Screen flashing ribbons of color over picture

I have had my tv 2 years it is a 26" vizio i bought at wal-mart. its been an awesome tv until last week when all of a sudden the screen started flashing several series of colored lines on and off across the screen. not distoring the picture but over the top of it. it did not effect the sound either. I have 2 hdmi ports so I plugged it into the other port and same thing! i removed the hdmi and hooked the standard grey cables up (blue,green,yellow, red & white. no flashing. but now the tint is way off and can not be adjusted. Is it my TV or is it the Cable Box?

My input source screen keeps popping up and scrolling through the options - once I select source (example TV) the TV will come on then the input source comes back on and keeps scrolling on its own


My new 4K Vizio 60" M60-C3 started scrolling through input channels on it's own and after a minute would stop and "land" on an input, then I would have to change it to the correct one. Then the volume started "racing" to 100 making it impossible to watch. Vizio repairman came and replaced a small board about 1.5 in. x 5 in. and it is back working again. It fell within the 1 year warranty, so no charge, and he suggested I go back to Wal-Mart where I bought it and spend $59 on the extended warranty. I am certainly going to try and do that.

Have a VIZIO HDTV flat screen and there is a spot on it (unsure how long it has been there) What is a good cleaner I can use without harming the screen.


If it is a spot of a foreign substance, take a trip to Wal-Mart and look in the electronics section for LCD cleaning wipes, they are about $2. They work wonders for me!

Happy New Year!

Feedback is appreciated!

TV won't power up


Likely a failed fluorescent backlight or the inverter that supplies the high voltage to it. I'd like to suggest a potential source for parts or service but the earlier authorized service company was Initial Technology and their webiste is no more so the company is probably defunct. Ilo was sold only by Wal-Mart and our 32HD failed after 6 weeks and when returned after several weeks from repair, had the LCD panel damaged which didn't show up until we tried using it full screen and saw the flaw.
You may have some luck here:
Possible Ilo parts source
Otherwise, I'm afraid your friend is just another victim of a Wal-Mart junk supplier.

Suddenly began leaking and overheating, such as too hot for demin but only set of min. Last time this happened I bought a new iron. The new one has been dropped - last year but nothing recently and this...


The iron started leaking from front and back. took iron back to Wal Mart and got another iron and it did the same thing. I cannot use the iron because it is hard to hold the steam almost burn your hands because it leaks a lot all over my cloths . I was so disgusted with the iron until I just put it in the corner and bought another iron from wal mart. I did not know if they would take the iron back , because I had it for a bout (3) months.
