Vizio 42" LCD Screen (VW42L FHDTV10A) Screen is cracked

I have a Vizio 42" LCD HDTV (VW42L FHDTV10A) and the Screen is cracked. This TV is only 4 months old. I am trying to find a replacement screen for this TV, Vizio will sell you any component except the screen!!!

Can anyone direct me to a company that can and will sell me a new screen.

Thank you.Dennis

    We hit the screen with a Wii remote, and I have tried for a year to get replaced. Only one offer from Vizio to ship one from overseas for $1500.00!! Looks like we were cracked for buying Vizio.

Same S*#@ here, a little kids plastic pellet was the cause of my 42 inch, wall mounted and much loved Vizio.
I guess the best bet would be finding a broken one with a good screen and cannibalizing it for parts.
That is my plan at least.
Ps: Why can't they put some protective clear coat over it such as plasma have. Anyone have an answer: VIzio?

SOURCE: Vizio 42 in TV LCD HDTV white line across to of

That white line (usually jagged) is actuallly part of the transmitted picture. However, you are not intended to see it because it is located in what is known as the 5% overscan area. Your TVs today are more than just cable ready... they are a versital, technology filled multimedia display. You can see that line because the screen size or wide mode you are using is intended for 1080p/24 signals. You have 0% overscan with this screen size setting. This allows you to see ALL of the picture, including portions of the picture the broadcaster did not intend for you to see. You can change your screen size using the Wide feature in the Setup menu. See pg.62 of your user manual for details and descriptions of the various wide modes.

It can be the unstable power supply due to bad DC filter caps, bad T-CON boards, main board.
I would inspect the power supply first for caps with domed tops.

VIZIO GALLEVIA modle VIZIO GV47L FHDTV10A


Most plasma TV's have secoundary power boards, witch can be the cause, now I would try if I where you is to unplug it and let it set a hour or two, if that did not work then the tv will need to be looked at locally. The cause can be a bad power board inside the TV witch is a major cause why a Tv would have a power light put no function at all.

Hope this helps if you have any questions as to what parts to buy www.partstore.com is a best resource.

Where do to plug in the cord to connect the tv to the DVD player?


Hello

You have several options for connecting your DVD player to your GV42L FHDTV10A - HDMI,

Component, S-Video and Composite (AV) inputs. Based on your home theater configuration, you can
decide which option is the right one for you.
connected to the HDMI input of the VIZIO GV42L FHDTV10A for optimal results.

To maintain the display quality, use a VIZIO certified HDMI cable available up to 10 meters or less.

1. Turn off the power to the LCD HDTV and DVD player.

2. Connect a HDMI cable to the HDMI output of your DVD player and the other end to the HDMI

Input (white color area) at the rear of the LCD HDTV.

3. Turn on the power to the LCD HDTV and your DVD player.

4. Select HDMI using the INPUT button on the remote or side of the LCD HDTV, or directly by
pressing the HDMI button on the Remote Control.

a) If you are already using the HDMI 1 input for another component, or you do not want to use

the HDMI 1 input for the DVD player, you can connect the DVD player to the HDMI 2

connection.

b) Refer to your DVD player user manual for more information about the video output
requirements of the product.
OK

If the backlights for the screen do come on and you also have 12v and 5v feed the main board then it does sound like the mainboard will need to be replaced.
