Question about Vizio SV472XVT 47 in. LCD HDTV

Open Question

User input issue

I had Netflix running and pulled up the menu using the Vizio button on the remote and selected to open Netflix a second time. The television tried to reopen the application that it was already running and crashed, resetting itself. Now whenever I press a direction button on the remote (i.e. volume up/down, select up/down, or even selecting a different input) it "holds" that selection. For example: I select to up the volume from 10 to 12, the television takes the volume as loud as it can. But I found that at least with the input and menu selections if I continue to select a direction it reads it as a new direction every time and doesn't keep going. I tried navigating the menu to the factory reset and succeeded but the issue wasn't fixed with that. I'm sure that sounds redundant but I wanted to give a good description of the issue.

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.

SOURCE: Vizio L37 no picture or sound, power light comes

This would be a mainboard issue. Since it effects both video and sound. I would replace the M/B. It's easy to do. You will need to post the model number of you TV so I could post the correct part number.

After you get the a new M/B you woudl flip the TV over and remove all the screws. Pop of the back and remove the screws from the M/B cover. Don't forget to remove the screws around the input jacks. After that it's easy. Just replace the M/B and put it all back together and your surfing again.

SOURCE: I lose Audio from internal speakers Vizio

This issue is actually caused by my cable box. Access the audio SETTINGS on Hand held Cable Remote, and turn on the HDMI and or "Digital Audio Out" option. found on 'more' settings list. This should fix the issue. I had assumed the Cable companeis 'Boot' would have installed this feature during its initialization.

SOURCE: BRAND NEW JUST TOOK OUT

I would not keep a new LCD TV that has immediate problems. I would get a refund and purchase a more standard brand television. Experience has taught me that if one has problems immediately with an LCD TV itself, it is likely to continue to be problematic.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Call Vizio and see if they will give you the button combination to get into Service mode. There is a hard reboot that can be done on your set that may resolve this issue.

How do you change to hdmi video source


There are several ways to change your video input source for the E421VO. First: the lowest button on the side of the TV will cycle through the inputs. (The power button is the top button.) The original remote has the Input button to the left of the Zero button at the bottom left of the number area. With both just press the key multiple times to go through all of the inputs. Alternatively, press the Menu button and look for the Source sub-menu. Use the arrow keys to move to the chosen menu. (On the TV, the menu button is below the power button. On the remote, Menu is the button to the top right above the arrow keys.) If you are using a universal remote, you may need to find one that matches the Input or Menu functions for your TV. A different code may help if the remote has either button. Otherwise, you'll need a different remote.

The manual for the Vizio E421VO is available from Vizio's product site: http://www.vizio.com/e421vo.html . Click on the Support/Manuals tab. The direct link to the manual is http://www.vizio.com/documents/downloads/hdtv/E421VO/UM_E421VO.pdf . All of these options are shown in the manual.

I hope this helps.

Televison station won't scan


If you are receiving a "No Signal" error message, verify that:
  1. All of the cables physically connected to the TV and the input device are secure.
  2. The input device is turned on.
Your TV needs to scan for channels before it can show programming from an antenna, from cable TV when the cable comes directly from the wall (no cable box), or from a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with a coaxial (RF) cable. Do not scan for channels if you have a cable or satellite box connected using AV (Composite), Component, or HDMI cables. The box selects the channel, not the tuner inside your television. If you are not using the "TV" input, press the INPUT button on your remote until the correct input mode is selected.
To perform a channel scan using the coaxial input:
  1. Press the INPUT button on your remote to view your current input source. The TV (coaxial cable) input must be selected. This may appear as "TV," "ANT," or the channel and call letters of a station.
  2. If the TV input is not selected, press INPUT until the TV input mode is selected.
  3. Open the on-screen menu and select TV or Tuner option. (This varies by model.)
  4. Highlight Tuner Mode and select the correct option:
    • Antenna-over-the air signals from an antenna
    • Cable-direct from the wall cable TV, or a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with coaxial cable
  5. Select Auto Search or Auto Channel Scan. (This varies by model.)
  6. When the search reaches 100% complete, exit to the menu.
  7. Check the available channels:
    • Antenna or direct-from-wall cable-Press the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons on your VIZIO TV remote to view the available channels.
    • Cable or satellite box- Will return only one channel. Use the cable or satellite remote's Channel Up and Channel Down buttons.
If this does not resolve the issue, power cycle the TV and then re-run the channel scan:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet.
  3. While the TV is unplugged from the wall, press and hold the Power button on the TV for 30 seconds.
  4. Release the power button.
  5. Plug the TV back into the electrical outlet.
  6. Turn on the TV.
Note: There is also an option to reset the TV to the factory default settings. This option is in either the SETUP or SYSTEM section of the on-screen menu. The option may be "Reset all settings", "System Reset," or "Reset & Admin." Consult your TV's user manual for the location and steps for resetting your model.
  1. Remove the coaxial cable from the DTV/TV connector on the back of your television and perform a channel scan to clear the existing channels. See the procedure above. This should not find any channels.
  2. Re-attach the coaxial cable to the DTV/TV connector and perform a new channel scan.

The Netflix app on my vizio svt422xvt (one of the Vizios with VIA internet & wifi built-in) won't connect to Netflix. It directs me to the Netflix website for help, but Netflix help tells me to...


I had the same problem with my Vizio XVT473SV. I couldn't find the Netflix Activation Code. When I clicked on the Netflix App, the TV would ask me if I wanted to connect to Netflix, then it would ask me if I was a Netflix member. After clicking yes to both, it would tell me it couldn't connect to the Netflix server, check with Netflix.com/tvhelp. After a couple hours of troubleshooting, the solution was......your first use of the Netflix App has to be via the Ethernet Port/Cable. This will give you a screen with the Activation Code, after you activate the code in your Netflix account, you can go back to using WiFi on your Vizio TV to connect to Netflix. Step by step instructions are...
1) Exit the Vizio Netflix App.
2) Physically connect an Ethernet cable to your broadband (just temporarily)
3) Check to make sure the Vizio is using the Ethernet port and not your WiFi (Apps Button - HDTV Settings - Network...may have to reboot the TV to get Ethernet port connection)
4) Start the Vizio Netflix App
5) Click OK to start the Netflix App
6) You should now see a different screen that gives you the Netflix Activation Code.
7) On your Computer, Login in to Netflix,
8) Click on "Your Account & Help" link on upper right corner
9) Scroll down to Watching Instantly on your TV or Computer section
10) Click on Activate a Netflix Ready Device
11) Enter the Activation Code shown on your Vizio TV and click Activate
12) Once your Netflix account (on your computer) shows it is active, your Vizio TV will automatically log in. You should see your Instant Queue.
13) Exit the Netflix App, unplug the Ethernet cable, Turn Off your Vizio TV.
14) After 20 seconds or so (remember the TV is software driven), turn the TV back on and your WiFi should connect again.
15) Use your Netflix App and this time it should automatically connect via WiFi
note: just make sure that your wireless DSL/Cable Modem or Wireless Router is not blocking your WiFi connection request from the Vizio. You can check the connection status in the modem/router or in the Vizio in the HDTV Settings - Network.

When I connect HDMI from a Time Warner DVR to my Vizio thru a DVI/HDMI adapter, I get no sound. I can only get sound if I use Component input (RGB+ audio R&L). Is this a DVR issue or a Vizio issue?


Use the Time Warner remote and hit the settings button twice. Scroll down to "audio: digital out" and select HDMI. That solved it for me.

The only issue I have now is that I also have component sound outputs going from the cable box to a receiver. When I turn off the TV while the HDMI cable is hooked up to both the box and the tv the sound goes out to the receiver...

CHANGE CHANNELS WITH THE CONTROL


Run a channel scan on the DTV and/or TV input depending on what one your not getting channels on. This will solve your issue.

Change the input on the unit to the DTV or TV input. Press the menu button on the remote. Navigate to the tuner DTV or TV tuner setup menu. Go down to auto search using the down arrow. go right when with auto search selected. This may take a few minutes but you should have all the channels back after the scan.
