Question about Vizio Gallevia GV42LF 42 in. LCD Television

3 Answers

Vizio gallevia no picture

Once you turn on the power there's no picture nor sound but there's light from inside the TV. The TV just won't respond to the control . The manual control buttons on the side works for the menu but still you cannot adjust it from there .

I EMAILED VIZIO ABOUT MY PROBLEM. THEY RESPONDED IN 3 DAYS. THE TECH AND I THEN TRADED A COUPLE OF EMAILS. HE CONFIRMED THE INFO ABOUT THE TV WITH ME. HE EMAILED ME THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM AND PART NUMBER. IT WAS THE MAIN BOARD. I ORDERED THE PART AT VIZPARTS.COM FOR ABOUT 180.00. INSTALLED IT MYSELF AND THE TV WORKS FINE. I WISH IT HAD BEEN UNDER WARRANTY BUT IT WAS 18 MONTHS OLD AND THE WARRANTY WAS FOR 12 MONTHS.

I'm now running my fourth main board, including the original in a five year-old Gallevia. The replacements are reconditioned modules that are failing after only a few weeks to a few months in service. I've purchased two and exchanged one. They have to know they have a problem. My tech guy says he sees it all the time.

... the CPU on the main board is not initializing properly do to a known VIZIO power supply problem. If it is out of warrenty it's out of pocket repair. I am in the same boat. Sounds like a class action suite for Vizio soon or later because all their models have similar issues and their support is unresponsive. THE FIX SHOULD BE A RECALL FOR DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS *FOR FREE* This will teach them to sale half baked products in the US below competition. Best thing is to buy a Sony for no headaches, nothing Vizio!

I have sound, but no picture. No previous signs of malfunction. What could be wrong?


Did you check trouble shooting section in manual? Is your TV hooked up to a home theater system? Then check power source to TV. If ok , then I would suspect the lamp blew out.

Most plasma TV's have secoundary power boards, witch can be the cause, now I would try if I where you is to unplug it and let it set a hour or two, if that did not work then the tv will need to be looked at locally. The cause can be a bad power board inside the TV witch is a major cause why a Tv would have a power light put no function at all.

Hope this helps if you have any questions as to what parts to buy www.partstore.com is a best resource.

Just try to reset so picture will back to normal again, some LCD TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

3. Press and hold the LCD TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the LCD TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.

I CAN TURN THE POWER ON. THE SCREEN STAYS BLACK.


This TV has 2 main circuit boards (2 LCD backlight controlers): the Power Supply board may have fried the video board on it's way out ...
You can either arange to have the TV replaced under warenty if not have it serviced. In any case best of luck with Vizio support line.

Everyone bought this TV because it was so cheap... now we find out why: Vizio cuts corners on everything from engineering to support!! All brands are not created equal. Sometimes you get what you pay for.
