Vizio L42HDTV10A sound problems

I have a Vizio L42HDTV10A that has a very muffled sound when the Bass control is turned up past 90. Turning the bass down cures the problem but then it sounds like a tin can. Any suggestions? Does it on my wireless headset also, so I would think it's not the speakers..

Re: Vizio L42HDTV10A sound problems

In my case, turning the surround sound OFF is what fixed the problem. The bass contibutes most to the perception of the location of a sound. If surround is ON without surround speakers connected, the internal TV speakers can only take the place of what would be the front speakers in a surround system. So turn surround OFF and set your bass preference wherever you want it. That worked for me.

The l/s speaker has a terrible rattle when sound has a little bass..either something is loose or driver is making the noise.Can you remove the grille without taking the tv off the wall?

Hi, Sorry no you have to take the back off. And there are several screws. You can buy replacement speakers off E-bay. For about $10-20. Cheeper than part stores like Shop Jimmy or Encompass. Also note that the speakers in the tv are small, 2.75" in most of the Vizio sets. The 32" have 2" speakers.
So not realy made for bass,or to play loud.

Audio buzzing

Check the cables because this sound comes when the polarity of wires interreact with each other.

Vizio 42'' TV Sounds like it is in a metal tube.

The volume was up on the TV, but down on the cable box remote. By raising both volumes the sound quality improved dramatically.

Blue screen - no signal - turns off [visio tv L42hdtv10a]

With out turning on the T.V., Push the [Input] button on the remote control. The TV should turn on and activate the input menu, just continue to push [Input] until it is set on TV (or HDMI, etc.). this should solve your problem.

My tv is making a poping noise. I unpluged the set from the radio but the sound is coming from the speakers on the unit. What is it, and how can it be fixed. Thank you Bryce,

Turn down bass in audio menu or if tv has subwoofer turn down sub level or like i stated earlier turn down bass other than that popping noise is a common complaint with vizio, if under warranty call service provider

Problems with TV volume intermittent dropout

I fixed my problem by turning off the Bass Boost on the TV. Not sure if there is a problem with Bass Boost itself, but it sounds much better now.
