Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

2 Answers

42" LCD HD TV keeps blowing fuses.

LCD HD TV blows a fuse every time we turn it on. We opened up the back and replaced the fuse.
Original fuse was T5.0A H/250V (ceramic fuse) We replaced it with non-ceramic fuses from Radio Shack. Does this matter? What else could be causing this problem?

A ceramic fuse stands up to heat better than a non-ceramic fuse. I'm no pro, but it sounds like your power inverter board maybe bad. There are replacements out there. Good luck

Disconnect the cable from the TV and see if that keeps the picture on longer. I had the same problem it was caused by my ground having a steady 30 Volts coming from a loose wire in my box.

My sony wega kf-50E200A tv keeps turning off. during each cycle the green light blinks 42 times and the tv comes on again for about 3 minutes and it happens all over again


More than likely the power supply is defective, but without testing and the repair manual that is just a guess, you make the decision to replace or repair the TV.

I have sound but no picture on my tv


This is a popular question. Most of the time you either need to make sure all connections are not loose or just need to turn off your tv and receiver and unplug. Wait for 1 minute then reboot.
I recommend this short video as it walks you through some diagnostics for other possible problems.

No Video Or Sound - Stand By Light Flashes 5 Times


If the tv was made before December 2008, there is a capacitor settlement from a class action lawsuit by Samsung. Supposedly (at no charge) they will send a repairman to replace the capacitors.
