Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV
I have a 32in Vizio LCD HDTV that I bought from Costco in 7/2006. The HDMI connection was working fine with HD cable & HD DVD player - up untill about a month ago. The RCA connnection/cables work with reg. TV, but HDMI connection doesnt work - we get a blue screen with sound. We're not getting true HD picture. We've taken the TV to an electronic repair shop & they've had it for 2 1/2 weeks. They at 1st told me the I/O board was defective...and had to order a new part. The received new part on Monday & TV was still having HDMI issues...they replaced it with another I/O board & same issue was still ocurring. Now they've told me that they've contacted Vizio & Vizio research told them that my TV is an older model & they don't carry parts for it & refered electronics shop to 3rd party repair company - Repair Solutions. Electronics shop told me they are waiting a call back from Repair Solutions to see if TV needs special HDMI cables or a software upgrade. My question is has any one heard of the HDMI connection going out & should i think about getting a new HDTV since electronics shop is baffeled? Thanks
I recently had the same problem with my vizeo hdmi port # 1 going bad. Tried everything to fix and called vizeo. There solution for a master reset was turn off tv and unplug from the wall. then hold down the power button for 30 secs and let go. plug the tv back in and hold down the volume down and input select buttons down on side of the tv for 15 secs. release the buttons and turn the tv on after powering down all the components connectd to the tv. If this does not work they told me you need to have it sericed for a bad hdmi input. Hope this info helps anyone out there. It didn't work for me. Its a bummer cause the tv is well taken care of and only 18 months old. Best of luck to all others.

Tips for a great answer:
You have several options for connecting your DVD player to your GV42L FHDTV10A - HDMI,
Component, S-Video and Composite (AV) inputs. Based on your home theater configuration, you can
decide which option is the right one for you.
connected to the HDMI input of the VIZIO GV42L FHDTV10A for optimal results.
To maintain the display quality, use a VIZIO certified HDMI cable available up to 10 meters or less.
1. Turn off the power to the LCD HDTV and DVD player.
2. Connect a HDMI cable to the HDMI output of your DVD player and the other end to the HDMI
Input (white color area) at the rear of the LCD HDTV.
3. Turn on the power to the LCD HDTV and your DVD player.
4. Select HDMI using the INPUT button on the remote or side of the LCD HDTV, or directly by
pressing the HDMI button on the Remote Control.
a) If you are already using the HDMI 1 input for another component, or you do not want to use
the HDMI 1 input for the DVD player, you can connect the DVD player to the HDMI 2
