Troubleshoot The Vizio Vo32l Hdtv

Troubleshoot the Vizio VO32L HDTV

Sony's Vizio series is a popular line of HDTVs, offering HD-quality picture and sound, multiple high-def connections for easy integration into your home entertainment system, and user-friendly controls that make troubleshooting simple problems easy and painless. Even the least tech-savvy home users can resolve basic issues they come across using the simplest of troubleshooting procedures.


Troubleshoot No Power to the TV

1. Power the TV on using the power button on the Vizio's button panel, located on the right side of the TV. If the TV powers on, you should see the "Vizio" logo on the front of the TV illuminate. Your remote may need new batteries or may need to be replaced altogether if the TV responds to the front panel buttons, but not remote commands.

2. Check the TV's power cable to make sure it has not come loose at all. In addition to the electrical outlet, check the "A/C in" connection on the rear panel of the TV, as the Vizio's power cable can be unplugged from the TV.

3. Plug another electronic device into the outlet into which the Vizio was plugged. This will check for a "dead" outlet. If the outlet does not supply power to any appliances you test, you may need to have an electrician examine it. If the outlet supplies power to appliances other than the Vizio, your Vizio's A/C power cable may need to be replaced.

Troubleshoot No Sound

4. Press the "Mute" or volume up buttons on the Vizio remote to ensure the TV is not muted. The "Mute" button is located near the top of the remote, \between the "HDMI" and "TV" buttons, and the volume up is to the right of the orange Vizio cursor in the center of the remote. If the "Mute" text disappears from the screen, your TV has been unmuted and you can check again for sound.

5. Check the TV's audio settings to make sure Secondary Audio Programming (SAP) is not activated. Press the orange "V" in the center of the remote to bring up the on-screen displays (OSD). Press the channel down key until you see "Audio Settings" and make sure it is not set to SAP. Exit the OSD and again check for sound.

6. Check the audio connection cables of the component you are using with the TV, to see if they have come loose. If you are watching a DVD player connected via RCA cables, for instance, check the red and white audio cables and secure any loose connections.

Troubleshoot No Picture

7. Tune the TV to the correct input for the device you want to watch. If you are using a Blu-ray player connected to the HDMI 1 input, for instance, you will not see a picture until you tune the TV to HDMI 1. To do this, you can press the "input" button on the bottom of the remote, press the key assigned to that particular input (in this case, the "HDMI" button), or press the "input" button on the side panel of the Vizio. Check for picture once the TV has been set to the correct input.

8. Reset the audio/video connection cable that attaches the device you are trying to watch to the TV. Unplug it from the device and the A/V panel on the back of the Vizio, as this will force the Vizio to rescan for signals on all its inputs. Check for a picture again after plugging all connection cables back in.

9. Press a button on your computer's keyboard or move your computer's mouse, if your computer is connected to the Vizio. If the computer is in "sleep" mode and the monitor is blank, the Vizio will also display a blank screen.
