Vizio GV42LHDTV - No video inputs

Hi


This sets RF (Cable) input works great. I get SD and HD and the pix are great. Problem is none of the Component A/V, Composite A/V or HDMI inputs work. On composite adn component, the input display screen comes up but there is no pix or sound. (HDMI video is intermittnet and audio gone.) Been trying to find service manual before I take it apart but having no luck. Is there a separate video input board that may be culprit?

Apperciate any advice anyone can give.....also saw referene to service codes, what are these?

Thanks in advance

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.

How to connect dvd player to LG RZ-32LZ55 in LCD TV


This 'TV' is really more of a video monitor. It has one DVI input, 2 SCARTS (1 RGB); component video input; composite video input; S-video, and stereo audio and RF inputs. Best picture would be using the component inputs if your DVD player has the outputs. If not you'll have to consider the S-video or composite (yellow) plugs. (Neither is HD capable....)

Have a 36 inch vizio flat screen it started about four days ago.When i switch from watching a movie on DVd back to regular picture on component 2 no picture is coming up tried chanel 3 an d4 still no...


It sounds like you aren't cycling fully.
It sounds like you are on the TV (RF/Cable) input, then you switch input to Component 1 (for your DVD) and watch the DVD, then hit the input selector again, switching it to Component 2...you need to keep switching the input until you are back on the TV / Cable input.

Hi
Just try with component input, and see whether it works fine. If it works fine with component input, the tuner section in your TV has got damaged. Soem Vizio sets will have dual tuner; one for analogue and the other for digital. Lighning stroke will damage the tuners first, than any other components inside a TV, because it has been alway connected to cable. Check the component video. If it also does not work, the mother board of your TV is faulty. Some type of fault will be repairable. If the fault is serious, you have to replace its main board istself. OK.

My new set displays only 480p SD on all my HD channels. Am I missing some settings in the menu's or is something more sinister going on? Any help would be greatful, I'm drowning watching sports!


hi,
u can enjoy full hd 1080p video through only ur tv inputs as 2 component video and 2 HDMI. the tv is seted to receive videos up to the resolution 1080p automatically (need not have any setting). just check the output of ur cable box or BD player, is it outputs full hd. if u are using the tvs internal tuner u will only get 480p.

ok

Hook up computer to tv


The Vizio GV47LF HDTV's connection bay has everything we'd expect. It includes a pair of HDMI inputs which can take 1080p sources (at 60 but not 24Hz), two component-video inputs, one A/V input with composite video and one with composite and S-Video, one RF input for cable for antenna connections, an optical digital audio output, and a VGA-style PC input for PC connections.
If you're connecting a computer, you'll probably be disappointed that the VGA input maxes out at 1,360x768 resolution (which did look pretty good) instead of the full 1,920x1,080. We did connect a PC via HDMI and got 1,920x1,080 resolution, but the image didn't look as sharp as the 1,360x768 version. Again, we believe this has to do with the lack of a dot-by-dot mode, although perhaps people playing with picture settings, either in the Vizio or in the video card's drivers, can achieve a better-looking higher-resolution computer image. All-in-all, shoppers looking for a big computer monitor would be better served by the Westinghouse LVM-47w1.

TV ranking


Hi. You could look up reviews. I personally usually never offer advice on choices, because what I like, may not be what you like..its a matter of personal preference. But in this particular case, I'd go for Panasonic. Why? Better features, better service, easier availability of parts, and better resolution.Plus some nice features. If this answers your question, PLEASE don't forget to rate as fixed. I'd really appreciate it. Enjoy your new tube!!!
