Question about Vizio 42 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Picture keeps getting all scrambled

Most of the time the picture is perfectly fine, but from time to time the picture will start to scramble and get worse and worse or all the black will fill up with red lines and the only way to make it go away is to turn the tv off and back on again. I thought maybe it was a cable box problem but then it happened while i was watching a dvd.

Sounds like a problem with the main board and or av connector cord. contact vizio and let them know you are seeing some red pixelation. some parts on vizios carry lifetime warranties, it has been my experience that this is a covered issue. hope this helps.

would think you need to replace the cable board etc. the signal is not getting in and out right. can also be a fault on the power board giving the wrong volts so would check this to. it will tell you on the board what volts is supposed to be. the 5v and 12v should be spot on other volts will vary a little. also check the capacitors for the caps to be bowed up and a brown/ yellow gunk around them and under the board this can be a sign they are failing.

Hitachi ultravision digital projection TV. The picture scrambles horizontally. The colors look fine. The picture is great for the first few minutes the TV is on, then it scrambles. I've unplugged it,


This sounds like a heating problem..Either there is something keeping the heat inside the cabinet like stuff on top of the cooling vents (also on the sides and bottom) or there is dust inside. Blow the thing clean with clean, dry compressed air inside the cabinet.

- Picture scrambled when set is


The TV has a bad board. It's called the Hyper board. It has been discontinued by Toshiba years ago so it is not an option to replace it. There are some TV repair shops that can rebuild this board by replacing most or all of the capacitors in it. You may want to call your local shop and see if they can do.
