It seems to me that some electrical component on one of the boards must not me making a connection until the tv warms up. What board should I consider replacing?

How do i get a movie to play from computer to the tv with hdmi


If your TV has an HDMI input - connect up the computer to the TV with an HDMI cable.
Select HDMI on the TV inputs.
Play the DVD on the computer, should appear on TV is Input is set. Sound may be a fiddle ~ check you PC sound settings if there is none.
The computer will usually show a blank screen when the HDMI is going elsewhere,
Good luck

55" vizio flat panel tv with sound and no picture what is wrong


Show a torch light on the screen from a safe distance, when program runs. If you can see the picture, the problem is with the backlight and might require the attention of a qualified service technician. Also try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

I had a power surge at my house, after that happened none of my HDMI inputs work. All others do work, this is on a 55" Vizio


Might need a new main unit or power supply, not 100% certain. Try out a company named ShopJimmy.com for parts, I've used them with great success in the past. I included a link to their site from your model page. Hope that helps!!

I want to purchase the replacement LCD screen (just the part) for a 55 inch LCD vivio VF550M. My grandson cracked it with the Wii remote while bowling because he was not wearing the wrist strap. Looking...


Not going to happen. Those screens are the most expensive part of a TV as well as the most fragile. It would never survive shipping without the hard bezel around it. Sorry to say you are going to most likely be shopping for a new TV.

If anyone will sell just the panel, it would be Vizio, but they will most likely require you to ship them the TV which will cost more money and may not be covered by your warranty.

Seriously, often the cost of replacing the screen is high enough to just spend the money buying a new TV.

Where do to plug in the cord to connect the tv to the DVD player?


Hello

You have several options for connecting your DVD player to your GV42L FHDTV10A - HDMI,

Component, S-Video and Composite (AV) inputs. Based on your home theater configuration, you can
decide which option is the right one for you.
connected to the HDMI input of the VIZIO GV42L FHDTV10A for optimal results.

To maintain the display quality, use a VIZIO certified HDMI cable available up to 10 meters or less.

1. Turn off the power to the LCD HDTV and DVD player.

2. Connect a HDMI cable to the HDMI output of your DVD player and the other end to the HDMI

Input (white color area) at the rear of the LCD HDTV.

3. Turn on the power to the LCD HDTV and your DVD player.

4. Select HDMI using the INPUT button on the remote or side of the LCD HDTV, or directly by
pressing the HDMI button on the Remote Control.

a) If you are already using the HDMI 1 input for another component, or you do not want to use

the HDMI 1 input for the DVD player, you can connect the DVD player to the HDMI 2

connection.

b) Refer to your DVD player user manual for more information about the video output
requirements of the product.
OK
