Sets with PIP use two tuners--one for main and one for PIP---likely the main got hit with the static discharge during the storm----Here we always disconnect both power and cable when a storm.

There is a way around this (will lose PIP) with a cable box connected to the audio and video inputs on rear of set---bypass the tuners and use the box to change channels and provide signal.

let me know if questions.

TV has no picture, no sound just the VIZIO logo light is on the screen.


Did you check out the power supply for proper operation since both the audio and video are gone? If PS is good then the problem may very well be on main board.

Vizio tv sv420m need help


Sure that the other boards you used were any good? If so, then try the Power supply board since the other boards of your set other than the main board specialize in the video aspects. Since you have no audio the only two boards that could account for no audio are the main board and the PS board which powers everything in the set.

Sound but no picture


After replacing the main board, a software update will be necessary in most cases. Check it.

No picture on coby tv


I'm not certain but it sounds like there is a loose video cable in there...if you are able to, take the tv apart, and literally push on all of the connectors and cables to make sure they are not loose. The main video cable may not seem to be loose, but once it is making contact again, it should clear that mess up. Just look for cables running to the main screen and pull them off and put them back. Then put the tv back together again and see if it worked...it usually does. why does this happen? Some blame it on dust, others blame it on quick manufacturing processes...whatever the case, the cables become slightly seperated from the controller board and that happens...it also happens to computer monitors too...Good luck and take your time. If there are a lot of screws and things either take pictures of where they all went or write it down. I like to make a diagram on a piece of paper and tape the screws on the diagram to show where they went.

Have a vizio vx 42l on the bench. amber light only no power up have my standby 5vdc and my 3.3vdc power button is sending a high pulse to the main mod but i dont get pson to the power supply mod suspect...


This is your mainboard needing replaced! Simple as that!

The main sends the pson signal and without it...you have a dead tv.


Please rate if this helped :)

PSP Slim, picture problems


If he bought it from best buy, ask for a two year reeplacment plan. after that, you tell them what happend to your psp. by the way, the replacment plan is only $29.99. They will either try to fix it, or they will give you a new psp, the same exact type as you said psp slim, for free. But heres a catch. after you use the replacment plan once, you may not be able to use it again. good luck. P.S. what happend to your nephew, is what happend to me.

Dear schmex,
It sounds like you have a broken LCD screen this shouldn't effect the image quality, but it might get worse over time and it will probably make it more difficult to compose the picture.
