    Hi,

    Anyone know where to find one of these replacement stands?
    It is for model VO32LHDTV10A.
    That's "Victor", "Oscar",32,"LHDTV",10,"Albert"
    Only the 32 and the 10 are numerical in that model number, the rest are letters.
    That is the exact part number and there are no other characters in it of any kind.

    I would like to find a replacement stand not a universal stand.
    I found one for a similar model but not exact, and it was over 40 dollars (USD). Is this a typical price for these things? Sounds kinda high.

    Thanks :)

    Hi,

    Ok thanks. I didnt think they would be that expensive really (if available). I know the bases are made kind of rugged, but over 40 dollars seems a bit much.

    Every 5 minutes some one gets a Visio, hangs it on the wall, and throughs the stand away. To bad you are not standing there.
    Try Craigs list, Ebay

    And in the not too distant future they find it's unrepairable and it ends up as ewaste. Note that no service info is available hence it's a throw-away item, I first learned about Vizio from a receptionist at a doctor's office. I did some repair research and there aren't any options as far as can tell.

    Hi again,

    What do you mean there are not any repair options?

    Hi,

    That tells me that it's not a good idea to buy a higher end Vizio because if it breaks down THEY dont want to repair it.

    It also tells me they never heard of Sears, however they dont have all the parts either.

    People seemed to like the picture quality, but now it is sounding like a gamble to buy one. I probably would not buy one anyway myself.
