Among the common troubleshooting techniques for VIZIO flat screen television sets include checking the power board for display problems, checking the condition of the speakers for faulty audio and testing internal components of a malfunctioning remote. Depending on the extent of the problem regarding a VIZIO flat screen TV, the cost of repair may range from nothing if fixing the problem is simple to expensive if replacing parts is the only solution to the problem.

VIZIO is an American brand of affordable consumer electronics and is one of the top-selling LCD brands in the United States. Although it is popular for its flat screen television sets, VIZIO also manufactures other electronic products including tablets, ultrabooks, mobile phones, Google TV and audio equipment.

One of the most common problems encountered by VIZIO flat screen owners is a faulty display, which usually entails a blank screen or flickering even though the set is turned on. This problem is usually indicative of a faulty power board and replacing it solves the problem. However, the problem may also be from a faulty T-con board, backlight converter or even the screen itself.

Resolving audio problems is easier with VIZIO sets compared to display problems, which can also be expensive. Sound issues may only be the case of disconnected wires or faulty speakers. If a malfunctioning remote control is the problem, replacements for VIZIO television remotes can easily be purchased online.
