SOURCE: Have a vizio model M190VA

What source is connected to the TV (what input is it looking for)? Check that the cables are fully connected and undamaged. If the source is a set-top box or dvd player, make sure the device is on and works for another TV. If the source is OTA, make sure the antenna is pointed in the correct direction and is getting sufficient signal. (Try or for antenna direction and signal strength. Antennaweb is very conservative in the list and assumes an outdoor antenna.) If you have an amplifier or splitter, try eliminating them to test just the one tv (I've had several amplifiers turn into filters that blocked one station after lightning strikes). Try rescanning for channels.

Try another station or source. If none of these ideas help, you may have damage to the video input board or a problem with the cable from that board to the rest of the TV. If the tv is out of warranty, open up the unit and remove the shielding. Look at the boards for obvious damage (soot, scorch marks, leaking capacitors (look like cylinders on tripods)). My usual source doesn't list parts for this model TV but you may be able to find the board with the part number on the board itself.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Upon powering on my xvt47sv

The main board of this Vizio is known to fail after some use.

Its number is CBPF9D1KZ4 and as you will see it is hard to find, unless you want to pay $250 or so, which doesn't make any sense, at least to me.

Another common failure in those is the T-CON board, but from the sound of it the problem you have is in the main board.

Here's what I'd do if I were you: post a local ad on Craigslist, sell it to the highest bidder and use the money towards puchasing a new TV.

Not sure it's what you want to hear, but it's what I tell some customers and thus losing business that I couldn't have had anyway because it's insanely expensive and prone to more failures anyway.

If it helps you please vote for me - it helps me in turn :-)

I don't have cable. Do I need an antenna to be able to get any channels in this area or does the TV have an internal antenna?

Go to and it will tell you what kind of antenna you need and what stations you can receive according to your address.

Can i turn my vizio m190va tv into a computer monitor?

Unfortunately. the HDMI port on the M190VA does not interpret the signal from a computer. The HDMI signal from a set-top box is different than that of a computer. You need to use the VGA port and the PC audio in on the TV; if your computer doesn't have a VGA port, use a DVI to VGA adapter or other appropriate adapter. You will need a 3.5 mm audio patch cable to use the TV's speakers. See page 25 of the M190VA manual here: .

I wish that I had better news for you.

No sound on my tv. It just stopped working. I turned it off and on, unplugged it, and checked all the audio settings. Ive only had this tv for 2 months. Help! Its the visio m190va.

First check your speakers using a multimeter. A good speaker has a reading of 6-8 ohms. Then if the speaker is o.k then check the TV amplifier. It is located on where the speaker connector is connected.Try to replace a new one. Hope this may help

I have a Vizio M190VA LED tv. Once i plug it in it will come on and then turn off by itself after about 5min. It will not turn back on unless i unplug it and plug it back in. Please help. I am farely tech...


It's the problem of overheating in the power supply board of the TV.on the power supply board of the TV there are few capacitors and IC.any of this IC is got short or may be due to this when you start the TV the current passes from electric outlet to the power supply board of TV.but when the current passes from that weak/faulty part at that time current gets stopped or slow and the board overheats and TV shuts off. this is a common problem faced by many other users too.the possible option to solve this issue is to check the power supply board by a meter and continuity tester and replace the faulty component on the board which is short due to which power supply board is getting overheated.its bit technical job but yes its not at all a costly repair to do or get it done by the technician. for required parts it can be easily available from local electronic hardware shop.

Hope this will help in solving the problem.......

A message is on my screen that says, "Video 5 HDMI is not supported

Whatever you have plugged into HDMI 5 is set to a resolution that exceeds the TVs ability to display. Try setting the source to 720p or 420p
