If this is a VO47LFHDTV20A TV set, the problem is most likely your LVDS(cable from the main board to the t-con)cable is faulty. When you turn the set on, do you have a red screen instead of the standard blue screen? Do you also have red tints on all images on all inputs? If this is the case, your LVDS cable is bad. If you are comfortable opening up your set, track down where the LVDS cable goes into the t-con board. Turn on the set, and wiggle the cable, if the red tinting goes away, you will need a LVDS cable, about $24 part.

Hello SuziCanevaro,

This may have been the sound of electrolytic capacitors exploding. I would not suggest plugging the set back in until you can have it checked by a qualified TV technician. If you are skilled in Electronics and would like to work on this yourself, you will need:

The schematic diagram, a multimeter, a signal generator, an oscilloscope, and an isolation transformer.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Just to add to the above post it can also be popped Ceramic fuses. Its worth a try. In most sets I fixed there are about 6 of them and cost you about 10$. Check the specs on the fuses and get the same ones. Pop the old ones out and the new ones in and see if it works.. If it doesn't you have to get a new PS board as WeListen2You has suggested.

I have had my 55" Vision for a year and a half. Today I was watching a movie and the picture went dark and audio stayed on. If I turned the TV off and then back on it would light up with no Vision logo...


Sounds like you have a backlight problem. To verify this, turn on the set and dim the lights in the room. Take a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen. If you see a faint picture, you either have a back inverter or a bad backlight bulb.

No tv sound. Dvd works alright. Have hdmi cable from theater sys. to tv. Cannot figure out how connect red,white or yellow cables.


By Visio "55 I'm presuming you mean the Vizio VF550XVT.

First you need an Audio Cable (Red/White RCA Connectors) and with everything turned off connect it to your TV where shown below.

The other end of the cable will then connect to the Aux In 2 of your Samsung HT-Z320 as shown below.

Once connected you can turn your Vizio & Samsung back on.

You then need to use the AUX button on your Samsung Remote Control to Select Aux 2.

And on your Vizio Remote Control follow the Instructions below.

Tv turns on but there is just a black screen and no audio. It is not even 2 years old. Please help.


Most likely you are on the wrong source chanell. look for an AV/TV button. keep changing that untill you get to the TV stations. If you have a set top box make sure it is turned on. Also the appropriate AV channel will be the one that the set top box is plugged into.

Cannot remove the 'store' settings from 55 inch vizio bought at costco today When i push the "OK" button on the remote it 'thinks' that I'm pushing the 'menu' button and gives me the 'menu'...


Unplug the set for 20 minutes then plug it back in and turn it on. You should see a setting that says HOME____STORE on the screen. Make sure you high-lite HOME. Then continue on.

Vizio lcd sreen fading out.


Well time will tell if this is a true solution but I experienced the same issue. Originally I was able to get the TV to work by turning it off and back on.

After some research I notice the the Vizio FAQ mentions a similar issue for which the solution is to unplug the unit for 3min.

After calling Vizio, they suggested that under the menu option Setup, Picture, Advanced Video Features, I should try turning off Advanced Adaptive Luma and Backlight Control.

Vizio 42 Plasma Pop


My 42 Inch Vizio experienced the pop of death out-of warranty. I bought mine at Sears and they sent a technician over within a day or so. It turned out to be in the power supply and they shipped a board right out. Total including parts and labor was $280. Although no expensive TV should die after less than 2-years, Sears seems to be able to deal with repair in the home without drama.
