Don't trash it, FIX IT!  If you are capable of taking the back off the TV you are capable of fixing it.  Check out the video description for where I sourced parts for the TV.
<p>my 32&quot; vizio video display is excessively WIDE and I cannot adjust it back to within the shadow mask. So, I'm missing 20% of the pix on each side. How do I adjust or repair this malfunction?</p>

<p>Hello- I have a 55 inch Vizio flat screen, and there is no sound/picture. :-( When I attempt to turn it on, the blue light on the bottom comes on, and then sometimes fades away. What might you suggest for troubleshooting? Thanks in advance. </p>
okay I have a 37 inch Vizio flat screen television power does turn on but the screen is black is gray with lines through it no picture at all you could tell light is on but there's no picture what could possibly be wrong with that where would I start to fix
My husband busted my Vizio 65 inch tv by putting his fist into it a month after getting it I really would love to get it fixed please help me find out how to do that
<p>go to you tube.they seem to hv alot of videos on this particular problem but im sure they wont hv one 4 ur husbands problem ,he might need more than you tube ..</p>
Nice explaination of this video but I thought I'd bring up the background of your video. Your son was playing with one of your handsaw that was in his crib. I was worried that he could've hurt himself. Thought I let you know.
<p>lol i was thinking the same thing</p>
I have s 50 inch Vizio and thr screen all of a sudden went out. I can still here the people talking but i can't see the picture.
<p>my Vizio 52 in picture has went orange. You can see some of the picture through the orange running all over the screen. It would come on after it warmed up but now it's not. Would this be a picture tube? </p>
I would bet you have caps failing in the power side. I have a Panasonic that is doing the same thing that I just ordered new caps for. If it works I will post how I did it.
Thanks so much. I'm hoping it's something we can fix. It's been an excellent tv.
<p>And caps is short for capacitors, the little round canisters that hold electrolytic fluid, and are soldered onto the PC board. You will need soldering skills to jump that hurdle.</p>
<p>My vizio TV goes black at random intervals for around 10 seconds. It just shows the vizio logo then switches back like its restarting or something. Have you ever heard of this and is there a way to fix it?</p>
<p>See my reply above to Mrjb3313</p>
My 65 inch bizio smart tv wont turn on...let me explain...it turns on and shows the vizio logo then just goes black...the screen is lit up and you can tell its on but nothing shows and then it turns off after some time because of inactivity i guess...anyone know what could be wrong with it?
<p>I found a 55 inch Vizio XVT553SV that has the same problem. The diagnosis I found valid was a bad main board. Hope that helps.</p>
I have a 65 inch vizio i getting rid of it has a cracked screen
<p>FYI...There are lots of Videos on YouTube for Vizio TV repair and I am sure you will most likely find a video there that will address this exact issue...I am repairing a Vizio 32inch that my daughter gave me that wouldn't power on this weekend....apparently Vizio TV's have the same issues across the models .......good luck...... <a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/Tampatec" rel="nofollow">https://www.youtube.com/user/Tampatec </a> was the best of them all in my opinion....good luck</p>
My Visio tv wont turn on with remote, and i cant control the volume either. Could this be an infrared signal problem? Is this something i could fix myself?
<p>We have a Visio E550I-A0 that's seems to lose a color randomly. The opening Vizio screen when working is black with the Vizio V in the middle of it. When it acts up the background becomes gray and it loses one color. Vizio'z answer is to turn tv off, unplug all cables including power, and hold the ON/OFF button in for a minute (thinking this is to discharge any voltage present). Sometimes this works, sometimes it does. I've turned the tv off for 2 days and it has come back.. Any idea what may need replaced to fix this problem? Thanks!!</p>

I have a 60 inch vizio smart tv thats 4 years old that has an anoying flicker. I have tried several things including dropping the back lighting to 0 and nothing works. I need help, Jim
<p>I have Vizio smart TV that I purchased just over 2 years ago. Today my screen has dark shadows along the sides and across the middle. It comes and goes so far. Vizio said it was a partial backlight fail and was repairable. They gave the a number to call to have a local tech come by. There are no local tech according to the girl at that number and she told me that the shadows meant it was the panel meaning I need a NEW TV. This one is not paid for yet. Does anyone know if this could be the backlight and how much it would cost to fix it? </p>
It sounds like the backlight yes but could also be the drivers that fire the back light. They should be reparable either way. Without the set in front of me there isn't much I can do. Start by google-ing the model number and &quot;backlight&quot;, see what comes up.
Any advice for repairing the dark spot at the top of this 70inch VIZIO M series edge lit led/lcd.
<p>Likely the LED back lighting has failed in that spot. You should be able to look up the parts and how to swap them if you search the specific model number. Well worth doing on a TV of that size in my opinion.</p>
<p>Won't you be my neighbor? You seem to know so much. My post is near the top. Frustrated.</p>
<p>Did you ever get this figured out? Geek Squad told me they'd have to replace the entire panel...</p>
<p>I don't fix other people's TV's, I just showed people how I fixed mine. Teach a man to fish you know? Check your model number on google and see if they have diagnostics for it. Likly a pannel swap is required.</p>
My son knocked over my Vizio TV. Now there are cracks in the upper corner of the screen, not the glass in the front but in the actual screen. Is this a costly repair or should i toss it &amp; buy a new TV? If it is not costly where would i purchase the correct part?
Have you gotten an answer to this ? I have the same problem with the same question and would love to know yhe answer if you have gotten one yet ? My name is Dawn B.
<p>No answer so I am going to guess my TV is a lost cause. </p>
I need a screen replacement for vizio E241i-B1
<p>I have a 27&quot; Vizio LCD and after a power outage the &quot;Vizio&quot; light shows orange but won't power back on. Usually after an outage, we can reset it by unplugging from the outlet for about 5 minutes and it will power back on with the &quot;Vizio&quot; light blinking alternating between white and orange, then finally solid orange and we can power up with the remote. This tv has no power button on the unit itself.</p>
I have a vizio 62&quot; and only half the screen shows. How do i fix it?
<p>My Vizio 50&quot; TV fell forward while I was checking something in the back. It didn't affect the screen (no cracks or breaks), but the screen now has bands of lines running through it. (see images) Is this problem worth fixing or should I just get a new television? Any idea how much it would cost to fix if it is fixable? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!</p>
