Question about Vizio VW42LF 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

TV powers up. I get the backlite, then about 1 second of the blue box in the upper right hand corner that shows the input and channel. Then the screen goes blank but the sound continues to work. I have tried different inputs (which is hard to do without a picture) and according to the "blue" box info at power-up, I should have had them, but in all cases, sound only. Any ideas?

My philips flat screen shows no signal and #3 in right hand upper corner just happened when cat knocked over remote no sound


To which model television are you referring? It sounds like you either need to change the input method for the TV or just change to a different channel (2 or 4).

The channel information/display won't stop popping up every few seconds.


What you all need to do is get away from a coax cable connection. If you have a cable box, or satellite box, take the coax cable off and use red, white, n yellow rca composite cables to connect your recievers to the tv. if you dont have a cable box, either get one, or get a converter box and use a tuner outside of the tuner within the unit. The tuners in those tv's are built to show you when you experience signal fluctation(which is normal with a coax cable) and thats why the box keeps popping up on its own. good louck to you all with this problem

Screen blanks out int when on local channels


I had the same problem (a flashing HDMI 1 text box in the upper left hand corner of the screen every +/- 10 seconds) and rebooting the cable box seemed to help. I'd previously tried disconnecting and reconnecting the cables, but wasn't successful. I assume my problem originates with Time Warner Cable.

Green box keeps popping up in upper right corner


You should be watching your dvd's on an input and not on tv analog 3. Every time the tv "senses" a signal change in the audio that screen will pop up. Connect the DVD player to the tv by using either the red, white and yellow (composite) connections or using the green, blue, red, white and red (component). Once you are on an actual input that box will stop popping up.

Sony kv-32s42 needs help.Tuner problems?


Hi Grasshoppa, I would venture a guess that your tuner is not at fault but most probably the logic circuits controlling it since as you posted, you can tune > get a good picture but "channel numbers in the upper right hand corner ...." If your intention is to use the VCR and thereafter change channel using the VCR, you may use the Audio/Video input. With an RCA 3 cable connector, connect the (Yellow) Video out, (Red/White) L/R Audio out of the VCR to the Video in &L/R Audio in of the TV. You don't need to set the TV to Ch 3 but rather select Video 1 or 2 or A/V. Hope this be of some help/idea to you. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards

Panasonic CT-36SL13 Can't select video inputs


On a Panasonic to do a factory reset while the set is on press in on the power and action buttons on the front of the TV at the same time. In a few seconds the screen shouls go blank and come up with a screen that says "CHK" in the upper left hand corner. Once it does that press the action button again to clear the screen. You have now reset the TV to factory settings and will have to re-program the channel memory once again. Hope that works...
