My 42 also went black, and the "vizio" logo in front indicates as if it is turned on, it clicks on and off, but just has no output on the screen, meaning not a black screen, just a dead, no image, even when the system has clicked on

I tried turning off, on, unplugging, letting it sit (kind of like a reboot wishful thinking), removed all connections in back, (nothing still, not even the blue screen) just nothing.

What a shame, I had the unit less than 6 months, and now this? I have work to do, and I can't get it done.

Why cant I get tv sound


Be sure all your input cables are securely attached at both ends, make sure your internal speakers are not turned off.
Reset the TV by unplugging it for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Also if you are using a cable/satelite box reset it by unplugging it for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Do you have sound on another input such as DVD player.
if still no audio may have defective I/O-Main PCB

Look for loose contacts in power outlet, RC Jacks, sockets, cables. Change input device to some other like a DVD that you are sure works. Swith off TV, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.

What would make the t.v have lines running horizontal and not give you a picture


It could be any number of things. Try to use systematic diagnostics to trace where the fault lies. Start at input end of system to find out which bits work and which don't.
  1. Do you get a picture using a video recorder, dvd player, gaming console? If yes the problem is with your tv signal.
  2. Connect a different tv to your antenna / satelite dish /- can you get an analogue picture? If no the antenna (aerial) may be faulty
  3. Does the satelite receiver / digital terrestrial (e.g Freeview) receiver give you a picture on a different tv? If yes it could be either a technical fault with your tv or it needs retuning to the correct stations (enter setup menu and reinstall stations as per user instruction manual)

How do i get a picture thru component 2 so i can get 1080i quality. i only get a picture thru component 1.


You would need to unplug the input cables in the TV and move them to component 2 on the back. Assuming your input is at 1080i in the first place (ie, the cable box or digital satelite signal is coming in at the proper resolution). One way to check is to connect an external DVD player to the component 1 input and see if the picture is higher quality than the signal from the Cable/Satelite. Not sure changing to component 2 is going to make a difference. Good luck and let me know what happens!

TH-37PE30 - DVD picture now lousy (herringbone?)


Do you have an S Video cable connection on the DVD player? I'd try that If you have one or component (red green blue) cable or even the composite (yellow) connection. The SCART connection on the input PCB of the tv could be damaged. The cost of this board may be pricey so if you can use the other type of connections with the DVD player I'd recommend that or get a DVD player that has one of those. Your model does not have HDMI so those are your only other options. Hope this helped

Blue screen: Not Support!


It sounds like you have no signal being detected by the TV. Check your connections to the TV from your cable box or satelite reciever to be sure they're plugged in tightly. If you have a DVD player or VCR, try watching something from one of them to see if you get a picture. If you do, then your problem may be with your cable box or satelite reciever, and not the TV.
Good luck.

New Sharp Aquos LCD 46 TV


If you hooked up the satelite box to your tv Automaticly the Satelite box is the one who pick up the channels (from the satelite)
In this case your tv is acting as a monitor only. Try to connect your tv with HDMI cable or COMPONENT cable for best picture. Don't use RF antenna input to hook up your Satelite Box. Hope this Helps
