I have run into this before with many vizios. Your problem most likely is with the power supply. You can just try to unplug the TV and plug it back it. This most likely wont do anything but it is always worth the college try. Leave it unplugged for about 15 sec. If nothing works i recomend looking into the return policy from the place you bought it from. If you didnt purchase an extended warranty then you have a year from the manufacturer and that warranty will cover a problem like this. I do suggest taking your tv to a licensed technician with a problem with this. I dont recomend doing exploratory surgery on this TV. One question for you. Is this a plasma or lcd tv and does it make any clicking or tapping noises?

SOURCE: Vizio LCD 37 Inch Turns Off Randomly

I had a similar problem with my 32 inch plasma tv. I called vizio's
1 800 number and the guy said to unplug the tv from the wall and hold down the power button for a minute and then plug the tv back in outlet and turn on. And it works I guess from what I understood from his heavy accent was that the tv retains power and this resets it somehow. hope that was helpfull!!

Assuming the Vizio name is the powerlight, then this is your problem and solution........................The caps (capacitors) in the powerboard are going out. This is a very common problem in all class and price ranges of modern lcd and plasma tv's/ monitor's. I don't know if this problem has been like this for awhile or it just started, but either way, if the tv takes an abnormal amount of time to "warm" up then it most likely will go out all the way sometime in the (near) future. If you have a tiny bit of will and knowledge ypou can open the unit and get to the print board. Examine this for "popped" capacitors, they will have a buldging top instead of a flat one. Im gonna try to include a pic of them here, if i can get it this time, I've tried bfore lol. But you can google image a "popped" or "bad" capacitor and you would be able, with ease, to diagnose if you have any of these. Usually only one or two. Radioshack sells capacitors (couple anyway) for $1.59 each. MAKE SURE the replacement is of the SAME voltage or HIGHER, or you will be right back replacing those 2. Every capacitor has a negative pole marked with an (-) on the side of the capacitor(by one of the "legs", always puit the negative (-) "leg" of the new capacitor in the same hole in the printboard as where the previous negative (-) "leg" of the capacitor was ( a capacitor with the negative and positive "legs" put in backwards will result in the new piece "popping" as sson as you turn it on!!) make sure the "uf" rating (for example the most common popped capacitor is the 1000 uf) is the same as the one you are replacing. I needed 1000 uf, 105 c and 26v (volt) ratings for the 1 capacitor I needed to replace to fix my LG 19" lcd panel monitor I found by the trash that the light came on off, but it didn't come on. I replaced that capacitor with ; 1000uf, 85 c and 36 v (volts0...It works fine eventhough the volts and the temperature rating (36v and 85c) was not the same as the (26v(volt) and 105c ) capacitor I removed !! Further, I've replaced capacitors that had the celcius rating of 105 with the only ones Radioshack had, namely 85 c(celsius) they have been working great, but I'm not sure about any effect, nor have I heard or read (yet?) about that making an urgent difference. Many threads that I've read people have done the same, so we should be ok (my stuff has been running good for a while longer then most brand new ones!.............(all these ratings ; 'uf ' and 'c' etc are on the side of the capacitor you are replacing and on the side of the ones you are replacing them with)...For all this all you need is the cheapest solder gun u can find (I bought one for $7.99 at Radioshack), a camera (to take pictures as you go to remember how to reassemble the unit) and, once you have your materials, 20 minutes to replace 2 or 3 capacitors and you are good to go...Most monitors and tvs (lcd/plasma) I've seen you have to lay flat on the ground/bed/blanket etc, to work on (screen side down). Usually there are 2 or 3 screws (or a few more) to remove, then you will have to carefully (its comes off easily most times)insert a flat screwdriver inbetween the casing and gently pry it up as you go around the whole frame. Sometimes you have to remove the little washer arouind the cable input orso, just be gentle and you cant go wrong. Once insidet here will be a box with wires running to the sides etc...unplug, gently, these wires and open the box. Inside you will find 2 or 3 circuitboards, check them all for "popped" capacitors, replace, reassemble and plug it in....Have fun becoming an overnight tv mechanic lol!

If this has helped you (or not), please rate, thank you

VIZIO TV E552VLE , SET IS COMPLETELY DEAD NO VIZIO LIGHT AND WONT COME ON


There are only 3 working parts in most Vizio TVs. Most likely the power supply board is shot. the "motherboard" and screen itself make up the balance.

I have a 2007 Vizio that after about 4 years began having a startup problem where the screen flashes on and off until it warms up, about 10 minutes on a cold day. For the split second that it is on,


Vizio is a good television. But over the years, the Capacitors will dry up. Flat Panel tv's that come from china use cheap capacitors, even in Vizios. There are monitoring IC's, and if the reference voltage (what the capacitor is supplying to the IC), the set will not turn on, or will be intermittent. Replace the Capacitors on the power supply board and see if set comes on. The Reference IC is a good way of telling if a capacitor is bad. The IC monitors reference voltage in the supply area.

55" vizio flat panel tv with sound and no picture what is wrong


Show a torch light on the screen from a safe distance, when program runs. If you can see the picture, the problem is with the backlight and might require the attention of a qualified service technician. Also try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.
