Similar issue with Vizio 32" plasma - turning on and off repeats

Recently when turning on the tv, it will turn off...then back on, and off, and on, up to 5-6-7 times, before the tv finally comes on. Then no problem shutting off, but when starting up cold...same thing...on/off/on/off. Tv is less than a year old.'
thanks.

When I go to turn on my Vizio 32' Model VP322 HDTV10A, it half turns on then back off, repeatedly for 3 minutes before turning on. How can I fix this problem?


If you are not able to hear sound during the this process, the power supply of the TV is likely failing.

If you are able to hear sound during the 3 minute ordeal, then likely the inverter for the backlight is failing, which can also be caused by a failing lamp as well.

Try this: turn the TV on, wait for it to do its thing. Goto the menus, picture settings, and turn the brightness *down* as far as it will go. Exit out of the menu (save if prompted). Turn the TV off, wait a bit, then back on. If still same issue, it could be the power supply or inverter / lamp assembly. But, if the cycle is shorter, or comes on right away, then it is likely the lamp / inverter.

Hey guys, got 32" Vizio plasma. Having issue with the tv going through this cycle where it's having a hard time turning on, the amber light will kick on and off several times before the tv turns on. ...


If you feel good about it, take off the back and examine the capacitors on your power supply. It should be located near the center of your set. In the event you can't find it, locate where you plug in your power cord and follow the path of wires until you find the circuit board where they plug in.

That's your power supply. The capacitors are the cylindrical objects on the board. They range in size and can be very small, to quite large. Look at the tops of them. They should be flat. If you see any that are raised in the center, those capacitors are no good.

That cycle you are describing is reminiscent of other sets having a similar problem. In those cases, it is the capacitors on the power supply that cause the issue. You can replace them with higher rated capacitors, if you prefer, or you may replace the power supply.

Hope that helps.

Vizio TV wont turn on after three weeks no use


My vizio recently did the same exact thing. Vizio sent an HDTV tech out to fix it and it was the power board. He put a new board in (took 15 min) and the tv works like new.

TV WILL NOT TURN ON BUT VIZIO LIGHT IS ON


The Service Plan from Walmart is an "extended plan" on top of the manufacture warranty. Your Tv is still under warranty from the manufacture.
