If the screen is flashing, I will not turn it on any more since the problem can be in the power supply and it may cause more damage, look there first since it is easy to get too.

Vizio tv model xvt553sv vizio binks on front of tv white and orange stops on orange and stars to blink again did reset no change


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Vizio is known for problems very early on. You may have a bad panel or bad driver boards. What is the power light doing when it shuts off? how many times does it blink?

My vizio flat screen led television continually blinks now. I have reconnected all the cables again, I tried other outlets, I bought a new hdmi cable, the only thing I haven't done yet is throw it through...


First of all, please provide the model number of this VIZIO and what else that you have attached to this TV, such as cable box, DVD player, etc. You also mention HDMI cable, it is for the DVD, or for the cable box.
Second, the blinking symptom. Is the Power LED indicator is blinking or the LCD screen is blinking ( show pictures and goes black on and off?
It is hard to do the research without having the details for us to see if we can help you or not.
And do the sound also come and go?
Is the TV still under warranty? Does VIZIO offer any solution?

Hey I'm trying to program my Comcast remote to control a Vizio VHT510 sound bar sound system bought at Costco. Any ideas if there is a way do do this?


After much research, here is a step-by-step for getting your Vizio Soundbar to work with the Comcast remote using EFC codes (mine is the newer charcoal grey one, works great!)


Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 11144 (2 blinks)

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00169 - Vol Up - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00168 - Vol Down - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00037 - Mute - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00165 - Power - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00164 - Input - Should get 2 blinks


These are optional, I didn't use them:

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00036 - <button to use for TVOL> - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00101 - <button to use for TSHD> - Should get 2 blinks


Then set the volume control on the remote and other settings according to the Remote's manual.


ENJOY!! Hope this helps someone...
