Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Visio 32L color goes bad with ghost images after about 5 minutes.

We have had no problems with our tv since we purchased it a bit over a year ago. Recently after it is on for a while the picture goes bad with weird color and ghost images. If you shut it off for about 2-3 minutes and turn it back on it will work fine for about the same time period and then go bad again. If you shut if off for only a minute it will not return to a good image. Almost like the power has to bleed off everything before it works right again. Any ideas?

This sounds like one of the two things that destroys electronics. Heat. You can try this. Place a fan blowing into the vents of the set before you turn on the set. See if the set run longer before the problem occurs.
You may have a marginal part or bad connector/connection.

I have a Visio LCD TV 2 years old not working -- i have a backlight but not screen


about a year ago our visio tv started having lines going up and down from the bottom to the top. we called direct tv and they could not find anything wrong with the cable. the problem got better and then worse. finally we called the tv repair man and he said it was the monitor and that it cost more to replace the part than it does to buy a new tv. that means after about a year that we purchased it the tv monitor was bad. now what do we do?

P42HDTV Visio Plasma TV. The picture is bad grainy/snowy.


Doing some warranty work for Visio, I ran into this same problem. I replaced the video and power boards, among other things. Turned out to be a bad panel, which isnt viable to replace. Best to get Visio to agree they made a lemon (as all their products are in my humble opinion) and have them send you a new tv, or even better, buy a tv that is NOT a visio. You can get great deals on LG and Samsung these days, both decent quality tvs.

Green shadows appear on new visio SV470VT. Very


It maybe a circuit control board for the screen. Last thing you want to do is void the warranty by opening up the TV.
Best to use the warranty at this point. Here's info to get you started.

We are getting ghost images and the color is not correct


I have red concave lines going across the screen, plus wording appears double like a ghosting effect, this is ongoing from the time the tv is turned on until it is turned off. This started 3 days ago. Is it time for a new tv, its 9 or 10 yrs old now.

Red ghosting on images that are not closeup


1. Power off -- let bulb cool.
2. Display - 5 - VOL+ - Power (in quick sequence) to display service menu.
3. Go into the user menu and set auto revision back to auto.
4. Put an image on the screen that shows the problem. I always found the edges of a 4:3 aspect ratio signal displayed the ghosting very well on my set.
5. Use 2 to scroll through the categories to find D GM TG
6. Use 1 to scroll through items in D GM TG to find V POS D
7. Write down current value.
9. Use 3 and 6 to change the value to minimize the ghosting. You should only need to move it up or down a value or two.
10. Press Mute - Enter to save the changes.
11. Power off and let the bulb cool.
