52" Vizio - Ihear I need to replace my LVDS....WHERE IS IT?!?!?
Is it big or small? Is it visible when the back cover is removed? is it integrated with the main board? Is it under the main board?
Got a quick response from my first post that said replace the LVDS...got 9 people that voted yes!! Great - Im ready...even got a picture of it online and a place to buy it. I cant find it in my TV anywhere. Just a little nudge in the right direction before I remove every board and component in this TV would be great!

Does the menu function display the same lines? What kind of cables are using ? (HDMI, Component vid, S-video, co-ax)
Were you as tenacious checking all cables/connections as you were the electronics? Lets rule out this all too often over-looked possibility.
Do you still get the lines with nothing connected to the TV? (no source connected)
Usually if the LVDS cable between the main board and the T-CON board is bad, you will loose one of the three color signals, you may have thermal problem with the T-CON board. I would run the TV with the back open to see if it will take longer for the problem to appear, or get a can of freeze spray for electronic troubleshooting and cool down the T-CON board (board is under the metal shield that you will have to remove to get to all the cables, I would remove the shield and put the screws back in to keep the T-CON board in place).
The TV as shown in my album has bad T-CON board, the pictures get pixelated and scrambled after about 1/2 hour, I was using a small fan to keep it cool until I finally found a replacement T-CON board. Bad LVDS driver IC on the main board can also be the problem. Right now we need to find out if it is heat related problem or not. http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/VIZIO%20L32HDTV10A/
This is your LVDS cable. You could replace it yourself and find a replacement online.
1) flip the LCD screen down onto a soft blanket 2) remove all 30 - 40 screws on the back 3) pop the back off 4) look for the LVDS wire, it runs from the top of the LCD screen to under the power unit and into the Main Board.
You will need to replace the LVDs cable. You do it yourself, if your a techie. There are a few websites that sell the cable. This is a known issue with the Vizio line. If you need more details on replacing it let us know.
You will need to replace the Main board and I would also replace the LVDS cable that connects the main board to the LCD panel.Very easy to do, but might take about 2 hours depending on your comfort level.
You will need:
LVDS cable – Part # 0500-0505-0540
Main board – Part # 3632-0652-0395
Those part numbers will work if you have a model number VOJ320F1A.
If you post the model number I will try to find the part number for you.
After posting this problem we did call Vizio. They sent out a repairman (had to wait over a week) who fixed it by: Replacing the LVDS cable and the main board. (Just like somebody on this blog wrote somewhere!) We also had just previously called our cable company who came out (also free) and checked our system only to find the cable running around the house to the tv needed replacing as it was sending zillions of errors. The red flowing problem (called "red pixilation") was due to the Vizio LVDS cable and main board being faulty from the factory. Just want you out there in web land to know how to get your similar problem fixed!
CLEAN LVDS CABLE CONNECTOR THE END SIDE ATTACHED TO THE CONTROL BOARD, THIS IS THE BOARD WHO IS ATACHED TO THE LCD PANEL .
LCD PANELS FOR VIZIO ARE NOT AVAILABLE ,UNLESS THE TV IS COVERED UNDER WARRANTY ,IF THIS DOESNT HELP YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE CONTROL PANEL BOARD, TRY EBAY TO GET THE BOARD .IF NEEDED
