Loud Pop Vizio P50HDTV10A 50 in.

My Vizio P50HDTV10A 50 in. had a loud pop, then the picture turned black, audio still working. What is the fix? Will you help me?
THANKS! Chris My three year old vizio poped, the picture dimmed, popped again a couple of minutes later and the picture went completely away. Is there somebody out there who tried replacing the z board, y board, and y support boards? Did it work? From the two pops, I suspect two different things blew. I've read many postings of the problem, but haven't seen a posting from someone who solved the problem. Help?

Just to add to the above post it can also be popped Ceramic fuses. Its worth a try. In most sets I fixed there are about 6 of them and cost you about 10$. Check the specs on the fuses and get the same ones. Pop the old ones out and the new ones in and see if it works.. If it doesn't you have to get a new PS board as WeListen2You has suggested.

Sounds like the power supply board..could be the system board, but sounds more like the power supply board..this unit still under warranty?

    i used to fix these when I lived in Hawaii, and it takes some doing..first thing you can do, is take off all the screws, something like 35 of them, and inspect the board area, after removing all the covering..wait around 15 minutes for any residual energy to dissipate..and, use a wrist strap for ESD, if you get creative here..

Picture went out on p50hdm Vizio Plazma tv after loud POP


It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Turn on the TV.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.

4-year-old 50-inch flat screen made a loud 'bang' and picture went out. The noise was more mechanical than the type of pop or snap you'd expect if a capacitor blew. The audio is still ok.


Depends on the physical size of the cap; there are some larger ones in your set that would produce a 'bang' but you should also have gotten a whiff of the airborne chemicals then.

Had loud pop and then no picture on the vizio 50in. plasma


TV was on with no picture problem. Left the room and when I returned the picture was very dim. Turned system off and turned back on. Picture didn't change, but heard a loud pop from the back of the TV.
