SOURCE: HELP PLEASE Vizio Plasma tv broken again - possible driver board?

This could cause by the power supply or the mainboard.

- If the LED stay Green when you turn on the TV. But you can not turn it off, in this case the main board has failed. Replace the mainboard will fix the problem.

- If the LED light always stay at Orange, you can not turn on of off. In this case the mainboard also has failed.

- If you turn on the TV you will hear the power supply click on the LED is green then it click off the light turn Orange. In this case the power supply has failed.

Which boards did the repair shop replace?

Hope this will help.

SOURCE: no picture or sound, light comes on in the front and have to unplug tv to turn it off.

I had this exact problem on my Vizio 47" HDTV. I removed the speakers and all the screws on the back cover. Took the cover off and located the fuses on the largest circuit board. The are in the upper right hand corner of the board. There are 3 of them in a row labeled LF 1.5, LF 3.0 and LF 3.0. The are white in color with copper ends. I took a volt meter and measured continuity across all fuses individually and found the LF 1.5 to be blown. The guy at the electronics store sold me a barrel 1.5A fuse and told me to soldier it across the top of the blown fuse. It took an extra set of hands but the TV works perfectly.

SOURCE: Vizio L32 32 in. HDTV LCD HDMI input not working

I recently had the same problem with my vizeo hdmi port # 1 going bad. Tried everything to fix and called vizeo. There solution for a master reset was turn off tv and unplug from the wall. then hold down the power button for 30 secs and let go. plug the tv back in and hold down the volume down and input select buttons down on side of the tv for 15 secs. release the buttons and turn the tv on after powering down all the components connectd to the tv. If this does not work they told me you need to have it sericed for a bad hdmi input. Hope this info helps anyone out there. It didn't work for me. Its a bummer cause the tv is well taken care of and only 18 months old. Best of luck to all others.

Sony Bravia screen looks cracked? Is this just a board problem or something more serious?


New screen required as it has been damaged. Probably cheaper to replace the set.

I have a RCA 52"


Yes the ATC221 uses the 259296 flyback. If audio works and the on screen menu also comes up but no video its most likely a vertical deflection issue. I would check the vertical IC for signs of bad solder.

open up the tv and look at the power supply. On my tv there where a couple of capacitors that where bad. They most likely have a bulging top all you have to do is replace them and everything should work fine. cost me about $5

Broken glass on front of plasma tv


Some, but not many have the front glass as a replacement, give me the model number so I can check. Oh, pioneer is getting out of the tv business this year ( soon ) if it turns out that the glass cannot be replaced or even ordered you might not feel to bad. They are one of the best at car audio, they decided to go back to the core of there business---------great idea!!!

My Tomtom worked for a while then stopped working.


Hi,
I have a TOMTOM 910. I suggest you call the company @
1-866-186-6866 or
1-866-486-6866.
The same thing happened to mine, TomTom was great about it. They sent me a replacement actually it wasn't until I received the 5th replacement that I got one that works right.) Everyone I've talked to @ the company has always been eager to make it right. BTW, now my TomTom works great, had it for 2 years now & wouldn't think of buying a different brand. If this helps plz rate this 'fixa', if you need more help leave a comment & I'll be happy to help you. Thank you kindly.
