SOURCE: Vizio VX32L No Display and Can't Power Off

Old messages and bcipollina is gonna get to read this resonse twice; sorry-
If it just fails to turn on or ignores the remote, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself. 
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.

 
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.  
 
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.

BTW, from what I have read about Vizio, I think they are close relatives to iLo which was also sold by Wal-Mart.
Quality control anyone?

SOURCE: Vizio model VX32L TV has no picture

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:
http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=vx32l+back+light

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.

You can also try to take out the batteries and push all of the buttons with the batteries out of the remote. Then put the batteries back in and push the power button on the remote. If this doesnt work press the two TV buttons at the same time and the remote should be fine.

My VIZIO vx32L/hdtv10a remote only lets me change channels. No volume up/down or power on/off function either


If your audio is being routed through a home theater system then you will not get vol control through the remote for the TV. You will have to use the home theater remote.

Menu button stopped responding


If only one button does not work at all or all do not work the unit may have a lock out feature that would be explained in the owners manual.

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.

My vizio vx32l will not turn on. vizio logo will


The main board has failed. Replace the main board will fix the problem.

By the way, where did you buy the TV? If you have bought it from Costco then try to give them a call to see if it still under warranty.

Hope this will help.
