A corrupted firmware can cause this. Just do a hard reset to this TV, and check. If it do not help you, contact the authorized service centre for Vizio. The firmware to Vizio is not available by internet.
There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight; will be better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

SOURCE: Power is there, but TV won't turn on

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

Outside of leaving it unplugged for 30 minutes to do a reset, there's not much you can do. It sounds as thought the set needs repair. Sounds like you have an issue with either the power supply or main board

My tv [vizio vf550m] won't respond to a remote.


Vizio is famous for having main board issues. If you have replaced the IR board the only two other items it could be is a broken wire from the IR to main or the main board has an issue. Nothing else can stop the remote from working provided the remote is working properly.

Vizio m470nv will not come on, logo blinks orange to white.


It may not be the caps at all, a lot of the new LED Back-Lit TV have faulty LEDs. They short and pull down the power supply, and to a novice it will seem like a bad power supply. That means that you must replace the bad LED's in that particular LED strip before you can fix the problem. Not an easy repair for a rookie.

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

My Vizio is plugged in to a good power spource but will not turn on. The orange vizio logo on the front panel is not lit. Has anyone else had this problem?


No standby light meaning that you have no power connect to TV, check voltage at your outlet. If it has, your TV need to check the power supply board inside.
