    I bought mine at Sam's Club, too. I don't think I have any extra coverage on my warranty and mine was bought June 2008. If you find out what they have to fix, please let me know. Maybe I can buy the part myself. I have a very limited income. I actually was able to purchase my VISIO with money from the stimulus in 2008. I could use some help if you find out anything. Thanks

I had the same problem, ended up being a power issue cause by the power company line to my house. it was not getting full power so it was flipping out. Call the electric company since some items in the house stopped working. They can to the pole and fix a wire there and it was fixed.. I hope yours is so to fix like mine was..

    Good news for me -- I purchased mine from Sam's Club and they upgraded me to the 'plus' membership at time of purchase, which means I have an extra one year of warranty. The repair guy is coming on Monday the 14th. I'll post again after he fixes it.

Sound but no picture


Dim the lights in the room, grab a bright flash light. Turn on the set and shine the light on the screen. Do you see a faint picture? If you do, you have a backlight problem. Let me know what you find

My Vizio VX42L is flashing like a strobe light.


Mine did the same thing. Remove the stand and back of the tv. Be careful with screen do not lay on hard surface and scratch. When you take the back off you will see a board on the left side and a board on the right side. They are labeled slave and master. Remove the ribbon cables and take board out. There are 2 capacitors on each board (about an inch long). These are probably all bad (ends bulged a little with black stuff on bulged end). Radio shack has them for less than $2.00 each. turn the board over and you can read the size of the capacitor. You need someone who can use solder wick and remove all four capacitors and solder in new ones. Notice how the capacitors are turned. Each one is labeled with a dash for negative. Make sure you bend new capacitor connectors the same and put back in the same way. Put the boards back in the tv and attach all ribbon cables. Put back and stand on. hook up your power and cable box and you are ready to watch tv with no more strobe. Me, my husband, and son did ours last week. I looked up the problem on the internet, husband removed stand & back, son with the steady hand did the soldering. Family project that went well for once.

Flashing picture


I had the same problem with my 237V, I had to replace the power supply to fix the problem. I believe when it would work the output voltage of the power supply was around 19.2v. When the screen started to strobe the voltage had jumped up to 21.5V. A new power supply fixed it for me but now I think my main board is on the fritz.

My hayward colorlogic pool light flashed like a strobe light. After repeatedly turning it off and then on again, it now will flash light for less than a second and then turns off. Spa colorlogic works...


You should check your ground fault and reset if necessary. This particular swimming pool light should cycle through a variety of different light shows by turning the switch on and then off for no more than 10 seconds. If it is not cycling properly, you might be leaving the swith off for longer than 10 seconds or your bulb might have malfunctioned.

Flash problem


That is normal operation, if poped up, the flash fires rapidily in low light to assist the auto focus, on a plain white wall, it can't focus, see the manual on AUto Focus limitations.
