Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

After a few minutes the picture goes haywire and a loud high freq

I just bought a vizio from Sam's club and it worked fine for approx. 2 months. Now after a few minutes the picture goes haywire then black...and a loud high frequency noise scares the stew out of me. After a few minutes, the process repeats. This is a brand new 26" vizio.

Any ideas?

Hello

This is a warranty issue. Either take the TV back to SAM's club or call Vizio for a warranty repair.

Vizio 32 Inch, turn on completely fine for about 20-30 minutes. Then sound goes out accompanied by high pitch noise and picture has varying lines or colors through it. Won't power off, have to un


Are you a decent do it yourselfer? It sounds like it is the capacitors. What happens is they get hot and expand (the top of the Capacitor). The top will be dome shaped and it will look like the top is splitting open. You can buy (about $1.50 ea.) the capacitors at your local electronics store (not Radio Shack they usually don't have a high enough amp).
You will need to take the back off and look at all of the capacitors to see which ones are bad. Usually it will be 2 or 3 of the larger ones but there could be more. Next you will need a soldering iron with a fine tip and some wicking material. How could are you at soldering and de-soldering? before I go on.
If you let me know the model # of your set I can be a little more detailed also.

I have a Vizio VF550XVT1A. First problem was a flickering screen that ended with the TV turning off. I replaced both invertor boards and the TV seemed to work fine for a few weeks. Now the TV works fine...


Good day sir Alfred!!!!

If your screen turns to back after a minutes but the sounds is normal..That problem is very common to all flat panel specially to LCD TV..

OK,I need to know first if your TV having a back-light when the picture went out after a minutes.If that so the possible problem is T-CON board (this board is the responsible to produce a video on all LCD TV)..

If you don't have back-light the problem is inverter board again..But before you order or install new inverter board try to find why the inverter board gone only on few weeks after you install it..the possible problem why the inverter board faulty for the short period of time is higher/lower input voltages (24vdc) comes from power supply..try to check it using volt meter or multimeter tester..it should be read 24vdc on meter..let me know if the voltage drop or higher to 24..

If the 24vdc is fine the only problem is the condition of inverter board maybe its used or partially faulty when you buy it..

if you have more queries and clarification regarding my solution please feel free to reply on this tread...

Hope it helps..

Thanks for using fixya..

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

SV470XVT Vizio picture freezes


Hello, This seems more like an interface problem then a board issue. Which interface are you using Component Video, HDMI or , RF(F Connector)? If you are using the RF (F Connector) there might be a problem in the tuner including the RF and IF sections on the circuit board. If you are using HDMI there might be a problem in the HDMI Integrated Circuit If you are using componente video the there might be a problem in the video circuits connected to the RCA jacks of the Component video input. If I were you I would have the take the TV back to the shop and have these items checked out, because board swapping is not the proper thing to do. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83 http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com

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.

HELP PLEASE Vizio Plasma tv broken again - possible driver board?


This could cause by the power supply or the mainboard.

- If the LED stay Green when you turn on the TV. But you can not turn it off, in this case the main board has failed. Replace the mainboard will fix the problem.

- If the LED light always stay at Orange, you can not turn on of off. In this case the mainboard also has failed.

- If you turn on the TV you will hear the power supply click on the LED is green then it click off the light turn Orange. In this case the power supply has failed.

Which boards did the repair shop replace?

Hope this will help.

Television will not turn on


My 47" Vizio wouldnt turn on this morning.....had a similair problem 3 yrs ago.....this is what i did and fixed the problem myself.....apparently you have to reset TV. Here is what has worked for me. So unplug tv power cord from the tv. Hold the power button and imput button together ( located on side panel ) for approx 45 sec......plug cord back into tv. Press power button on tv and voila !!!!! Tv came back on!!! I have had my Vizio almost 5 yrs. But have to call the unhelpful customer service atleast once a year.... I hope this works for you :)
