SOURCE: My 55" vizio randomly shuts

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.


Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you.


1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

Remember, TVs CONTAIN HIGH VOLTAGE AND CAN KILL YOU! Do this at your own risk.

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found online. I would definitely shop around though.


3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.


Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

It sounds like an overheating issue with the T-con board. You shouldn't have to run a house fan behind the TV to keep the screen on. Make sure you have the TV in a place where there is enough space around it to allow for air flow. Also, check to make sure the ventilation slots on the back of the TV are not blocked with dust.

My tv randomly shuts off


Fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

How do i connect wireless keyboard to the TV


Often you can only use "approved" input devices such as keyboards and remotes. This TV came with a Bluetooth remote that has a keyboard on it. You may not be able to connect any other keyboard to it. If you have a Bluetooth keyboard, you can try to connect it if the option is available in the menu (usually setup section). You can also call Vizio to verify if you can connect any other keyboard to the TV besides the remote that came with it.

Button on remote not working


Dear xa_becca,
The button must have been worn out with constant use. Try pressing it a bit harder or simply go out and buy a new remote.
