Popping noise from speakers/ No sound on Vizio P50HDTV10A

There is no sound coming from the speakers. Just a consistent popping sound. Tried various connections to no avail. Surround sound works fine so I know it is not the sattelite box.

    Have a 32 inch visio plasma. After first turning it on it has a continuous popping sound and no other audio. Sometimes the popping stops and the audio returns. I'm thinking this aint right.

    Recently starting hearing a popping/cracking noise on our 32" Visio.  We can still hear the TV audio, but popping noise is becoming more frequent.

    popping sound from surround sound kit....help!

    Suddenly a popping coming from speakers.

  • wgreen May 05, 2009

    I have no sound from the Vizio P50HDTV10A internal speakers so I ran audio out from the Vizio to my amp which works fine. You need to change the audio setup in the Vizio menu to send the sound to the audio out jacks. Anytime power is lost to the TV, the menu setup must be done again. It's a bum way to get the sound but it works okay.

    Now I can't get it to switch from TV into the DTV mode. I see the DTV letters on the tv but no vido/audio signal nor can I access the DTV menu. In the past, I had to turn the tv on and off to switch, but now it doen't work. Any help will be appreciated.

Don't replace anything, Vizio has issued a lifetime warranty for this set because of this problem. No joke, call the customer service line and tell them you got the pop of death. They'll send someone out to 'repair' the set free of charge. If they can't fix it they'll give you a new one. Even if your mfg purchase warranty has expired. Call them and post the results. I've been fixing TV's longer than I care to admit and this is the first time I've actually seen a company stand behind their products like this. I bought a broken tv with the intent of fixing it and after replacing almost every board I could only manage to get the vertical racing stripe line, except mine was purple. I put it all back together and called to find out if there was a recall on this set and within 5 minutes the (Actual English speaking) gentleman told me to sit tight and he'd have a repairman come and do his thing. He did, and long story short, he couldn't fix it. Last week they delivered a new TV to replace this one. I was shocked. I think Vizio will have all my future business.
Good luck.

What amplifier do i need to connect 4 speakers to my vizio P50HDTV10A TV


Check the back of your set there are 2 Audio RCA Jacks, You can't do it with an amplifier alone because that won't split the channels to 4. You have to go to a surround sound receiver.

The l/s speaker has a terrible rattle when sound has a little bass..either something is loose or driver is making the noise.Can you remove the grille without taking the tv off the wall?


Hi, Sorry no you have to take the back off. And there are several screws. You can buy replacement speakers off E-bay. For about $10-20. Cheeper than part stores like Shop Jimmy or Encompass. Also note that the speakers in the tv are small, 2.75" in most of the Vizio sets. The 32" have 2" speakers.
So not realy made for bass,or to play loud.

Short crackle sound emits from speaker during scene changes


Actually, it is a failing component. Quick scene changes often place demands on the power supply. I would guess that the noise is more prevelant when the scenes change from darker ones to lighter ones. Since this set is so new, request a warranty exchange. This set needs to be serviced. Return it to the place of purchase and ask for a replacement. Usually if the set is less than 30 days old, they just exchange it for you.

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.

Vizio 50


The popping noise is coming out from the speakers , because some electronic component is shorted like this Z board , it is important to you to know that you can spend less money fixing this one than buying a new one . be ready to spend between $300 to $700.00 in parts. if you choose to not fix
you always can recover your money . returning parts not used to the vendor and or selling your tv as it is.
Your rating to my answer is highly appreciate
thanks
