You would have to do a little bit of problem solving. Does the TV work normally without the cable box? Does the cable box work on another TV? Trying these two things should help you to figure out which it is, but it sounds like an electrical problem in one of those devices, my bet it on the cable box.

My ill dads Vizio VO320E showed classic symptoms of lightening damage so we purchased a new main board. Now the screen lights up but is showing pink and yellow horizontal stripes and some vertical sha


Mr. John either one of two things from start u have done right this is a common thing on flat sets hooked to Direct boxes by HDMI having surges come from box to set. The main board usually needs replacing, so either u received a bad board or u have multiple issues and possibly the T-CON board got surged from main board. This board is located above main and power in center at very top of screen. This will cause symptom that u are describing. Hope this helps.

Hdmi cables input 1,2,3,4 which input goes to the tuner, direct tv box, blue ray on vizio E550i-AO


The choice is entirely arbitrary. You may connect any accessory to any HDMI input. I recommend you connect the device you use most (probably your direct TV box) to HDMI 1, your second most frequently used device to HDMI 2, and so on, but it's really a question of your own preferences.

Lip sync


Vizio HDTV- Lips out of sync

Anyone with a new Vizio E601i-A3 60" or 70" HDTV that is having audio "Lips out of sync problems" with a cable or satellite box.

On Comcast cable boxes (or others), here's what you need to do: FIND MENU for AUDIO or HDMI setup on CABLE BOX or Satellite Box.

FOR COMCAST

1. Turn on TV and have Cable box Turned OFF.

2. Press MENU on COMCAST REMOTE.

3. Go to AUDIO Setting OR HDMI Setting. (On cable or Sat. BOX)

4. Change setting from Auto to L-PCM. (Turn off cable box to exit)

This should resolve any "out of sync" lips to picture after commercials on HD channels.

*This is a handshaking issue from the cable box to the Vizio E601i-A3

first of all just switch off everything then switch off the mains, open the mains socket as there might have been a loose connection to the terminals which you`ve got to tighten. also confifrm that the earthing is well connected before you switch on .
swtch on the mains then switch on your devices one by one, also confirm that the VGA cable is well connected to the display unit

TV is own and I here the sound, but there is no picture. TV is a vizio HDMI HDtv 32 inch


Hi

First make certain that the HDMI is pushed into the TV all the way. Also it depends on what your source is and how you have it connected. You could be using an HDMI cable with your cable box, and the cable box could be defective. It could be a DVD player and HDMI video may be disabled. If you are just using HDMI directly from a cable box to your TV and you have audio, but no video, then perhaps the resolution is set incorrectly on the cable box - which means it's a cable box issue that you need to set your resolution to something standard, like 1080i.

Or, perhaps the HDMI cable is of lousy quality, in which case, you should pick up a new hdmi cable from a place like www.monoprice.com for not a lot of cash.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Our 42" Vizio will not display/play sounds when


Hello

One board takes in the HDMI as well as the other signals. Sometimes part of the board breaks and that is what sounds like has happend in your case. This is a fairly common problem and most people tend to just live with it. Others sell thier tv and a few find the number of thier board to see if one is available on ebay or shopjimmy. If you are comfortable with electronics the board is not hard to replace.

Im sorry your HDMI broke....

I hope this helps

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...

when you hook up the cable, what type of connection do you use? if you're using HDMI then try some other connection. Cable box seem to have HDMI connection problem. Also make sure that what ever the input you hook the device to, you have that input selected.

Vizio L32 32 in. HDTV LCD HDMI input not working


I recently had the same problem with my vizeo hdmi port # 1 going bad. Tried everything to fix and called vizeo. There solution for a master reset was turn off tv and unplug from the wall. then hold down the power button for 30 secs and let go. plug the tv back in and hold down the volume down and input select buttons down on side of the tv for 15 secs. release the buttons and turn the tv on after powering down all the components connectd to the tv. If this does not work they told me you need to have it sericed for a bad hdmi input. Hope this info helps anyone out there. It didn't work for me. Its a bummer cause the tv is well taken care of and only 18 months old. Best of luck to all others.
