Re: VIZIO RP56 problem with the pictures

I heard a pop sound, and now there is no power to the VIZIO RP56... found the lamp to be out.
I replaced the lamp, and now I still don't have power to the TV
confirming the outlit is working and it's hot, I unpluged, and repluged the power cord, still not power to the TV?

VIZIO 42 CLASS RAZOR LED SMART TV M420KD picture has lots of green ghosting and thin white vertical line through left side of screen also

Hi Charlene,

please try with video input from any device,and i think you are using local antenna and it has gain problem or your tuner section of the tv is not working correctly.
if distroted pictures comes with video input signal it is video amp and processing unit problem.
you have to go for repair shop for fix that.

Vizio TV heard lot pop len lhen lost sound and picture but them comes on

l suspect power supply board has failed---someone would have to open and check all voltage going in and out of the board----if outs are missing (any) the board would have to be replaced.

If you get it open examine the filter caps on the power supply board to see if any are puffed up on top---the tops are silver and should be perfectly flat with no brown material leaking out at top or bottom.

I suspect based on description a component (likely a big IC) failed and they are usually covered with a metal heat sink (plate) so cannot be actually seen---they pop and dead set.

The picture stayed on but there was a loud sound coming from the set

Could be the flyback transformer. The noise comes from the delamination of the layers in the transformer. It's an "old age" thing. You can try slathering it with cyanoacrylate (SuperGlue), but it probably needs to be replaced. Call your manufacturers service agent to estimate costs.

If the cooling fan on my Vizio RP56 stops working, will it cause my screen to go blank, seems like bulb will not work if cooling fan is broke.

The fans are all monitored by the Micro. When one goes down, especially the lamp fan, they will not fire. If the fan is bad, replace it. If it's not I would call a service company.

Humming sound vizio

99 percent of the time the humming can only come from a defective powerboard, before it dies, you should consult your warranty. Otherwise you can order the parts and replace yourself.

Check the component jacks where they connect to the pcb for cracked solder joints and resolder to board.
