Vizio VX32L HDTV that has gone Predator on me

I have a Vizio VX32L HDTV. I purchased it in Sept 2007. For the past month the image appears as a "negative image." If you have ever seen Predator, it looks like the Predator's thermal imaging...bright pink, blue, yellow, orange. This image comes and goes, and is pixalated. The image is there even when playing a DVD, so it is definitely the TV. I called Vizio and was told to reset the settings, which only made things worse. The warranty has expired and I was told to call their service repair department, ITI. Anyone know what to do or how much it would cost to fix a problem like this? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Vortash! You have certainly helped me. I am scheduled to drop the unit off to have a diagnostic done on Monday and armed with what you have said, I hope to not be jerked around. Thanks again!

Hi ryubaum I am Vortash from what I can see your not on your own with this problem it seems a number of people are having the same fault with various models .. here in the uk we attend regular updates from companies that inform us of stock faults ... that's faults that are most likely to appear on certain models over time ,and how to repair them .. unfortunately I am in the uk and have not worked on the us export versions of these sets and there would possibly be a difference in the stock fault reasons . All I can tell you for sure is that the problem lies in either your chroma section of the set or the main system control module ( the IC that responds to your settings commands from the Remote )
I have had similar problems with other sets of corruption of the processor and all it needs is resetting , but as for cost, here it would be approx £ 65 70 £80 that's about $ 160 at the most providing it is not an actual LCD fault hope this is of help Regards Vortash

Solution(green screen) VX32L HDTV

Try reseating your cables first if you are using component (green, blue, red) cables. Unplug these cables from the television and from the device and leave them out for 30 full seconds. Then plug them back in. You may need to purchase a new set of these cables if these are what you are using.

My vizio vx32l will not turn on. vizio logo will

The main board has failed. Replace the main board will fix the problem.

By the way, where did you buy the TV? If you have bought it from Costco then try to give them a call to see if it still under warranty.

Hope this will help.

No Power to a Vizio VX32L

My best guess is to check for blown fuses or the power board when bad inside the TV.
If that doesn't work, looks like you'll have to pay a repair shop to find out what's really going on.
Sorry I can't help you further.

Vizio VX32L image distorts on edges like looking in a metal bowl.

I had a similar issue. Realized that the TV's "WIDE" setting was changed from "Wide" to "Panaramic". It was this panaramic setting that was causing the distortion on both sides of the screen. I had to switch it back to "Wide" using the "Wide" button on the remote to toggle back to "Wide" setting. Once I put it back to "Wide", problem went away. Hope this helps.
