Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Vizio VM60P lost picture. No menu either. Caps look good with no bulging or leaking. Fuses look good. There was sound, but now there isn't. Not sure what current settings are because I can't see the menu. Took the middle panel off the back and don't see anything that jumps out at me as wrong. Vizio tech says buy another. Lol. They can't even tell me what the light source is. Tried telling me it was LED.

Could be the power board, even though the caps look good.

SOURCE: No Picture & No sound. Red LED, Green LED, Red LED.

If the power supply outputs are good! Then I would say the back light inverter is bad! If the screen stays black and does not come on.

SOURCE: vizio 47" lcd no picture no sound has power

this could be one of two problem. first, check if you have back light. If you do then the problem is with the M/B. Second, if you don't have back light then the inverter is bad and needs to be replace.

SOURCE: 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.

My flat panel tv has sound but no picture, its a Akai model pdp42z5ta. I replace the invertor board but its still the same, all 5 fuses and are good, at 1.0 ohms. What should I do now.

Hi, Check main power board for bad Caps. Replace caps with same rated or better caps.(Capacitors). Look for bulged or leaking caps. Good luck

Vizio vm60p hdtv scanning problem

I had the same problem. Change your input to dtv even if you are using coaxial input. Then go to the menu screen and select tuner settings. Dtv setting should appear.

Have a vizio 47" vo47lfhdtv10a,


Problem is in either power supply or the Y-Sustain board.

The Y-Sustain is a relatively large board out of which go connections to the side of the display; it's therefore closer to either the left or the right side of the display, has at least one rather large heat sink on it and fat power cables connecting it to the main power supply.

Often there are fuses on that board - one or more. Check those.

if they are blown you can try to replace them, but expect them to blow again - usually the whole board needs to be replaced.

Hope this helpout in solving the problem...

42" magnavox lost picture but

Power supply problem. If you have electronic experience pull the rear of the panel and look at the power supply and check for bulged or leaking or busted caps replace them and i will probably be good to go. if you cant do component level repair order the whole board and also dont kill yourself - tv voltages and amperages are strong enough to kill a human.

There two possibilities:
1) there is no 24vdc output feeding the backlightinverter board due to blown parts, bad caps with leaking/bulging tops.
2) Backlight inverter board is bad, blown fuses, transistors, IC.

So, look for 24vdc first.
