SOURCE: I have a 55 Vizio 3D smart tv. This picture color fade in and out to the point that I cannot watch tv. I this a problem with the main board?

Hello Patricia,

  • There is a loose soldering connection in the Main Board. That happens because the components on the are generating a lot of heat therefore melting solder connections.
  • Stop beating on the TV's back, that only makes the problem worse.
  • Take it to a shop.Or if you are a tech, try locating the loose connection(s) and solder it back.
  • Also check your Warranty Period, It may cost you 0$. Call Vizio if you still have Warranty on the TV.

How to find out what printed circuit board is causing tv picture outage? Vizio m3d550kde. Vizio logo blinks 19 times.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Received a brand new one but came with no instructions how do I program it?


I believe that this remote was originally shipped with the Vizio M3D470KD and the M3D550KD. Here is a link to the M3D470KD / M3D550KD instruction manual. Maybe in this manual you can find some information to help you out.

Why no answers for thin black lines on panel of vizio M3D550KD 55 inch tv


Of course it can be repaired. Do U wanna spend the money?

The circuit board that is responsible for vertical deflection has an intermittent condition responsible for the anomaly. If you locate the board you might want to check for the signs of a faulty capacitor.

If all looks dynamite, checking for a bad cap can be an ordeal and maybe the best way to go is simply replace the board in question.

Vizio remote won't control tv


I just had the same problem. I call Vizio and this is what they had me do that did fix the problem.
1. Unplug the TV
2. Hold down the power button on the TV for 30 seconds (yes, with it unplugged and do not plug it back in yet.)
3. Take the batteries out of the remote.
4. Press each button remote twice to ensure that they bounce back and are not stuck.
5. Place new batteries into the remote.
6. Plug the TV back in. Not into a power strip if possible. ( I did not have an available outlet so I used a power strip.)
7. Try turning the TV on using the remote. (My TV turned on. All of the functions worked - problem fixed.)
Hope that this helps.
