Question about Vizio L37 Television

Vizio L37 blue screen only, "no signal", then turns itself off

All of a sudden, when i turn on the 2 yr-old tv, all i get is a blue screen w/a "no signal" message, and the tv turns itself off after 5 seconds. Vizio customer service/tech support atrocious; gave me a factory-authorized repair service phone number that doesn't work.

    What is a "connection ic"? are you suggesting i replace the main board, and if so, is it something a layperson can do?

  • matt Mar 07, 2009

    i checked all connections, unplugged and re-plugged everything, to no avail. i am connected only via the coax cable, no box. tv shuts itself off after 5 sec. input button on tv doesn't change anything.

Connect the signal source like cables
Then go into the Channel/Signal menu on your set and select signal source.
Then go to SCAN or auto program and SCAN in all channels.

If you still get the message no signal . Then you have a bad cable /ribbon connection inside . Change this cable .

You can get one from the link below

Cable for Vizio tv


It will cost you $35 for replacement . You can do this replacement if you have service manual with you .

Else you can take to near by service center to get it repaired .

Hope this helps .

Just hold down the input button on the right side of the tv. This is the bottom one. So,
With the tv off,
press and hold the bottom button (input)
when the tv turns on, and you see the input menu
release and press the button to put the tv into a mode that works!
Thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always a 'blue screen' is indicative of 'no signal' which means that the TV could not sense any incoming TV reception. Pls try to check:

  • cables and connectors at the back of the TV;
  • your cable subscription and cable provider connections;
  • try using another video source such as a DVD or even an old VCR;
  • if you are using a receiver box, check the connections;
  • alternately, you may want to try switching 'SOURCES' on the TV such as Tuner, Line 1, Line 2, AUX, Video 1 or others.

Pls post back any updates on developments.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    Try an external signal source such as a DVD, video cam, game console or an old VCR and set TV to Video Input. If problem persists, then it would be the video processor of the TV. On the otherhand, if there is video using another//external source, then the fault would be with the tuner block of the TV. This is of course if you have confirmed that the cable TV is working by checking with another TV.

    If you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself), then this would require opening the TV, familiarity with electronic components & circuitry, use of a DVD/VOM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access/referencing a Service Manual or at the very least a schematic diagram. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, perhaps your best bet then would be to seek the services of an authorized service center or a qualified professional.

Try changing the INPUT by pressing the button on remote control. Try plugging something else into tv. Ex, dvd player. And try that input also.

I have a Vizio L37. When I turn on the TV it works perfectly after about 3 minutes the screen goes to green (no picture). However I still have the sound.


My first guess would be your t-con board. The t-con board is the one that transfers teh picture from your signal board to your screen. My second guess would be the siganl board is bad.

Sounds like a bad av connection on the main board. i would try to connect the xbox via an alternate av connection or hdmi to verify problem. contact vizio support and describe your problem. they have had trouble with this main board. some of their parts have lifetime warranties and the service call is free. changing out the main board is a pretty simple process, about an hour or less. hope this helps.
