred dollars and it will last a good while if you get a reputable repair shop. Check your warranty first and then move forward from there to see if the cost of repair is cheaper than replacement. (replacement is still likely to be cheaper).
