SOURCE: Vizio TV will not turn on.

I had the same problem. The orange/green light in the front was off as well. I unplugged it, held don the power button for one minute then plugged it back in. It's working now, but who knows how long it will last. I found that solution elsewhere on the site. Thanks for the tip whoever you are!

The Service Plan from Walmart is an "extended plan" on top of the manufacture warranty. Your Tv is still under warranty from the manufacture.
Here's a link to get the info you need to get started on a warranty claim:

SOURCE: power

The reason the tv is turning itself off, because most TVs have a "Protection Mode" that turns the unit off when it detects a failed part inside the tv.
The most likely the tv has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
Being that the TV is under a year old, it should be still under manufacture warranty. Last thing you want do is void the warranty by opening up the TV. Here's some info to get you started on the warranty:

If it not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Hey there, I have a 6 month old vizio 32" LCD 60hz


LCD inverter module may have encountered a failure. Most common is an electrolytic capacitor failing in the power supply. Examine the board to see if any of the caps have a bloated or raised top, they should not be swollen or leaky. If so find the replacement capacitor # on line and replace. You will require a modicum of soldering skills. You indicate the tv is 6 months old.
Return it for warranty service, do not open your tv or you will void your consumer warranty.

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.

I EMAILED VIZIO ABOUT MY PROBLEM. THEY RESPONDED IN 3 DAYS. THE TECH AND I THEN TRADED A COUPLE OF EMAILS. HE CONFIRMED THE INFO ABOUT THE TV WITH ME. HE EMAILED ME THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM AND PART NUMBER. IT WAS THE MAIN BOARD. I ORDERED THE PART AT VIZPARTS.COM FOR ABOUT 180.00. INSTALLED IT MYSELF AND THE TV WORKS FINE. I WISH IT HAD BEEN UNDER WARRANTY BUT IT WAS 18 MONTHS OLD AND THE WARRANTY WAS FOR 12 MONTHS.
