Yes, don't know if still looking for answer be nice if could get model number but sounds like u may either have power issue or on some of the visio sets especially older models if lcd the inverter boards may have went bad causing a service mount chip to burn a whole in itself which means no backlight no screen but unless u can take back off and ck this is only one of a few possible solutions, hope this may help.

Hi Christian,
Your Tv gave smoke and still the Vizio icon is lighting up means the TV's initial system is ready to start but the next stage has gone bad. I do not know how good you are with electronic repairing. If you can do something, open the back cove, see the damages and let me know situation or consult someone who can do it for you. Good luck.

The power button on the corner of my TV lights up but when I turn on the TV the VIZIO logo lights up but immediately turns off and the screen stays black. What could be the problem?


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

No power on vizio E371VL


Vizio TV model E371VL turned on ok and had tv show on ch.4.
Turned on the DVD player and put movie dvd in and closed tray.
We have done thhis numerous of times and never had a problem.
This time " HDMI " was showing on top right of black screen,
then " No Signal " came up on screen, then went completely black screen. Called Vizio, they had me power off and unplug set.
Push and Hold power button on TV for 30 sec. to reset.
Replug set and Vizio (lighted) on lower front of set lighted normally dull orange. Pushed power button on remote and when set did not come on, then push main power button on side of TV. Nothing, no White " Vizio " from orange light. Is this a power supply (0500-0412-1020) problem ? Thanks, Sidney (sidneysites@yahoo.com)

My vizio started smoking then screen turn black


Unplug the set and do not for any reason plug it back---unless skilled have the set looked at by a technician or a repair shop.

Best guess without seeing set would be power supply problem but it could b e in another area.

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.
Here's a link to get the info you need to get started on a warranty claim:

Do you have back light when turning on the TV? if you do then just replace the main board should resolve the problem. if you do not have back light, you will need to replace the inverter board(s) depending on your model. The inverter board(s) is located on the left side of the TV facing back of TV. you may have two inverter boards depending on your model. the other is located on the right side of the TV. Both mount vertically.

replace the sustainer boards should correct this problem. New sustainer boards may cause red and green pixilation. If this happen, replace control board and TV is as good as new.
