SOURCE: Power is there, but TV won't turn on

stored voltages are high no touching these circuts becuase they hold charges and alot of screws.
fualty capacitors you say after a while it stays on theres a full charge in the unit theres some type of discharging effect on the set after its off for a while. voltage goes to low or unstable after it is off for a while. your better off getting the service docs for this set if you want to diy..other wise get a tv tech to check it for you. hope this helps

SOURCE: Vizio VX32L The screen goes white,no response from buttons

G'Day!

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.


I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

SOURCE: Vizio 42 in TV LCD HDTV white line across to of

That white line (usually jagged) is actuallly part of the transmitted picture. However, you are not intended to see it because it is located in what is known as the 5% overscan area. Your TVs today are more than just cable ready... they are a versital, technology filled multimedia display. You can see that line because the screen size or wide mode you are using is intended for 1080p/24 signals. You have 0% overscan with this screen size setting. This allows you to see ALL of the picture, including portions of the picture the broadcaster did not intend for you to see. You can change your screen size using the Wide feature in the Setup menu. See pg.62 of your user manual for details and descriptions of the various wide modes.

SOURCE: My Tv wont turn on, the standby light stay orange,

Hi, l had the same problem. HAD !!
l bought a universal remote control (5 euro), but unfortunetly no codes for Acer in it.
Then l did the setting up by auto search and YES : there was a code. But, wheeehh, it did not work.
A little bit sad l took the Acer control and guess what: it worked again!!!!! l guess the TV had a total reset, and l use only the Acer remote control now.....

Hi well what's happening is that the "Protection circuitry" in the SMPSU has/is detecting a potentially catastrophic fault, and to stop a fire AND EXPLOSION OR INDEED BOTH, IS ATTEMPTING TO SHUT THE SET DOWN FOR SAFETY REASONS, HOWEVER AFTER IT SHUTS DOWN, THE "FAULT" APPEARS TO "GO" AND THEN THE SMPSU STARTS UP AGAIN , ONLY TO DETECT THE FAULT AND SO ON... USUALLY ENDLESSLY OR UNTIL COMPLETE FAILURE OCCURS.
What to do, well in all reality DIY is NOT feasible unless one has LOTS of experience, test gear, tools, isolation transformer, and a service manual. So, contact the local or head office from VIZO, ask them for a referral to an authorised service center, hopefully a local one? in any event, make face to face contact here and ONLY ask first for a "Quote" as to prospective costings and go from there, this way at least you can make up your mind as to repair or replace?

Have a Vizio VX37L that when it is turned the


HERE'S THE FIX: I just went through this with my Vizio VX37L. TV is stuck in RGB input. This is the fix.... TV is stuck in RGB input.
(option 1) Power on TV, and press the INPUT button repeatedly and rapidly until you can change to a different input, such as AV.
If that doesn't work, try:
(option 2) With the TV off, press and hold the INPUT button on the side of the TV for about 5 seconds. The TV should power on and the input list will appear. The TV will no longer be locked, and the INPUT button should function properly after that.

Option 2 worked for me!
