42 inch vizio has picture (direct tv) but no sound. Tv is not on mute.


Did you check the RCA AV Cables? The ones with the red, white yellow?

What is the connection you have from Direct TV box to your TV. You might want to start on that.

It might probably as well related to any of the remote controls settings. Either of the Direct TV control or TV Control.

1. Check the cables
2. Check if there is any function on the Direct TV remote that will turn off the sound
3. CHeck the Vizio TV Menu Settings.
4. Try with other component such as DVD to discard the possibility of malfunctioning VIZIO Speakers.

Vizio offer a good customer service if still under warranty.

God Bless You!!

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

Picture shifts to left


I had the offset left issue for non-HD channels with my Panasonic 42" plasma, using Comcast HD cable box. Went into the configuration menu (to get there with the newer Comcast boxes, you have to turn the box off, then hit the menu button on the box immediately after). You will see on the menu a resolution (probably says 1080i), then below it a "4:3 override". Our said 480i. When I changed it to "none", so that it stayed 1080i, it worked! It also works by selecting 480p, but then the picture is stretched.
