    We took the back off of the TV... none of the caps seem to be bulged. All of the ends are flat. All leads seem tight to the power supply also. Like I said we have sound always... the picture does not come on.... it come on eventually after putting it on and off over and over again. Any other ideas?

If you remove the back and look at the power supply you will find a couple of electrolytic caps, that are bulged and need to be replace, and that will take care of your problem.. Also you can purchase a new power supply and just change it out.

I have a Verizon FIOS DVR connected to the Samsung receiver. After watching TV for a period of about 30 minutes or so I start to get a delay in the volume coming out of the speakers compared to the picture...


common problem, trouble is that the receiver cant keep up with the dvr box. try this, dont use audio from your dvr into your reciever, take the audio out from the tv, and go into the receiver, now the sound is after the picture and should catch up with itself.

Sounds like you hit the PIP (picture in picture) button on the remote. Hit it a few more times and it should go away.

Picture shifts to left


I had the offset left issue for non-HD channels with my Panasonic 42" plasma, using Comcast HD cable box. Went into the configuration menu (to get there with the newer Comcast boxes, you have to turn the box off, then hit the menu button on the box immediately after). You will see on the menu a resolution (probably says 1080i), then below it a "4:3 override". Our said 480i. When I changed it to "none", so that it stayed 1080i, it worked! It also works by selecting 480p, but then the picture is stretched.

Vizio GV42L LCD TV screen black when turn TV on first time


If you are using a set top box this might be caused by turnig the box on at the same tie as you turn the tv on or slightly after you turn the tv on.  If you are using compnent or HDMI inputs the set needs to see the signal as it is turned on to know what formt the signal is in.
