Question about V, Inc. VIZIO RP56 Rear Projection Television

Open Question

Vizio M550MV with Internet Apps - controls lock up when connected to the internet. Must be power cycled and disconnected from the network to regain control from either the manual controls or the remote. Any ideas? I've had this TV connected to the internet in the same way last week with no issues. I tried cycling power on the TV and reseting the broadband modem several times with the same result, connecting the ethernet cable to the TV locks up the controls.

SOURCE: Pink Screen on Vizio 37 inch with HDMI Connection

Hi,
I work as a contract technician for Vizio, and I can tell you from experience that replacing motherboard is one of the only solutions to this problem. The other solution if under warranty is to replace it. If you experience red, blue, or green pixels where dark shades (like nose, eyes, clothes, etc), call Vizio and accept nothing less than a full replacement! I have had situations where I replaced motherboard and within 2-3 hours the pixels return. Hope this helps.

Could just be a weak WiFi signal if thats how you have it connected, or a bad ethernet cable, does any of the other apps connect to the internet and work? Is the internet connection to it properly connected and setup even? Need more details.

Our apps on the Vizio TV do not work


Apps require that the TV is connected to your router and that there's a live internet connection. Is your TV connected to your router?

Will putting it by a cold window make it not connect to the internet?


I don't think so.
The best thing is to contact your network provider; they have the answer for you.

Losing connectivity while stationary


2 issues tp look at:
1. signal is marginal - move closer to router and see if it improves
2. interference from other networks. Change the channel the router is using to one not being used by a close network. A program like inSSIDer will give u a view of the signals around u.

Got wireless signal but no internet connection


You can try to power cycle your entire network (refresh).
This often happens when you have a large network.
  1. power down ALL Computers and disconnect the desktop from the D-Link Switch.
  2. turn off all SLAVE AP's first.
  3. Turn off the Master AP and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  4. Turn off the D-Link Switch and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  5. Now, turn off your modem.
Leave them for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your urgency.
Turn on and connect all devices in the EXACT order.
  1. Turn on the modem. wait 2 minutes.
  2. Turn on the D-Link Switch and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the MODEM.
  3. Turn on the Master AP and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the D-Link Switch.
  4. Turn ONE of the Slave AP's. Turn on your Laptop. try to connect to the Internet. If successful, Disconnect from the network on the computer and proceed to turn on the rest of the Slave AP's, Laptops, and Desktop. If its NOT successful, power on the Desktop and try to connect to the internet.
  • If the desktop connects to the Internet, Check your D-Link's homepage "192.168.1.1" (default) for any wrong settings. If it does not connect, check your DSL Modem's settings.
If the above does not work, post what you did the day before this happened. Probably something small might have messed with the network.

Won't install properly...


Go to your power management setting and turn everything off. I don't know what version of windows you have, so I'll use Windows XP.
Start => Settings => Control Panel => Power Options. Turn all options OFF.
If it disconnects at random you may need to change the channel setting on the cable router.
