With no answers to my questions, I merely ask if there is anything else that I can offer in hopes of a response from the asker to my questions which would help solve the problem. I don't post BS and then beg, this isn't begging. I just wish that FIXYA would do something about issues like this

Vizio damaged screen


From what I have heard the screen is likely to be ruined and need replacing.
Replacement screens are available but throwing the tv away and buying new seems to be the popular option.

It is probably time to contact your household insurer...

It turns on/off by itself


Hi, this could be a problem with the power supply in the tv, it is common especially on some Samsungs and specific repair kits are available quite cheaply if you have good soldering skills, this can also apply to many other Flat Screen TV's .

Usually this is caused by capacitors that have dried up and split, you can normally tell as the capacitors are bulging on the pcb, you can get them in a kit as I said eBayer's sometimes do them or you can buy them indivually from a good electronics components supplier, make sure you get the correct values for each!! marked on the side of the capacitors in xx/x V, xxx/x uF and 105oC. (the x's represent numbers)

The picture below shows the type of theing that happens, the brown ones are bulging/split on the top whereas the black one is fine.

High Voltages can exist in these sets, never attempt anything while plugged in and
if in doubt do not attempt it yourself and seek the advice of a qualified TV Technician.

There could also be dry solder joints on the panel, usually applies to the power supply as it's mainly these get the hottest.

Here's an example of what dry joints look like.....

It's also worth considering claiming under the warranty for replacement or repair through you dealer if warranty is valid.

How can i watch regular television channels without a convertion box?


technically you can't Now this depends on where you are located too All analog (normal) Tv channels will soon be off the air and only digital channels will be available. Many countries have already shut down analogue broadcasts Australia will continue until late Feb 2010 Some other countries will still have analogue till 2011. Not knowing where you are located makes this almost impossible to answer. Fixya is not just US based we are all over the world as a network of experts so we often answer with either generalised or local knowledge on questions such as this.

But the set top boxes are now so cheap and simple to setup an operate it is easy to incorporate one into the system and enjoy as many options as they offer
