Question about Vizio VW26L 26 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

When i turned the tv on, it flickered right away and i can hear a ticking sound. I has been 2 years that we've had the tv but this is the first time we had that problem. No other electronic devices near the tv but a regular speaker and the surge protector.

Hi
This is due to a fault in the power supply,It involves some capacitors on the power supply that are leaky. if you take the back off and examine the power supplys capacitors, the bad ones are buldging at their tops. NOTE: Most caps are flat on their tops. The ones that usually go bad are the values 2200uf rated at 35v, and 680uf rated at 10Volts there may be at least 4 that needs replacing and they are all round each other usually near the connector that connects the PS to the Main board.

After a period of time, vertical lines appear on the screen. Looks like jail bars. Sometimes turning the TV off, then back on will clear it. All channels. I replaced the projection bulb about 6 months...


no solution, same sounding problem though. last year we were getting lines through the screen and flickering and then the bulb burned out. had it replaced, 2 months later it did it again (they wouldn't stand behind the bulb so we had to buy a whole new one) this time had the bulb and ballast replaced because the repair guy said usually you have to replace both (why didn't they replace them both in the first place?) .. a year later and it's doing it again.. we get the flickering of the screen going on and off and horizontal lines that flicker across it. after turning the TV off and on a few times it seems to go away (or after it warms up)

i know know if i should order another bulb and ballast and spend the money for it to happen again or if it could be something else

let me know if you find a solution.. carolynspranger@gmail.com

32 RCA makes popping sounds


It needs a new FLY BACK transformer. That is what you are looking at. The origionals are not made for the set any longer but insist on having a generic on installed by a local TV shop. I just put one into a RCA 31" and it works nice. Don't throw away the TV. Get it fixed. MAKE SURE YOU INSIST THEY USE THE GENERIC ONE! THEY DO WORK!
