If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

SOURCE: Ihave sound, but no picture.

There is a problem with the video logic board. You could take it to a repair shop or diagnose it yourself with a multi-meter looking for blown up capacitors/burnt parts.

Found a 42 inch Vizio flat screen with no cord...bought cord for power...when I hit power button the word Vizio appears in center of screen then shuts off 2 seconds later...can this be fixed?


it had no cord because it was no good
it probably could be fixed but the cost would exceed a new one which is probably what the original owners did

Hello, Currently I have Vaio laptop connected to my Vizio 42" inch flat screen TV. There's no audio coming from my Vizio TV. So I connected an audio cable connected to the stereo jack. Where do I connect...


You need a 1/8 in cord on both ends. Normally, its an 1/8 inch audio connection in your tv to work with PC (the same connection as when you plug it in your comp) So u would need a wire that both ends are 1/8 inch (Headphone jack sized)

If its uder warrenty its fixed even if its3-4 months out they SHOULD cover it!
IF not you need 2 new boards and another board.. cost on the y and z board I believe is 220 for y 220 for z 210 for power baord and 210 for them to come fix it 9--$ total
THATS FROM THEM my vizio is may 2006 vizio and thats their solution. They told me it might only be one or the three boards and the part number is 8004328542! They said I could buy it and see if it works where to get the part.. online I guess bc there is no way in H--- that I would pay 210 for the part from them.
A used vizio on ebay for a 42 inch is 450 plus shipping so why waste my time!
If you want to talk to them here is their number800 762 0796

No picture but has sound


With all the listed sets,itis most likely the y-drive(sus) board.The only problem is that this board usually fails when the horz.buffer ic's fail,which is usually part of the plasma display.This was a semi-common problem with this set.The best bet is to find a new set,since the parts alone will exceed the cost of a new one.Pioneer or nec seem to be the most reliable that i have seen.
