I have a Vizio 50"


Good day!!!

That problem is usually cause of bad inverter board or T-con board also there is the possibility that you have failing capacitors....

If your TV is totally black even back-light the problem is inverter board..please try to replace it to fix your TV.


If your have back-light but no image comes out...The problem could be on the T-con board..if that so please replace it...

This is for bad capacitors...

1. Open the back cover of your TV.

2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..

3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..

4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..

5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter..

My vizio is in hybernation mode it is a vizio model number GV42LFHDTV


Do you mean it will not turn on? If this is the case, you probably have bad capacitors in the power supply unit. Look at Shojimmy.com for a replacement power supply, or, if you feel comfortable with a soldering iron, remove the back cover, and look for any capacitors that have bloated or rounded tops & replace them with the next higher voltage rating, but same microfarad (or UF) rating & it should fix it.

Hook up computer to tv


The Vizio GV47LF HDTV's connection bay has everything we'd expect. It includes a pair of HDMI inputs which can take 1080p sources (at 60 but not 24Hz), two component-video inputs, one A/V input with composite video and one with composite and S-Video, one RF input for cable for antenna connections, an optical digital audio output, and a VGA-style PC input for PC connections.
If you're connecting a computer, you'll probably be disappointed that the VGA input maxes out at 1,360x768 resolution (which did look pretty good) instead of the full 1,920x1,080. We did connect a PC via HDMI and got 1,920x1,080 resolution, but the image didn't look as sharp as the 1,360x768 version. Again, we believe this has to do with the lack of a dot-by-dot mode, although perhaps people playing with picture settings, either in the Vizio or in the video card's drivers, can achieve a better-looking higher-resolution computer image. All-in-all, shoppers looking for a big computer monitor would be better served by the Westinghouse LVM-47w1.

Screen is stretching on each end. Vizio 32 inch. The picture is stretched on each end. The picture looks real weird and it almost makes you dizzy when you look at it.


Sounds like the display is in a mode which is sometimes called "Horizon", where they seek to fill the entire 16:9 screen with an image which is originally 4:3 by leaving the center of the image mostly alone and stretching the ends out horizontally. If your remote control has an "Aspect" button you might try pushing that a few times to cycle through the various settings.

The picture on my Vizio 42" flat screen suddenly shifted to a whitish pale color with ghostly looking images that look like negative film.


This is the fix for the Main board repair :
Locate IC 32 small 8 pin surface mount near top of Main Board and remove. Short pin 2 to pin 5. (pin 5 through 8 are together and pin 2 and 4 are together)
You will need a good TV Tech to do this for you.
