Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

Vizio with terrible color

I jsut bought a Vizio VOJ32, or maybe it's V0J32, which has terrible color with either my direct TV or DVD's. I have gone through all the settings and to get only close to decent color, the settings are all over the board. The color temperature settings are... green way down low, and red and blue way up high and the color level way up high. The color is also bad with all the factory default settings. The color is OK however when receiving off the air digital broadcasts. The picture is sharp though. I just bought this yesterday and am wondering if I should take it back??? Thank you! Bob

    Thank you. I did some more experimenting and came up with the same results. The only thing close is off the air digital broadcasts but it still isn't right. I talked to two very experienced TV techs and they both had the idea that it may have been dropped somewhere along the line. They both said LCD's cannot be dropped. Do you agree? I will try the cable experiment you mentioned at the store because it looks like it's going back this weekend. Any other opinions are welcome. Thanks, Bob

YES. Take it back. Also take your DVD and cables also. Have the store try the tv with their DVD and cables and see if you get the same problems. It it good, then try your cables. Or try your DVD with their cable. It's under warranty now so resolved it now. If you bought by credit card, that may have a brief warranty also.

42 inch vizio has picture (direct tv) but no sound. Tv is not on mute.


Did you check the RCA AV Cables? The ones with the red, white yellow?

What is the connection you have from Direct TV box to your TV. You might want to start on that.

It might probably as well related to any of the remote controls settings. Either of the Direct TV control or TV Control.

1. Check the cables
2. Check if there is any function on the Direct TV remote that will turn off the sound
3. CHeck the Vizio TV Menu Settings.
4. Try with other component such as DVD to discard the possibility of malfunctioning VIZIO Speakers.

Vizio offer a good customer service if still under warranty.

God Bless You!!

There is usually at least a 90-day warranty. http://www.vizio.com/support/
Here is a link to Vizio customer support.They should be able to do something.You need to have a receipt probably.Also you will need model and serial numbers.Serial number should be on the back,maybe by the A/V inputs.If no receipt,did you register it?If you didn't,the credit card statement may help.Good luck.

Vizio remote


The remotes for the TV and Direct TV box are universal remotes that can operate very basic functions for whatever else they are programmed to control. If you can program the TVs remote to operate the Direct TV box it will basically only control power and channel. Maybe something else, but not much. The same goes for the Direct TV remote. It will control basic functions on the TV; power, channel & volume. Best bet would be to purchase a universal remote that can learn functions from the original or just keep both remotes available by the TV.

PIP (Picture In Picture) - Your television should have the capability because it has two built in tuners. It can show two channels at the same time or show one channel and one video source (whatever is connected to the audio/video inputs). However, because you are using DTV (Direct TV) you are very limited because you are not using the built in tuners on your television. You should be able to see one picture from the DTV channel and one from lets say your DVD player. If your DTV box has two tuners built in then you should have the PIP capabilities from your DTV and not your television. I'm guessing your DTV is a single tuner (one satellite cable to your box). If you want to watch two different channels you'll need to either upgrade your box or attach another box to your television.

Option: you could also connect an antenna to your television this way you can use the PIP function. Obviously you'll only be able to view whatever local stations you can get with the antenna. Depending on where you live you might or might not have a lot of channels to choose from.

Small black squares appear on Vizio 37


Sounds like a digital cable issue to me. Try connecting the cable directly to the TV bypassing the cable box and I bet that the issue will be gone. If so then contact your cable provider as the box or the incomming signal may be at falt.
