Ciend,
First set your picture setting back to there defaults. Now adjust each setting up and down all the way to learn what they do.

Then try the following:
1) Leave your back light at 50%.
2) Adjust the brightness until blacks look jet black them back some.
3) Set the sharpness up until it looks like too much then back a bit; you can never have too much.
4) Add only a little as most people like a little more color than what the TV is set to show.
5) Now adjust the contrast up until it no longer looks as if your are watching TV with sunglasses on; don't be afraid to go to 100%.
6) Now work the back light only a a small amount.

It can some people a few days to tweak the settings. Remember to right down each setting on there value for future reference after getting the picture to what you like.

Hi!! I have a Vizio led hdtv ...but cant turn on the unit..nothing comes to screen went I turn it on..the screen stays in black only the white light at the left botton is light..what can I do???


Check that the TV is set to the right input. Maybe it should be on HDMI 1, and it got changed to HDMI 2, for example. Try a different source. If you're watching Satellite, switch to your Blu-Ray player. Check that your source is on, too.

Good luck!

Color problems vizio lcd hdtv


If your tv has a custom settings area, first turn all color down on set so picture looks black and white. Now in color settings look for red blue and green color bars. Use the bars until the picture looks as true to black and white as possible. Also, try changing color temp.

Bought new Vizio 55"


Had same problem - turned off Adaptive Lumina, Backlight control, and Ambient light sensors on the Vizio advanced picture settings and the Dish remote now works. Vizio was emitting an infared signal that interfered with the Dish remote signals with these settings on. TV still works and looks just fine... But best of all Dish remote works too.

I am having a problem with my new vizio tv. I am


Try this solution....

1) On the original TV remote press the menu button.
2) Scroll down to SETUP and press MENU button to select it.
3) Scroll down to WIDE
4) Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys to adjust to your viewing preference.

**** NOTE: When you adjust these settings you may notice a difference in the picture on the HD channels. When you are viewing an HD channel but the network is not broadcasting that show in HD they push in the sides to compensate and try to make it a sharper picture but know this is normal.

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

BRAND NEW 42in. vizio 1080 LCD HD 120HZ picture not clear


the tv models in store are usually have samples from blueray dvds. standard dvd players will look fuzzy because it only submits standard dvd picture quality. you can try an upvert dvd player. tho i cant promise picture quality. i have an xbox 360 that upverts the quality. if you get a bluray player i recommend hdmi wires. if you get upvert dvd player and it has an hd outlet red, blue, green wires it might work. i havent tried one myself. if you dont want to spend money on bluray dvds. i recommend an xbox console. it upverts dvds through hdmi or hd red, blue, green wires

Vizio 42" fhdtv - need help for better picture quality settings


Since you're using "analog cable", I would adjust the television such that the picture is not streched. This means there will be black bars to the left/right of the 4:3 picture, but you should experience some improvement in picture quality because the TV is not trying to interpolate what to do with an already crappy analog cable signal.

You may also want to add a signal booster where the cable first enters your residence... often, folks split that analog signal up so much it is weak... and looks much like you describe.
