Recently Vizio put up a special bulletin on its website stating a number of its 2012 60-inchE601i-A3 and 70-inch E701i-A3 HDTVs may lose the picture (but maintain audio) due to a bad “chip assembly”. Vizio did not disclose the number of TVs affected. Fortunately, unlike its problem in 2011 when owners reported Vizio HDTVs smoking or catching on fire, this is NOT a safety issue, the affected TVs will simply go black.
Vizio is offering a warranty part replacement on all the units with the bad chip assembly. Vizio will replace a recalled TV that has already lost its picture with a new unit (not a refurbished one as they customarily do) according to its customer service representative. Vizio HDTVs are sold by Amazon, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, Costco, BJs and Sam’s Club. All the recall details appear after the break.
Our research indicates the Vizios with the bad chip assembly were made and offered for sale in the 4th quarter of 2012. We checked our local Costco and verified all the E601i-A3and E701i-A3 now being sold are new production, past the serial numbers of the recalled models.
