Chapter 2 Connecting Equipment
2.1 Which Video Connection Should I Use?
The VIZIO VW22L has six different ways to connect your video equipment from a basic connection to the
most advanced for digital displays.
Connection
Quality (type)
Connector
Description
Best
(digital)
HDMI (Video5) - It is the first and only industry-supported,
uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. HDMI provides an
interface between any audio/video source, such as a set-top box,
DVD player, or A/V receiver and an audio and/or video monitor,
such as a digital television (DTV), over a single cable.
Best
(digital)
-----------Good
(analog)
DTV Coaxial RF. When used for MPEG2 encoded bit streams
from ATSC broadcast programming, this input takes advantage of
the High Definition content.
-------------------------------------TV Coaxial RF. This is the connection for standard NTSC TV
using antenna or cable.
Best
(analog)
RGB PC (Video4) – This video input has separate red, green and
blue color components. The signal carries horizontal and vertical
sync information on the green signal. This is most commonly
used for PC input.
Better
(analog)
Component (Video3)- The video signal is separated into three
signals, one containing the black-and-white information and the
other two containing the color information. This enhancement over
S-Video takes advantage of the superior picture provided by
progressive scan DVD players and HDTV formats.
Good
(analog)
S-Video (Video2) - The video signal is separated into two signals,
one containing the black-and-white information and the other
containing the color information. Separating the color in this way
avoids ‘cross color’ effects where closely spaced black and white
lines are erroneously displayed in color. It also enables text to be
displayed more sharply.
Good
(analog)
Composite (Video1) - The complete video signal is carried through
this single pin connector. This is the most commonly used video
connection.

4.5 Understanding Viewing Modes
4:3 Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
16:9 Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
When watching a standard definition 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source)
the picture will fill the screen but will be stretched horizontally; people
will look fatter than they are.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.

4.6 Using a Cable or Satellite Remote
Your VIZIO remote uses codes 11758 and 10178 to work your LCD HDTV. To use a cable or satellite
remote to work the LCD HDTV, refer to your cable or satellite remote user guide for more information on
how to program the remote. If your cable or satellite remote uses a 5-digit code (like most Direct TV
units), first try 11758 and then, if that does not work, 10178. If your cable or satellite remote uses a 4digit code, try 1758 and then 0178 as an alternative. If your cable or satellite remote uses a 3-digit code
(Echostar or Dish Network for example), use code 627.
Note: Some buttons may not function as expected on your cable or satellite remote. Typically power,
volume and mute will work.
Chapter 5 Maintenance and Troubleshooting
5.1 Maintenance
Important
1.
2.
Make sure that the power cable is removed from the socket before cleaning the TV.
Do not use volatile solvent (such as toluene, rosin and alcohol) to clean the TV. Such
chemicals may damage the housing, screen glass and remote control, and cause paint to
peel.
Cleaning the Housing and Remote Control
1.
2.
Use a soft cloth for cleaning.
If the housing or remote control is seriously contaminated, use a soft cloth moistened with
diluted neutral cleaner to clean the display. Wring water out of the cloth before cleaning to
prevent water from penetrating into the housing. Wipe the display with a dry cloth after
cleaning.
Cleaning the Screen
1.
2.
Use a soft non-abrasive cloth to gently clean the screen.
The screen glass is very fragile. Do not scrape it with any sharp object. Do not press or tap
the screen to avoid cracking. When the screen is seriously contaminated, use a soft cloth
moistened with diluted neutral cleaner to clean the display. Wring water out of the cloth
before cleaning to prevent water from penetrating into the housing. Wipe the display with a
dry cloth after cleaning.

There appears to be image
quality issues.
For best image quality, view HD wide screen programs where possible. If HD
content is not available view “Standard Definition” from a digital source. Standard,
analog TV will always be noticeably inferior to HD because your digital flat panel TV
has video that is many times better than old TV’s and so you can see interference
and deficiencies you did not know you had.
You cannot see a picture.
Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a grounded electrical outlet.
Make sure that the power button is turned on.
Make sure that the selected input source is connected to a working input source.
If your TV is connected to your computer in RGB or HDMI mode, press any key on
your keyboard to “wake” your computer.
You see a distorted picture or
hear unusual sound.
You may be getting interference from electrical appliances, cars, motorcycles, or
fluorescent lights. If you have not mounted it on the wall, try moving your TV to
another location to see if this is the cause of the problem.
The picture has abnormal
patterns.

You can see a picture but you
cannot hear sound.
Make sure that the volume is not turned down.
Make sure that the sound is not muted.
Make sure that your audio input source cables are connected securely and correctly.
The TV has pixels that are
always dark or colored.
Your LCD HDTV is manufactured using an extremely high level of precision
technology, however, sometimes some pixels of your LCD HDTV may not display.
Pixel defects within industry specifications are inherent to this type of product and do
not constitute a defective product.
You see “noise” or “trash” on
the screen.
When your LCD HDTV’s digital capabilities exceed a digital broadcast signal, the
signal is up-converted (increased) to match your TV’s display capabilities. Upconverting can cause noise or trash.
You switch to a different input
and the volume changes.
The TV remembers the volume level from the last time you adjusted it. If the sound
level is higher or lower from another source, then the loudness will change.
You switch to a different input
and the screen size changes.
The TV remembers the viewing mode from the last time you used a particular input
(AV, Component, HDMI and TV).
Tips for High-Definition Users.
The LCD HDTV is an ideal platform for viewing High Definition Content.
Best Image Quality will be achieved by the HDMI Input, then YPbPr, then RGB.
However, due to variances in broadcast practices, it is possible some image
distortions can occur.

6.2 Glossary – Standard Definitions
Analog TV: Today’s TV system using radio frequency waves to transmit and display pictures and sound.
Aspect Ratio (4x3): Traditional TV “aspect ratio”, that is, the screen’s width as compared to its height.
For example, a “32 inch TV screen” would be 25 inches wide and 19 inches tall.
Aspect Ratio (16x9): “Wide screen TV” aspect ratio which is more like a movie screen than a traditional
TV. For example, a “32 inch TV screen” would be 28 inches wide and 16 inches tall.
Digital TV (DTV): Television delivered and displayed using radio frequency waves that contain
information that is digitally encoded for improved quality and efficiency.
Enhanced Definition TV (EDTV): A better digital television transmission than SDTV with at least 480P,
in a 16x9 or 4x3 display and Dolby digital surround sound. 480P is the quality used by most DVD players.
EDTV provides 300-400,000 pixels.
HDTV Monitor (sometimes called HDTV Ready): A set that can display HDTV programming if you have
a separate HDTV tuner, HD Cable Set-Top Box or HD Satellite Set-Top-Box Receiver.
HDTV Tuner (also decoder, receiver, set-top box): A device capable of receiving and outputting HDTV
signals for display. It may be stand-alone or integrated in the set.
High-Definition Television (HDTV): The best quality picture, wide screen (16x9) display with at least
720 progressively scanned lines (720P) or 1080 interlaced lines (1080i) and Dolby digital surround sound.
HDTV provides 900,000-2.1 million pixels.
Integrated HDTV: An HDTV that has the digital tuner built into the set. It does not need a separate settop box to receive over-the-air DTV signals.
Interlace Scan: A way to scan vertical lines onto a TV picture by scanning all the odd lines first, then
filling the in the even lines (this happens instantaneously).
Plug-and-Play or Digital Cable Ready: A DTV or other device for digital cable consumers that plugs
directly into the cable jack and does not require a separate set-top box. Plug-and-Play TV owners must
obtain a CableCARD from their cable company in order to view scrambled programming services.
Progressive Scan: A way to scan vertical lines onto a TV picture by scanning all the lines consecutively
(progressively).
Standard Definition TV (SDTV): Basic digital television transmission that may be displayed with fewer
than 480 progressively scanned lines (480P) in 16 x 9 or 4 x 3 format. 480 interlaced (480i) is the quality
of today’s analog TV system.
Source: Buying a Digital Television, CEA, HDTV Guide, 2005
Note: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)
and the Consumer Electronics Retailers Coalition (CERC) have made a new tip sheet available for digital
television (DTV) retailers to reproduce and distribute to consumers on the sales floor. The file may be
downloaded online at www.dtv.gov. While you’re there, check out the other useful information in the FCC
is making available to consumers interested in learning more about the analog to digital transition.
