SOURCE: 32 inch vizio will not turn back on, just stays orange in front

Try unplugging the tv and holding down the power button for 30 seconds than pluuging it back in and if it does not come back on the tv will need a repair to the power supply, just call tech support and make sure to have the serial number and the reciet handy so they can get you registered on the support system. Hopefully your tv is still under the one year mark than the repair will be free if not it can get expensive fast. Me personnaly have worked for vizio for about a year now and honestly this is a very common problem with theses tv's.

Your sustainer board is probably bad. You need to get the Y & Z sustainer boards replace then it should be okay.

You can either arange to have the TV replaced under warenty if not have it serviced. In any case best of luck with Vizio support line.

Everyone bought this TV because it was so cheap... now we find out why: Vizio cuts corners on everything from engineering to support!! All brands are not created equal. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

Do you have back light when turning on the TV? if you do then just replace the main board should resolve the problem. if you do not have back light, you will need to replace the inverter board(s) depending on your model. The inverter board(s) is located on the left side of the TV facing back of TV. you may have two inverter boards depending on your model. the other is located on the right side of the TV. Both mount vertically.

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

Color problems vizio lcd hdtv


If your tv has a custom settings area, first turn all color down on set so picture looks black and white. Now in color settings look for red blue and green color bars. Use the bars until the picture looks as true to black and white as possible. Also, try changing color temp.

Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; [Exclude the model number], in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Vizio vw37l hdtv20a standby light on but wont turn on


you either have a faulty power supply or faulty main board. Vizio power supplies on the older sets are pretty decent. It's usually the main boards that go. These older main boards tend to be pricey so it may be better to buy a new set.

If you lost the control when trying to use the switches on the TV, it means that the Main board is not functioning, this can be due to bad processor, bad unsteady DC. The main board send the ON signals to the Power supply and the backlights inverter board.
You should inspect the power supply module first since unstable DC can cause a lot of problem, if the voltages and components checked out OK , then you may ahve to change the main board. It will require in-depth troubleshooting to really narrow down the cause of the problem.
Please read my guide first to see if you will want to DIY repair or not.

I have a vizio vw37L and after about a min or so the picture goes out but it still has sound


Does the screen go black or does the screen turn off? To determine this, cup your hands place them against the screen with your face in your hands. This effectively blocks all other light out, if the screen appears to be lit even though it is black, the screen is still on.
If the screen in on but black, 1. Check the cables that are attached. If there are separate cables for the video and audio, make sure the video is properly inserted. 2. There is an internal problem with wiring. Check your warranty and try and return it or get it repaired.
If the screen is off, 1. The lamp is burned out inside the tv. This is usually a free fix if the tv is under 2 years old. Contact the establishment where you purchased it or the manufacturer for details.
