Vizio lcd screen flashing

I am having the same problem with my 1 year-old Vizio. It seems to happen when the TV has been on for a while and then it just starts flashing just like a strobe light. Did you find the solution?

    I think mine is a 37 inch. It's only a year old, so I would rather try to fix it than buy a new one yet.

    wich model i have had same problem with a 32 inch and went to buy a new one and havent had any problems with it

    I posted above a few years ago. I wanted to comment that we found out what was happening, but didn't really find a solution. It only happens if something else is attached to the TV - like a DVD player or game station. If those are unplugged from the TV, it works fine, and is still working today.

A software upgrade may resolve the issue if not the main Pcb. would need replacement.

Contact LG during normal business hour 8-6 central time.

SOURCE: 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.

Power Supply popped a cap and fried the metal resistor bank. Replace the cap C241 and solderer the resistor bank. Worked for two months then pop out again. This time the resistor bank burnt through. Bought a new power supply DPS-38cp-1a from ShopJimmi.com $56.00 Replace supply which lasted 1 year 1 day and the same thing happen. Same components. Got this TV free but its costing me time and money now.

Screen starts to flash like a strobe light


It sounds like you may have some bad filter capacitors in the power supply. The "easy" fix could be to replace the power supply board. These capacitors can act up as they warm up.

42in Vizio black screen, no sound


I had the same issue happen to my vizio lcd just this weekend. Everyone is telling me is a bulb or backlight or something. It would explain the loud pop and no picture, but I'm not getting sound either so I'm not sure what exactly happened. Only after about 2 years too. I'm trying to find parts to just fix it myself.

No picture when on for approx 15 minutes


It sounds like you are saying the "video looks scrambled but the audio keeps playing OK"

Normally this is a Video Processor Problem that requires a Board to be replaced.

When the problem happens, can you see the TV menu or the TV's On Screen Display clearly.

I suggest checking to see if the problem happens with the video inputs like, Composite(yellow/red/black), component(RGB/yellow and black), HDMI and S-video. If it happens to all inputs then you need to replace a board.

Vizio screen went off but power light is still on


may be a mainboard problem. If you can see the orange light it usualy means that there is power running through the TV... usually inverter boards are a problem when you do not see any backlight at all.
