This is likely due to heat expansion (turned on) and contraction (turned off).

take it to sears repair shop. Most likely they will ask you almost half the price of the TV to repair it. It is a thin glass that is inside of it that is very fragile.

There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If the TV is under warranty—whether the original warranty from the manufacture or an extended warranty purchased with the TV—call the company providing the warranty coverage and they will arrange to have your TV repaired at little, or no cost to you.


Since some brands will pay for your repair even if you're out of warranty, especially if they've heard of your problem before and it's a known issue. You should always contact the manufacture first for your full range of options. If they're willing to fix the TV for free, or at a reduced cost to you, let them!


If the TV is out of warranty, and you have the experience and you know what you're doing, you can fix the TV yourself. Purchase the service manual from the manufacture to get started. However, if you've never done anything like this type of repair before and you don't know where to start, I suggest speaking with an experienced TV repair-person.


If you decide to pay for out of warranty repair by a professional repair shop, the total cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.


I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today!


Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

That white line (usually jagged) is actuallly part of the transmitted picture. However, you are not intended to see it because it is located in what is known as the 5% overscan area. Your TVs today are more than just cable ready... they are a versital, technology filled multimedia display. You can see that line because the screen size or wide mode you are using is intended for 1080p/24 signals. You have 0% overscan with this screen size setting. This allows you to see ALL of the picture, including portions of the picture the broadcaster did not intend for you to see. You can change your screen size using the Wide feature in the Setup menu. See pg.62 of your user manual for details and descriptions of the various wide modes.

It can be that the inverter is not getting the 24vdc fromt he power supply module, check for that first, you can check it at either the power supply termninals or at the inverter board. Look to see if the power supply has any leaking/bulging top caps. Modules are easy to replace, fixing it down to component level is not so easy unless you have proper tools an electronics knowledges.

Try AUTO.
When Daylight Saving takes effect you can go into setup CLOCK and click DST on.
When Daylight Saving ends you can go into setup CLOCK and click DST off.

When playin my PS3 on my 32in Vizio the 1080i and 720p settings keeps zoomin in up close so i cant see the whole picture wats the problem?


I gather from what the information you gave that one of the devices is 1080i and the other is 720P. One of the devices , in this case the Vizio TV is auto correcting the picture frame.
Explanation: the PS3 is sending video in 720p and the Vizio is trying ot auto correct this issue thinking the video signal is incorrect and adjusting to fit the screen.
Check your instruction manual for both device and the correct setting to get the correct video experience. There may be a incompatibility issue here.
