    I have a 46 inch doing the same thing. When it first powers up, no DTV. Analog fine. All other inputs fine. Play a DVD and then the DTV tuner warms up and works.

    Have a Vizio VP50HDTV10A. DTV will not come one. Every once in a while I can get it to come on. However, it is rare.

I also have the same problem. Turning on yields no picture on HDTV tuner input, all other inputs work fine. Also, when I have no picture on HDTV tuner input, I am unable to switch to other inputs with the remote, I have to use the button on the side of the set. After a period of time, which varies from minutes to several hours, the HDTV tuner works fine.

I've had a Vizio L37 LCD HDTV for about 10 years. After about 5 years the HD tuner crapped out completely, but everything else worked fine. Found a tuner on ebay and installed it after watching a Youtube video. Wasn't too hard at all. Now the tuner is going again. (maybe they only last five years?). So for about $25 bucks you can find one on ebay.

Vizio VP50 HDTV: I connected an HD antenna for first time on the TV and when I switch to DTV the screen goes blank, remote inoperable. Only controls on side of TV work, but there is no way to do a scan...


I have the exact same problem. It may be the tuner board is bad. I did some research and it seems like this tv is junk. I saw a link that said call Vizio and they are aware of all it's problems and are willing to give a new tv free of charge. I called and they knew nothing about it, but did offer to fix it out of warranty for $285 all problems fixed out the door. Also, TV locks up on RGB input and can't switch inputs until I hooked a computer to the RGB input, then I was able to select a different input.
Please post if you found a solution to the DTV issue..

I have a Vizio 50 Plasma TV. Sound works but display is "noise".


It'll be the X or Y boards or maybe the power board, without checking the VA and VS voltages I can't tell.

I can find where to conect my antena cable on a Vizio p50hdm


Your TV is a monitor only. That means it does not have a tuner inside for an antenna. You may try a VCR for a tuner and hook up the antenna to that. Good Luck

Trys to power up makes Buzz, then nothing but light stays green.


those vizio plasma have a lot of problems, its still most likely the Ysus board, but it will have to be tested to know for sure. If you bought it at coctco you are in luck, if bought a couple of years ago they will give you a full refund. you can try replacing it yourself by checking shopjimmy.com or ebay

Vizio vp50HDTV10A Plasma Vidio and Audio on and off


Odd problem for this model.

If:

* you are certain the popping is coming from the speakers and
* the video and audio come back on after going out (without reset) then

the issue will be with the main board and will need to be replaced.

Call Vizio customer service, they extend warranties sometimes.

TV ranking


Hi. You could look up reviews. I personally usually never offer advice on choices, because what I like, may not be what you like..its a matter of personal preference. But in this particular case, I'd go for Panasonic. Why? Better features, better service, easier availability of parts, and better resolution.Plus some nice features. If this answers your question, PLEASE don't forget to rate as fixed. I'd really appreciate it. Enjoy your new tube!!!
