Try to connect an audio amplifier to the audio output, if the sound is good, it might be your speaker or check for a cold solder into the audio output board and check a leaking capacitor into the audio board. Just follow where your speaker wire connected to the board to find the audio circuit. Good luck.

Why does my vizio m420sl go from green to colred static


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Vizio vp422 orange light stays on wont power up


I would double check the capacitors on the power supply board. Make sure you don't have any that are bulged at the tops. Secondly, when you try and turn it on, does the orange light flash at all??

Turn on TV and picture and sound are great for about 60 seconds. Then the picture disappears but sound remains.


I would start with checking the power supply 12vdc output, make sure it is stable with no ripple. If the power supply checks out fine, I would then suspect the main board.

I have a vp42 I have sound but no picture nothing black like it didnt turn on. I can hear it but cant controll the sonud.


Hi,
I would check to confirm that all cables in the back of the TV and other items attached to the TV via cable are all fully secured into the sockets, push them to make sure they are fully connected.
Next I would suggest looking for a source button on the side of the TV and going through all the different inputs to make sure you are on the right one. Also confirm that all the devices are turned on. If this fails to work check to confirm on any channel that a picture will appear, even if it is white noise or other information text displayed by the TV it's self to make sure the screen panel is not broken.
Thanks,
Ash.

After turning on the 42" Vizio, the sound turns off


One week old? did you ever think about taking it back to the store where you bought it?? would be my first choice. unless you want a bunch of crazy answers or taking it to an authorized repair shop and waiting a few months for parts to come in and more time for the repair to take place.
