Vizio LCD 37 Inch Turns Off Randomly

I have a 2006 Vizio 37 inch LCD that has started to turn itself off randomly.

Sometimes its within a few seconds of me turning it on, other times its hours into the TV being on. Sometimes it turns off once and then is fine and other times it will turn itself off several times in a row.

I called Vizio and, of course, my warranty has expired. I reset the TV per their instructions and have changed power sources, but am still having the problem.

Anyone have any solutions for this? Thanks, in advance, for any help you can provide! i have a l 37 vizio that keeps turning off by itself i took it back to the place i bought it from but they said they would have to run it all weekend is there any one that can offer me or them any advice?

    Same problem, has been going on for 6 months, sometimes 15 times in a row, then no problem for weeks.

    32" Vizio LCD manufactured 2006. Randomly turns itself. Starting to get more and more frequent. Maybe had the t.v. for a little over 1.5 years. Was impressed with Vizio but probably not gonna buy another one.

Solution: A new wifi extender, or a new or reset wireless modem or router in the range of the TV will cause this problem. Disconnect the TV from wifi, then reconnect manually and this will solve the problem. If you are not comfortable manually setting up the wifi connection you can reset the TV to factory settings and go through the setup process but you will also need to re-program the remote control again. (look in your manual to find instructions).

Sound is pinned at 100% output. Remote nor physical buttons on device are working.


If any of the buttons on the remote or tv work, then try going into the menu and turning the sound down manually.

Have a dark band horizontally across vizio tv. Appears to be a backlight, but not sure how to fix


Could be a bad CCFL lamp, if the set usess CCFL back-light system. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

Help. Element 40 inch. Left home it was fine. No one was in the house came back and this is what it looked like


That is a LCD leak normally from pressure point or heat. It could have been hit prior and that he took a toll on it there's no repair unless you're replace the whole LCD screen. You're better off if you're still on the warranty try to get a replacement just let him know elite if he has no obvious damage
