Hi there,

When you unplug the TV and leave it unplugged for an hour or more the TV will reset itself back to the original factory standards. I will check on the firmware upgrade if you will provide be the serial number and the model number that is on the tag on the back of the TV close to where the power cord is attached. When the TV is coming on and turning back off it is due to the safety circuitry in the TV detecting a problem and shutting the TV down. Actually constantly trying to start the set can cause additional damage if the problem is component related and in time the TV will fail to operate. I suspect firmware problems. These TV sets have circuitry in them similar to a computer. If the software get corrupt the firmware needs to be re installed.

Thanks

I have a 55 inch vizio flat screen. it turns on but the screen fades away.


//If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

No power on vizio E371VL


Vizio TV model E371VL turned on ok and had tv show on ch.4.
Turned on the DVD player and put movie dvd in and closed tray.
We have done thhis numerous of times and never had a problem.
This time " HDMI " was showing on top right of black screen,
then " No Signal " came up on screen, then went completely black screen. Called Vizio, they had me power off and unplug set.
Push and Hold power button on TV for 30 sec. to reset.
Replug set and Vizio (lighted) on lower front of set lighted normally dull orange. Pushed power button on remote and when set did not come on, then push main power button on side of TV. Nothing, no White " Vizio " from orange light. Is this a power supply (0500-0412-1020) problem ? Thanks, Sidney (sidneysites@yahoo.com)

Vizio 46 inch black screen on left side


Sounds like you either have a faulty LCD panel tab, failed LCD driver board, LCD/t-con panel bad connection, or a bad t-con. You will need to get a diagnoses to be sure.

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.
