Question about Vizio Televison & Video

1 Answer

The issues I am having with my 70 inch Vizio which is somewhere between a 2016-2018 model and it won't connect past the inital setup screen. I've had the tv for about a year and a half and was experiencing connection issues then once I reset it, it won't make it past the the language screen. Also the remote won't work on certain screens on the tv. My question is, would it be easier to replace the entire board in the back of the tv as well as the remote and basically have a brand new tv?

The backlight on my Vizio E601i-A3 is not coming on. How can I tell whether it is the power board or the LEDs themselves?

Vizio had a recall on this model TV resulting from the issue your having, below is a link to the recall. What they said was recently Vizio put up a special bulletin on its website stating a number of its 60-inch E601i-A3 and 70-inch E701i-A3 HDTVs may lose the picture (but maintain audio) due to a bad "chip assembly". The "chip assembly" is actually in the main board, Ive fixed a number of this model TV's by replacing the main however Ive also seen the lamps fail as well so its kind of a guessing game as far as where the issue is at unless you have some high end test gear to troubleshoot the set.

Have you tried connecting different devices to the same input? If not the device, it may be an issues with the screen itself. If that's the case, I recommend returning it immediately

Help my vizio tv, model #e371va is stuck frozen? Help our VIZIO TV is stuck frozen?!My Vizio is froze on the setup screen and Ive tried everything to clear it.. Nor do i have the original remote any...

While the set is on, pull the power plug. Then hold and depress the power button in for about a minute. Then replug set and turn it back on. If that does not reset the tv then you do indeed have a serious issue with the set.

Once I turn on the laptop it stays stuck on the LG Splash screen, I press F2 to enter bios setup but it just stays on the splash screen, and nothing progresses, I can't do anything,

I've seen issues like this with a bad hard drive. When entering the bios it queries the hard drive first and it's got issues it can hang it up like this. If you have a spare try that. You can try to boot it without a hard drive to see if it gets past this. Some computers won't boot without a hd though. If you've got another computer you can look around online to make a flash drive bootable and use that instead of your hard drive. Lastly, get a new hd.
