VIZIO GV42LFHDTV10A loud tone/buzz frozen function

VIZIO GV42LFHDTV10A is over 1 year old but have had problem for a while-severe buzz or tone takes over. The picture remains but no other audio can be heard other than this loud tone. Have to unplug the tv to fix because no other buttons will function when this happens. Also the channel +/- buttons quit working-even on the remote. Tried changing batteries but to no avail. the only way to change the channel is pressing the numbers on the remote...God forbid the remote goes missing! Tonight i turned it on and there is a tone in the background but not as loud as the first mentioned tone. And I can hear the program audio and the buttons function ok. This thing seems to be going downhill rapidly! Any suggestions! Help!

Makes a LOUD Loud buzzing sound, picture goes crazy, then tv shuts itself off. Bought from Walmart 3/31/10 do I return to walmart? Or go through vizio one year limited warranty?


If you return it to Walmart you stand a good chance of getting it replaced. If you utilize the warranty, at best it will be repaired depending upon what the word "limited" means.
Hope this helps.

42in Vizio black screen, no sound


I had the same issue happen to my vizio lcd just this weekend. Everyone is telling me is a bulb or backlight or something. It would explain the loud pop and no picture, but I'm not getting sound either so I'm not sure what exactly happened. Only after about 2 years too. I'm trying to find parts to just fix it myself.

Pioneer Plasma - PDP-5070 - no picture with loud buzzing


Sounds like power supply problem, water could have caused it or it could've had a heart attack, leave it off for a few hours then retry (in case by some stroke of luck its water and hasn't caused major damage), if not, needs to be repaired by a pioneer agent.

BUZZING SOUND WHEN RUNNING


It sounds as if there is something in the bottom part of the dishwasher arm (it sprays the water around the bottom of the dishwasher). I would suggest that you take out the baskets and then remove and clean all of the parts that water comes out of as well as the bottom drain. If this works or does not, I would also suggest that you run an empty load using 1/4 cup vinegar. Hope this helps!

Loud buzzing noise when turning on


It sounds like a bad internal connection or a component failing. If the picture still is very good take it to a known good repair shop.

G.E. Spacemaker XL1800- Loud constant buzzing noise. Help


My microwave was totally dead. Things I discovered: 1) There is an easily replacable fuse accessed by taking off the top front vent cover (two screws on top, gently massage off) and then the inside plastic grill. UNPLUG before doing this! 2) Pop off two wires on either end of fuse holder for safety. Then pop out fuse and replace. For more extensive help, there is an evelope with a wiring diagram inside the case on the inside wall! Very helpful when diagnosing the surface lamp problem (I forgot to plug the ballast back in when I closed up the bottom).
