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.

Hi I'm trying to hook my xbox up to a Emerson tv


Check the component video inputs. A lot of manufactures incorporate a composite video input into the green component input. (meaning try to put the yellow cable into the green input) Also, check the sides and bottom of your TV. Some TV sets have some what hidden inputs for alternate AV setups. If you only have an RF setup then you will need to buy and hookup an RF modulator. (recommend you just buy a new TV if this is the case!) If you could have listed the model number of the TV then I could check to see what video inputs you actually do have and be able to assist you better. What I would recommend though is to purchase component video cables or use an HD hookup. You will find your video gameplay to be much better.

Yes you can record any TV show HD or SD, however it depends on what connections you use and what the recorder does with the input signals. You can record HD shows but not in HD resolution if you connect using composite video (yellow RCA cable) you just get a down-converted resolution, probably 480. You must use a HDMI or a component video connection for HD BUT if the recorder cannot record HD video, it should just record it in SD resolution but it should record the input signal. DVD is not HD, you would have to go to Blu-ray for HD and there are not many Blu-ray recorders around. The hard drive has the potential to record in HD but the recorder would have to process HD signals and you would have to connect with HDMI or component video. I would say your Toshiba will record an HD show but in SD resolution. I don't think the recorder has an HDMI input or a component video input. Just composite and S-video inputs. To actually record in HD you should look at another recorder.

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.

How do I connect to Sharp HDTV and Comcast cable


Your dvd recorder only has rca, red white yellow inputs it wont allow you to record in HD, although you can play your comcast box any hd, regular digital through and record. Hook up the comcast box if HD through preferably HDMI if not get one from comcast. The HD box is the only box that allow HDMI, component and regular RCA and some RF out. This way you can play HD to your set but also record through RCA or RF again will not allow for HD record unless its TiVo. Hope this helps

Well first off i am assuming that your jvc ONLY has rf connections?
if so, the most you can do is go get an adaptor from walmart that has inputs for either svideo or components and output for rf.

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!!!

Cabling -- Panasonic LCD TV into LG DVD player (model no. DV6812P)


Take the basic Red, White, Yellow component cable -- plug it into the backside of the DVD player and plug the other side into the back of the t.v. Make sure to plug the right colors into the right sockets. If there are no available AV inputs on the back of the t.v, plug the other end into your cable box (if you have one).
