Question about Vizio VO47L 47 in. LCD TV

I have a Vizio M47ONV. Left TV outside and think

I have a Vizio M47ONV. Left TV outside and think a raccoon peed on TV. TV comes on and the picture is clear, except for 2 grey bars that run vertically down the screen. I\'ve re-set the TV but still have vertical bars. Is this a board problem or is it the panel? Thanks, Jason

In my 30 years that\'s another first for me.. I guess it depends on location. It sounds like a panel issue. The ammonia in it will destroy it fast!

SOURCE: P2 42HD - Picture OK on right half ... vertical bars & black on left side

I just got quoted $705 from the Vizio certified repair partner. Nice. Nice and way too expensive. I may as well buy a new TV instead. It certainly won't be a Vizio. They told me a I needed a Y systainer, C systainer and a right-driver board.

Lame. I'm trying to find something local.

First you have to check if voltage and data are ok at the Y sustain board and the Y driver boards are not running hot. Even if you know how to replace these panels you must have a scope to adjust the v-set up and v- down. Not just a simple PNP. Trouble shooting a plasma is not a short time process to do it correctly. Please let a service center look at it for you.

Don't replace anything, Vizio has issued a lifetime warranty for this set because of this problem. No joke, call the customer service line and tell them you got the pop of death. They'll send someone out to 'repair' the set free of charge. If they can't fix it they'll give you a new one. Even if your mfg purchase warranty has expired. Call them and post the results. I've been fixing TV's longer than I care to admit and this is the first time I've actually seen a company stand behind their products like this. I bought a broken tv with the intent of fixing it and after replacing almost every board I could only manage to get the vertical racing stripe line, except mine was purple. I put it all back together and called to find out if there was a recall on this set and within 5 minutes the (Actual English speaking) gentleman told me to sit tight and he'd have a repairman come and do his thing. He did, and long story short, he couldn't fix it. Last week they delivered a new TV to replace this one. I was shocked. I think Vizio will have all my future business.
Good luck.

My 70" Vizio smart TV will turn on but there is no picture or sound. I think it blew a fuse.. how do I fix it??


the first thing i would do id completely disconnect power to vizio tv and wait roughly two mins before plugging it back it. once that is done try to see if your picture comes back up . if your screen does not comes back the tv has unfortunately taken a turn for the worst. sometimes it costs more to repair than it does to replace so just make sure that your tv is or is not covered under a manufacturers warranty that may be able to have to tv replace for free depending on the scenario. below is the number and hours of operation. i also gave you a link to their support site. good luck!

Vizio tv


Many Visio tv's have the same problem, and also reversed - picture and no sound. The quick fix is to disconnect the power cord at TV - then hold in the power button (usually found on left side 1/4 up from bottom of screen , located on the side/back of the set. a square button all alone) - hold power button in for 30 1,000 mississippi's, yes, that is what a Visio tech told me and it works. I was lucky enough to have the problem start before the 30 return policy ended at Walmart - decided I did not want a product that obviously has a chip failure coming soon! I exchanged for a Samsung and have not looked back!

VIZIO 42 CLASS RAZOR LED SMART TV M420KD picture has lots of green ghosting and thin white vertical line through left side of screen also


Hi Charlene,

please try with video input from any device,and i think you are using local antenna and it has gain problem or your tuner section of the tv is not working correctly.
if distroted pictures comes with video input signal it is video amp and processing unit problem.
you have to go for repair shop for fix that.

My trail camera is getting many all white pictures throughout the day and night , do you have any suggestions as to why this would be happening and what I can do to fix this?


what kind of cam do you have love? Not knowing that and just camera's in general, it sounds like there is something that is coming just too close to the lens before the picture is taken. Could be a raccoon or possum if it's higher in a tree. Especially since there are some pictures coming out. Especially if there was a raccoon nest in or around the tree and or post that it is on. Other than that I need more info.

Vizio SV470M Issue Sound No Picture


Do you have backlight? If you do, you have a bad main logic board. Very common with vizio and are hard to find. They are usually out of stock everywhere.

I have a 46" flat


IS your image actually being cut off by the black bars? If not this may simply be the way the signal is being transmitted to your TV. One quick way to tell is to check to see if the image is the same on all channels, while watching a DVD, or playing a game. Alternatively, you might look for a Format button on your TV remote. This button may cycle through the picture formats available to your TV. See if pressing this button changes the picture dimensions.

Hope that helps!

WHEN I TURN ON MY L32 I GET NO PICTURE. I GET BLACK SCREEN THEN LOTS OF COLOR, REDS ,BLUE ,ALL COLORS IN DIFFERENT PATERNS THAT KEEP CHANGING. SOUND IS PERFECT AND I CAN CHANGE CHANNELS AND VOLUMEAND...


It sounds to me like it's stuck in service mode.There is a button combination with the remote to return it to normal. I would call Vizio support and they should be able to help you.

I think it's a combination like [volume -], [channel -] and power but I could be wrong.
