Have a Vizio VX37L that when it is turned the


HERE'S THE FIX: I just went through this with my Vizio VX37L. TV is stuck in RGB input. This is the fix.... TV is stuck in RGB input.
(option 1) Power on TV, and press the INPUT button repeatedly and rapidly until you can change to a different input, such as AV.
If that doesn't work, try:
(option 2) With the TV off, press and hold the INPUT button on the side of the TV for about 5 seconds. The TV should power on and the input list will appear. The TV will no longer be locked, and the INPUT button should function properly after that.

Option 2 worked for me!

Stuck in RGB input.


i imagine your problem is over by now one way or another, but for anyone else experiencing this problem, thought i would share. your rgb input is tripped and needs to be reset, there are multiple things that "may" fix this, but the sure fire method is to connect a laptop to the rgb input, make sure you change your display settings on the laptop to "external monitor" and change the monitor selected in display settings on your computer. When the TV recieves a signal (which is what it is wating on and why it is frozen) it will then allow you to change input and will not turn off. Make sure your computer is running and all display settings are set before turning on tv so it does not time out and shut off before you can get it to pick up the signal

While trying to change channels, my t.v. displayed ''no signal'' and then shut itself off. Now, when I turn it on, it says no signal and turns itself off after a few seconds.


Turn the television on and as soon as the screen turns on repeatily press the input button or change the input to whatever input you are using from a source device. As long as you change it to anything other than RGB.

Your television is essentially a big computer monitor with multiple inputs and a tuner. When using your computer and shutting it down the monitor will go in a power save mode. You don't need to shut off your monitor due to this power saving mode. When you power up your computer your monitor automatically turn on.

With the VIZIO and the RGB (computer) input the television will act just like a computer monitor. When you have a computer connected it will power down automatically when you shut off your computer. When you turn your computer on the VIZIO will automatically come out of standby mode. This is through RGB only.

This is normal operation for the VIZIO but can see confusing when nothing is connected to the RGB input. If you change your television input to RGB it will sense no signal on the input and will go into standby mode after about 5 - 10 seconds. If you were to send a signal to the television through RGB it would automatically kick on.

When i turn on y Vizio LCD TV theres a blue screen that says no


Your TV is probably in RGB mode which means its looking for a computer signal. Plug a computer into your TV and then it will stay on. Then you can change it back to TV mode.
