how old is your plasma TV? try check the switch / volume of the sound settings.. Sometimes, when you always increase the volume, it will tend to alter the limit of sound and causing the sound to provide sound undesiredness. I suggest to check it with a liscensed technician.

SOURCE: TV made a steady high

Unplug it and do not try to use it to limit the damage. You need to look at the power supply module to see if it has any sign of bad DC filter caps with leaking/bulging tops.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

42" Vizio 240Hz SV421XVT no hdmi video or audio


Possible bad source, bad cable or connection was made with units powered up which HDMI does not like.

First thing to try in this case is to remove power from set and whatever unit is connected via HDMI and disconnect the cable itself.

Wait for several minutes, connect HDMI again and THEN return power to the units that were removed from power, this cannot hurt and may help or correct this issue.

Failing this try if possible to connect using component connections.

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!!

Our 42" Vizio will not display/play sounds when


Hello

One board takes in the HDMI as well as the other signals. Sometimes part of the board breaks and that is what sounds like has happend in your case. This is a fairly common problem and most people tend to just live with it. Others sell thier tv and a few find the number of thier board to see if one is available on ebay or shopjimmy. If you are comfortable with electronics the board is not hard to replace.

Im sorry your HDMI broke....

I hope this helps

Cannot adjust picture size on vizio


If the picture size isn't changing with the television's picture size adjustment setting there could be a few things going on. Check to see that you're in the right input on the television i.e. if you are connected to a high definition receiver make sure you are not in the tv/tuner input (tv display would say analog channel 3 or 4). Make sure your tv is switched to the high definition input i.e. component 1 hdmi 1 and etc. If you are in the high definition input already check and see that your cable box or satellite tv receiver is set to the proper resolution. For example if you have a 720p television make sure the cable box is set to 720p not 1080i. Last but not least look for the hd zoom # button on the cable remote. The button may also say format or aspect.

Recieving hy defintion picture


You need to do the following:

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.

42" pansonic plasma hdmi problem


if I understand your question properly.. its because your direct tv output doesnt broadcast in high def so its giving you the standard tv definition inputs which are RGB or Component.so you will lose picture quality cos its running at fewer lines or pixels. hope this helps
