Cannot find fuses for Vizio P42

I have a Vizio p42 that I paid way too much for in 2005. I need to find and replace the fuses, since a visual inspection of the caps show nothing swollen, no burn spots on the back of Power Supply (3501Q00053A). It is doing the familiar, 'some lights, then no lights' nonsense that I have read about. I think I found one, that is marked 8 amp 250 v on the PS, but it is a small enclosed grey- brown box, looking like nothing I have ever seen. So two questions Is that box a fuse, and where in the world can I get another (I would like to replace the other three white ceramic fuses I found scatter on the y and z boards as well, but I cannot find THEM for sale!)? I can find nothing similar at Digi, or anywhere else!

    No help at all. I am not interested in buying another board, I need to find out where to get the fuses. Vizio of course does not make fuses. They make tv's from parts. Where do I get this brown-grey fuse? Where can I buy the other fuses? I have no interest in buying another board. Perhaps I should have said I have dragged the net for a month looking for these fuses.

You are not going to find the fuses as Vizio and all makers do not sell parts---only complete circuit boards are sold--saves on stocking, selling and shipping thousands of parts on a individual basis.


I would Google the model number with "parts" to locate one of several vendors selling the boards----the part with 8 amp 250 volts is a fuse and special----smarter to test the fuses or read voltage across them.

My P42 has same problem. Factory says it is the power supply to vidio.. They want me to pay someone to remove it. Then they want $162.00 to repair it (no new ones available). Looks like a 3 or 4 hundred dollar problem.

Gee maybe I'll run down to Costco and buy another Vizio, Right.

This means you have a dead short, It is probably a Diode in the power supply area, but without testing board you don't know. If you know basic electronics, i would say check all diodes in power supply and look hard for something burnt and replace that also. Or just replace power board, check shopjimmy.com

Our Vizeo P42 purchased in July 2005 has had a red vertical bar on the left side for about two months. About a week ago it developed vertical lines across the left half of the screen with no picture...


sadly no.
either your panel has been hit and damaged or the panel itself is failing.
without some sort of warranty coverage, your repair cost would exceed the price of replacement.

Try first unplugging power cable for thirty minutes, then plug back, this will drain power from TV completely and will reset it.

See if it works.

Unfortunately if the screen is cracked the only remedy is to have it replaced which will be expensive, therefore it might be worth considering a new TV

Vizio P42 dark haze when turned on


This is an ongoing issue with the Vizio 42" series. The SMPS power supply has been a problem in all the Vizio models since day 1. We repair these sets and I do not recommend them at all, they are very unreliable. The SMPS power unit is board replacement only at this time and very expensive.
