Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Picture blinks in and out every few seconds

My TV was working fine yesterday, and even this morning. But after about 40 minutes of playing PS3 on it, the picture started to blink out every couple seconds. It would either flash black for a split second or these thick blue lines would flash on the screen. Any help would be appreciated.

The lines in the picture and the blinking makes me think maybe the digital / logic board is going bad.. you will need a tech to resolve this and it will be expensive.. In time you will loss the picture altogether as the board will get worse.

    The set is probably going to cost in the $300. range if they can evan get parts. The china made sets are difficult to get parts for.They come out of California and the people you talk to or at least try to talk to are not very helpful.

Download the user manual to your TV. Clik here to download it. See whether audio options to it are set right. If all are right, check its speaker. If speaker is OK, the audio output circuit section should be troubleshooted.
If you feel any difficulty in downloading the manual, send your email address to me. I'll send a copy of it to you by return mail.

You may want to try a good, Monster Cable, HDMI cable. Visit this page: http://www.monstercable.com/HDMI/advancedhdmi.asp
If you have a standard HDMI cable, it will not support 1080P.

So this is one of the few times that I will recommend spending the money for a better cable.
The better cable improves picture color quality, from 8 bit to 12 bit and it improves audio quality.
