Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

SCREECHING AUDIO TWO DAYS OUT OF WARRANTY (IKNOW IT'S A COINCIDENCE) OUR TV MODEL #HDTV10A STARTED AN INTERMITTENT SCREECH/HISS SO LOUD IT SCARED THE B'JESUS OUT OF MY WIFE. I CALLED VIZIO AND THEY WANT $299.00 PARTS AND LABOR TO FIX THE PROBLEM. HOW CAN THEY KNOW IN ADVANCE HOW MUCH? ALSO: WE PAID $599.00 FOR THE TV SO IS IT REALISTIC TO BELIEVE THAT A REPAIR DIAGNOSED OVER THE PHONE WILL COST 1/2 AS MUCH AS I PAID FOR THE TV? ARE LOCAL REPAIR SHOPS ABLE TO REPAIR? ANY ADVICE WILL BE APPRECIATED. I'M IN THE OIO6O ZIP CODE.

    We are suddenly having the same problem with our 37 in. vizio. Any outcomes or explanation as to what it was?

    I have the same problem with my 42" ive been thinking about contacting them about it. At first is was only on the coax input but now it does it on all inputs. It can be really loud and scare the **** out of you or very quiet and you can just barely hear it and no other sound. its definitely interesting.



    Is there a separate board just for the sound? or is it all integrated into the main board?

My Vizio (don't know model # off hand, 32" bought at WalMart in Jan), is doing the same thing. It did it once the day I set it up; thinking it was just a glitch or something about my lack of knowledge with HDTVs, I powered it off (the hard way, yanking the power cord, as it won't turn off any other way) and restarted it, everything seemed OK. It did it again around April, same thing, just a glitch I figured. I changed some cables, attached more devices, and it has been doing it about twice a week now.

Sometimes it is the full video lockup, with vertical green lines, and full blast audio screech. A couple times it has only partially locked up the video (green vert lines, but still some movement), and no audio screech. Did it last night most recently, hence my google search.

Anyway, my point is, this is probably more common than we were both thinking, and they know just from your description what the problem is. I would try to have them repair such a known-issue free of charge, even out of warranty.

    appending my previous remarks, issue seems to happen when using the component RCA-type inputs (yellow-white-red). Since moving to using other inputs, HDMI (which fried due to lightning) and now Composite (Blue,Green,Red,+audio), the issue never reoccurred. TV still running great for over 7 years.

I have a problem with hiss coming from the sound bar (ZBase 550 HSD) when using my digital cable box. It is not an issue with PS3 etc. I have the sound on the cable box turned to max, but I still hear a...


Hello ZVOX Owner,
The hiss you hear is generated by the analog audio output of the cable box. The best way to eliminate this hiss to use the digital output of the cable box. The preferred way to do this is to connect the digital audio output of both your cable box and your PS3 to the your TV (I presume your TV has two digital audio inputs.)
Your TV has a digital audio output. You should connect the digital audio output of your TV to the digital input of the ZVOX.
This should reduce or eliminate the hiss and provide convenient video source selection via the TV.
