"No signal" on our new Vizio screen

We just purchased a Vizio VU42L.  We hooked everything up and followed all directions, and it still is showing a "no signal" sign on the screen.  We have checked and rechecked the cables and plugs and still nothing!!  We are getting frustrated.  Any suggestions?

    I get no signal from the cable connection, but I get signal through the antenna connection using rabbit ears. I also get dvd signal and computer signal! I tried the antenna connection with the cable but still no signal! The unit is brand new never used and it was built in 2006! Not sure if it’s under warranty yet; but I’d like to know why it doesn’t get signal and if repair is simple?

    Thanks!

Try manually using the source button on the TV.  Touch the button once and a screen will com up on the TV.  Touch the source button again it will scroll down the pop-up on the screen.  Wait a few seconds each time you scroll down the pop-up.  You should get a signal when it gets to the right setting.

This would be cable, satellite, or antenna-

The pop has been generated by the explosion (literally) of an capacitor from the power board of the tv. When that happened the power source has been shorted and, if you're lucky, it went in protected mode. Fixing that is a relatively simple job - all you need is a soldering iron and a basic experience in using it. Follow this

If you're unlucky the entire source has been fried and it will have to be replaced - here's a good one

I want to know how much a Vizio VU42L FHDTV10A screen costs.


The price range is 500-800 depending where you will get it, try Ebay and look for a non-working one with a good panel (screen), it does not matter why is not working as long as the panel is in good condition.

Lost screws for stand on Vizio VU42L


If you pay for shipping I will send you my screws. Maybe a buck or two will cover it in an envelope. I just removed them last night as the TV is being junked for the parts. Email me.
