Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have an brand new Vizio SV470M LCD. It was an open box purchase so the warranty in null and void. I am getting heavy pixelation on the screen and lines that run vertical on the screen. When I first turned on the TV it took a few minutes to happen. If I shut it off and turned it back on it would go away temporarily but eventually come back. Now is happening when ever I turn it on.

    Vizio told me they could not honor the warranty so that is out the window. The place I bought it from was liquidation.com. I sent them an e-mail that the manifest for the TV provided false info, so Ill have to wait and see if they can do anything.

    Do you know how much it would cost to have it repaired out of pocket? I also had a guy at a repair shop tell me that I might try popping the rear panel and re-seating all if the video connections to the boards. Do you know anything about this?

    Vizio told me over the phone that they cannot accept the warranty. What would it cost to have the panel replaced out of pocket? I had one tech guy from a local shop tell me he thought it might just be a loose connection or that the connections need to be unplugged and reseated on each internal board. Any thoughts!?!

There are lots of possible cause of the problem, it could be:

- Bad solder connection
- Burnt Integrated Circuit (IC) or capacitor.
- Automatic format switcher is not working properly.

You really need to consult a TV technician to identify which component is bad.

Have a great day!

The panel is going bad. Or that is, it sounds like it has gone bad. I had a samsung lcd tv that was brand new in the box and within a month it was replaced twice by samsung. There is always a bad apple in the bunch.

Even though it was an open box and the store you bought it from won't honor the warranty, the manufacture still will. A warranty is a warranty regardless of whether it came in a box or not. As long as you have a receipt, and the purchase was within a year, they will fix it. They don't need to know it was an open box.

Try unplugging all units involved for a while--make the HDMI connection when they are disconnected from power--HDMI does not like being hooked up to units that are powered and or on.

In most of the case, the problem is a defective display LCD panel, this problem in some terminology is called PIXEL RETAINING, it means the pixels are locked up, there is no good permanent solutions for it, you have to change the LCD panel.
