Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Brand new Vizio VW46LF acting strange.

I just bought a Vizio VW46LF and when i turned it on the initial setup menu came on. I went to the other room to get the manual and when i came back the screen was black. The vizio light still changes from orange to white (or white-orange) when the power is pressed however nothing else works, no sound, no video, no input change, no blue screens no menu of any kind. I reset the TV by unplugging it for a few hours hoping it would try to do the initial startup menu again however it still does the same thing. I literally did nothing to the tv between it first being turned on and it stopping working, i was in a different room. Noone else lives here either so noone else did anything. Any ideas would be appreciated.

How to get the initial setup screen off a vizio tv without remote


You should have its remote control to get the initial set-up. To buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.

We have the M220MV. Cannot change channels using the numeric keypad on the remote. I know it should be possible, the manual says you can change channels this way. If not, the last channel button would be...


Hello
Reset your Tv to factory settings. It will unlock all locks including front panel lock.

Reset All Settings

Return all Picture and Audio settings to factory default. A screen will come up to confirm your

selection or to cancel it. Press Left or Right Navigation buttons to make the selection, and then
press OK to accept it.

Setup Wizard
Use this function to return to the Initial Setup menu
Go to its user manual for Initial setup menu details.
OK.

Razor shuts off by itself


your probly right.....its either corupt software of a battery issue....try the obvious first (remove and reinsert the battery if you havent already)....if that fails, try the master reset.

MENU > SETTINGS > INITIAL SETUP > MASTER RESET

**default code is 000000 (6 zeros)**

if THAT doesnt work, try a different battery. you can pick them up cheap if you dont have one lying around from www.amazon.com or www.shopmotorola.com

if thats not an option, try a master clear. if you dont want to buy anything, i would try this first. the master reset just sets everthing back to manufacturers default.....the clear DOES. you will LOOSE EVERYTHING INSTALLED ON THE PHONE MEMORY.

to do this, go to MENU > SETTINGS > INITIAL SETUP > MASTER CLEAR

**again, default code is 000000 (6 zeros)**

good luck :)

32" Sony Wega -- initial set-up menu constantly on


Came across this because I was having the same problem. I was getting the menu immediately. It started with the remotes not working with the TV, so I unplugged it. Afterwards, the initial setup appeared, but couldn't complete. I don't have anything connected to the tuner, everything is on video inputs. Don't know why it wouldn't complete, it would get 20-40 channels into it, and stop, and the "initial setup screen" appeared. I ended up turning off all peripherals, waited about 10 minutes, then running the setup. it finally completed the scan of the tuner channels, and has not appeared since. Perhaps just an accidental solution, but hopefully something in there helps.
