Question about Vizio VM230XVT 23 in. TV

1 Answer

I bought a vizio vm230xvt from Sams in Feb and now we are having problems with intermitted signals from all stations, even one within 20 miles. We are on an antennae and all connections look good. This has been getting more frequent since we bought the tv, we were thinking that it was the tv channels since it happened more often with the stations farther away. But now it's all of the channels. Could the tv be going out? Or is there something simple that I can do to fix it?

You could very well have a faulty tv tuner card. It has been known to happen. If it is still under warranty, take it back. Otherwise you will have to purchase a meter and test all the capacitors on the tuner card.

I am looking for an amplified TV antenna to receive several stations within line of sight about 20 miles away.


I have an ordinary antenna for digital TV and use an ordinary amplifier that one end fastens up within six feet of the top of antenna and the other end plugs into an electrical receptacle in my house and both ends are right on my antenna wire that hooks to my tv. I live 80 miles from Detroit Michigan and across Lake Erie from Cleveland Ohio and I get 50 channels on my tv. all the time

My out door TV antenna stopped receiving 1 of 8 channels, this station is 20 miles away, the station said they weren't having any problems transmitting, do I need to replace the ohms device?


Is the antenna digital? If not its analog. Most stations are going to digital HD and dropping analog. The other 7 are still broadcasting analog. Ask station if they are still broadcasting analog if antenna is digital. If no, do a rescan of stations in menu of tv. Let me know.

We have a Vizio VM230XVT that has the front glass covering broken. Can this be replaced and where?


hello, it is possible to replace the screen. You can take it to a tv repair shop or call vizio to find an authorized repair center. Screen would normally cost more than a brand new tv plus repair costs..
Hope this answers your question.

50" Vizio Plasma reads "No Signal" on all inputs?


Well, your TV is still under warranty. That's the good part.
The only thing I can recommend without voiding the warranty is leaving the TV unplugged for 30min. That way, the TV can reset itself and hopefully correct the problem.

If that doesn't solve the problem, it's time to use the VIZIO warranty.
Here's contact info if you need it.

No signal or intermitant signal


Sounds like cable or satellite are your only options unless after the switch they bump up the power.
