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.

    You're a FRICKIN ROCK STAR!!! I followed your advice and replaced all four caps with ones I matched a Radio Shack and four under $20 for all supplies (less than $ for Caps alone) and my Vizio VXLHDTV10A is working like a charm.

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.


I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today!


Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

SOURCE: Vizio 42 in TV LCD HDTV white line across to of

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.

My coby flatscreen comes on and works but strobes flashing light but works good just with strobing light ! whats going on?


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

First, try setting all display settings to default or 'normal' or 'standard' and disable any picture processing functions. If your TV is LED backlit then the LED dimming function may not be working correctly (dimming is done by rapidly switching the LEDs on & off).
