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.

I had a problem with mine shutting off randomly and (luckily under warantee still) the guy came out and replaced the mother board. If you're under warantee still just call vizio.

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.

Reset the TV to its factory settings. For more details, refer its user manual. Unplug the TV from AC mains socket, and replug it after some time, say after 2 minutes or so.

Vizio Has a big issue with all models working with each other, if either you have another vizio product in your home or a close neighbor, the remote signal is probably reaching your TV,

My Vizio shuts off after 5 - 10 minutes. When I turn it back on, it continues to shut itself off from 1 - 10 minutes. Can you tell me why this is happening and howto fix the problem? Thanks. Model: VIZIO...


Try this: on your remote will be a button labeled "menu" that should contain a list of items you can adjust...I'd look to the automatic timer feature and check to see if somehow this has been set up to turn off the TV.

No picture when on for approx 15 minutes


It sounds like you are saying the "video looks scrambled but the audio keeps playing OK"

Normally this is a Video Processor Problem that requires a Board to be replaced.

When the problem happens, can you see the TV menu or the TV's On Screen Display clearly.

I suggest checking to see if the problem happens with the video inputs like, Composite(yellow/red/black), component(RGB/yellow and black), HDMI and S-video. If it happens to all inputs then you need to replace a board.

Vizio screen went off but power light is still on


may be a mainboard problem. If you can see the orange light it usualy means that there is power running through the TV... usually inverter boards are a problem when you do not see any backlight at all.

Sounds like the power board is overheating and shutting off to prevent burn out. Check with vizio and explain your problem. a lot of vizio parts have lifetime warranties so check with manufacturer. j

Green screen vizio lcd


My 37" vizio I bought in Dec 2007 did this (green screen at start-up on all inputs). At first it went away by itself after you left the unit on for 15 minutes, but then 2 days later the whole thing DIED. Luckily Costco has a 90 day return policy on TVs.

Vizio tech support suggested this (before it died that is):
Please try to reset all setting and then to see if the problem is solved. 1. Press the Menu on your Remote Control;
2. choose Set up on the OSD;
3. then choose Reset All settings;
4. Press the Exit on your Remote Control to remove the OSD.
