42 inch screen has a strobe effect when turned on. Picture is there and sound is there but watching it flutter for about 5-10 minutes then goes away. I was told it is the backlight. .

Any way to fix this problem? Possible backlight issue. Doesn't matter what input the t.v. is in. Compenent ,HDMI etc...

MOST LIKELY YOU HAVE FAULTY CAPACITORS ON THE INVERTER BOARDS. THEY SHOULD BE 470UF 35V TYPES. THERE SHOULD BE 2 ON EACH INVERTER BOARD. If the tops of the capacitors are bulged, that's most likely your problem.

SOURCE: green screen vizio lcd

My 37" vizio I bought in Dec 2007 did this (green screen at start-up on all inputs). At first it went away by itself after you left the unit on for 15 minutes, but then 2 days later the whole thing DIED. Luckily Costco has a 90 day return policy on TVs.

Vizio tech support suggested this (before it died that is):
Please try to reset all setting and then to see if the problem is solved. 1. Press the Menu on your Remote Control;
2. choose Set up on the OSD;
3. then choose Reset All settings;
4. Press the Exit on your Remote Control to remove the OSD.

SOURCE: random red washout

We had the same red "pixilation" problem with our new Vizio 47" set. Read within this site for our solution (posted by Cavanaju): Call Vizio and have them come out and replace the LVDS cable and the main board. They will have to order and bring in the parts, which will involve them unscrewing a million screws to take off the entire back of the tv and replace that calbe within it all and the main board. It will then be just fine! (I hope...we just had ours fixed 4 days ago and so far, so good...) Hope this works. Seems to be a factory defect they have had with this set. Good luck!

I suspect you have a poor contact on the video processor board or the upscaler itself on the screen.
Check all ribbon connectors and look for any components that have got very hot, there may be a dry solder joint beneath them.
Hope this helps.

FLICKERING BACK LIGHT


Sounds like you have an LCD tv with backlight problems. Check power board for domed capacitors and replace them. next check connections on the inverter boards. they are on the sides or just one side. Becareful there is high voltage output from these boards. If the cable from inverter board is not good to the screen you can get a strobing. the inverter boards may need replaced. or cales to screen may be bad. The panel also could be bad.

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture


Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.
