There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both - most likely the inverter for the backlights.
Check the inverters first for blown fuses.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.
If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

Vbr120 firmware updates


The best advice I have to offer for the Vizio VBR120 is to replace it with a better player from LG, Sony or Samsung. I replaced mine with a LG BR540 and haven't looked back. With Vizio you get what you pay for, junk. There is no update for a Vizio VBR120.

Vizio m550sv turns on and them immediately turns back off


Call VIZIO Support 1-877-698-4946 and discuss the issue. Their sets are run by software "firmware" and it may not have updated proberly when you bought the set. I have had the same problem and it went away after a firmware update. VIZIO will ask you to run a :power discharge" scenario which means you Completely Unplug the unit and PRESS the Power Button on the Back of the Set...HOLDING IT DOWN FOR 3 MINUTES. However, thay may not resolved the issue unitl the firmware is completly updated. This takes a while.

hi,

It can be difficult to get things right on the first try. With that truism in mind, Vizio Incorporated includes USB ports on their televisions that you can use to load firmware updates onto the television. Vizio has released firmware updates only for certain television models, and the instructions for installing firmware updates vary slightly by model. To upgrade your television's firmware, you need to download and copy firmware drivers to a USB flash drive and then read and follow Vizio's specific installation instructions for your model.

1. Connect the USB flash drive to your computer


2. Click the "Start" button, and click the "My Computer" icon.
3. Right-click the flash drive, and click "Format" in the menu


4. Select "FAT32" in the drop-down menu, and click the "OK" button. Windows will format your USB flash drive with the FAT32 file system.


5. Open your Web browser, and navigate to the Vizio support Web site at www.vizio.com/support.

6. Click the "Select Your Product" drop-down menu, and select your model of Vizio television from the list. A new page will open that displays available downloads for your television


7. Click the "Firmware Update" link, and save the firmware update file to your computer.

8. Click the "Firmware Instructions" link, and read the instructions specific to your Vizio television model.

9. Right-click the file that you downloaded, click "Rename," and then rename the file to the exact name that is specified in the firmware instructions 10. Right-click the file, and click "Send to" > "E: USB Drive" or whichever drive letter corresponds to your flash drive. The firmware update file is copied to your USB drive 11. Right-click the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon on the right side of the Windows task bar, and eject the device from your computer

12. Disconnect the USB drive, and plug it in to your Vizio TV's USB port.


13. Follow the steps in the firmware instructions to install the firmware update to your television.



Only you can find is the problem with firmware by udating the frimware of your tv. ok
