SOURCE: 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.

Adjust the system's video output settings. Select the best output settings for the TV in use.

1. Check the resolution supported by your TV.
Resolution (video mode) varies depending on the TV type. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the TV.

2. Select (Display Settings) under (Settings) in the home menu.

3. Select [Video Output Settings].

4. Select the connector type on your TV.
Resolution (video mode) varies depending on the type of connector used.

Input connector on the TV Supported video modes (NTSC region) *1 Supported video modes (PAL region) *1
HDMI 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 480p 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 576p
Component / D-Terminal *2 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 480p / 480i 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 576p / 576i
Composite / S Video *3 480i 576i
AV MULTI / SCART *4 480p / 480i 576p / 576i
*1 The video mode options vary depending on the region where the PS3™ system was purchased. In North America, Asia and other NTSC regions, 480i video mode is displayed as [Standard (NTSC)]. In Europe and other PAL regions, 576i video mode is displayed as [Standard (PAL)]. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the product.

*2 D-terminal is a connector type used mainly in Japan. The resolutions supported by D1-D5 are as follows:
D5: 1080p / 720p / 1080i / 480p / 480i

*3 Composite is the connector used to connect the AV cable that is supplied with the PS3™ system. S VIDEO is a format mainly used in Japan.

*4 AV MULTI is a format mainly used in Japan. SCART is a format mainly used in Europe. If [AV MULTI / SCART] is selected, the screen allowing you to select the type of output signal will be displayed.


5. Change video output settings.
Change the resolution for the video output. Depending on the connector type selected in step 4, this screen may not be displayed.

6. Set the resolution.
Select all resolutions supported by the TV in use. Video will automatically be output at the highest resolution possible for the content you are playing from among the selected resolutions.*
* The video resolution is selected in order of priority as follows: 1080p > 1080i > 720p > 480p/576p > Standard (NTSC:480i/PAL:576i).
If [Composite / S Video] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting resolutions will not be displayed.
If [HDMI] is selected, you can also select to automatically adjust the resolution (the HDMI device must be turned on). In this case, the screen for selecting resolutions will not be displayed.

7. Set the TV type.
Select the type of TV in use. Set when only SD resolution (NTSC:480p / 480i, PAL: 576p / 576i) is to be output such as when [Composite / S Video] or [AV MULTI / SCART] is selected in step 4.

8. Check your settings.
Confirm that the image displayed is at the correct resolution for the TV. You can go back to a previous screen and revise the settings by pressing the button.

9. Save your settings.
The video output settings are saved on the PS3™ system. You can continue on to set audio output settings. For details on audio output, see (Settings) > (Sound Settings) > [Audio Output Settings] in this guide.

Is the HDMI port 2 work? Try to turn it off and turn it back on. If it is still not working then the HDMI ports have gone bad. You will need to replace the main board.

It sounds like you did some good testing by taking your xbox to a friend's home and trying it with his TV and HDMI input. You can try a reset on your Panasonic TV and see if that restores the HDMI input functions. Note this will erase your programmed TV channels so you'd need to re-enter those.

  1. Unplug the TV for at least 15 minutes
  2. Plug it back in and you'll be prompted to go through the initial setup just like when the TV was new.
If after that you still have no HDMI function on any of the inputs, that would indicate the set needs some service by a technician.

Good luck.

Can't get the hd on my tv to work with the hdmi cable - i only have one port in the back of the tv - the tv was taken to a friends house who tried the hdmi cable through a pc into the tv and it works


if it worke at your friends house then it must be the cable or what you are trying to use via the HDMI cable some devices turn of HDMI if it has been unplugged and you have to manually turn it back on itn setting. its a bit hard to do on some as they don't have a scart socket. but if you turn of the device for about half hour and have the HDMI lead in and turn it back on it will reset to HDMI. its a surge protector.

If your model does not have an HDMI out connector (the maual indicates not all models do have this, you can purchase an HDMI card for your PCI express slot and add the functionality to your laptop.
There are also plenty of USB to HDMI converters that can turn your USB port into an HDMI port.
Hope this helps

hi,
Your TV didn't have any HDMI port. Do you mean the DVI port. do you use DVI cable or DVI to HDMI cable.
The only way to check whether the DVI port is working or not is by replacing the cable. purchase a new cable and try again.

Hi friend, see since your regular (component/composite) chord worked well so the problem is with your HDMI chord. It is losing connection with some internal wire try to use another HDMI cable if it still not works so problem may be with your HDMI port.

Composite/component cable works fine but the cost of graphics..... but still HDMI graphics are just too good...

Hope it will work for you.
