Vizio

Why is My TV Image Going Out?

 P50 Vizio

Episode 1642

Rich from West LA, CA

Rich bought a P50 Vizio that died after 6 months. He got a replacement, which lasted about a year and a half. Then the replacement died. All sound, no picture (intermittently). He's also been having issues with HDMI. Scott says that Vizio's have a known issue with failing HDMI ports. So try and plug into another one. But more often, the power supplies fail, so that maybe the problem. Rich adds to monitor the problem and maybe add surge protection. But also get back in touch with Vizio. The warranty may enable a return.

Scott Wilkinson ... super bright

Scott says that Vizio has announced their 2019 lineup and he says that the TVs are very impressive. Vizio has been using Quantum Dot technology in their top of the line models for a few years, but this year, they have moved the technology down to the mid-range. And that's a good thing. In their top of the line Quantum PX, they have a peak brightness of 3000 NITS, which is super bright. Why so bright? Because of the high dynamic range. They need that brightness for "specular highlights" of tiny reflections. The Color Range has also been expanded.
