Make sure nothing is blocking the ventilation holes around the back of the TV, and also try blocking the infrared eye to eliminate the posibility of a external signal turning off the TV.

Yes. It sounds it is in the power supply board. Something is breaking down.

SOURCE: Vizio 42 in TV LCD HDTV white line across to of

That white line (usually jagged) is actuallly part of the transmitted picture. However, you are not intended to see it because it is located in what is known as the 5% overscan area. Your TVs today are more than just cable ready... they are a versital, technology filled multimedia display. You can see that line because the screen size or wide mode you are using is intended for 1080p/24 signals. You have 0% overscan with this screen size setting. This allows you to see ALL of the picture, including portions of the picture the broadcaster did not intend for you to see. You can change your screen size using the Wide feature in the Setup menu. See pg.62 of your user manual for details and descriptions of the various wide modes.

TV shuts off after watching netflix or it starts to reboot


I have a similar problem with HULUplus - I think I'll return the TV to WalMart and try another brand. It's the second VIZIO I bought in the last 5 mos. that has had issues. The first TV had popping (sounded electrical) sounds, also cut out sometimes. Would U-Verse have something to do with it? That may be a dumb question, but who knows?

The pop has been generated by the explosion (literally) of an capacitor from the power board of the tv. When that happened the power source has been shorted and, if you're lucky, it went in protected mode. Fixing that is a relatively simple job - all you need is a soldering iron and a basic experience in using it. Follow this

If you're unlucky the entire source has been fried and it will have to be replaced - here's a good one

My Vizio just shut off and lost power it a 50 inch and dont understand why?I didnt plug anything in to it so why does this happen it wont turn back on Todd P.A.


This same thing happened in my 32 in vizio and vizio paid an HDTV tech to come out to my house to fix it. He says he ALWAYS gets calls on vizios and this same thing is always the problem. He said Vizio paid more money for the screws on the tv then they did the power board in the tv. You want to either have someone fix it or buy a new power board and fix it yourself. It took the tech 15 min from start to finish to fix my tv and he had drove 2 hours to get here.
