  • Vizio worst customer service ever!!

    Our 65" TV that is 1 year old stopped working 4 weeks ago. We have a 2 year warranty. We call Vizio, they sent out a tech that said it was not repairable. Vizio said they will send us a "like new" TV. They don't even replace your defective TV with a new TV. I've been without a TV for 4 weeks, i call every few days to find out the status of our TV delivery and they keep saying they have "no tracking information, call back in a couple days". Tonight i called and talked to a supervisor named Bryson, he still had no information for me, told me to wait another... More...

  • Do not buy Vizio Tv from Target

    I purchased a Vizio TV from Target in 1/2014. This TV needed to be fully replaced by 11/2014. I purchased the additional 3 year insurance from Target. I assumed this insurance would be on the new TV which I received on 11/25/2014. However, the TV just died and it is only 26 months old but Target is now telling me that the additional insurance expired 1/2017. Do not purchase this TV it is not worth the money and also do not get the additional insurance from Target. More...

  • Vizio Customer Service for repairs HORRIBLE!

    Only had our 50 inch Vizio for 7 months and it quit. Screen went black, made a loud noise, then nothing. Immediately called Vizio. Was transferred to their repair company ITI. Was told it would take 5-10 business days to get it repaired. They would send the repair part to a local TV company they use and they would set up appointment to come out to fix it. 6 days later husband got a call from someone that they received our TV parts on accident. Tried calling ITI but no answer. Called Vizio and told them. Said they'd look into it and call us in 24-48 hrs. Had to call them back 3 days... More...

  • Green vertical line down side of screen

    I purchased a E601i-A3E from Walmart December, 2013. A few months ago (right after our 1 year warranty expired)it acquired a vertical green line down the side. We did the hard reset and were able to move the green line over to the edge (thankfully the line was close to the side and not in the middle of the screen). Figured we would have to live with it since we spent so much on the TV (Our family Christmas gift) and the warranty period was over (not worth a hassle). However, today, the TV decided not to turn on. We turned the tv off (unplugged it and everything) and it still... More...

  • Vizio , stay clear and buy a better brand

    We purchased the Vizio Model E601i-A3E from our local Walmart in late November 2013, by January 2014 (2 months) the picture had a big white spot in the middle , spent many hours back and forth with Vizio and was sent a replacement tv in late Feb of 2014. Ten months later the TV now has a red line line running down the right/middle , very bright basically making the TV useless. I have seen online this seems to be a very common issue with these TV's. I contacted Vizio and they have stated the Warrenty is past due but I have screenshots of other customers getting a fresh one year from... More...

  • 60"Vizio smart TV piece of JUNK!

    I bought a 60" Vizio smart TV Dec. of 2014 and by march it had a red line down the right side, After multiple attempts I got a hold of a person at Vizio and was told that since it was more than 30 days old they would replace the TV with a refurbished TV. I was pissed. I thought it should be replaced with new but that was the best they would do and I ask the guy..."so if the refurbished TV goes bad they will replace it with a new TV. I was told my year warranty would start new with the "refurbished" TV. So I get the TV in April and by Jan 2015 there is a red line down the... More...

  • Terrible TV

    This 50" 4k Ultra-HD "Smart" TV is the worst TV I've ever owned! Turns itself off occasionally, loses internet connection, even locks up to the point where I have to UNPLUG IT from the power outlet for anything to happen! This is a horrible product sold by Vizio and I feel duped into buying such low standard equipment. More...

  • Poor Vizio Customer Service

    I bought a Vizio 60" model e601i-a3 television from Walmart in June of 2013. The unit is 8 months old and I've been very satisfied with the overall performance of the unit. Two weeks ago I turned the television on and a vertical red line appeared on one side of the screen. I contacted Vizio Support to have the unit repaired or replaced. I did get a response from them within the 48 hour window they advertise. I was told to do a hard reset of the unit which I had already done before calling them. I told them that I had already done that and it did not fix the problem. Two days later... More...

  • VIZIO Deceptive/Selfish Practice

    A Logitech C525 Webcam was given to me for my B/day. I called VIZIO to find out if it would be compatible with my recently purchased Smart HDTV. The agent told me that NO OTHER Webcam is compatible with their item. One has to purchase their brand. I find this to be a deceptive practice by VIZIO. Even though it would not have applied to me when I bought my TV, VIZIO should let potential customers know what they are up against - that if a customer is buying with the intentions of making Skype one of its fundamental uses, that the customer would have to purchase their webcam.

  • Visio does a 180 on promise to help

    On consumer watchdog website,, a previous customer reported a run in with a so-called Customer Escalations manager named Josh (Badge 721). They said he basically said that they were out of luck. Well, I am here to tell you that after two calls to Vizio regarding the sound bar we bought less than six-months ago that just stopped working, I have had the same experience with Josh. I told him that both previous calls had told me that replacement would not be a problem. His reply was that, "People make mistakes." Sure, they do. But, as I pointed out,... More...

  • Customer service, what's that?

    So, we had the black screen problem... which many people have reported happening to them. All seemed fine and then customer support decided to mess things up. 1) First replacement and delivery was fine, it took longer than I think it should, but still... satisfactory. 2) 48 hours after replacement TV received, a red line of dead pixels suddenly appears - we call support and support takes our info with proof approved after we send them 3 photos of TV. Promised us that we will be able to get Saturday delivery due to our being inconvenienced already for original warranty replacement. 3) 72... More...

  • Vizio Customer Service is horrendous.

    I purchased a Vizio 37" from their website in November. Because we were in the middle of renovations, I did not open the box and set it up until December. It was missing the screws, remote batteries and manual. When they finally sent me the screws to attach the base to the TV, I plugged the item in and it was completely defective. Vizio will not adress the issue. They claim I should have contacted them sooner. Upon visiting a friend yesterday, I discovered, as she opened her new Vizio, that mine did not have ANY of the protective foam nor coverings that hers had. Obviously, mine had... More...

  • Warranty\Replacement Information

    Did you know.....that when you purchase a new Vizio TV product, specifically a 37 inch flat screen, if you need to send it back, you do not get a new TV unless you spend an add'l $129 or more, you get a replacement. Also if you receive a replacement TV, the 90 day warranty starts when you CALL Vizio to get the information to return the product NOT WHEN you receive the the 90 day warranty actually is 60 days!!! No where do you know about these two items unless you specifically know to ask or at the time you are calling to see what can be done. The booklet you receive when... More...

  • 1080P HDTV

    I have had a 50" Visio HD TV for about 18 months. I was watching "Journey to the Center of the Earth," the original with James Mason, when the picture went black. There was still sound but no picture. I see by doing a little research that this is a common problem with Vizio TVs and that Vizio now has a reputation for disastrous customer service. Replacing boards has been suggested, but really? If a product has a known manufacturer's defect, then why not pony up and replace the TV or replace the part at no cost to the consumer? i've loved the picture on my... More...

  • Vizio Corporate Support Manager

    Called Vizio Corporate support to get help on a problem I was having with a REPLACEMENT Vizio they sent me. Last February we went to Walmart to purchase a TV, we purchased a Vizio 46 " and that one started to get some blueish shadows, so I called the Vizio tech support and after months of talking to techs from Vizio they decided to send a repair man to replace a circut board in the tv, well that didn't work the shadowing was still there, so Vizio decided to send me a replacement Vizio television same model and here it is May of 2011 and now a blue line has appeared on the screen...

  • Vizio lcd tv

    Our Vizio LCD died 4 months after the one year warranty expired. We did not buy extended as Consumer Reports said not worth the money. Vizio will pay for parts to repair but parts are back ordered for over 6 months and likely longer now that Japan is struggling. Vizio said we can buy a re-furbished tv for $400 that I can find brand new on-line for $450. This is unacceptable practice. Their is obviously a problem with this model or the mother board would not be back ordered indefinately. I think some thing else should be offered to make this right. A high priced purchase should not die 4... More...

  • BAD TV

    I bought this tv from walmart after reading CNET editor choice review. I paid delivery charges and when i tried to start this out of box new product it did not start. I have never seen anything like this in my life . A brand new product not working ... I guess CNET editor's reviews are paid reviews ... VIZIO is smart to spend money on it because people trust on online reviews more than tv ads . I called their tech support they don't know if the problem is in the TV or remote. the support guy was very rude . he is going to send me another remote after 10 days ... still... More...

  • Terrible service

    Vizio customer service is the worse that i have ever dealt with. I bought it from Costco and finally I decided to replace it with a Sony. I wasn't asking for my money back, i just wanted them to fix it. They told me i had to plug a DVD into it, I don't have a DVD, so the customer service told me to go borrow one from a neighbor. What idiots. The last time i spoke with the customer service department they told me to get a new comcast box. It must be comcast since i have the same problem with different boxes. NEVER BUY ONE, in fact when I was in the store the other day i... More...

  • Vizio customer support

    After ~2 years, my 52" Plasma went out with a loud bang. I called Vizio customer support and of course my warrenty expired and was told there was nothing they can do. I was told to find a T.V. repair person in my area. I was disgusted and called Cosco (where I purchased it). They were very helpful and told me this was a very common complaint about this model and that Vizio would extend the warrenty. They called Vizio directly with me on the phone to make sure I was taken care of. Vizio took all my info and said I would be contacted "shortly" by a technician. I waited 5 days... More...

  • Unsatisfactory product and service

    After purchasing T.V. discovered picture is only adequate from a straight on position. Cannot view properly from any other angle. T.V. is located in a bedroom of normal size and the volume is terribly inadequate. At times on 100% can finally hear. (We have no hearing issues) While under warranty have called in and first tech said they would send someone out. A week later they called back to say, sorry, no can do. Suggested I email pictures of T.V. and they'd decide if it were fixable. Also said these T.V.'s only have 3 watts of sound so there was nothing they could do for that... More...

We purchased a Vizio 60" 6011 in April 2013.
Last Saturday we turned it on, no picture. It is dead.
So far no response from Vizio.
Will NEVER buy their products again.

How do I get my hands on a new mother board. As I have read Vizio mother boards are defective. I paid a $1000 for my 60" it lasted 4 months a typical life span for a Vizio mother board. But now how can I get my hands on a new one with a REAL warranty

bear123 says: (6 years ago)
I have a 55 inch LCD and Visio was very rude on the phone when I told them the tv should not be breaking down within 24 months. The tv went black with only sound and then eventually the sound went out. They said I need a new pcb board. I ordered the board months ago and still on back order. If your reading this post i would guess you to are experiencing problems. Spread the word cause it will cost them money in the long run.

I purchased a 37 inch TV on 12/31/10. Within four to five months, we had problems. It needed to be serviced two times and then I contacted Vizio and the nightmare began...the story that I rec'd when I phoned Vizio was that if you need to have your NEW Vizio TV sent back for a replacement unit, you will NOT get a new unit unless you pay extra - in my situation, it would have been an add'l $129 according to Vizio employees that I have spoken with. You will get a recertified unit, which could be something that was previously fixed or if a store has too many, they are sent back to Vizio opened, checked, and sent out. Also to my total shock and surprise, warranty on the replacement unit begins when YOU call to request to begin the process NOT once you have received the new or recertified unit. At this writing, I contacted Vizio on 10/4/11 and my recert unit will not be shipped from California for another 2-3 days so it looks as though I may only have a 60 day warranty - not a 90 day warranty. What I have gone through, it doesn't seem as though Vizio is willing to back up their product or what their employees have told me previously, which is a replacement unit comes with a one year warranty. One employee told me that the information I received was inaccurate and that they would talked with the employee but they cannot do anything about it because "if it was done for me, then they would have to do it for everyone else". This employee was very quick to tell me a number of times that I could purchase an extended warranty, again, having the consumer take the brunt of a defective unit. Boy do I feel mislead. The sad part of the story is that Vizio is not willing to help the consumer out. No other options but for me to get a recert, have a 90 day warranty, which would start when I contacted Vizio. I guess because of the statement about not doing for me or anyone else shows that it doesn't matter to Vizio about the customers. I tried to discuss what I would like for the misleading information, such as a one year warranty, as stated to me previously, on the recert unit, to replace my new unit with another new unit, asked if I could get a six month warranty - none of them were even considered. The sad part is that at no time during the sale of this product was I told about replacement, warranty on a replacement, not able to get a new unit for a new unit, or that the 90 day warranty would begin at the time of a call, not when it was received. You find out about part of the warranty steps once the box is opened or when you have a problem that Vizio doesn't want to take care of Well, at this point, I do not have faith in your product, service, information that you staff gives out, or confidence in your company. Buying another Vizio product is not something I will consider again.
