Question about Vizio 60" E601I-A3 Full HD LED-LCD TV

Open Question

Vizio e601i-a3 TV: Powered up, it goes to blacklight mode, to vizio logo mode on screen and goes to blank screen.

I have a Vizio e601i-a3 and this tv is one of serial number,defective tv. Took cover off and checked voltages on power supply/led board. Notices that no voltages coming out of cn301 terminal connection. Also tried it with terminal connection off.Still the same thing T-con board has been replaced with the new t- con board ZC. Wish is the new replacement board for this series. Old t-con board shows the same symptom.Since no voltages coming out of cn301. Does this mean the power supply/led board needs to be replaced? I want to make sure it is not the backlight leds that is bad, before replacing some or all the boards. BTW: What is the voltages that should be coming out of terminalconnection at CN301? Also, terminal connection at cn201 shows the correct voltages coming off this side of the board. Need some help here? Where do I go from here?

Above is a link for a service manual.

Hi, well I applaud you for starting in the right place, The power supply, as, if, that isn't right nothing else can be. But you simply cannot do anything without a Service Manual. In this it has everything one needs to repair the set. OK if it is shutting down, after that amount of time, of working and then faulting, then it is most definitely a "Thermal" problem, the way we "Find" problems such as this is "Freeze Spray" you use this on each component that is suspected of being the "Culprit" and you will soon,find that errant component. Now also not every fault is a Capacitor, I see many, many people that think, that Capacitors are always the "Culprit" now while that may be true in a few cases, a faulty Electrolytic Cap, or ordinary, Cap goes faulty, this is only a SYMPTOM, something has damaged those caps causing them to "Fail". One MUST always find the root "Cause", otherwise if you just treat, the SYMPTOM, the "Cause" will just make the "Symptom" come back, in short order, as the prime cause still, hasn't been fixed., Now Capacitors hate AC ripple, or Over Voltage. Thats it. Oh.. and Heat, if these Capacitors, are too close to a Heat Source, then thats a prime cause of failure. Resistors, hardly ever go faulty,and if they do, it is generally obvious. However it doesn't hurt to check values with our Multimeter. Remember though resistors are made, with up to 20% tolerance from stated value, as such, are not too critical, unless in Timing circuits etc. Always check, the Values, of resistors, as with any other component, with the power OFF. Now Diodes especially "Zener Diode", are another thing to check, those and ordinary "Signal Diode" should always be suspect. next we have Transistors and IC's. The Transistors MUST ALL be checked to see if they have a good, "Junction" this is done, with our meter set to "Diode Test" and usually are about 0.6 to 0.7. With IC's you must check, voltage levels, or Logic Levels, going in and out, have a look at the circuit diagram, and it will tell you what they should be. It is a good idea to always measure the Power Supply voltages, see if a "Rail" is Low, that will be because some component has gone somewhat or all short circuit, to Earth, now, if the "Rail" is Higher, suspect an "Open Circuit" component, like a Diode, or Transistor. The voltages expressed in the manual are spot on, ANY variation MUST be investigated. I have been doing all this for over 30 years now, and I do indeed wish, we could have a set of "Symptoms" and be ables to say.. "Oh that;s the so-in-so and replace this" however unfortunately this although does happen, most "Symptoms" can have literally tens, of "Causes" all often "Interlinked" One simply has to do a methodical troubleshooting procedure, and always think, "are my Voltages Correct" as this is how, you Fix the problem, by making them so. Keep up the good work. If that link above doesn't furnish a Service manual, it is imperative you get one, even if you must pay for it. It will pay for itself in about 2 mins.
Gee it seems that you have replaced just about the entire "Guts" of the set, in the industry we call this the "Shot gun" method, however it seldom works in reality. One really needs to isolate the Cause, of the "Fault" and repair that and also any damage done by that. As if one doesn't remove the "Cause" it will simply fault again when the "New" bit is connected up. One needs to get the unit going section by section, testing and proving the prior section before connecting up to the next, which also must be tested to make sure that what you are going to connect will NOT damage what you are connecting it to.
Also unfortunately, these LED's Blinks, are NOT an error code in actual fact.
What you need to do is use the service manual, and follow through the troubleshooting steps, to isolate and hopefully repair your problem.
Basically it is all about voltages and if they are correct, a Higher voltage than stated usually means a component is Open circuit or a very high resistance, whereas a Lower than stated voltage usually indicates a Short Circuit, or low value resistance component, is "Faulty". These are all in the SM, as are the waveforms that must be checked, it is indeed very difficult to repair electronics these days without specialised equipment and even though I have over 30 years experience i find it difficult, so good luck.

SOURCE: i have a vizio razor led m470vt. power light flashes dim to bright. no screen but have 120v into board. replaced power board but did not fix????

I have this same problem with my Vizio. Model E601i-A3
60" LED, believe. Maybe 64"

Anyway, the solution is much simpler than these other answers make it sound. 1) Unplug tv from wall.
2) Unplug all external devices (all HDMI ports, any cable hookups, any rgb/vga connections, and any speakers attached.)
3) Unplug USB drives/attachments.
4) Plug TV back into outlet.

It should power up just fine. Then you can go ahead and reattach all your devices WITH THE TV SCREEN ON, reattach your USB sticks and you should be good to go.

Every time the TV is moved or is unplugged for any period of time, follow these procedures. The real culprit is the USB drives - the TV, like many laptops I've had, can't boot up with them attached. Thankfully once the TV learns what they are they no longer have to be removed.

SOURCE: I have in a Vizio Model Number E601i-A3 that lighting got. If I replace the power supply board, main/input board, & the t-con board, should that fix it or am I missing something? Help is appreciated!

To get help need to know exactly what the symptoms are so that wrong boards do not get replaced. Now doesn't that make sense?

I have a Vizio E601i-A3. The "Vizio" emblem does not light up and the screen does not light up. Is it most likely power board that needs to be replaced?


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://electronicshelponline.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.

Command voltage to switch ON the LED driver section, should come from the main board's system control section. It do not come now.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
