SOURCE: Vizio VX32L No Display and Can't Power Off

Old messages and bcipollina is gonna get to read this resonse twice; sorry-
If it just fails to turn on or ignores the remote, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself. 
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.

 
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.  
 
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.

BTW, from what I have read about Vizio, I think they are close relatives to iLo which was also sold by Wal-Mart.
Quality control anyone?

SOURCE: mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume

Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.

SOURCE: cannot change input source for tv

i would try the abvious first, unplugg the tv from the ac outlet and wait for a few seconds then try turning tv on see if the problem is solved, if not it might be that the key board panel needs replacing.

SOURCE: My 50'' Samsung Plasma has dead screen after only 2 years

Hi,
welcome to fixya!
without doing voltage checks, my best guess is this:

Plasma hpr5053 or hps5053 models will burn out a buffer board or both, there are two buffers and the Y board.
I usually change all 3 at once, but if on a budget you can try to remove one buffer and see if you get half picture (upper or lower)
this is something only a technician should attempt. the boards cost $200 each (buffers)
$300-$400 (Y board).
if you actually get half a picture the Y and one buffer are good, a bad buffer usually burns out the Y board. and in really bad cases the panel is bad also (not common, but possible)
For part#s , specific help you can post a model# , but again this is a repairmans job not something the average customer can fix.
hope this helps
Eric

SOURCE: Vizio 42 Plasma Pop

My 42 Inch Vizio experienced the pop of death out-of warranty. I bought mine at Sears and they sent a technician over within a day or so. It turned out to be in the power supply and they shipped a board right out. Total including parts and labor was $280. Although no expensive TV should die after less than 2-years, Sears seems to be able to deal with repair in the home without drama.

I have a Samsung Plasma TV pn60f5300afxza and when i try to open my TV there is nothing on the screen and the red light flashes. The screen doesn't open or nothing


Sometimes on Samsung tv remotes there are input buttons up the top (tv, video, etc. These allow you to control other devices they ARE NOT hdmi inputs like AV1 AV2 etc) ensure that TV Button is pressed immediately before power. It is easy to knock the buttons and choose an incorrect input. Failing this pull out and reinsert HDMI/rca. failing this 1. power cycle the device. If this doesn't work contact retailer/Samsung.

I have a Samsung Plasma TV (pn60f5300afxza) and when i try to open my TV there is nothing on the screen and the red light flashes. The screen doesn't open or nothing.


Samsung remotes sometimes have buttons up the top of their remotes to control other devices. I accidentally hit these sometimes and they change the controller to another (not connected). Ensure TV Button on top of controller is pressed before using remote to turn on tv.

Ge antenna 24700


Hi Patrick,
A fuzzy signal on a plasma TV is not common anymore as with the lack of analog TV transmission the signal is either there or it is not.
A amplified HD TV antenna is not always a solution and often times to get a good HD type reception a good outside antenna is required. I have two $100 antennas high up on my roof and still you can get a loss of data stream when the weather is bad. I also use distribution amplifiers to feed several TV's
In the case that the picture is fuzzy but still there it might be a resolution setting that is wrong so hit the menu button on the remote and see if that display is clear- if it is then try setting a different resolution for the input that you are getting fuzzy signal on.

Why does plasma tv not come on?


Check the power outlet. Try connecting it to a different power outlet. Look for any jammed buttons on remote. Retry by removing batteries of the remote and operating the TV from the control panel. If nothing works, the power supply has gone bad. It could also be a blown fuse.

Lg plasma menu screen wont go away


The exit button on the remote may not be working or some other button on the remote is jammed. Try removing the battery of the remote and switch off the TV manually and the input power. Wait for a few minutes and then switch on the TV manually. The try changing the menu from the TV control panel. If nothing works, this is a case to be handled by a qualified service technician.

After warm-up screen flashes and loses color but comes back on and off intermittidly. This is a 50" Zenith Plasma tv. thanks.


Sounds as if a cable connection is bad. Check the cables first. If cable are good, change inputs, if cables are bad replace cables. If it's component, make sure that red, blue or green didn't come loose on both sides...the tv and the source. If you still have problems, check for red video noise on the screen itself, preferably when it's on but with on input (black) If you notice this, your plasma is failing.
