Getting no audio from speakers on a Vizio E421VA LCD HDTV, any ideas?


Do headphones work?
my guess is either the headphone socket or associated wiring/soldering is faulty or there is a faulty connector within (connector associated with the audio)

I have no signal with I turn on my tv, I have dish. It is on channel 3.


tried to reset first the dish then check if it can get signal now, if still no signal receive you can hooked up the dish to the other tv just to ensure if the cause will be in the tv. just let me know if it works, if the same problem the cause will be the dish has a problem.

We gave lost the remote for our Vizio 42" HDTV.


By manual I guess you mean the buttons on the TV and not switching the actual cables. my recommendation is to get a good new universal remote. My personal preference for my Vizio TV is the Logitech 650. Just know that you program it on a computer. It controls up to 6 devices (TV, DVD, Cable box, audio and more), is easy to program with no codes to enter. I am sure it is easier to get then a new Vizio remote though a little pricey at $60.
Hope this helps,
Cullen

bestone890,

Go into the Main Menu. From there go to System Setup (6) -> HDTV Setup (8). Make TV Type 1080i and Aspect Ratio 16x9 and select Done. Your picture should now be showing a HD picture.

Have vizio tv trying to hook audio out puts of tv/dish network for component usei nto my stereo receiver what do i do


The easiest way to connect this is to find the cable going from the receiver to the TV and disconnect it from the TV.
Connect this cable to the back of the stereo receiver where it says "in" or "input".
Next take another cable and connect it from the stereo receiver output to the TV.

Bought new Vizio 55"


Had same problem - turned off Adaptive Lumina, Backlight control, and Ambient light sensors on the Vizio advanced picture settings and the Dish remote now works. Vizio was emitting an infared signal that interfered with the Dish remote signals with these settings on. TV still works and looks just fine... But best of all Dish remote works too.

1 dish out of alignment (re-align dish),
2 faulty LNB (low noise block) on the dish (likely) replace
faulty box, even more likely

Black Rectangles on 42" Vizio HDTV LCD


Your DirecTV signal is probably too low. That would produce the small black rectangles (pixilation). Also, try replacing the cable you are using to get the signal from the DirecTV receiver.
