Question about Vizio Televison & Video

Open Question

The cause of a double image on lower half of vizio m43-c1 television.

So. My initial frustration is this unit is just over 1 year old and of course out of warranty. After initial research on YouTube the problem did not seem to be the screen but possibly a Tcon board. I replaced the rest of the components on the back and it still has the same double image on the lower half of the screen. Thank you for your help.

SOURCE: LNS4692D - TCON Board (seems there is a systemic issue)

You have to be very careful with the flat ribbon cables and be sure not to have an electro static discharge to the board while handling it but it is not that difficult of a repair. It is the board that is located at the top center of the back of the lcd panel. Depending on your problem, eg. line in picture, no picture with backlight.... it unfortunately only fixes about half of the units. The other half need lcd panels which are very expensive. hope this helps.

SOURCE: No power on Westinghouse LTV-46w1 Television

This kind of failure is very common; that is why I suggest that one should keep the old CRT TV, buy a converter and put them both in the garage or basement so they are handy when our s*e*x*y new sets go belly up.
With fair confidence I can say that the main power supply has failed.
If you want to try this on your own, it only will require the removal of a few screws and a flashlight.
- Unplug the set overnight. - Remove the rear housing  - Use some logic and these tips; look for a separate board with larger than average parts on it and seems closer to the power cord than others. This will be the power supply.
Check the board over for something that looks like a part number and record it. If you find more than one, one of them will be the bare board number, the second (sometimes on a sticker instead of printed directly on the board) should be the part number for the assembly.
Search for the Westinghouse service company nearest you and call them with this info. Ask if they repair these or just sell new ones. If it is the latter, don't pitch the old one, continue to look for a repair service that will take it on after you have the new one in place and can watch your favorites again. The new supply will likely cost between $90 - $150 and with a little common sense, most anyone can remove and replace these in the set. Expect any repair to cost about the same as a new supply; US technical labor costs more than Chinese assembly labor. 
These supplies can be as reliable as the primitive older type but companies refuse to use the high-grade components necessary to give them a long life so they fail much sooner than the old, less efficient kind known as 'linear' supplies.

Why did my Vizio LED TV go black?


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main digital board.

Vizio L32 stopped working.


I have seen this many times. The tv most likely has run its course. It could be the power supply or a lamp. Sounds more like a lamp, as you still have lights on your set. check around and get some prices on a lamp. you can have a local shop install it for you. or just replace the set.

Periodically the screen will start turning green, then worsen.


Per Vizio's webite( linked below), as long as you purchased the unit from an authorized Vizio dealer you have a one year warranty. You would need to contact vision to determine if the problem is a warranty type issue.
