Question about Vizio VF550M 55 in. LCD HDTV

Sound comes in strong and weak at different times

Most of the time my sound is not good. Then sometimes the sound comes in very good. Then it goes out again. Sounds like maybe only one speaker is working most of the time

It could be that or a loose wire to one side of the speakers in the set. If it does it often enough locate where the actual sound for each side of the set is located---when it does it get close and listen---if one side is low or distorted you know it is either a connection or speaker on that side OR since most sets have a left and right channel for sound--the issue is in one side.(circuit problem)

My red color is not coming in very good. i think i need to replace the bulb. how can i get a replacement bulb?


Hi Misty,
I would reset or zero out all the colour/ contrast settings first.
You can access all these via the menu on the remote.
If the reds still seem a bit weak, you can purchase new lamps on the internet. Depending on how old the TV is, a new LED flat screen might be the go. The picture difference from rear projection to LED panel is significant.
I would strongly suggest you do not replace the lamp yourself, there are dangerous voltages inside the TV cabinet.
Also, if one lamp is weak there is a good chance the others will fail soon. If it has done more than 5000 hours, time for a new TV.

Heater fires 3 times then quits, light on control board quits blinking then minutes later it tries again.


It sounds like a weak pilot generator. They wear out after a number of years. It is trying to fire which means the safety loop is all good. Sometimes the pilot generator is strong enough to keep the pilot valve open, but upon call for heat the main gas valve isn't getting enough voltage to open (and a good voltage output from the generator drops to nothing). It's not too hard of a diy

Power led light


You need not worry, it appears the LED light is a little faulty and your switch mode power supply is OK.
If you are worried then replace this LED.

Toyota Echo 2004, Intermittent problem, engine goes off while on road, we close the inition key an wait 10 seconds and it restart. Problem occurs around once a week an no fault code as been...


Sounds like a weak power cable somewhere... either a partly blown fusible link, or a bad connection that has grown over time to become the issue it is today....I do not know if, when the car stops, does the entire vehicle power goes out, meaning that there are no lights (idiot lights in the dash, service engine, check engine, etc).. If absolutely no lights are visible anywhere, then I would hazard a guess that there is an issue with the power cable coming off of the battery terminal, or alternator (generator) problem. I can't really give you more than that with out more information. for an example, is the "power off" issue, repeatable under the exact same circumstances? Can it be repeated every time you try to repeat it or is it something that is just happening when ever it feels like it?

If you have a strong spark at the coil and plugs are not then it sounds like plug wires. They can degrade over time.

Gas smell coming from oven during preheat. once oven is warmed up, smell goes away. I have a Frigidaire FGF366EBC S/N VF6289284.What would cause this?


Typically, all gas operated appliances will get a "gas smell" from time to time. What you're really smelling is the odorant (rotten egg smell) that is added into both propane and natural gas, as these gases have no smell by themselves.

The smell will vary from normal to very strong as the "receipe" for how much ordorant is added into either your propane tanks or the gas supplied to your home. Typically, when tanks start getting low, the smell is more concentrated, while with piped natural gas, the smell can be very strong at different times, based on how and when the gas company adds odorant into the main supply lines.

Usually when a gas appliance is first turned on, the smell can be rather strong, until the gas ignites. So long as your oven is lighting properly, there is nothing to worry about.

However, if you're hearing a rather loud "whoosh" sound as the oven lights, it could be that your ignitor is getting weak and might need to be replaced. If you've got a weak ignitor, it could be allowing a little bit too much gas to build up in the oven compartment before it lights, hence the reason you're smelling the gas.

You can check for a weak ignitor by simply watching the oven when you start it, if the gas lights quickly, once the ignitor is glowing brightly and you've heard the "click" of the gas valve opening (in the oven), then everything is fine.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Trooper will not excelerate. it only kicks in


the car will not accelerate, check distributor unit, wires, cap and rotor making sure they have clean contact between the pole. test coil making sure you have strong 12V. Check air mass flow sensor, this unit also connected to ECU unit and also control the shifting along with transmission rotation sensor, both work in sync with one another. Check fuel pump for proper pressure my disconnecting the fuel line from the fuel filter, cover the line with a pieces of clothes, using your thumb, apply it on top of the fuel line and have a friend turn engine over, make sure you have the fuel line pointing downward away from your face. feel the pressure of the fuel pump does get weak over time and loose some pressure. if changing replacing fuel pump good idea to also replace fuel pressure regulator. Check fluid in tran mission making sure it has proper oil level. being 1990 im sure it has over 100k, I would have the tranny flush and filter change with new oil. Its good idea to have tranny flush every 75-100k especially SUV. tranny pressure sensor may need replacing, sometime it get clogs up with wast particles from gasket and worn filter. Battery light come on one awhile, have your alternator check, weak or faulty alternator will also cause battery light to come on.

More than likely if TV comes on some times, it sounds like you have a power supply problem, more than likely weak cap's , relay circuit to micro.

Weak coffee


It sounds like you may have lost the sprayhead. It is under the brew basket (above the place where you put the basket with the filter and the coffee). Sometimes they get loose and you don't realize it and it can fall in the grounds and get tossed out after brewing.
