The odds are one of the capacitors popped. Look around the circuit boards for this bad capacitor. It should be deformed and stick out like a sore thumb. Radio Shack or some local electronic supply place should carry replacements.

I have a Vizio P50 HDM and while watching it last evening I heard a loud pop and the picture went into a very noisy/distorted condition. Sound is OK. Any ideas?


That loud pop is your Y and Z sustainer. Normally it goes out completly but yours is still half working. Not usally fixable yourself, because you may need to flash the control board f/w , which is proprietary and can't be aquired unless you work for them,

Vizio tv first screen had bluish discoloration and than few days later a pop and screen went black .ANY IDEA OR SUGGESTION all of the sudden started experiencing severe discoloration


This is called the pop of death! If you call vizio they will ask you if you heard a pop, this is a common issue and unless your under warrenty your looking at 916$ to fix it. (assuming you have no sound! If you do its 430$ plus tax for parts and repair. You can buy a used one on ebay for that price!

I have the parts numbers if you want them!
Call vizio if you have had this system for under a yr the will fix it free!

As for me my 50 and 42 inch had this issue and well I am out of warrenty.. I hate vizio lol!

Hello SuziCanevaro,

This may have been the sound of electrolytic capacitors exploding. I would not suggest plugging the set back in until you can have it checked by a qualified TV technician. If you are skilled in Electronics and would like to work on this yourself, you will need:

The schematic diagram, a multimeter, a signal generator, an oscilloscope, and an isolation transformer.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,
