Question about Vizio Televison & Video

1 Answer

My 3 year old climbed on the counter and got ahold of a bottle of disinfectant and proceeded to clean my 65in. Vizio tv with it. It dripped down in the front and now it has no picture, just vertical lines shooting up it. I unplugged it hoping it will dry out. What part could it have damaged? Or if I replace the t-con board, power supply board, main board or the Led driver will any of these fix the issue?

It rather depends on where the liquid went. However I don't think it will have done the LED screen itself any good at all. And if that is the case the TV is probably a right off. A visual inspection of the boards might help, but you might finish up replacing all the boards! In such case a new TV might work out cheaper. Are you covered for accidental damage at all?

    No coverage that I know of. I think I had a 2 year warranty but I doubt it covers that. However, I found a complete kit with every board in it for a pretty decent price. So if i were to replace all the boards, would it fix the problem or is there more to the screen operating than that?

    Replacing the boards, providing there is no screen damage might solve the problem. Make certain you wipe dry and clean any of the wire connections before fitting the boards in place. You don't want any trace of the bleach around. Be careful not to touch the boards with your hands, due to static discharges from you to the parts. Use either insulated gloves or an earthing strap, which you can buy cheaply.
    The warranty would not cover it and is of course void once you go inside the unit. I was thinking of household insurance.

    There is no visible damage to the outside of the screen that I can see. I haven't taken it apart yet and I'm not a repair lady so I'm not exactly certain what all the screen consists of. It powers up and has back lights just no picture, only vertical lines that flash around and then it goes blank. I don't really know how it all operates. I've fixed my old dlp projection tv so I guess I'll learn something new when I operate on this one.

Logic Control D Board got nothing to do with this problem. This is your main power supply gone bad(usually not the sub power supply). I just repaired my VIZIO by replacing main power supply. Just remove back cover and your board will be right in the middle of the screen. Just get board part/serial # and google it. My best price was through eBay(around $100). Everything is fine now.

You either have a bad t-con board or the screen is bad. Check to make sure all the ribbon cables are seated fully and connected. Even replacement parts can be bad sometimes, new and used both.

In fact; you have to replace the display panel too to make the TV a new one. Contact any service technician. It will be best.

Need help please. Why has my Vizio TV malfunctioned? And what are my options?

It sounds that the T'Con board [Timing Control Board] to your TV is faulty. But before confirming it, just re-seat all the flat cable connections from it to LCD panel. You must have knowledge in electronics to proceed. Otherwise, seek help of any experienced service technician.

Rascal scooter mo 655 motor stops going up hills

the batteries could be the problem, is it possible to try some other batteries, silly question , how steep is this hill ? remember scooters cannot climb steep hills as the motor will shut down due to the increased load.

1 Year old batteries ok ? but if they get used on a non daily basis and are not fully charged after use, I would question the batteries but again the motor could be overloading,

How much do you weight ? sorry for the personal question but it all loads the motor and that increases the current and that will cause the motor controller to shut it down.

Danby counter top dishwasher

CLR should do the trick, read instructions on back of the bottle. Also there are some dishwasher cleaners that you buy.

I bought one at Safeway. Small bottle, has a picture of a dishwasher on it. It has a wax seal that melts when you run it on the hottest cycle upside down. It cleans the inside of the dishwasher.

Of course this is assuming that its build up.
