Question about Vizio GV42L 42 in. LCD Television
My Vizio 42" (GV42L HDTV) will turn off after about 35 - 45 minutes. I have to unplug it and then it will turn on again. Will only last about 15 minutes and repeat. Have to let it cool down entirely to get the 35 - 45 minutes out of it. Anyone else have this problem and know what is required to fix it?

SOURCE: Vizio 42" LCD HDTV audio issues
First of all go into the audio menu settings and turn off the "surround" feature off and that should fix the voices/music differences. Does the craking sound appear while watching any sorce such as cable box,sat rcvr or DVD player? If not isolate it to that input and maybe that device is giving the problem.

I have the same TV. It started doing the same. Now it will shut off completely(no yellow light). Unplug overnight doesn't seem to help but sometimes it comes back on after a day(plugged in).

there are several possibilities. first if the unit comes on and the "VIZIO" light turns white, but no picture or sound, then the main control board is most likely the issue. could be the LCD control board(s) depending on model one or two. and ultimately could be the power supply on the upper side....if the "VIZIO" light does NOT turn white, the whole power supply unit is out. after that, would have to scope the circuits to find out. Seems that the control board is the most common and tends to happen on many different sizes. new board will be around $350.00. Might get lucky and find a used one, but it MUST be EXACT part or it wont work right. if you dont find one or want to sell yours for parts, id be interested in the screen. can reach me at email@example.com. thanks, keith
