Picture went out on p50hdm Vizio Plazma tv after loud POP

Hello, I have a p50hdm Vizio Plazma tv and while someone was watching it there was a loud POP and the picture went out.
The sound seemed to be ok, but no picture at all. I've tried to switch video inputs and now I get no sound. That may be just because I'm on the wrong input.

It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:

  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Turn on the TV.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.

I have a Vizio p50hdm while watching heard a pop noise and tv went out cant turn back on.I replaced main board and power board and still doesn't come on any Ideas?


The power amplifier chip (which goes "pop" when it goes bad) may be located on the board where the IR sensor is. Sometimes (but not always) you can make the TV come on by holding the power button in _until_ the TV comes on. But that usually only works when the chip is "going" bad. If you heard the pop, it's probably shot. Also, check for a fuse on _any_ of the boards, and possibly a main fuse at the back of the TV.

Vizio p50hdm loud pop from inside tv now screen is dim


Hi there! This could be as a result of several boards. Y-sus, Z-Sus or power supply. One would need to check that all the relevant Voltages on the power supply are actually present. Next would be to check the Fuses on either Y or Z-Sus boards. The board with the fuse blown would most likely be the one at fault. However it blows for a reason so replacing the fuse on these boards will probably not help. But it is worth a shot. If all else fails refer to a repairer. If you can get the boards and want to try doing it yourself it may or may not prove to be successful. Please beware of HIGH CURRENT before you proceed. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004

Vizio P50HDM No Picture/No Sound


replace the sustainer boards should correct this problem. New sustainer boards may cause red and green pixilation. If this happen, replace control board and TV is as good as new.

VIZIO BLACK SCREEN


That problem is the Ysus board, Sometimes people will replace the Zboard at the same time. If you bought it at costco a couple of years ago you are in luck costco will refund your purchase price, costco has changed the return policy and newer tv's are not refunded, but something to look into
