To answer the question properly one will need to know the model of the TV as it determines the availability and cost of replacement boards or repairs to the boards.
Here is, for example, a link for fixing a common problem with the same description for VIZIO P50HDM and P50HDTV10A:

I have a 50 inch plasma vizio tv. I was watching it then i heard a pop the screen went black and i still had sounds yesterday but today no sound, I called vizio tech support they told me it was the gas...


when you here a loud pop its usually the sustainer boards. Have you checked the fuses on the sustainer boards first to see if they are still good. There is a IC chip under the heatsink and when it gets extremely hot it gives. Also check you power supply board to make sure you don't see any swollen capacitors, leaky or bulged out from the top. Let me know if that helps at all.

Our 3 1/2 year old Vizio P42 plasma made a pop, screen now blank


Hello kilmertwo, my names Dave! What your TV did is called the POP OF Death! In order to repair the TV you will need to replace the Y sustain & the Z sustain board also! The loud POP noise you heard came from the Z sustain! If you take this TV to a local repair shop the cost of the repair is going to be around 800.00 big one! 450.00 parts and 350.00 labor! Not only will you be spending that amount but this is a common problem with this TV! So you take the chance of this happening again! What I'm trying to do is to save you from throwing good money after bad! Do not repair the TV! You can for the same amount of money buy a totally brand new TV! I would suggest that you buy a Panasonic! Trust me!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions! I'll be more then happy to answer any question you may have!

Picture went out on p50hdm Vizio Plazma tv after loud POP


It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Turn on the TV.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.

Unfortunately, that board is the inverter board. And for this model the inverter board is only supplied with the the PDP panel. The panel is quite expensive, here's a link if needed:

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,

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.
