I have a 32" vizio plasma that wont turn on


You need to check the output voltages of the power supply to see which one goes off. It may be due to short circuits some where.If otherwise, Your power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like, to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

I hope this will help in solving the problem......

Vizio vp322 No power, no amber light. Replaced power supply board still no power, What else can be affecting this tv?

Hi the first thing I would ask is are you sure that power supply that you bought is good? If you are sure your power supply I would check the power filter that connects the power cord to the power supply to make sure there is voltage getting to your power supply. If that checks out the only other thing to check is the signal board. You can check to see if there is power getting to your signal board if there is then it's provably your signal board. You can find parts for that TV at

When I hit the power button on my 32" Vizio Plasma


You have a TV with a failing power supply board. There are parts in the power supply called capacitors that start failing and this causes the power supply to not be able to properly filter the voltages. When you keep turning it on and off the capacitors will finally hold a charge correctly so the voltages will stabilize and the TV turns on ok until the next time you turn it off. As time goes by the capacitors will degrade more until the TV will not work any more. If you can solder then you should be able to repair the TV yourself. We have a page on our web site
That explains what capacitors are and how to determine the bad ones that have failed. If you replace the failed capacitors in the power supply then you should have a working TV again.

I have a Vizio VP322 plasma, It started cicking on and off, and now it acts like it is not getting any power.

As with most equipment, you need to have the power supply checked by a qualified tech. really nothing the consumer can service. Julio
