I have a black picture, but have sound. Vizio VW26L HDTV 10F

The back light on the Vizio VW26L HDTV10F may have failed on the TV. In the past year, I've had one monitor and one TV (both over 10 years old) fail with the same black screen with clear audio. The way I confirmed that the problem was the back light involved lighting the screen at an angle (in a dim room). For the monitor, an overhead recessed light let me see a "ghost" image of the open program. For the TV, I used a flashlight held to the side. Then I was again able to see the dim image on the screen. With the TV, I was able to continue using the TV for another few weeks. I had to unplug the set and wait for several minutes. Then, after restoring power, when I turned on the TV using the physical power button, the back lighting would come back on. However, after a few weeks, this method stopped working. (The monitor back light did not respond to a similar removal of power.) The copyright date for the manual is 2007. I believe the best option is to replace the TV. It isn't worth fixing the back light on a small screen that is this old. I wish I had better news for you. Cindy Wells (My old screens both had compact fluorescent back lighting. The replacements use LED back lights. The power usage for the electronics thus is considerably better with the replacements.)

Vizio V585-H11 blinks white screen

I've seen this issue many times on this series of Vizio sets, you have a bad EEPROM IC on the main board, either change the main or order and solder in a new IC if you have advanced soldering skills, needless to say the chip will be a fraction the cost of the board.

I'm watching football and cannot see the top score

You should adjust the aspect ratio on your cable box. Depending on your cable company there should be an aspect/HD zoom button. If this does not work go into the TV settings using the "menu" button and try to find a reference to aspect. Make sure it's set to 16:9 normal vs. stretch. You can contact Total COntrol Remotes (www.totalcontrolremotes.com) for help with this kind of issue.

Vizio TV D50x-G9 won't power on

Bad TV PSU (power supply unit) and seems dangerous to me. arc'ing? sounds. I'd not plug it in to AC wall power until fixed. did water land on TV? why not get a shop to fix it? or buy \the shop manual the manual you don't have may say the main board needs to be reprogrammed to use this size 50" screen, and if not done by the book there is no hope. learn to RTM first, no 2 TVs are the same. some have 1 main logic board that works on 3 screen size models. why not get shop to do that? and not pour cash down a pit. to zero gain, why? what if the PSU was overloaded, even the LED background array can do that if bad. so replacing the boards 10x will not cure that. see??????? next time by LG or Samsung. far far far better long lasting TVs and 10x better service, (consider that)

I have a large darker than the rest of the screen on my vizio tv

The Vizio "E" (economy) series sets have local diming, on most brands if some of the lamps go bad the screen is black but not on these model Vizio TV's, for this reason it's harder to troubleshoot the set for possible bad backlights or backlight inverter issues. If you have a LED backlight tester you can test each zone at the backlight connector off the inverter board to see if each is working, without a tester you're going to need to remove the panel then move strips that don't light to ones that do and see if it's the strips bad or inverter issues.

How to fix a Vizio M420SL Edge Lit LED TV with dark corners

Edge lit sets have a tendacy of having sections of the backlights bad, there are 4 to 8 zones with about a dozen lamps in each zone, if you have dim edges the outside sets have failed. The issue with replacing them is the lamps get very warm before buring out and in most cases, it damages the defuser panel, so it doesn't spread the light correctly. Start by taking the screen (panel) out and defusing screens and see if the thick one is damaged, either cracked or warped, if it is it's time for a new TV, if it looks ok you can get parts from shoppjimmy.

Navman icn320, very sticky rubber case how to clean?

To remove the stickiness from you Snooper sat nav use a white none scratch saucepan scourer and Cillit Bang black mould remover. Use only the mould remover do not use any water. Use just enough mould remover o moisten the scourer to avoid getting liquid into electronics. It takes a bit of work to clean the corners and nooks and crannies. Protect the screen from damage while cleaning, the remover itself will not cause any damage to the screen. Don't put too much pressure on and the sticky mess will come off.

Hey I'm trying to program my Comcast remote to

After much research, here is a step-by-step for getting your Vizio Soundbar to work with the Comcast remote using EFC codes (mine is the newer charcoal grey one, works great!)

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 11144 (2 blinks)

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00169 - Vol Up - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00168 - Vol Down - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00037 - Mute - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00165 - Power - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00164 - Input - Should get 2 blinks

These are optional, I didn't use them:

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00036 - <button to use for TVOL> - Should get 2 blinks

Aux - Setup (2 blinks) - 994 - Setup - 00101 - <button to use for TSHD> - Should get 2 blinks

Then set the volume control on the remote and other settings according to the Remote's manual.

ENJOY!! Hope this helps someone...

Half of Vizio E65-E3 LED Strips Don't work

Unfortunately, this model Vizio set has a lot of issues with the backlights. I believe I've posted this before but going to again, before you buy a Vizio TV check the model number, if it starts with an "E" keep shopping, the E stands for economy series and in most cases the sets only last a yr or 2. I'd be suspicious of inverter issues, the defective lamps damage the power board inverter, start by testing C203 and C204, you should see the same voltage on both caps. If one has no or very little voltage you need a replacement power board. If the voltage is close to the same (one will be a little lower as it has the lights that work on it), I'd lean towards a connector issue, this set has 4 individual regulated supplies for the backlights, they're fed from 2 inverter rails, it appears one rail is working and the other not, this points me in the power supply issue.

My VR2 Remote doesn't function correctly to my Vizio television.

The VR2 is not a Universal Remote, it is an enhanced facsimile remote (with screen) and has to be ordered specifically to the mystery model of your Vizio television. Google Vizio (model) replacement remote and stick with Copy remotes that match the one that came with the television. People don't buy Universal Remotes these days. Have a read of this https://www.fixya.com/support/r29872378-universal_remotes_no_facsimile_remote Or buy direct from Vizio.
