SOURCE: VIZIO TV Black screen. Cannot turn off TV without unplugging.

I had a similar problem after having a Vizio for 2 and a half years. I left the room for a minute, i came back and the screen went black. I didnt hear an arcing sound though. There was still power to the unit and you could see that the back light was working, just no picture, no sound, and you couldn't use any of the buttons. The only way to turn it off was to unplug it. It would then start up, with the Vizio logo going from orange to white, and then do the same thing all over, no pic or sound. I would check the ceramic fuse first on the board that gets power from the plug.

HOW I FIXED MINE: I ordered a new "main PCB" from tigerdirectparts.com (you can also use searspartsdirect.com). This is the circuit board with all of the inputs on it (hdmi, cable, etc.) I opened it up, disconnected the old one, put in a new one and now it works fine.I used both serial numbers on the board to search for it online. It cost me $144 to do it, but that's better than $450 for a new TV. My tv is the vx32l hdtv10a. I hope that helps.

How do I set my Vizio tv up so it will let me watch movies on a Sony DVDs player


Assuming the DVD player has an HDMI port, run an HDMI cable from the DVD player to an available HDMI port on the TV. Let's say you have your TV service going to HDMI #1 on the TV, you can run the DVD to HDMI #2. When you want to watch a DVD, you must select the input/source on the TV remote to change it to HDMI 2(or whichever port you used). When ready to watch TV again, use the same button to change back to HDMI 1 (or whichever HDMI port you used for TV service). If you do not have an HDMI port on the DVD player, then you must use whatever type of connection it has and connect to the corresponding port(s) on your tv, Then follow same directions as above regarding choosing the input/source on the TV remote.

Want to put computer movie on tv


Sort of depends on the TV connections? Your laptop specs list a VGA prot and a HDMI port. What does the TV have? HDMI? VGA? Do you have the cables? Does your TV have a USB port? If so, you can put the Movie on USB. Does your TV have a Wireless Adapter? If so, you can add/share your videos from a Home Network. There are option but without the TV info, I can't give a informed solution.

Trying to connect hdmi cable to laptop to watch movies


Are you sure you have four hdmi ports? I have only one hdmi port and three usb ports. Be sure you are connected to the hdmi port and for some reason not a usb port.

How to connect dish tv to my laptop? It has inbuilt tv tuner.


Your Lenovo laptop can be hooked up your TV if you have a model that is capable of TV output. Newer models with HDMI ports can easily connect to newer TVs that have HDMI input jacks. For older laptops or TVs, you will need other adapters or cables. The most common of these is an S-video jack, which has a small round connector with several pins arranged in a circle. For S-video connections, you will need to hook up the audio from your laptop to your TV separately.

Things You'll Need

HDMI cable

USB-to-HDMI adapter

OR

S-video cable

Audio cables

HDMI Connection

Turn on your Lenovo laptop and HDMI-enabled TV.

Connect one end of your HDMI cable to the HDMI port on your laptop. Lenovo's IdeaPad series has these ports. If you have a ThinkPad or other Lenovo model, connect a USB-to-HDMI adapter to your HDMI cable, then plug the USB end of the adapter into any USB port.

Press the "FN" and "F7" keys on your keyboard. This will switch the laptop's display to the TV. You can then use your TV screen as a monitor or use the laptop's DVD drive to watch movies on your TV.

S-Video Connection

Turn off your laptop and TV. Connect your S-video cable to the laptop on one end and the TV on the other.

Plug audio cables into your audio out jacks on the laptop. If you do not have stereo audio output, you can use the headphone/speaker jack. Add a splitter adapter to split the sound into stereo instead of mono (single speaker). Plug the other ends of the audio cables into your TV.

Turn on the laptop and let it boot up. Then turn on the TV. Right-click on your desktop screen, then select "Properties."

Click the "Settings" tab, the "Advanced" button, then "ATI displays" or "Display device" or the similarly worded option, depending on your system. It is not the "On screen displays" option in any version.

Click on the option that suits your system, such as "TV" or "LCD." Click "Apply," then "Yes" to confirm, if necessary. Click "OK" to exit. Your display should be visible on the TV screen. If not, try pressing "FN" and "F7" to toggle the display to the external screen.

Connecting a new vizio bluew ray player. No signal being received on tv when connecting into usb port


You should never connect a Blue Ray or DVD player to a TV through a USB port. Use a scart/composite/component/HDMI connection to connect the player to the TV.

HDMI would be the best connection possible, but most devices don't come with a HDMI cable. Go to any electronics store and pick up a HDMI cable for about 10 dollars/euros. Don't pay for overly expensive (I'm looking at you, Monster Cables) as they are a giant waste of money.

Can I connect my Toshiba NB 205 to my TV to watch etflix movies? the netbook has a VGA out, and the TV has S-cable and HDMI inputs. Thanks!


Interfaces 1 x Display / video - VGA - 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) , 1 x Network - Ethernet 10Base-T/100Base-TX - RJ-45 , 1 x Microphone - Input - Mini-phone 3.5 mm , 1 x Headphones - Output - Mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm , 3 x Hi-Speed USB - 4 pin USB Type A

The above interfaces are in your laptop. There is no S-cable or HDMI interface.
If your TV have VGA port you can connect your TV to the VGA port in laptop. This will alow you to convert the TV as monitor.

I try to connect my hdmi cable to my laptop with a vizio hdmi cable and the tv says not format... how do i address this issue


The input which you are using sounds like a USB port (which is looking for a virtual drive that needs to be formatted). Double check to make sure your laptop actually has an HDMI input (most laptops do NOT). The USB ports are different than HDMI.

I just hooked up my HP Pavilion 9000 Laptop to my Vizio TV and put the TV on correct setting. It is not working on the TV, any ideas? I went on Display setup and kept trying to connect but it says the...


If your laptop has a VGA port, your Vizio needs to have a VGA port too so you can use a standard VGA monitor cable.

If your laptop has a DVI port, you hook it up to the Vizio using a DVI-to-HDMI cable.

And if your laptop has an HDMI port, you hook it up using a standard HDMI cable.

Hope this helps.
