Vizio 42 inch tv Power Not working

I just got the vizio 42 inch tv i pluged it in and for a minute and a half it worked then it went off. There is no power at all not even the name display in the front , no standby either. I called Vizio and they told me that it may be a power supply problem but they were not very helpfull. I wanted to know what i could do to try and solve this problem .If that means opening the back of the LCD so be it but i am not sure what to look for i can not find any spcs for this tv that show me what to do . I hope to hear from you soon thanks

    We have a 42" visio and had it just shut down on us with no standby light or any other sign of the set being on. Checked the power supply even changed out the cord with another visio set we have and nothing. Lucky Mathews, luckymathews@hawaii.rr.com

    I have the Vizio 42" as well, since Feb 2008 - I was watching TV last weekend and all of a sudden I heard a loud "snap" and the power completely shut down on the TV - not even a glow on the nameplate. Nada. Ordered a new power supply on eBay so we'll see what happens.

    My wife bought a 42" Vizio from Wal-Mart on 01SEPT08--today is 07DEC08 so the Wal-Mart 90 return policy expired 6 days ago. Last night, right in the middle of a movie..."click", no power...no lights...nothing. I had to unplug the tv, plug it back in and turn the power back on. Power lasted for about an hour and a half and then same thing. Today, Sunday...same thing. Called Vizio Tech Support during their hours of operation and got a voice message telling me to call back during the hours I was already calling. Emailed Tech Support, contacted BBB after reading all of these forums...What does it take to get a class-action lawsuit? This is not how business is supposed to be conducted in this country. Imagine if you did your job with such disregard to customer service.
    Any ideas out there?

It's very easy to swap the entire power supply board. If it's out of warranty, what do you have to loose? You can purchase a new power supply board from Vance Baldwin. They are the ONLY parts supplier for Vizio. http://www.vancebaldwin.com/ Once you receive the new board, it's just plug and play. Crack the case (a series of small screws around the back perimeter) and remove the old power board and replace it with the new one. It's that easy!

First of all, make sure the power cable and power socket are in working order. Plug in the TV to a different power socket, using a different power cable; use the cable to plug in a different appliance as well. If power cable and power socket are in working order, and the standby/on indicator light in the TV does not light up when it's powered on, that means a TVs Power Supply Unit is faulty and you will have to get it fixed. Opening up the TV may void the warranty. Talk to TV Manufacturer's Tech Support. Since you just got the TV, it should be within Dead on Arrival period (at least 7 days) and you'll be able to get another TV; or within Manufacture's warranty period (at least 1 year) where you'll get the TV repaired free of charge. Good luck.

My power on my Vizio tv not coming on

Posted on Feb 12, 2011

I had the same problem. Vizio is fixing my TV for free because I had it for less than a year. They also offer extended warranties for about 100 bucks a year. Lot better deals then good old wallmart or best buy. Oh and the customer service was very friendly

Posted on Aug 23, 2008

I had the same problem and it was about to go out of warranty in a month. it took the removal of 44 screws for the tech to get to the problem and he ordered the part. it will take another 10 days to get the tv back together. seems to be a fairly common problem on these sets.

I had the same problem. First i tried the power supply and it didn't work same thing. Then I replaced the Main board and that fixed the problem. I have a picture with no sound. So i hooked surround sound to my cable box and it works fine just glad it has a picture now and dont have to buy a new one. Pretty easy fix.

My vizio 42 inch just made a very loud pop and the screen went black (off), the vizio leters at the below the screen stayed lit white as if the tv was still on. 5 minutes later a very loud pop then came...


Is it possible that it was storming when this happened? It could have been a power surge. If you are still covered under the manufacturers warranty, you should give them a call. Even if you aren't covered it wouldn't hurt to call to see if they can help or offer a discount to have it checked out and/or fixed.

Need vizio code for Samsung remote!!


I have a 37 inch vizio and had the same problem. After a little web research, I came across a suggestion that the LG codes might work. I tried it and found that the code 19 worked. You might try that. If 19 doesn't work for you, one of the other LG codes might (they are 06, 21, 22, 23 or 78).

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.

Power Not Working


Unfortunately unless ya handy with a soldering iron ya self it's probably gonna haveta go to the Shop 4 repair :( Often the PSU is at fault, and usually it has something to do with the Electrolytic Capacitors in the PSU. One can try "Shotgunning" ie replacing ALL Caps on spec in the PSU, OR simply purchace a new PSU and fitting it.. a bit of a gamble. Or get a "quote" for the repair and see whats what.

Television will not turn on


My 47" Vizio wouldnt turn on this morning.....had a similair problem 3 yrs ago.....this is what i did and fixed the problem myself.....apparently you have to reset TV. Here is what has worked for me. So unplug tv power cord from the tv. Hold the power button and imput button together ( located on side panel ) for approx 45 sec......plug cord back into tv. Press power button on tv and voila !!!!! Tv came back on!!! I have had my Vizio almost 5 yrs. But have to call the unhelpful customer service atleast once a year.... I hope this works for you :)
