Question about Vizio VW42LF 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Vizio TV 27" LCD LED. It is 3 motnth old, bought from COSTCO. Couple of days ago the sound is not there any more. No Audio. Just a noise. I can control the volume ( of the noise ), but I have no audio. I called the cable co, and they checked the Cable box --- it is fine . So, its the TV. It's over 90 days since I got it, I can not return it to the stoe. Any suggestions ? Thank you. Marina

The manufacturer usually have a year warranty on their equipment. Look through your info and contact the company. Let them know that the audio decoder in the TV has failed and that you request further action on their part. Make sure you have your receipt handy. Oh, you did register it right? if not do that now with the info you have on when you bought it. (lots of times it doesn't matter if you register it late or not so-long as you have proof of purchase)

My Vizio Smart TV has no sound


Sounds like you may need to replace the audio circuit board. If you are comfortable with taking apart your tv, you can find a dealer on this site who provides new and refurbished circuit boards for televisions. It is a shame that your tv is so new and causing you issues. Good luck and have a great day!

I have a Sanyo 42 inch Mode Number: DP42647. I bought it 2.5 years ago, and suddenly, the video is out. The sound is ok, as well as the "power" green LED. By looking at other forums, it seems...


I would just replace the TV, because any guess you make without the testing and equipment is just an expensive guess. New TV's are cheap by comparison. I have had a lot of TV'ds and the best do far is my Vizio 42 Inch LCD. 11 years old no issues.

Brand new 47" "Edge Lit" LED, model MV4(Cant


I believe there may be another setting, it has to do with auto contrast which can make the TV seems to have high contrast ratio but sometime it does not work right, espically on the scene with dark sky with stars, someitme it will will reduce the brightness to make black real black and you can loger see the stars in the scene. I forget the name of this setting, it may be in the user manual. Do you see that in TV HD mode in other movies with a lot of dark scenes?

Our 3 year old Vizio plasma TV just made a popping sound and the screen went blank, then about 30 seconds later, a horrible piercing buzz started and we had to unplug the TV to get it to stop...Any ideas?


It just happened to me on 4/7/10. My vizio p50hdm made a popped noise & did not turn on. I purchased the tv at costco on June 2005 w/amex card. I pulled my amex statements from 2005 then called costco with my member # and they found the transaction. If you purchased the tv before 4/2007 the item is grandfathered with the 100% customer garrantee. After 4/2007 the return policy changed to 90 day money back return 2 year warranty and you get an additional year if you purchase w/amex card for a total of 3 years. Be very nice to the Costco people even if they give you an attitude on the return of tv. I got a credit for $2200. I just purchased a samsung led tv 46 series6 back lit & internet. Amazing Technology. & I Love Costco

change out the LVDS cable (the cable that go from the control board to the main board) and it should resolve your problem. If your TV is still in warranty, call 1-877-MY-VIZIO and they will set up an in home repair for free.

No picture but sound


do any lights come on with the TV?, like white vizio or orange vizio light. sounds like a problem with the power board. some vizio parts have lifetime warranties so contact vizio support and report your problem. if it is covered the service call is free. there is a green led light on the power board that should come on, if it is not on, you may have a bad power board. to see this light on the power board, turn off the lights in the room and view the tv from the back cover, power board is 3/4 way toward top in the middle of the tv

Pretty good chance the logic board is defective. all remote and manual command go trough the logic board via a micro prosseor. If that is bad the set gets false commands. If the run number is the same on that model they probably all have the same problem.. Get another brand not made in China.

Television will not turn on


My 47" Vizio wouldnt turn on this morning.....had a similair problem 3 yrs ago.....this is what i did and fixed the problem myself.....apparently you have to reset TV. Here is what has worked for me. So unplug tv power cord from the tv. Hold the power button and imput button together ( located on side panel ) for approx 45 sec......plug cord back into tv. Press power button on tv and voila !!!!! Tv came back on!!! I have had my Vizio almost 5 yrs. But have to call the unhelpful customer service atleast once a year.... I hope this works for you :)
