Sounds like either you have a loose connection on the board or the board is going bad. Did you happen to get an extended warranty on this tv? If not, then start by opening and looking for loose or broken connections on the board. Don't touch the silver cylinders as they are capacitors. Vizio has had other problems with this happening and usually I have seen the board get replaced but perhaps you will get lucky and find a loose connection. Try shaking the tv a little to see if the picture fixes itself at all, if it flashes back to normal, then a loose connection is probably your problem and needs to get soldered back together. Let me know how this goes and whether you have any further questions or concerns with this and I would be glad to help.

First please try a hard reset: Unplug from power supply, remove all cabling and wait about 10 -20 minutes. Then reconnect to power and redo the cables. Switch on the TV and see if this resolves the issue.

If that does not work, then there is a problem either with the convergence IC's, or the circuitry. In any case, this wouldnt be a job that you can fix yourself, and I strongly suggest that you call a TV technician to correctly diagnose and repair the problem.

However, please try the hard reset first and post back with results, and I will try to assist you further as best I can...

Cheers!

Vizio L32 - Picture has turned red and pink.


I have posted my problem and potential solution to convert the 32" TV to a monitor. I would have preferred to keep it as a TV and not have to buy a new TV, but I do not believe that the problem can be addressed inexpensively since there are no controls built into the TV for fine tuning the color. Even Vizio advises that it would have to go out for repair if it is even repairable. It has been my experience that trying to repair this type of item is normally as expensive as buying a new one.

If one of your experts has an easy inexpensive fix that will work, I will gladly pay for this advise. I do not want to charge my card for someone to tell me it is not repairable or I need to take it in for repair.

Thank you.

Your CCFL lamp has reached "end-of-life". They go pink when they are old. You can get replacement lamps here: http://jkllamps.com/index.cfm?action=fam&tid=2&fID=45 They can also help you with the job, better consult them before ordering anything. Good luck
