Question about Vizio Televison & Video

1 Answer

When I turn on my Vizio, the picture is "squished" and the bottom 1/3rd of the screen is white static. The TV is only 6 months old.

The TV was working fine last night. I dont like to place blame, but cleaners came in this morning, and now the TV doesnt work.

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

SOURCE: Vizio GV42L LCD TV screen black when turn TV on first time

If you are using a set top box this might be caused by turnig the box on at the same tie as you turn the tv on or slightly after you turn the tv on.  If you are using compnent or HDMI inputs the set needs to see the signal as it is turned on to know what formt the signal is in.

SOURCE: power button is green - no blinks / no picture / no sound

Unplug it from the wall, wait 2 minutes and plug it back in. if problem still exists, its probably the main pcb.

SOURCE: My Vizio vp322 will not power on this morning

Probably the power supply has gone bad.. This happens with no warning. Sometimes it is just bad capacitors that have leaked or puffed up in the power board and a good tech can do a cheap fix by replacing them.. Other wise the PS board has to be replaced

SOURCE: 42" LG RZ42PX11 Plasma - rainbow lines on whole screen but sound

hi there.its likely that the lower y-drive panel has died.this is a very common problem with this model.the easy way is to remove the panel from the set completely,power it up and you should be greeted with the top half of the picture.this means ic failure,usually the bottom one for some odd reason.not replaceable unless you have the gear,these ics are available from dalbani(nikkai)for those interested.be extra careful with the four ribbon cables when removing/refitting.damage to these writes off the display panel.hope this helps somewhat,regards,steve.

SOURCE: Vizio makes loud static noise, picture goes fuzzy.

You should check your home wiring and grounding. Also be aware of anything that has recently been turned on when this happens. Anyone using a microvwave, cell phone, or other appliance that might be causing the interference.

My Vizio VF550XVT1A shows the picture in the top 1/4 of the screen. The bottom 3/4 is lined and static. I think it's the T-Con board. Any advice?

Hey there, I have a 6 month old vizio 32" LCD 60hz


LCD inverter module may have encountered a failure. Most common is an electrolytic capacitor failing in the power supply. Examine the board to see if any of the caps have a bloated or raised top, they should not be swollen or leaky. If so find the replacement capacitor # on line and replace. You will require a modicum of soldering skills. You indicate the tv is 6 months old.
Return it for warranty service, do not open your tv or you will void your consumer warranty.

Picture is frozen onto the screen. Tried powering off tv and cable box that did not work. Next unplugged TV and that did not work


Sounds like a burn in, this is common when some still image is left on the tv screen for sometime, the only hope is to get to a white screen or static screen and let set for awhile, like the old days when you didn't have cable or any input and the tv just frowns.
