If it is a 42", then it IS worth repairing. Vizio will send someone to do it for you, and it will only take 30-60 minutes. There are THOUSANDS of Vizio repair techs around the country, due to the repair company's procedures. Give it a try....

2007 visio tv will flickerimage on and off why wont the image stay on?


if it's a fast flicker, you could either have a backlight inverter problem or power supply problem. The problem with 32" sets Hannah is that they are not worth repairing these days as the prices have dropped like a rock. You can spend more fixing the set than buying a new one! The fact that its a 2007 would make me want to purchase new. Your TV is 7-8 years old and is at the end of its service life. Sadly, LCD TV sets were not designed to last as long as the old tube sets. 5-7 year life expectancy is typical. If I have been of service to you please sign my guestbook page @

My tv is about 4 months old. 2 days ago it stopped playing audio. I still get a picture. it is an LG 42" lcd.


Go purchase a small radio from a pawn shop with aux inputs. Run the tv's audio through it form the audio outs on the rear of the tv,or from the video sources rca outs. You may have to find somewhere to set it up centered on your tv, but at least you get a better sound for a bargain in comparison to a repair.

All the flat panel TVs are somewhat made to last less then 2 years. That's why the warranty is only 1 year for most TVs. Every TV is going to need repair sooner or later. So don't get discourage by it.
If you are a do-it-yourself person, it's cheaper than replacing the TV.
Here's the best place to get replacement parts:

If an LCD TV has sound but no picture do the following:

Use the source button to ensure that source is not set to the wrong input.

Try unplugging power cord for ten minutes, to ensure it is not a setting problem.

Check all the video cables at the back of TV.

Check Light /Color settings.

If problem persist and does not depend on external receiver or settings, then it is likely an internal fault.

If it has sound but no picture then one of the following parts is faulty, and must be tested and replaced:

The inverter is the high voltage board that provides variable power to the backlight lamp. This is the most common. When inverter is faulty you can get no picture, or a very dim picture that can only be seen by pointing a torch light with a 45 degree angle on the LCD surface from very near distance.
The inverter must be tested by reading voltages with a multimeter.

The LCD ribbon cable/LCD display and connectors.
This is quite uncommon, but happens. If the TV had been hit or moved the LCD cable may have slipped out, or the LCD connector may be damaged.

The LCD controller board.
This is the board that controls the video signal, it is difficult to test, as there is need to read determined values on IC pins. To test this board you need to purchase a service manual and follow the troubleshooting diagrams on service manual.

Input/Output Signal boards.
This are the boards where you connect the video and audio cables, if a signal board is defective, then you may get no picture on particular inputs located on faulty board.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual.

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

I have a Hisense 32 inch LCD TV about 3 years old .


Unfortunately, if the panel itself is damaged or defective, the replacement can easily cost the same as a replacement set. Unless you can find another set that has a good LCD but defective boards, the set is not worth the repair cost. Sorry about the bad news.
