Question about Vizio P50HDTV10A 50 in. Plasma HDTV
There is no sound coming from the speakers. Just a consistent popping sound. Tried various connections to no avail. Surround sound works fine so I know it is not the sattelite box.
SOURCE: Loud Pop Vizio P50HDTV10A 50 in.
sounds like the power supply board..could be the system board, but sounds more like the power supply board..this unit still under warranty?

Don't replace anything, Vizio has issued a lifetime warranty for this set because of this problem. No joke, call the customer service line and tell them you got the pop of death. They'll send someone out to 'repair' the set free of charge. If they can't fix it they'll give you a new one. Even if your mfg purchase warranty has expired. Call them and post the results. I've been fixing TV's longer than I care to admit and this is the first time I've actually seen a company stand behind their products like this. I bought a broken tv with the intent of fixing it and after replacing almost every board I could only manage to get the vertical racing stripe line, except mine was purple. I put it all back together and called to find out if there was a recall on this set and within 5 minutes the (Actual English speaking) gentleman told me to sit tight and he'd have a repairman come and do his thing. He did, and long story short, he couldn't fix it. Last week they delivered a new TV to replace this one. I was shocked. I think Vizio will have all my future business.
