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.

Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.

1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
2. Make sure the TV is on the correct seting. i.e. Video 1, Video 2, etc.

3. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.

Try turning the system off completely with the main power switch on the back of the console. If that doesnt work call Sony technical support for further help.

Hi, this is a very common failure, you need to replace 2 IC chips on your power supply board, marked on the top of the IC`s is this number: MCZ3001D you can purchase them here if you are very proficient at soldering & un-soldering, and the board has to come out of the tv to do this, you might want to call a tv man for this one, but it will fix your set, happy holidays, BMW Rider
