Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My 40" Vizio LCD television has been having a problem where when it is turned on at times the picture does not diplay but the sound does. Usually I could just turn it off and back on and the picture would then display. This may have happened 3-4 times. Last night it happened again and I wnet through the similar process and the picture returned. This morning when we went to turn it on the picture would not come up regardless of how many times that we turned it on and off.

That sounds like an LCD panel or the part that sends the electrical signal to it..The TV sends small electrical signals through the panel with small variations which cause the picture to appear.If either one of those goes bad,the picture will disappear.Since you were able to get a good picture with a couple of tries,I would say the emitter died.It didn't quite want to get working,but it did.Then it finally said okay,uncle!Please let me know how you make out.As I said,it could be either,but I lean towards emitter.Good luck!

Black screen with sound


My 47" LCD Smart T.V. was working fine last night. I got up this morning and I have sound but no picture. The VIZIO icon lights up as usual but I get no picture, only sound. From the time I turned it on, nothing appeared on the screen. I have already tried unplugging it for a while and still nothing.

Vizio SV470M Issue Sound No Picture


Do you have backlight? If you do, you have a bad main logic board. Very common with vizio and are hard to find. They are usually out of stock everywhere.

Multiple problems with Vizio Galevia GV42L


I have the same problem and it is just livable.  Turn on/off a couple of times and it will be OK.  Interestingly, The Samsung 40" LCD has a powersupply (bad capacitor) problem that seems to mimick this problem  There is a huge thread elsewhere on this Samsung issue, do a search.  Let me know if there is an explicit solution for this.

42" Vizio LCD


Emilie, I have the same issue. I have to press the input on the TV to go through all of the inputs and whenI get back to HDMI 1 it usually goes back to nomral - but sometimes that doesnt even work. I tried calling support, but waited 40 minutes and hung up. chris
