My Vizio E420VL would not power on.


It is possible you have a faulty main board. The main board is in charge of sending a signal to the power supply to "turn" on the set. So assuming your replacement power supply is a working board, I'd lean towards the main board. I would recommend getting a professional diagnoses to be sure.

How do replace a broken screen on a Vizio E420VL 42 in HDTVReady LCD TV


Screen is part of the display panel and means set is finished---cost of part if even available exceeds at the wholesale level the cost of a new set.

Plasma and LCD sets have fragile display panels and can easily be destroyed.

Tv won't switch to "tv"


Your T.V. is programmed to store the last input you've selected. You have to manually switch it back to your T.V. channel input after each time you switch it to HDMI or any other input even when you turn it off. The "Source" or "Input" button on your original T.V. remote will change this.

My vizio e420vl turned itself off and won't turn back on. When i plug it in the vizio logo lights up amber but it won't do anything else.


There are at least two power supplies in any set with remote capabilities; one is on any time the set is plugged into AC and is supplying that indicator and the receiving circuit of the remote, otherwise it wouldn't turn on under normal conditions. The second power supply produces the needed service voltages used when the set is in use. This second supply is a common failure in many sets and it is generally traceable to poor design and the use of low-quality components of a certain type. Vizio may have a repair or exchange program through their service center. I would guess the cost will be between $50-$150 and you might remove the back panel of the set and look for a smaller board with larger-than-average parts on it and is related to the AC cord coming in. It should be fairly easy to remove and replace as these are often outsourced and just plugged into the rest of the set with dissimilar plugs making it simple to install and reinstall.

Just bought E420VL 42" LCD


Go into menu, sound set-up, and switch SRS to off. It's a vizio thing they came up with to act like "Smart Sound" where commercials won't be louder. It is total BS and does not work, it makes your normal sound fluctuate. Worked on all 3 of my Vizios. Hope it helps you.

Vizio 320m. I set it up wrong. Instead of choosing


You should be able to use the input/source function on your remote to select which signal sources you want the TV to display, find out which input on the TV you have the cable box hook it up to then just select that input. Do you still have the user manual?
