Question about Vizio VW42LF 42 in. LCD HDTV
Last night I was watching the game and all the sudden there was a loud "pop" sound that came from the tv and it shut down. No other power to the house went off and there we no storms out. Also, I have the tv and all my a/v equipment run through a very high end surge protector. None of the other equipment went off. I switched the plug to another wall plug in and it still didnt work. I am wondering if it is the power source inside the tv because the Visio symbol below the screen is not lit up. It usually stays orange when the tv is off but plugged in. There doesnt seem to be any power getting to the tv. Any ideas?
Sounds like the power supply section in your tv has a bad component. Probably a bad capacitor or a surface mounted diode. One thing is for sure: something has shorted and is causing your power supply section to not fire up. Suprising to me because Visio has a good track record.
