Vizio VO37LF - Switching to channel 43-1 turns off TV

I have a new VO37LF Vizio. I was on the phone with Vizio tech support today trying to get PIP to work. I got that to work.HOWEVER, now when I go to channel 43-1 over my antenna, it shuts off the TV. This happens with no other channel and it did not happen before. I have done all the "resets" and I have unplugged the unit and held in the power button on the TV (supposedly that does a capacitor clear. I still have the problem. Spent 45 minutes oon the phone with the tech and he has no idea.

It sound like the mainboard has a problem. Replace the mainboard will fix it.

SOURCE: no picture or sound, light comes on in the front and have to unplug tv to turn it off.

I see a couple sizes for the fuses. Did you use the 5x20mm or the 3.6x10mm fuses? the 5x20 have fuse holders which would be easier to solder on.

SOURCE: VIZIO TV Black screen. Cannot turn off TV without unplugging.

I had a similar problem after having a Vizio for 2 and a half years. I left the room for a minute, i came back and the screen went black. I didnt hear an arcing sound though. There was still power to the unit and you could see that the back light was working, just no picture, no sound, and you couldn't use any of the buttons. The only way to turn it off was to unplug it. It would then start up, with the Vizio logo going from orange to white, and then do the same thing all over, no pic or sound. I would check the ceramic fuse first on the board that gets power from the plug.

HOW I FIXED MINE: I ordered a new "main PCB" from tigerdirectparts.com (you can also use searspartsdirect.com). This is the circuit board with all of the inputs on it (hdmi, cable, etc.) I opened it up, disconnected the old one, put in a new one and now it works fine.I used both serial numbers on the board to search for it online. It cost me $144 to do it, but that's better than $450 for a new TV. My tv is the vx32l hdtv10a. I hope that helps.

SOURCE: How to reset tv. Have sound but black screen

LCD's use a colorful crystal see through display which only visible when light is shining through it. if you have sound and no picture it's always a faulty PSU. Very easy to change out actually.

How to work pip in vizio tv


PIP or picture in picture works in two ways with the original remote--new sets with this actually have two tuners in them, one for main picture and one for PIP picture, you can change channels in both, swap the PIP to the main picture or even have both side by side.

Sure its got the PIP? what is brand and model number ?

Vizio vo37l backlight rapidly flickers when dynamic contrast tries to dim the display


I agree that the problem is most likely on the inverter board. I repaired a Vizio 42" LCD with the same problem, it was bad capacitors on both inverters. Cost $2 to repair. Take off the back cover to the set and check the capacitors on both boards. If they have bulging tops, that's your problem.

The picture on our Vizio V0370M periodically gets darker, then after a while will lighten up.


If this is a brand new TV you may have a bad video card. The other, easier but pain in the but thing is you could be switching from a HD channel to a non HD channel. You will notice a difference. Last if you have an light sensor on the TV (adjusts to surrounding light) that could be tripping but you should have an option to turn that off.

I want to load my tv code from my vizio on my remote for my 321


I used 0178 to program my universal remote. You can also try 10056, 10178,10864,10885,11756,10056,11758, and 11499. Then you can try by dropping the "1" from the front of these codes.
Most good remotes have a programming function if this does not work, where the remote will "learn" the proper code.
The actual button remote codes are as follows:
0 00117
1 00121
2 00119
3 00123
4 00116
5 00120
6 00118
7 00122
8 00245
9 00249

Vizio remote


The remotes for the TV and Direct TV box are universal remotes that can operate very basic functions for whatever else they are programmed to control. If you can program the TVs remote to operate the Direct TV box it will basically only control power and channel. Maybe something else, but not much. The same goes for the Direct TV remote. It will control basic functions on the TV; power, channel & volume. Best bet would be to purchase a universal remote that can learn functions from the original or just keep both remotes available by the TV.

PIP (Picture In Picture) - Your television should have the capability because it has two built in tuners. It can show two channels at the same time or show one channel and one video source (whatever is connected to the audio/video inputs). However, because you are using DTV (Direct TV) you are very limited because you are not using the built in tuners on your television. You should be able to see one picture from the DTV channel and one from lets say your DVD player. If your DTV box has two tuners built in then you should have the PIP capabilities from your DTV and not your television. I'm guessing your DTV is a single tuner (one satellite cable to your box). If you want to watch two different channels you'll need to either upgrade your box or attach another box to your television.

Option: you could also connect an antenna to your television this way you can use the PIP function. Obviously you'll only be able to view whatever local stations you can get with the antenna. Depending on where you live you might or might not have a lot of channels to choose from.

Pip and pop


It sounds like your other TV had 2 tuners which allowed you to watch 2 programs at the same time. You can still watch two programs, but the second one will have to come from a second source. See below for the possible combinations that the PIP/POP feature can be used by this TV.
