Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV
My 3 yr old vizio lcd hdtv is now flashing like a strobe light. it begins to flash after about 15-20 minutes. the picture is visable but its like a stobe light. thanks
All four of the capacitors have yet to go out maybe only 2.. still give it a couple more days all you will have is a 42" strobe light.... OK so take the back and the stand off the TV about 30 screws... when you look at the insides there will be 2 larger circuit boards in the middle of the TV and one small one on the top of the TV pay those three boards no mind at all.. look to the right and left there will be one on each side of the TV covered with some medal shields remove the shields extract the board look at the 2 big capacitors laying on their side inspect the top there is a factory score mark that will have black residue leaking if this is what you see, go to radio shack bring one of the capacitors in with you and get 4 new ones replace both caps side by side on each of the side panels install the boards and shields replace the back and stand turn on and enjoy... don't replace the whole panels the parts are only $1.60 each you can handle the soldering i know you can so TV fixed for a hour of your time and under $10.00.... Please leave me some feedback.. thanks.

take it to sears repair shop. Most likely they will ask you almost half the price of the TV to repair it. It is a thin glass that is inside of it that is very fragile.

There is a part inside
the TV that needs to be replaced. If the TV is under warranty—whether
the original warranty from the manufacture or an extended warranty
purchased with the TV—call the company providing the warranty
coverage and they will arrange to have your TV repaired at little, or
no cost to you.
Since some brands will pay for your repair even if you're out of warranty, especially if they've heard of your problem before and it's a known issue. You should always contact the manufacture first for your full range of options. If they're willing to fix the TV for free, or at a reduced cost to you, let them!
If the TV is out of warranty, and you have the experience and you know what you're doing, you can fix the TV yourself. Purchase the service manual from the manufacture to get started. However, if you've never done anything like this type of repair before and you don't know where to start, I suggest speaking with an experienced TV repair-person.
If you decide to pay for out of warranty repair by a professional repair shop, the total cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.

Testimonial: "it was helpful thank you do you happen to know what this part is?"
That white line (usually jagged) is actuallly part of the transmitted picture. However, you are not intended to see it because it is located in what is known as the 5% overscan area. Your TVs today are more than just cable ready... they are a versital, technology filled multimedia display. You can see that line because the screen size or wide mode you are using is intended for 1080p/24 signals. You have 0% overscan with this screen size setting. This allows you to see ALL of the picture, including portions of the picture the broadcaster did not intend for you to see. You can change your screen size using the Wide feature in the Setup menu. See pg.62 of your user manual for details and descriptions of the various wide modes.
