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.

Vizio tv - plays fine and in color. hooked up phillips dvd player - all connectors connected correctly. when i play the dvd, it is only in black and white . . . not color. how can i get my dvd to play...


Which input on the TV and which output on the DVD player are you using? HDMI is the best and easiest. Next is standard video plus audio (3 leads, yellow - video, red and white - audio). If you are using the component input, you can get B&W if you have the leads incorrectly connected. If you're going from component to video in, you might have the same result, I'm not certain. I hope this helps you resolve your problem. Let us know.

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.

Signals to the tv from other sources and the image is P and G


Soon as though you have your wiring mixed up. Those leads, colors you describe are for Compnent Video signal....Red Green Blue. Now  the Others  are for Audio Visual signal , Yellow, Red, White... They are NOT compatable. IE: You cannot mix them. Check in your manual as to what  types of lead is needed how to wire it up..

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.

HOW DO I CONNECT MAGNAVOX DVD/ VCR TO VIZIO FLAT SCREEN


Is simply. get the audio/vido cables and look on the back of the TV and connect from the audio video outputs from the combo to the audio video inputs on the tv. remember the colors of the terminals and connect them that matches the red, white (audio) and the yellow (video). Using the remote locate the button "input" or "source", and select video 1 or 2, depending where you connected it.

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.
