Try to clean whit a compressed air all the areas and then turn on you TV to see if one of the fan's doesn't work.

you need to look if you can replace the part so you can buy a new one or its just the dust..

if not it can over heat and then you will need to buy another part .


there are like $10.00

Make sure there is no dust on the fan or around it. It may be having a hard time pumping because of air flow restriction. If there is not dust and plenty of air flow, then I don't think there is anything you can personally do because the problem may be in the tv's motherboard software setup

Two vizio TV's with issues


Take them to a TV repair centre as they are complex to repair. You may find that your homeowner insurance will pay for the repairs if you can demonstrate that it was a power surge that damage them.

Visio 1080p screen went light


Our Visio 42" flat screen TV did the same thing. It didn't happen that often but sometimes it would go darker or the sound would go off until I changed the channel or turned TV Off then back On. I contacted Visio through my warranty and they sent me a flash drive to install info on my TV. Did not fix the problems. A year later before warranty ended I contacted Visio again. They sent a huge box for me to pack my TV in to send to the warehouse where they fix everything. It took about 2 wks. to get it back. Worked fine for about 4 months and the problems continued. I will not buy another Visio TV. I found out that they had many problems with several models.

P42HDTV Visio Plasma TV. The picture is bad grainy/snowy.


Doing some warranty work for Visio, I ran into this same problem. I replaced the video and power boards, among other things. Turned out to be a bad panel, which isnt viable to replace. Best to get Visio to agree they made a lemon (as all their products are in my humble opinion) and have them send you a new tv, or even better, buy a tv that is NOT a visio. You can get great deals on LG and Samsung these days, both decent quality tvs.

Power light stays red and nothing comes on on my RCA L37WD12 Flat Screen what is the problem? I guess it's getting power because of the red power light, but TV is not turning on! Please HELP


I just had my Vizio which blew up and the power light stayed on and you could not turn it off on the tv you had to unplug it and then when you plug it back in same thing all over again, no picture at all , My TV made a loud pop before this happened, paid 1700 for TV and repairs were 900, bought new TV instead, never buy a Visio, there customer service totally sucks, you get a warranty and they try to screw you with an old piece of junk refurbished TV, they tried anyway, after 2 months they finally gave me my money back and I bought a totally awesome, SAMSUMG, THE WAY TO GO!! It sounds like the same deal and if it is a Visio just do a google search and see how many people it has happened to that own a visio..steve

How do you hook up the audio from Visio flat panel to SA EX 300


Wild guess. Is the TV volume turned down and its output set to variable instead of fixed?

The fan in the tv is too loud.


Thiscan happen for two min reasons.
1. Dust
2. Fan's bearing gone bad.

Easiest way is get a compressed air can and clean the fan. (You do not need to take the TV apart)

If it did not work, replace the fan. (Will not cost you more than $20)
