My tv did this same thing before it just died all together. You are still under warranty so you'll want to give Vizio a call and they will have a tech come out and fix it for you (if its over 32 inches). The reason it does this is because the power board in the tv is shorting out and dying. Vizio put in really bad power boards and so now they are all going out. They sent a guy out to be a week after calling them initally and now my tv works again.

My vizio worked fine and then it will not turn on unless the manual button is pushed and held numerous times. once on the remote works fine and can turn off. any cheap or easy remedy?


could be just bad capacitors on the power supply board they tend to puff up on top and then several attempts of pressing the power buitton is required to finally get the set to power up.

replace the sustainer boards should correct this problem. New sustainer boards may cause red and green pixilation. If this happen, replace control board and TV is as good as new.
