Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV
I HAVE A VIZIO LCD FLAT SCREEN TV THAT SHUTS ITSELF OFF. Sometimes It Shuts Off At Short Intervals, Sometimes It Runs For Hours Without Shutting Off. Any Suggestions?
Is there any solution other than calling a service repair person? It is off warranty.
MyL37 hdtv is 2 yrs old and it shuts down randomly. After turning it back on it sometime runs all day with no problem Tech had me unplug the unit for 1.5 minutes, plug back in use the menu botton , go toll tolls and hit reset all settings. I did this but it still shuts down several times a dayAny help will be appreciated.

There may be some components failing in the power supply or one of the circuit boards that are causing too high a current pull.
I realize that this answer is very vague. Without doing proper diagnostics, it is impossible to guess at something like this.
Out of warranty repairs on these sets can be very expensive. I would suggest that if the set is going to be expensive to service, it would be best to replace it with a known brand name that offers an extended warranty with local service. You will pay more, but you will have dependability and better quality.

It sound like the mainboard has a problem. Replace the mainboard will fix it.

I bought my Vizio 50" E-300i-B3-i Smart TV in early December 2014 and have had continuous problems with it turning off at various intervals and when I use the Youtube app (pre-installed on TV), the TV freezes and I have to unplug :( Target refuses help as I'm out of their 30 day return policy. Vizio refuses to intervene & have Target refund my $$'s or swap out for a different/comparable NEW TV. When I first called Vizio, first thing they asked was if I bought the extended warranty & to email them my sales receipt. Vizio phone tech had me reset signal components and do various tests to no avail - still freezing and still shutting off. Vizio is only offering me: 1) To send a Vizio-certified local TV technician to my home & have TV opened up and a circuit board swapped or 2) They'll exchange my TV for a 'Recertified' upgrade M Series RV (can you say Bait-And-Switch!?). Vizio says most their 'Recertified' TV's were overstock orders (by Costco, Walmart etc) but they cannot guarantee the TV was not bought/returned or repaired/returned... only that 'their Testers turned on RV and checked to see fo all is working'.
I paid a LOT of $$'s for this 'LEMON' TV (my first LED and SmartTV & I bought it on my Birthday) and I do not want my NEW purchase to be worked on by some po-dunk Technician (in this small town) only to have their actions cause later problems or for me to be given a 'Recertified' TV that was minimally tested and can't be proven it wasn't open up and 'repaired' or after having it on for hours the same issues happen!
If there's something I can do or if there's a Class Action Lawsuit against Vizio to get them to give customers like me, a swap-out new TV or refund our $$'s, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
