Question about Vizio L37 Television

2 Answers

I have a Sharp Aquos that has bright green areas where the black/dark areas should be. This starts after having the TV on for only a short period of time. Also when this occurs, the picture becomes grainy. Why?

Unfortunately, but the problem is related, as it is possibly your console's GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) is failing and will need to replaced, sorry to say u but this is causing u those green areas in ur television...

ONE: First thing to do is a hard reset. Merely unplug the power cord for 4 hours, then power up again.In order to dissipetate the remaining current stored in the memory.

TWO: If the reset does not help, try disconnecting anything on input 2. For example, if you have a dvd player connected to that input, the tv may be sensing its presence and switch over to it. (Especially, if the device is left ON.)

THREE: It is possible the controller IC is defective and is wandering around (electronically speaking). In this case, the set would need to be seen by a tech who can get inside and test the circuitry that controls the function switching. Lugging a big set like this into a shop is not easy, but is will save you lots of money compared to having them come to your home.
Let me know if you need more....

Hope this may help;

Regards,
VOTIT

Flicker


I have the same problem when going to dark scenes from a bright scene or during channel changes. Sharp sent a tech under warranty and he installed new software to no avail. He called sharp tech support and they suggested turning on opc. The TV works fine but you must adjust sharpness and contrast to achieve an acceptable picture. I paid $868.00 for the set a Sam's club and will buy an extended warranty. I will not buy another sharp. My 40" sony works perfectly.

Shine a bright light on the screen, do you see the image (but very very very dark)? If so, its either a bad inverter or lamps, which are only sold with the LCD panel as an assembly, which is very expensive (more than the TV is worth).
