If connected to your Internet, either cable or wireless, it may be downloading some updates. Earlier this year, the Vizio logo on mine came on with the power then dimmed out like normal (set to "off" in the settings) but the screen remained blank for more than the usual 20-or-so seconds. For some reason I just left it on after several attempts (typically not the best policy when something does not seem to be operating as expected) and, after a few minutes, it came back to life. Only then was there a message about the updates. Apparently, lack of a "Please wait for a moment while..." message seems to have been an oversight by the programmers.
your television is displaying a blue screen or no signal message and
then turning off, your TV may be at an inactive input. Here's how you
can get back to watching your TV: 1. Powering on your
TV and press the INPUT button on the VIZIO remote control repeatedly
until a picture re-appears. 2. If this does not work, try again but press the button slower this time.
I had the same issue happen to my vizio lcd just this weekend. Everyone is telling me is a bulb or backlight or something. It would explain the loud pop and no picture, but I'm not getting sound either so I'm not sure what exactly happened. Only after about 2 years too. I'm trying to find parts to just fix it myself.
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.
If the led light is on you only need to replace the mainboard. and yes you can do it yourself, its pretty easy just order a new mainboard, open the TV and replace the mainboard, it is as easy as it sounds.
I have the Vizio JV50P (Plasma) after 2 months it's started to make a loud pop sound then no picture. Vizio sent a third part repair man to replace the power board, main board, left and right sustainer boards and no less then 24 hours later... I had the same issue. I was just on the phone this evening with "Vizio level 3 support" and they out right lied to me. They told me they never heard of this issue before and yet it all over the internet. Shame on me for not searching the internet more thoroughly for known issues with Vizio products. If I had I would have easily found the term that seems to have associated itself with the Vizio’s line of flat panel TV’s ‘The Pop Of Death” I am current climbing the Vizio Org Chart to get my money back. I have spoken from level 1 thru level 3 tech support. Who were willing to replace the defective unit with a refurbished unit!!!NO WAY! Then I spoke with a customer service rep and then his supervisor. “No Help!!!” They read from a script and showed no compassion for my issue. They too wanted to send me a refurbished set that is only covered by the balance of my warranty! A set that has the same issue that they can not even prevent from occurring and sets made as recent as 9/07 (manufactures date), new sets! I just left a voice mail message with the Customer Service Manager of Vizio corporate (aka V, inc.) and will await his call back tomorrow. I then searched the internet and found the term that seems to be growing in association to Vizio… ‘The Pop Of Death’ I can not wait to hit him with that term tomorrow! If I do not hear back from him, I will contact his superior. It’s very easy to find that information on the BBB. As far as I am concern Vizio is not only a poor product but a deceptive company who so far does not stand by their product. I will follow up this post in a week or so.
