Question about Vizio VP50 10A 50 in. Plasma TV

4 Answers

Vizio VP50hdtv10a problems The "TV" mode, I can only hear sound. All the channel are black and white dots all over The "DTV" mode was working and now is gone after we installed a new cable box today The "AV" mode has not image no sound at all. It's dead. However, I can still see/hear from "Component" and "RGB" modes. It's 2+ years old and out of any warrenty (from VIZIO and Costco). Somehow I am not so shocked that it breaks right when we are off the warrenty. I called VIZIO authorized dealship and they are asking $600+ flat rate for repair (regarding small or big problems) which is 2/3 of the price for getting a same brand new VIZIO tv in costco. I am not sure what should I do??? Please help!

If you still have audio and video from component and RGB which means your sustainer boards (the boards on the two sides that powers up your screen) are working. All you have to do is replace the main board. you can buy parts at Vizparts.com, Vancebaldwin.com or shopjimmy.com. Make sure that you give them the correct model and serial number so they can send you the correct part.

I have the same problem.... my coax. AV1 and AV2 are not working, however Component 1 and 2, HDMI 1 and 2 all work fine ...for now.....grrrr....2 years for me as well.... I thinking that those three inputs are on the same board.... (coax, AV1, and AV2) I actually diagnosed the problem by troubleshooting the AV inputs (trying to hook up my WII) then I thought to myself.....maybe the coaxial input is working...so I went and bought a RF Modulator...and found that the screen was scrambled....changed out the coax cable and still same result ...audio no prob...just bogus video.....

My solution:

now...if you can not afford any of the above..... you can try to buy a composite to component converter (or cable)..... or composite to HDMI ..something of that nature.....whatever you are trying to use ...convert it to the input type that you know is working....

Also one could buy an upconverting receiver and you may be able to upconvert all of you various formats all to one HDMI cable.

If you have a voltmeter, take off the back and check the power outputs on the power supply module.

Look through the ventilation slits at the back of the TV with the room lights out. If you do not see white light light bleeding through the back, you have a back light failure. It could be the inverter circuit which lights up the CCFL ( cold cathode fluorescent lamp ). You will need professional help to replace it and could cost you about 70 to 100 $ to fix.

Why won't my new Vizio DTV work on an antenna without the digital box?


Do you have the antenna aimed correctly and the correct antenna for the distance between your location and the stations? Check antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for the directions to the stations you should be able to receive. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the station list. TVfool gives the stations you should get with various different types of antennas. Tall trees and buildings will block signal strength so consider the environment around you.

With digital signals, if you do not have enough signal strength for a given tuner, the channel will not come in. An amplifier may help you get the signal, particularly if the signal is shared to several devices. Failure of an amplifier or lightning surge protection can stop the signal from reaching the TV. A surge through the antenna can damage the tuner.

A damaged cable can also be a source of a problem. Check the outside portion of the wire as well as the interior wires. Replace any that have damaged insulation or ends.

For this TV, if you have done a channel scan with the TV set to the Input TV/DTV, and the Signal Source set to Antenna. Turn the antenna and then set the Additional Scan to On. (Menu > TV > Channels > Additional Scan.) Then do another channel scan.

VIZIO TV Black screen. Cannot turn off TV without unplugging.


I had a similar 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. I didnt hear an arcing sound though. 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. I would check the ceramic fuse first on the board that gets power from the plug.

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.

I can't scan DTV channels on my vizio 52''


do you have antenna or cable? if you have antena hook directly to the coax, go to menu, TV, tuner and pick antenna and scan. If you have cable hook directly to your coax repeat the previous step but pick cable instead of antenna. Notice if you have a cable box, you will not need to scan for channel since it will be on channel 3, 4 or any other input you may use.

Plasma does stay powered on


Your sustainer board is probably bad. You need to get the Y & Z sustainer boards replace then it should be okay.
