Unwanted stripes on Vizio TV

I recently received a Vizio 42” flat-panel 1080p Full HDMI set. The image with my HDMI cable is great, but almost always the screen shows about 4” from the right side a thin red & green vertical stripe from top to bottom and 2 gray horizontal stripes near the top of the screen (see attached photos). I’ve tried varying all the Menu options, but the lines remain. Please advise me what to do to remove this lines. Thank you.

SOURCE: The left half of my Vizio tv screen turned black

This is common and very likely the LCD panel has lost its connection at those points around the panel. Most repair shops don't even try to fix it as it is a huge pain to try. You should be able to get a warranty replacement if it is new.

This is likely due to heat expansion (turned on) and contraction (turned off).

You need to check your inputs. Make sure your tv is set to the same input that you are plugged into. Ex. If you are plugged into HDMI 1 then your TV SOURCE needs to be on HDMI 1.

Your cable box and TV are set to different resolutions. Check the setup on both and make sure everything is the same (ie 720p to 720p or 1080p to 1080p) Make sure your cable box can give you 1080p (Nice set, BTW!!). HDMI is supposed to automatically take care of the settings, but it does not hurt to double-check.

Depending on the manufacturer of the cable box, there may be screen setting for "letterbox" which should be selected.

Some TV channels, when redirected through a cable box, simply will not display full resolution (1080p) programming. Your cable TV provider can tell you which channels are displayed in high resolution.

Finally, make sure your cable provider gave you the correct box. Older boxes are not capable of providing 1080p resolution, and since you own a 1080p set, you deserve nothing less!

I cannot switch to 1080p on my Vizio. It is a full HD TV but will not do 1080p and I can't switch resolution off of 480p even with a Blu-Ray.


The resolution is not set at the TV, it is set by the video sources. The TV will detect the resolution and display what it is receiving.
1080P signal = 1080p display.
Does it do that on all sources?

My new set displays only 480p SD on all my HD channels. Am I missing some settings in the menu's or is something more sinister going on? Any help would be greatful, I'm drowning watching sports!


hi,
u can enjoy full hd 1080p video through only ur tv inputs as 2 component video and 2 HDMI. the tv is seted to receive videos up to the resolution 1080p automatically (need not have any setting). just check the output of ur cable box or BD player, is it outputs full hd. if u are using the tvs internal tuner u will only get 480p.

ok

My tv only shows 720p and i am not sure how to adjust it to 1080p ={


You have to adjust the settings on whatever is connected to your television. If you have a bluray player connected to your television with an hdmi cable you should be able to receive 1080p but you have to set the bluray player to 1080i. The tv picks up the signal automatically. From your cable box or satellite tv box you cannot get any more than 1080i from television programs at this time. You can get 1080p from bluray on demand. In certain circumstances you can get 1080p over component cables as well as an hdmi cable but in most cases you will only get 1080i. Once again you have to set your connected device to 1080 to get it on your tv

How do you set our vizio to 1080p it is currently set at 480p


You really don't think you set the TV for this, if the TV supports 1080p and the device was 1080 capabilities then the TV will recognize this. If you using a cable box make sure your using the HDMI port on the cable box. I have seen in the past cable companies just using the component ports.

How do I get from 480 to 1080p on my tv? I have an HD box on my vizio 42 inch tv but my channels are still showing 480?


1080P is a quality you'll only get with a blue ray quality video. Therefore, you won't get 1080P on cable tv. If your cable provider has HD channels available, you'll be able to get 720 or 1080i quality video (on those channels only). For the best quality, make sure you are using an HDMI cable. Just be sure your cable box supports an HDMI output. Your Vizio definately supports that type of input. If you have a PS3 or alternative blue ray player, you'll be able to watch 1080P.
