Vizio L32 HDTV - Blew Out, No Power

My Vizio L32 HDTV10A (LCD) is 2 years old, so out of warranty. Last week I turned on the TV and the power blew out. Literally. It made a loud pop noise and turned off. I didn't see smoke because my surge protector/plug is located behind the TV but it smelled like something had burned. I immediately unplugged the TV from the surge protector. Later in the week, I did plug the TV back in but nothing comes on, including the power indicator light.

I called Vizio Support. They put me in touch with the Out of Warranty dept. They put me in touch with their ITI dept. They had me describe the problem. Today, someone called me with a cost estimate for repairs (either someone comes to house to fix or I mail it to them to fix).

Have you heard if anyone else has had this problem?

Yes, I do in home warranty work on vizeo, it sounds like you need a power board and perhaps a main board. The power board is what pooped.

Last night our TV made a loud popping noise then the picture went out. We still have sound but have trouble turning the TV off. What could this be and is it fixable? Thanks, Anne Marie Orcutt

Question shows it is Vizio L32 lcd tv and symptom shows back light inverter board for defective for some reason and loud noise would be popping of any chip on inverter board. has replacement boards of that model on reasonable price and local tv repairman will replace defective board after checking/ testing the tv.
Hope these info will help.

Vizio L32 stopped working.

I have seen this many times. The tv most likely has run its course. It could be the power supply or a lamp. Sounds more like a lamp, as you still have lights on your set. check around and get some prices on a lamp. you can have a local shop install it for you. or just replace the set.

My tv won't turn on. The orange light is on - will not turn green and go on. Have tried disconnecting from power, using remote, manually hitting on button. Vizio L32 hdtv10a

Look at the power supply, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.
I have the same model for my bed room, my power supply blew up beyond repair, had to buy a used one, now the LCD controller board is going bad when it gets hot. Not a very good TV.

Bad capacitors in the power supply. Open it up and look for swollen electrolytics.

Television will not turn on

My 47" Vizio wouldnt turn on this morning.....had a similair problem 3 yrs ago.....this is what i did and fixed the problem myself.....apparently you have to reset TV. Here is what has worked for me. So unplug tv power cord from the tv. Hold the power button and imput button together ( located on side panel ) for approx 45 sec......plug cord back into tv. Press power button on tv and voila !!!!! Tv came back on!!! I have had my Vizio almost 5 yrs. But have to call the unhelpful customer service atleast once a year.... I hope this works for you :)
