remove all the screws and start at the bottom and push in the tabs, and work around the edges, being careful not to pry too hard, the cover has clips all around the tv. after the bottom is free and one of the corners the cover will kind of pop off if you use the palm of your hand and lightly tap as you apply sum upward pressure.

This is likely due to heat expansion (turned on) and contraction (turned off).

May be a bad power supply, which is a common problem with these units.I have a GV42L 42" manufactured in march 2007. It works perfect except the screen has a fracture on it. The warranty is voided because we damaged the screen. I can sell this to somone who has a good screen but needs boards or speakers, etc. Or I will buy your tv that has a good screen but damaged boards in it.

How do I take off and clean inside of 32"vizio lcd led tv screen?


I have a Vizio 32 inch HDTV . You will have to place it on a flat surface and take all of the back screws off then pull the ( the back cover) backing of the TV. then is what i did was take it to a low pressure air (for tires) then held it away from the electronics in the back of tv and blew it out . then take it home and put it back together then use a cleaner and a non-abrasive rag for your screen
That got rid of those nasty dust bunnies and i am still using that tv as my monitor . ( I hope that helps you out )

GV42L vizio tuner


Your vizio has an internal digital tuner. When you are on air, make sure that it is set up for digital. It might say DTV. Some sets have an analog only and digital only program option in the user menu, or as a seperate input. When in doubt, check your user manual.

I have a 42 in. Vizio Galleria and need to remove table top stand so I can wall mount. How do I remove base stand?


1. Unplug all of the cables and cords from your GV42L FHDTV10A.
2. Place the GV42L FHDTV10A face down on a soft and flat surface (blanket, foam, cloth, etc) to prevent any damage to the TV.
3. Pull the stand cover off by squeezing the sides to release the retaining plastic tabs.
(This is probably the trickiest part to find this, just feel around and don't be too rough with the plastic)
4. Remove the four (4) screws (screw's specs: M4, 0.7 Pitch, 15mm long) so that the stand base can be removed.
5. Gently remove the stand base
6. Now, the GV42L FHDTV10A can fit securely to a mount (sold separately) by utilizing the mounting holes in the center of the back panel of the TV. Please make sure to read the instructions of your specific mount to properly hang the GV42L FHDTV10A

Vizio GV42L 42inch LCD/HDTV


there are several possibilities. first if the unit comes on and the "VIZIO" light turns white, but no picture or sound, then the main control board is most likely the issue. could be the LCD control board(s) depending on model one or two. and ultimately could be the power supply on the upper side....if the "VIZIO" light does NOT turn white, the whole power supply unit is out. after that, would have to scope the circuits to find out. Seems that the control board is the most common and tends to happen on many different sizes. new board will be around $350.00. Might get lucky and find a used one, but it MUST be EXACT part or it wont work right. if you dont find one or want to sell yours for parts, id be interested in the screen. can reach me at kmarlin@grandvalleygolfclub.com. thanks, keith

Vizio GV42L - your excellent advice...and...


Vancebaldwin.com you will be able to search 4 the part number you need. i believe it is 3642-0012-0395. the back cover is kinda hard to remove. the way i did it is to take a knife and do this in the bottom corner so u dont see it but you have to pry it off causing the plastic very minor damage. once you get the first couple of clips off the rest are easy. you take it off from the back. and just be careful. its pretty simple insides, just the plastic be careful but it can be done.

Vizio 42'' HDTV flatscreen


The TV usually hums when the backlight setting is too low. So turning it up should get rid of the problem. To do this please follow these instructions:

1. Turn the TV on.
2. Press the Menu button on the remote, located right below the channel changing button.
3. Press the down direction button, located at the middle of the remote. Press that button until the backlight is highlighted.
4. Press the right direction button until the backlight is at 100.
5. Press the OK button and then the Exit button until you get back to your picture.
