Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

Vizio TV issue

I had been searching for an issue invovling my new Vizio TV, and I noticed you had responded to someone else's problem a couple months ago, with their Vizio turning off and not turning back on again. That's not my problem, but I had noticed that you asked them if their TV was plasma or LCD and if it made clicking noises.
I have a 42" Vizio that I just purchased (by just, I literally mean yesterday), and it makes two loud clicking noises when it turns on and one loud click when it turns off. I was hoping since you posed them a question about this issue, perhaps you might know what is causing it.

This is an indication that the power supply is working. The clicking noise shows that the power supply is booting up. If you still does not have power, it may be the main board that is not working.

Vizio L32 Issue: Vizio replaced our 9 month old 32" last week due to a 'failed' repair for an annoying humming. The new tv has the same annoying humming. What should I do? I really don't want another one...


It is still under warranty then you could ask for your money back as replacing it has made no difference.

You will have to search the internet for more advice on this.

Vizio gallevia no picture


I EMAILED VIZIO ABOUT MY PROBLEM. THEY RESPONDED IN 3 DAYS. THE TECH AND I THEN TRADED A COUPLE OF EMAILS. HE CONFIRMED THE INFO ABOUT THE TV WITH ME. HE EMAILED ME THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM AND PART NUMBER. IT WAS THE MAIN BOARD. I ORDERED THE PART AT VIZPARTS.COM FOR ABOUT 180.00. INSTALLED IT MYSELF AND THE TV WORKS FINE. I WISH IT HAD BEEN UNDER WARRANTY BUT IT WAS 18 MONTHS OLD AND THE WARRANTY WAS FOR 12 MONTHS.

Pretty good chance the logic board is defective. all remote and manual command go trough the logic board via a micro prosseor. If that is bad the set gets false commands. If the run number is the same on that model they probably all have the same problem.. Get another brand not made in China.

Vizio L32 32 in. HDTV LCD HDMI input not working


I recently had the same problem with my vizeo hdmi port # 1 going bad. Tried everything to fix and called vizeo. There solution for a master reset was turn off tv and unplug from the wall. then hold down the power button for 30 secs and let go. plug the tv back in and hold down the volume down and input select buttons down on side of the tv for 15 secs. release the buttons and turn the tv on after powering down all the components connectd to the tv. If this does not work they told me you need to have it sericed for a bad hdmi input. Hope this info helps anyone out there. It didn't work for me. Its a bummer cause the tv is well taken care of and only 18 months old. Best of luck to all others.

Visio P50 HDM television


Well, I have the same problem - I have a Vizio P50 HDM that died after 16 months of use (1 year warranty). I called Vizio and they gave me the number of their authorized service company. They told me that it was the YSUS board which would have to be replaced with the ZSUS board - $835.00 visit including parts. That was three months ago and they are still not here. This is a common problem - Do a Google search for the "Vizio Pop of Death". It seems most are not repairable and have to be replaced. Now I have a $2700 wall decoration. One idea might be to do a search on Ebay for the part number - More and more are showing up on Ebay from units with cracked screens - Good Luck. I was a component level TV tech for 20 years and will do this myself, probably with parts from Ebay. Some say they have had success taking it back to Costco or Sams, even after two years - If you got it at one of these stores, it wouldn't hurt to try.

Code for Vizio tv


I contacted Vizio the other day. They tell me that they use the same generic codes as LG. I have Suddenlink Cable, formerly Charter, so I still use the Charter remote. My remote only needed 3 digits and I have noticed that many need 4 or 5. I can tell you that the LG code worked for my tv. I can power on/off, volume, and change the channel. All other functions require the manufacture's remote. The code I used is 005. There was also 004 but that did not work on my tv. Hope this helps someone!
