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).

I have a vizio vx37l was working just fine, went to turn it on and will not come on now. The vizio is orange touch the power button it turns white then back to orange .


That sounds like one of the shutdown circuits of the tv is activating. Most likely would need a tech to repair for you. You could try to power cycle the tv to see if that helps, just unplug the power cord of the tv, wait a few seconds then plug it back in and try to turn the tv on. Would be similar to rebooting a computer.

Hello Roger,
Sorry to hear you are having tv problems. This problem is caused by deflection circuit failure. That's the part that makes the electron beam sweep across and fill the screen. Depending on the size of the TV, you may find it better to buy new. A new board will not be available for a set that old. You may find a local shop that has the know how to repair Deflection Brds.

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? if you heart clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the ballast that's the board that powers the lamp.Do you hear buzzing,whirling,or high pitch sounds?If you do it could be the color wheel which is a little disc looking that when the light of the lamp goes through it creates the colors on the tv.This are the most common failures on samsungs.

Hitachi 46ex3b/4k turns on,sound, no picture black screen!


First check for a faulty capacitor on the power supply board as it sounds like that could be the first place to start. Before you touch any capacitors PLEASE find articles on the internet concerning discharging them as one stray discharge incorrectly could not only destry your tv but hurt you or even KILL!!! Ignore any articles that tell you to use a screwdriver. Good luck.
