Question about Vizio E421VA 42 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

I just bought a Vizio E421VA last week. When trying to change the picture settings (brightness/contrast) using the Vizio remote, sometimes it just turns off all of a sudden. This also happened while I was fast forwarding thru a commercial from my Dishnetwork DVR.

Best quality picture


This is likely a simple settings issue.

A lot of people don't realize that backlight settings can affect the picture.

Go to the menu (press menu on your remote)

The menu will show picture options. Just toy with different settings until you find what you want. It may be on a preset setting that doesn't work. If you are in a bright room, you will need to increase brightness and contrast and perhaps backlight.

Usually an unclear picture is due to the contrast, backlight, and brightness settings being too low. You can also increase sharpness.

I suggest a contrast setting of 70, a brightness setting of 60-80, and a backlight setting of above 80.

Good luck.,

What is the correct picture setting for a vizio smart tv model E322AR?


Contrast = 60 to 80%.
Brightness = 40 to 55%
Color = according to personal viewing taste.
Sharpness = 15 to 20%
The best way to tune to a perfect picture is, set the color to Zero first. Without any colour, increase the contrast to at about 65%. Adjust the brightness to get a perfect picture in B/W. Then increase the color, according to your viewing taste. Compare the skin tone of a person. That's all.

Auto-dimming problem


It depends of the set--may have a light sensor built in and if so when light in the room changes the brightness on the TV and contrast will vary.

  6. Use the Up and Down Arrow buttons to select each menu option
  7. Use the Left and Right Arrow buttons to toggle these settings On and Off

I just bought the Vizio E421VA and I am contemplating take it back. The volume levels are horribly inconsistent. On some channels I can have the volume level at 2 and its loud, on others you put it to 20...


we have had the same problem and I suggested to Hubby that we had better return it soon. He did some research and we are trying this: use the TV remote and press the center button "Select", Choose Audio, Make sure True Volume is set to On. I've only been watching for an hour but it very well may have solved the problem. Hope it works.

My new vizio m370nv does not permit adjustment of the backlight % as the manual suggests should be available to me, even under "custom". It also allows for ajustment of contrast, brightness,...


Often manufactures will tie backlight adjustment in with the brightness, You might want to changed the brightness to your desired luminosity and then correct the picture with contrast to your liking.

Dark screen


if the picture is REALLY dark, like you can just barely see it in a lit room, then the backlight might not be lit. LCD TVshave backlight that shines through the LCD screen which allows you to see the picture.

If it's not the backlight then it would be the brightness/contrast settings that need to be adjusted. If the picture used to be normal and all of a sudden went dark, verify the backlight. Normally you can look through the slots on the top of the set and determine if the backlight is on. If you can see a bright light through any of the slots, the backlight is probably OK... go after the brightness/contrast settings.

No contrast


first turn your color all way off or down.try turning your contrast way down as far as it will go you should see a darker picture. now bring up the brightness to a point half way. bring the contrast up to see grays and whites and blacks...adjust brightness more if need be. now you should see a nice black and white picture. no bring your color up last ...not saturate but to your liking. if you stilll got problems i bet your video out transistor is shorted....meaning shop work.
