I have same problem (power light is on, and I have sound, but no picture ) and found that a small capacitor on back of power supply is blown. Seems to be common problem. But viewsonic doesnt stock. Part number is b-00005352 and im trying to find one too

SOURCE: ViewSonic TV sound but no picture

If an LCD TV has sound but no picture do the following:

Use the source button to ensure that source is not set to the wrong input.

Try unplugging power cord for ten minutes, to ensure it is not a setting problem.

Check all the video cables at the back of TV.

Check Light /Color settings.

If problem persist and does not depend on external receiver or settings, then it is likely an internal fault.

If it has sound but no picture then one of the following parts is faulty, and must be tested and replaced:

Theinverter is the high voltage board that provides variable power to thebacklight lamp. This is the most common. When inverter is faulty youcan get no picture, or a very dim picture that can only be seen bypointing a torch light with a 45 degree angle on the LCD surface fromvery near distance.
The inverter must be tested by reading voltages with a multimeter.

The LCD ribbon cable/LCD display and connectors.
Thisis quite uncommon, but happens. If the TV had been hit or moved the LCDcable may have slipped out, or the LCD connector may be damaged.

The LCD controller board.
Thisis the board that controls the video signal, it is difficult to test,as there is need to read determined values on IC pins. To test thisboard you need to purchase a service manual and follow thetroubleshooting diagrams on service manual.

Input/Output Signal boards.
This are the boards where youconnect the video and audio cables, if a signal board is defective,then you may get no picture on particular inputs located on faultyboard.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual.

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Just bought a G-Sonic 32 inch sound bar came home hooks it up to my Vizio 42 inch tv no sound with bar??? RCA on TV and bar a PC and plug in no sound ?


I had the same problem, no sound from tv to the sound bar. I hooked up the output for sound from the sound source, your cable tv box or satellite receiver and ran it to the sound bar, and then received sound.
