It only sees the rgb inputs. The repair service said that the eprom got flashed from a power surge but hus people want to sell him the whole input board which would cost around 1000$ Does anyone no howto or where to get the bin file for this model?
I agree with the service people. Replace the board or contact Tristatemodule.com . Many shops use rebuilt boards from this service and they have a 1 year warranty. They will test it first and repair it if it is faulty. Do not flash it due to the EPROM may have emf damage.

Lightning-damaged electronics are a gamble to repair. Sometimes the problem is a single component, but more often multiple components are damaged, and even if you get it working, something else may die shortly thereafter. If you are lucky, only one board was damaged. My recommendation, if you have homeowner's or renter's insurance, is to put in a claim for the TV and get it replaced.
Having put forth that caveat, the blinking red LED hints that you may have enough left of the set for it to be repairable, especially given that much of a plasma set is already built to cope with high voltages. Try downloading a service manual and following the troubleshooting procedure.

I assume that you checked to ensure that the power connection is good and that there is power to the plug (or power strip/surge protector) that the TV is connected to. Is the blue light on the front of the set on? This would indicate that the set is in standby mode. If there are no lights at all on the front - this indicates an internal power circuit failure has occurred. Could be a blown fuse or surge capacitor. Also could be that the power failure/fluctuation "wiped" the TV's memory.
Try this - it might work to "reset" the TV to factory default settings (if there is no component failure/defect in the TV).
1. Unplug the TV and leave it unplugged for 10 - 30 minutes.
2. Before plugging it back in - press and hold the main Power On/Off switch for about 10 seconds. Then release it.
3. Plug the set back in. The front panel "standby" light should be lit (on my 37" Olevia LCD TV, it's a big blue light).
4. Turn the TV on normally. If no response - press and hold the Power button for about 10 seconds to see if it will power up.
If it now works, after a few seconds pause, it should start automatically scanning for active channel inputs and storing them in memory. If not, go to the Settings menu and select "Channel Search" (or "auto-scan" or whatever the appropriate command is to have the TV search for and program in all active TV channels available from your input signal source).
If it still will not power up normally (or the standby light is not lit), then there's probably a blown fuse or capacitor or other internal component failure or fault. If this is the case - the TV will have to be diagnosed/repaired by a reputable TV repair facility. If it's still under warranty, I would contact the manufacturer's Customer Service department and just tell them that the set has failed and will not turn on.
NOTE: Always use a quality surge protector power strip or power filter device for sensitive electronic equipment, such as digital TV sets, home theater systems, stereo systems, etc (especially expensive items). I can't tell you how many defective units I've seen that require repair due to a power surge condition.

I hate to tell you that this happened to me last week and mine is 18 months old. after calling toshiba and going through all troubleshooting, nothing worked. they referred me to a service center near me and the repair is $466!!!!! I have lots of power outages so they can seriously damage a tv (the motherboard to be specific). Mine is the 42 inch 535U. get a surge protector for your cable and ask your electric company to install a power shield on the meter or a surge arrester.. good luck.
push vol-, input, and power, at same time. keep push until tv start. Then you will see k123 at your screen. Now push vol-, and chan- at same time. You will enter service mode. Look for "error no reset" change the value to 0.
I had a problem where my VO22L was giving me a "No RGB Signal" "The Power Will Be Turned Off" message when I had it in RGB mode (with VGA input from my PC). Anytime I left my PC on and turned off the power of this unit, I got this message. I just got off the phone with a very friendly and patient Tech Support woman at Vizio, who talked to several different techs who all came up with things that didn't help. Finally, while we were talking, she came up with the idea of going into the settings menu and doing a "System Reset" to see what happens. What do you know, it worked!
To anyone else having this problem, try this. With the PC and TV on, in RGB mode, go into the menu screen with the remote. The far right tab is "Setup". Use the arrow keys to go down to the "System Reset" option. When prompted "are you sure" select "Yes". I powered the monitor off and on, and the problem is gone. Now if it happens again, I know what to do.
Turn the television on and as soon as the screen turns on repeatily press the input button or change the input to whatever input you are using from a source device. As long as you change it to anything other than RGB.
Your television is essentially a big computer monitor with multiple inputs and a tuner. When using your computer and shutting it down the monitor will go in a power save mode. You don't need to shut off your monitor due to this power saving mode. When you power up your computer your monitor automatically turn on.
With the VIZIO and the RGB (computer) input the television will act just like a computer monitor. When you have a computer connected it will power down automatically when you shut off your computer. When you turn your computer on the VIZIO will automatically come out of standby mode. This is through RGB only.
This is normal operation for the VIZIO but can see confusing when nothing is connected to the RGB input. If you change your television input to RGB it will sense no signal on the input and will go into standby mode after about 5 - 10 seconds. If you were to send a signal to the television through RGB it would automatically kick on.
Just hold down the input button on the right side of the tv. This is the bottom one. So, With the tv off, press and hold the bottom button (input) when the tv turns on, and you see the input menu release and press the button to put the tv into a mode that works! Thanks
