    The Speaker at the base of my Vizio 47 in. HDMI LCD TV makes a sputtering sound. Does this in short bursts and long bursts. And occurs on all modalities...Cable TV thru HDMI cable or coax cable and on DVD.



    Not sure this issue is related to the speaker or the signal received from the cable box and DVD player.



    I appreciate any suggested solutions. Thanks.

    I have cable and my vizio 42 flat screen tv has made crackly sounds. Today there is no sound at all. We just added a HD cable box but there was sound for a few days.

    We have the same TV and the sound won't play on some channels on and off. Then sometimes sound from one channel will play on another channel. It will make a loud crackle sound and then no sound at all will play.

I have a GV42L 42" manufactured in march 2007. It works perfect except the screen has a fracture on it. The warrabty is voided because we damaged the screen. I can sell this to somone who has a good screen but needs boards or speakers, etc. Or I will buy your tv that has a good screen but damaged boards in it.

GV42L HDTV picture ok but no sound.


Check whether the audio is muted by accidental press at remote control button. Enter its sound menu, and check it. If muted, as you know there will be no audio output. If not muted, check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

I have a 42 in. Vizio Galleria and need to remove table top stand so I can wall mount. How do I remove base stand?


1. Unplug all of the cables and cords from your GV42L FHDTV10A.
2. Place the GV42L FHDTV10A face down on a soft and flat surface (blanket, foam, cloth, etc) to prevent any damage to the TV.
3. Pull the stand cover off by squeezing the sides to release the retaining plastic tabs.
(This is probably the trickiest part to find this, just feel around and don't be too rough with the plastic)
4. Remove the four (4) screws (screw's specs: M4, 0.7 Pitch, 15mm long) so that the stand base can be removed.
5. Gently remove the stand base
6. Now, the GV42L FHDTV10A can fit securely to a mount (sold separately) by utilizing the mounting holes in the center of the back panel of the TV. Please make sure to read the instructions of your specific mount to properly hang the GV42L FHDTV10A

No sound


Use an external input other than the Rf and check this out, Try to use the audio out to an amplifier for an ouput if so open carefully and check audio power/ output/ speakers. If you are able to get an audio tone fromt the audio amp then the problem could be the IF/processor. Attempt only if you re familiar or seek experienced help with this knowlege in mind.

Vizio 42" LCD screen is red where is should be black. It's only 3 months old!


It maybe a video board or LCD screen control problem. Best to use the warranty at this point. You shouldn't have to pay a dime for the TV breaking down this early.
Here's a link to help you get started on your warranty:

Sound is okay watching tv on hdtv - but crackles with dvd playing


If your DVD player supports HDMI or OPTICAL / DIGITAL audio then I would take a look at swapping to those type of connection first. This would help eliminate bad cords / connectors / electrical interference from other sources

Your TV has two hdmi inputs and optical so you have a choice

GV42L Vizio HDTV Problem


You didn't mention whether you have any audio; details like that can influence the response.
If you have audio but no visible video, look at the screen from an angle for 10-20 seconds to see if any video is present. If you do see some shifting shadows on the screen and have audio, the backlight or its power supply (inverter) has probably failed.

I had this same problem. Vizio sent someone out to replace the motherboard. It didn't fix the problem. Since it was under warranty, they replaced it with a newer model VU42L. Doesn't have this problem, but it has others.
