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.

What would effect the picture quality the color wheel or lamp?


The color wheel is your suspect.......usually whines a bit
when bad. In a quiet room, you can hear it when the TV is powered on or off. It spins at 9,000 rpm ( wears out the bearing).
The lamp will not exhibit those symptoms....

Picture dimming and an ominous clicking sound


If this set is really only 5 weeks old, place a warranty service request for repair. This should not be happening. Either the ballast is bad or the lamp. In any case, either should be covered under warranty.

Please keep us updated.

Thanks,

Toshiba 61H70 Weird Convergence Issue?


They may have gotten some cheap convergence ICs, thats a real possibility. I would recommend switching the two origional STK392-110 with some STK392-150 they will run alot cooler and last alot longer. Just use a good coating of heat sink compound on the back of the ICs. I will post a link where you can get top quality Convergence ICs and they provide free instalation instructions with pictures so you can do the job yourself in under an hour and save quite a bit of money. Heres the link.

Distorted picture


Being as the problem comes and goes this would suggest that the convergence Ic's are simply un-soldering them self from the board, If you catch this soon enough a simple re-solder will fix this

Distorted Picture Proportions


well i beleive ur tv still have a warranty since it is purchased less than a month ago according to you. i suggest that u use it and have it check with their technician. it seems that there is an internal problem with your tv, particularly the vertical circuits. did u try to hook up another tv? this symptom is caused by a poor vertical linearity wherein the image is compressed or stretched at the top or bottom of the raster
