SOURCE: Vizio makes loud static noise, picture goes fuzzy.

You should check your home wiring and grounding. Also be aware of anything that has recently been turned on when this happens. Anyone using a microvwave, cell phone, or other appliance that might be causing the interference.

SOURCE: no picture or sound, light comes on in the front and have to unplug tv to turn it off.

I had this exact problem on my Vizio 47" HDTV. I removed the speakers and all the screws on the back cover. Took the cover off and located the fuses on the largest circuit board. The are in the upper right hand corner of the board. There are 3 of them in a row labeled LF 1.5, LF 3.0 and LF 3.0. The are white in color with copper ends. I took a volt meter and measured continuity across all fuses individually and found the LF 1.5 to be blown. The guy at the electronics store sold me a barrel 1.5A fuse and told me to soldier it across the top of the blown fuse. It took an extra set of hands but the TV works perfectly.

G'Day!

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.


I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

You have faulty electrolytic caps in the power supply section of the tv. Capacitors with reduced quantities of electrolyte take longer to charge compared to normal ones. That is the reason its coming on after you repeat the on/off sequence a few times. If you are not good at soldering, replacing the power supply should do the job. It should cost you about 75-100$. Let me know if you want to do it yourself(please get me the model number of the set as well so that I can find you a replacement).

Vizio remote won't control tv


I just had the same problem. I call Vizio and this is what they had me do that did fix the problem.
1. Unplug the TV
2. Hold down the power button on the TV for 30 seconds (yes, with it unplugged and do not plug it back in yet.)
3. Take the batteries out of the remote.
4. Press each button remote twice to ensure that they bounce back and are not stuck.
5. Place new batteries into the remote.
6. Plug the TV back in. Not into a power strip if possible. ( I did not have an available outlet so I used a power strip.)
7. Try turning the TV on using the remote. (My TV turned on. All of the functions worked - problem fixed.)
Hope that this helps.

Tip

How to repair a vizio tv that turns off at random


1.) Unplug everything from the TV [power, hdmi, av, and more]
2.) Because the Vizio holds power while unplugged you can reset it while its unplugged.
3.) hold power button on the tv down for about 60 seconds.
4.) plug the power only back in.
5.) turn tv on
6.) if it works then plug each component in one by one
7.) enjoy your tv
8.) start saving for a non vizio tv.

Vizio vw37l hdtv20a standby light on but wont turn on


you either have a faulty power supply or faulty main board. Vizio power supplies on the older sets are pretty decent. It's usually the main boards that go. These older main boards tend to be pricey so it may be better to buy a new set.

Is there a reset button? My son tried to plug the computer into our Vizio tv and now there is no power - it doesn't come on. I think he inserted something into the "service" plug.


We have a 42" LCD, model E421VA that had a problem. I called Vizio and they told me how to reset the TV. Unplug the TV from the power source, press and hold the TV power button (located on the TV) in for 30 seconds, then plug the TV back in and turn it on. Good Luck

My vizio vx37l will power up but it wont get any picture and then none of the buttons will work once its turned on it wont power down by the on/off button, i have to unplug the cord can anyone help?


My TV did the same thing. You need a new power supply. Fairly simple to do yourself. The card is about a hundred bucks with shipping. The part number is 0500-0507-0250. You just have to take the back of the TV off (about a hundred screws). Just unplug the old one and plug the new one in.

Vizio 37L suddenly stopped getting all digital channels


I had the same problem with my 42" vizio. Was working fine for about a year and a half, then a month after all stations went digital, I couldn't see any digital channels and it wouldn't scan for digital signals
This is a strange go around, but it worked for me. . Tried unplugging, pushing power button for two minutes... did everything the forums suggest, with no resolve. But, here's what DID work for me. Trust me, it sounds strange, but it continues to work (and, yes... it's not a permanent fix... the channels still go out once in a while, but I can always get them back now)
Use your Vizio remote control. Turn your TV on. Press the "input" button until you get to "RGB", which is what you would connect a computer to. Make sure no computer is connected, or it's at least off if it is connected. When you get to RGB, you'll see a message that says "No Signal". After about 5 seconds, the TV will enter a sleep mode and seem as if it has turned off (orange Vizio logo). Once it completes it's little sleep cycle and "clicks" off, wait a few seconds and hit the input button again. It'll go to the next menu item. Keep clicking input until you're back on "TV", and VUALA! The channels are back! 
I accidentally figured this out when trying to troubleshoot, but I'm glad I did. Didn't want to dishout $250 to get it fixed. Let us know if it works for you too!
