I had a similar issue. Realized that the TV's "WIDE" setting was changed from "Wide" to "Panaramic". It was this panaramic setting that was causing the distortion on both sides of the screen. I had to switch it back to "Wide" using the "Wide" button on the remote to toggle back to "Wide" setting. Once I put it back to "Wide", problem went away. Hope this helps.

Youtube on my vizio 470i tv is off centered


CHANGING THE SCREEN ASPECT RATIO: ( From Manual )
The TV can display images in four different modes: Wide, Zoom, Panoramic, and Normal. Each mode displays the picture differently. To change the screen aspect ratio:
1. Press the MENU button on the remote.
2. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight the Wide icon. Press OK.
3. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight your desired screen mode and press OK:
• Normal preserves the content's original aspect ratio. Since the 4:3 aspect ratio is not large enough to fill the TV's screen, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image.
• Wide stretches a 4:3 aspect ratio picture to the edges of the screen. Since the picture is being stretched, the display image may appear distorted. If the program is already formatted for widescreen viewing (1.85:1 or 2.35:1), then black bars will appear on the top and bottom of the display image.
• Zoom expands images with black bars to fit the screen.
• Panoramic expands the display image to fill the screen.
images may appear wider than intended.
If you are watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display image. This option is only available when the TV is displaying a 480i/480p source.

Distorted Image smart vizio tv 32 inch


It sounds that the T'Con board has failed. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electric shock. Instead, contact any experienced service technician, or the nearest service center.

  • Turn on your VIZIO HDTV. Press the orange button with the "VIZIO" logo, which looks like a letter "V" with a triangular wedge in the center. If there is no VIZIO logo button, press the "Menu" button. Press the "Right Arrow" button twice to highlight the "Setup" icon, which looks like a wrench.

    Press the "Down Arrow" button three times to highlight the "Wide" menu item. Press the "Left Arrow" or "Right Arrow" buttons repeatedly until the correct aspect ratio is selected. "Normal" is for a standard definition 480i signal, which has a 3:4 aspect ratio. "Wide" is for high definition signals, and has a 16:9 aspect ratio. "Panoramic" stretches the outside of the image while keeping the center at the normal aspect ratio. "Zoom" enlarges the image on the screen. Press the "Last" button twice to close the VIZIO on-screen menu.

    Watch the image on the screen of your VIZIO HDTV to ensure that the picture is at the right aspect ratio. If it still looks distorted, it's most likely because you chose the wrong aspect ratio setting, because your source device is set incorrectly or because you used the wrong connection method.

    Vizio 32'' VO320E Image Distortion


    Hi,

    I hope not but:
    this is probably a failure from the screen or the electronic parts that control the videosignals.
    i think having a specialist or the tecnical service from vizio taking a look at it will be best and safest.


    Hope this is helpful, and greetings,

    Olivier.

    My Toshuiba 46RV530U tv has developed an image


    Sounds like you need to try reseating the lvds cables on the t-con board.This board is located at the top of the set in the center.You will have to remove the metal shield covering the board.Then you will see to flat cables connected to the board,one for each side of the screen.carefully unlock the connectors and remove and replace the cables.If this does not work you will need a new t-con board.I'm not sure about this particular model but sometimes the t-con board is only available as part of the lcd panel assembly.Good luck!

    Vizio VX32L HDTV that has gone Predator on me


    Hi ryubaum I am Vortash from what I can see your not on your own with this problem it seems a number of people are having the same fault with various models .. here in the uk we attend regular updates from companies that inform us of stock faults ... that's faults that are most likely to appear on certain models over time ,and how to repair them .. unfortunately I am in the uk and have not worked on the us export versions of these sets and there would possibly be a difference in the stock fault reasons . All I can tell you for sure is that the problem lies in either your chroma section of the set or the main system control module ( the IC that responds to your settings commands from the Remote )
    I have had similar problems with other sets of corruption of the processor and all it needs is resetting , but as for cost, here it would be approx £ 65 70 £80 that's about $ 160 at the most providing it is not an actual LCD fault hope this is of help Regards Vortash
