Question about Vizio VO47L 47 in. LCD TV

2 Answers

Power is there, but TV won't turn on

Power is well connected. Product: (Vizio GV47 LF HDTV 10A)
Here's the TV's behavior:
1. It only turns on around once or twice a day, depending on how long the TV stays on.
2. Whenever it turns on, there is one "click" sound, and the orange Vizio logo turns white. When it doesn't turn on, there are TWO "click" sounds, but orange Vizio logo still remains as white Vizio log.
3. If the TV is not turned on for a complete one to two days, it will turn on the first time you try it.
4. When TV does not turn on in the first try, I turn it back off (to orange Vizio logo), wait arond 10-20 seconds, and try it again. It will turn on subject to the condition of #1 above.

Is it the power inverter? Mainboard? How hard is it to change those manually? Thanks!

Stored voltages are high no touching these circuts becuase they hold charges and alot of screws.
fualty capacitors you say after a while it stays on theres a full charge in the unit theres some type of discharging effect on the set after its off for a while. voltage goes to low or unstable after it is off for a while. your better off getting the service docs for this set if you want to diy..other wise get a tv tech to check it for you. hope this helps

Vizio E550VL won't turn on. The vizio logo just flashes orange.


Good day!!!!


That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

Where do to plug in the cord to connect the tv to the DVD player?


Hello

You have several options for connecting your DVD player to your GV42L FHDTV10A - HDMI,

Component, S-Video and Composite (AV) inputs. Based on your home theater configuration, you can
decide which option is the right one for you.
connected to the HDMI input of the VIZIO GV42L FHDTV10A for optimal results.

To maintain the display quality, use a VIZIO certified HDMI cable available up to 10 meters or less.

1. Turn off the power to the LCD HDTV and DVD player.

2. Connect a HDMI cable to the HDMI output of your DVD player and the other end to the HDMI

Input (white color area) at the rear of the LCD HDTV.

3. Turn on the power to the LCD HDTV and your DVD player.

4. Select HDMI using the INPUT button on the remote or side of the LCD HDTV, or directly by
pressing the HDMI button on the Remote Control.

a) If you are already using the HDMI 1 input for another component, or you do not want to use

the HDMI 1 input for the DVD player, you can connect the DVD player to the HDMI 2

connection.

b) Refer to your DVD player user manual for more information about the video output
requirements of the product.
OK

Tv Vizio VX37L HDTV 10A


Normally new screens run about 100.00 less than a new tv costs and then you have to get it installed! There is now easy way around it. You would be better off just to get a new one>

I have a vw32l hdtv 10a vizio and the screen is black when i turn on.


These seem to have unreliable power supplies, so I would suggest starting there. If you are capable of measuring outputs, they are conveniently marked. If you are not, any TV repair shop should be able to check it for you. Check with Vizio directly for parts. They are the cheapest source I was able to find for replacement parts. The supply for mine was a mere $82 when most online sources were up to $100 more.

Set will not turn on


VP322 HDTV 10a is notorious for popping 4 radial capacitors on the power control board . Two of them are 1000uF 25A, and two 3000uF 10A. You can spot them because the tops will be bulged, and leaking electrolite. Make sure you replace them with radial electrolite caps> they coat 'round $10.

I have a Vizio hdtv 32'' lcd the power button is yellow, when I turn the tv on the button turns green but thats all that happens no pic or sound the model is Vizio L32HDTV 10A


I would guess the power supply went bad. The Vizio parts store sells the replacement for $82. Cheap fix for a decent TV.

Replacing it only requires a moderate mechanical skill. Removing the screws from the case is the hardest part. Remember to unplug the TV before you attempt this repair, or contact a local repair shop. They may only charge a small fee to install it for you.

No picture or sound, light comes on in the front and have to unplug tv to turn it off.


I had this exact problem on my Vizio 47" HDTV. I removed the speakers and all the screws on the back cover. Took the cover off and located the fuses on the largest circuit board. The are in the upper right hand corner of the board. There are 3 of them in a row labeled LF 1.5, LF 3.0 and LF 3.0. The are white in color with copper ends. I took a volt meter and measured continuity across all fuses individually and found the LF 1.5 to be blown. The guy at the electronics store sold me a barrel 1.5A fuse and told me to soldier it across the top of the blown fuse. It took an extra set of hands but the TV works perfectly.

Bad capacitors in the power supply. Open it up and look for swollen electrolytics.
