I had the problem that techman describes. My TV would click, and sound like it was going to turn on, but not turn on at all. I called a repair man, and he charged me $67 to take out the board. He called and told me it was the powersupply, and that it was overheating. 4 months later, he says that he can't keep the board from overheating and now I need a new board. Is he full of it? Did I get screwed?

Re: My television won't work.
The foil trace may have gotten broken on the printed circuit board behind the tct switch.. Try using the remote to turn on the TV set. If the set tryes to click on but does not, most likly the switch has nothing to do with this problem. If the relay cicks and nothing happens, most likly you have a fault in the main power supply and or the sweep supplys. These sets are very common to have bad capacitors and or the start up circuit to go bad. If your not experienced with electronic repairs, play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck.

I bought one also from ALDI for my son's Xbox 360, it is only 3 weeks in use and I have the same problem. The red led is on, indicating that it is in standby mode and recieving power but I can't turn it on either by pressing the power on button on the TV it's self or the on button on the remote. This started happening a few days ago and it's totally random. I found that if you unplug the TV from the power point or alternatively switch off the power point for a minute, than power it on again it will "WORK AGAIN" for a while. Like I said it is random, eventually it will return to the not being able to be switched on state at which time you will have to repeat the process. So thus, this is not really a solution. I am about to return the TV for a refund, and it's a shame because otherwise it's not too bad. and looks OK too.
Have the remote tested either with a tester that most shops have or in a dark room with a digital camera the display will faintly flash when remote pointed at it and buttons pressed.
Also if button does not work (power) unplug the set for a while to see if it will reset. If the tester shows same problem--no working for power or have to press ******* buttons 99% chance something got spilled onto remote and got inside
I just fixed one JV-TV2040 monitor that worked intermittently. Turns out the AC power adapter was bad. The wire was cracked inside the strain relief where it goes into the adapter. You can either replace the adapter with a suitable replacement or do like I did and carefully hacksaw the case open, chop out about 4 inches of bad cable, and resolder to the circuit board. I glued the repaired unit back together with silicone glue.
The Microswitch behind the button has probably broken or the piece of circuit board holding it has broken so it isn't sitting against the back of the button anymore. You could probably fix it by taking the monitor apart and gluing the button back in position.
The e1 code is a demand to clean the filter. It means the unit has been running for 720 hours. It does not mean anything is broken...unless it hasn't been running for 720 hours. That would mean the "clean the filter" timer is broken! There are 2 reset methods.
1) Unplug the machine. Hold down the power button while plugging it back in and wait until it beeps (for about 5 seconds). Let go of the power button. Unplug the machine again, then plug it in and try to use it as an air conditioner.
2) Unplug the machine. Hold down the Mode button while plugging it back in. Keep the mode button pressed until it beeps (for about 3 seconds). Let go of the mode button. The machine will start. Turn it off by pressing the power button. Resume trying to use it as an air conditioner.
If neither of these work, the "clean the filter" timer is broken and needs replacing.
This sounds like the main power board went bad. If this is still under warranty, contact 1-877-MYVIZIO and they will have it repaired for you. if not, let me know and I will guide you to the right part.
Having to press the power button multiple times before the set comes on is usually caused by low standby voltages in the power supply or bad connections on the printed circuit board. The "D" board is not your problem. Most likely there is bad capacitor in the 9 volt standby supply.
