Lighting struck our Vizio xvt553sv tv a month ago. We took to shop and paid $360 to replace board. Now it flashes on and off and restarts 1 to 3 times before turning on and working like it should. I don't want to spend a bunch more on this, what can I do?

The picture has shifted on my Vizio, so that the left side starts in the middle and the right side starts on the left, instead of (VIZIO) it's (IO VIZ), I can't seem to find anyone with this issue, can anyone please help?

I have to push in the button 3 or 4 times before the TV will turn on

That's how our problem started. Turned out to be the IR Sensor. Which I'm hoping can be handled at home with ordered parts, because every TV person we've called has asked for more money than is worth the repair.

The IR Sensor on our Vizio is shot. Is that something that a better-than-average home repair person could handle?

We have a Vizio VW46L TV that has performed well until recently. Occasionally, when we turn it on the far right hand portion of the screen is blurred and darker then the remainder of the screen. After the TV warms up, varying time span, the blurred area goes away and the brightness returns. Happening more and more frequently. Is there a repair to resolve this problem and where do I find information?

a lightning strike took out the HDMI and audio of my 4 year old, 40" Vizio. The screen works fine with component inputs, no audio with any input source. Better to try to replace parts, have it repaired or trash it and replace.

If you can take the back off, you probably have to replace the Main Board(the component board with the inputs). You may also need to replace the Speakers as well. Ebay or Google the web, for the parts once you have the back off and can see the Board part number. When replacing, just remember to unplug the TV when working and Capacitors can still carry a charge and shock you, so make sure to discharge them as well.

When I turn on the tv, the video picture is washed out but threre is a video picture threre and after a few min the video gets stronger and with a good contrasted pix. After about 5 min you have a fine picture and continues on fine. Next time you turn on the same thing happens.

my tv picture is washed out but never gets better

sounds like the CFL backlights might be a problem... might need a new backlight... Let me ask you something, is this an LED LCD TV or just a regular LCD tv?

i have a vizio 550i-b2e tv that I found in the trash with a sign on it that said "tv works, 1 month old but has a cracked cell", so I figured whats the harm and grabbed it. I plugged it in and the screen has a softball size spider crack towards the bottom left, it also has vertical and horizontal multicolored lines in the area of the crack and across the bottom of the screen, now im just curious if it is possible or even worth being fixed and if so, where can I find parts and what not to do so? hopefully it can be somehow fixed and doesn't cost as much as buying a new tv. if not, thank u for your time.

My Vizio fell backwards and hit the wall lightly. When I turned it on at first there appeared the most beautiful picture. As it stayed on however, these black horizontal (up and down) lines appeared and have been there since from side to side top to bot, spaced however. What to do??????

I have a VIZIO M420NV and it's 'VIZIO' logo light is blinking and it's white. Display is not turning on. Not sure what happened with it.
Could it be the circuit board? I would welcome any recommendations if I should repair it or buy a new one

I cracked my vizio right where the chip is while moving it. I was able to put it back in place, I think but now it won't come on. ...any ideas?

I have a Visio E422AR. I moved it from one room to another and remounted it. I now have a white line that looks like a tear moving from the lower left toward the center. It started out only about 3" and is now around 8". The picture around it is fine but it seems to be getting longer. Any hope?

Any advice for repairing the dark spot at the top of this 70inch VIZIO M series edge lit led/lcd.
NelsonStudios (author)  Motornon4 months ago

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.

how much to repair a E320-A0 IR sensor board? I wasn't able to take off back panel. Tv will not respond to remotes but works fine.

NelsonStudios (author)  Sansouci4 months ago

No idea on pricing sorry.

when they go to turn my TV on I have to try at least 4 to 5 times for clicks on what could be the problem thank you
NelsonStudios (author)  jackee534 months ago

Probably the control board or power supply. You should be able to look up testing methods for your specific TV online.

Have a cracked screen from a pet accident.. was wondering how involved and what is entailed in fixing the screen (led 42") ? please & thank you.

NelsonStudios (author)  randalls14 months ago
It would be involved only because everything else would have to come out the back before first before you could get down to the screen. Involved but not difficult. The first question would be if you could even find a screen for it.
jackee535 months ago
when I go to turn my TV on it takes at least four to five tries before it will click on what could be the problem thank you

My Vizio E371vl completely shut off while watching last night, no lights on the logo, no sounds, nada. For the past 3 months the station ' guide' information might 'Greene's onthe screen, and none of the remote buttons would work, nor the buttons on the tv, except to shut it off. ?? Any ideas?
Dadgumit , that should have said 'freeze' not Greene's . Dadgum word suggestors..
NelsonStudios (author)  grumpy 19465 months ago
I would start with a search of the symptoms. Maybe someone out there has already found a solution.

I have a 5 year old Vizio XVT553sv and the red color seems to be having a problem. If I turn red gain down to 0, the picture sharpens right up (without red, of course). With the gain up, the picture appears way too red and distorted. When the gain is up and the picture has just a little red in it everything is fine. Soon as the red ramps the problem appears. I'm fine with board level replacements. Any ideas as to which board is responsible (if it is a board) would be appreciated. Thanks.

Oh, here is a video of the screen with lots of red. Also, note the bullseye pattern in the lower left:

Hello! I just purchased a Vizio 60" 1080p this week. As I was removing it from the box I accidentally pressed on the screen causing it to become slightly detached from the frame. This causes extra light to be seen between the frame and the screen. When looking at it closely it seems like it should snap back into place but since the screen was pressed inward I cann get it in the right spot. Any ideas? I don't want to return it and that sliver of extra light is bothersome. Any advice? Thanks!

this is tricky.. but you're gonna need to take the back of the TV off and press the LCD screen from the other side. It's not that hard and there are plenty of videos online to show how to do this.
