Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems. In order to assist you, I need to ask for more info.
1) Model Number off of the back of the Vizio.
2) Pull up the MENU using the original remote- does the MENU flicker like a strobe as well?
I'm not sure if you're having problems replying? Please don't try to reply to the e-mail the site sends you. Instead use the link to get to the site page and reply here.
Also, a couple of things I want to let you know about TV's. First- capacitors do not cause the set to flicker like a strobe. The backlight circuit causes this. Capacitors cause the set to not turn on or to shut down. Secondly, the Mainboard is not where the capacitors are located- the Mainboard is the AV Input board, the capacitors that cause the set to shut down are located on the power board (but those are not your issue). If you can reply back with the info requested above, I can help you fix your TV.
If you need further assistance let me know. Before you go, PLEASE DO click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of your screen. That is how I am credited for my efforts by the site. You can follow up any time as needed at no additional cost.
