    I had this same problem and called the vizio support number (you can get the number at vizio.com). They should be able to send you a usb device to plug into your tv than will reset the error. He said that it can be caused by using cable remotes or by disregarding parental control options.

    Exactly what J_angelic81 posted. It needs a firmware update, that they send out on a usb dongle. They did not willingly offer this option, I had to ask them specifically about a firmware update. Then the service rep admitted that that would solve the problem.

Called Vizio Customer Support @ 1-877-698-4946: They said it was a firmware issue that will be resolved with a usb thumb drive they will send out to me. All i have to do is plug it in and turn the tv on....we'll see when it gets here if it in fact does the trick....They appeared to be helpful so far.

SOURCE: Vizio VX32L No Display and Can't Power Off

Old messages and bcipollina is gonna get to read this resonse twice; sorry-
If it just fails to turn on or ignores the remote, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself. 
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.

 
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.  
 
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.

BTW, from what I have read about Vizio, I think they are close relatives to iLo which was also sold by Wal-Mart.
Quality control anyone?

SOURCE: westinghouse LTV30w2 has blank screen and audio

What you have is a darfon V144 board (junk). it's a simple fix if you know how to use some basic tools and a soldering iron. Get an led (i used digikey's PN: L10041-ND) and solder it from pin 10 to pin 16 on the OZ960 chip on the inverter board. If you need the chip layout type "OZ960 pdf" in google. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my tv said input locked then turned off and just

Please confirm the model number of this TV, is it a Vizio L37? I am checking into this now for you.. The first thing to try though is to just unplug the TV from the power source for a good two minutes, let it sit unplugged, then replug it back in and see if it still does not come on.

Let me know what happens when you do that, and confirm the model number.

Thanks
Tim

SOURCE: My vizio said input locked

hi good day
have you been tried before to reset to the default settings?.then so as of now when you tried to turn on the tv it shut right back down. ok unplug your tv and then removed all the input connectors from any other source then re plugged your tv unit and turn it on if still it shut down right away. now check if their is a light indicator at the front panel. so since it was always turn off you are going to open the back cover of your unit to gain access the internal part for proper check up and to fix the main cause.to start checking you will need to turn on the tv for test voltage checking with the use of digital tester make sure always apply safety while doing this. turn it on then check the out put voltage if present at the power supply. the stand by 5v, switch 5v, 12v, and 24v. if the PS_ ON signal voltage coming from the processor is not present their was a problem at the main board. now if the PS_ON signal from the board is pass through the power supply but their are no output voltage coming from the power supply you have bad power supply. check failure component at the power supply however if you want a new refurbished power supply you can find at www.shopjimmy.com just let me know if it works hope it will help you thanks for consulting the fixya service good luck.

I had shut my tv off and was working fine before I had done so: I whent to turn it back on a few hours ago and when I turn it back on it goes to a blank black screen.


Sounds like the input might be incorrect? I would turn it on and hit the input button, make sure it is set where you want (for example, hdmi 1).

My 55inch LG 3D smart tv is not working properly. When you turn the tv on the LG home screen comes on for a few seconds, and then the screen goes black. What is causing this


it's set to the wrong input device ? the one you currently have it pointed to has no input

also it's possible that cable plugged into current input channel has gone bad or become disconnected from it's source
Hdmi cables are unfortunately famous for this as they have no Lock device to keep them inserted into ports

most TV's nowdays shut off if not provided an input for a few minutes

Blank screen


Any error message about inputs? Maybe that clicking sound happens when iit connects to the selected input, but nothing is connected. Can you scroll thru all the inputs? If so, turn on any devices connected to the JVC and scroll thru each input to find the one you're looking for.

Emerson TV no picture, but still have sound


If this is an LCD TV, show a flash light (torch light) on the screen from a safe distance.
If you can see the picture, the backlight has gone off and might need

I might of hit the wrong button when i was trying to switch inputs... The screen asked for 4 number password but i never had set one. So i just turn the tv off and on but now my tv shows vizio on the...


Dear Sir:
Follow this step:
Turn on the TV and grab the remote. In most cases, you will need the original remote to unlock the TV if you aren't sure of the unlock code. If you don't have the original remote, you will need to purchase one.

  • 2 Look at the screen. If you see a blank screen with a red key on the bottom of the screen, press 'Function' and 'Mute' at the same time. This should unlock the channel. This is an option for people who want the TV to stay locked but, want to be able to bypass the lock to watch a certain show or channel. All other channels will remain locked and the TV will fully lock when it is turned off.

  • God bless you

    My screen turns green and then turns off


    you need to adjust the screen voltage. behind the front grille and inside cover. a small black box 6 adjusters protruding from it. only adjust the the color counterclockwise that matches the problem in this case it's the green so look for the knob with "G" marked by it. there are 2 with "g" marked by them the row across the top of the box are for focus don't adjust. back the knob off untill the raster is blank with your input set to an inactive input, the picture should be blank and black.
    when it is you have the adjuster close to where it should be, now change the input to an active signal and turn the color off so that you wil have black and white picture. adjust that knob untill you do have a truely black and white picture not too green or red or blue. go back to inactive video input and check that there are no lines of any color on the screen. repeat if needed. always adjust these knobs slowly the set will be watching you ! if your autofocus won't work now you have the adjustment set too low. check this function before putting back together again. these adjustments can be real touchy so be patient

    TV screen goes blank but power stays on


    Sounds like the CRTs are going into protective blanking due to the vertical output ic needing to be resolderd. Try resoldering the vertical IC that may possibly fix the issue.

    This sounds like a power supply problem in this DLP TV set. Best thing you can do is to call the manufacturer in the owners manual, or go back to where you purchaced the TV set and see where they send the Akia TV sets to be serviced. good Luck
