Question about Vizio VX32L Television

Vizio model VX32L TV has no picture

I have a model VX32L that is 1 year and 1 month old. The power comes on but no picture. I called Vizio support and spoke to Carlos (Badge #66908) who told me that it was a bad backlight, and that it would be cheaper to buy a new television than to fix mine. My first and last Vizio.

80% of TVs are having this same problem in different brands.
I'm sure Carlos meant well. If you took it to someone to have it fixed, then yes, it would be cheaper to by a new TV. ( Labor + Part )

But, if you can repair your TV yourself for less than a $100 vs buying a new TV for over $450, would it be worth it? ( Part alone )
If you or someone you know can replace a whole ciruit board, then it can be fixed.
Here's a web site to get the replacement board:

You'll just need to find the right one by looking at yours. Your backlight board will have letters & numbers on it for a board model#. It should be easy to find one and replace it.

My Vizio VX32L LCD TV will power on but no picture or sound


I had the same problem after having a Vizio for 2 and a half years. I left the room for a minute, i came back and the screen went black. There was still power to the unit and you could see that the back light was working, just no picture, no sound, and you couldn't use any of the buttons. The only way to turn it off was to unplug it. It would then start up, with the Vizio logo going from orange to white, and then do the same thing all over, no pic or sound.

HOW I FIXED MINE: I ordered a new "main PCB" from tigerdirectparts.com (you can also use searspartsdirect.com). This is the circuit board with all of the inputs on it (hdmi, cable, etc.) I opened it up, disconnected the old one, put in a new one and now it works fine. I used both serial numbers on the board to search for it online. It cost me $144 to do it, but that's better than $450 for a new TV. My tv is the vx32l hdtv10a. I hope that helps.

For me the part number was either (depending on the vendor) : 0171 2272 2174 or it was 3632 0212 0150. Check your circuit and see if any of those numbers match up.

TV BROKE


This sound comes from something short-circuit. Probaly, the cap exploded. Open the cover and see if the power supply has problem, you need to relpace it.

No picture or sound


Sounds like the unit is in some sort of shutdown. It's hard to pinpoint the issue without knowing the make/model of the unit.
