The main power supply , which is somewhat active even when the set is 'off,' is damaged.
With luck (a lot of it) it may have gotten enough spike to cause one of the (few) protective parts to fail, rather than serious damage having resulted.
Leave the set upplugged for at least hours (overnight is better) to allow certain components to discharge and remove the back panel from the set. Look for obvious signs of burning/damage and possibley a fuse.
There is a part that limits peak voltages coming in from the AC line that often explodes when hit hard; if not in pieces, it is a disk-like device, mounted vertically with leads coming from the sides or bottom of the disk. If you see only two wires sticking up and going nowhere, that is where the part once was and the damage is probably severe enough to make replacement of the supply necessary and this may not be the end of the repair.
Sorry -

It appears that during the storm there may have been an electrical surge that damaged the electronics of your tv. If the tuner is working fine then the affected area (board) is the one that has the HDMI input sources.

Vizio plasma tv will not turn on by button or remote, cable box is lit. We had a loss of power last night due to a storm. What do we do to check it.


hi usually the cause of won't power on problem due to the storm is the current fluctuation which the tendency is power supply failure. now since totally dead set what you need is to open the tv unit then look for the power supply where the power cord is connected. check obvious defective component part like blown fuse and burnt part like resistor and capacitor. just replaced with the same value and ratings to avoid damage from others component.if their is no problem with the power supply the output voltages are good the main board get damaged. good luck thanks for consulting the fixya.

HELP PLEASE Vizio Plasma tv broken again - possible driver board?


This could cause by the power supply or the mainboard.

- If the LED stay Green when you turn on the TV. But you can not turn it off, in this case the main board has failed. Replace the mainboard will fix the problem.

- If the LED light always stay at Orange, you can not turn on of off. In this case the mainboard also has failed.

- If you turn on the TV you will hear the power supply click on the LED is green then it click off the light turn Orange. In this case the power supply has failed.

Which boards did the repair shop replace?

Hope this will help.

Vizio P4 Plasma green blotches


The same thing happened to me Twice!. First time it was under warranty. Now it it out and Vizio has not interest in helping me. The first time the repair man changed the motherboard, which worked for about a year. Looks like I will be buying a new TV soon, but certainly NOT a Vizio, they are junk
Anyone out there know how much a motherboard costs?
