Vizio L32 won't power up since power surge

Vizio L32 HDTV10A (May 06) won't power up since power surge. Next time I'll have my surge protector in place. Is there a power "reset" or do I likely need to replace a power board or component?

Yes, I do in home warranty work on vizeo, it sounds like you need a power board and perhaps a main board. The power board is what pooped.

SOURCE: Vizio L32 HDTV10A is dead.


If the TV is completely dead, then it is either power cord, wall socket, or the power supply board inside the TV.

The wall socket is easily tested connecting a different appliance.

Check if the power cord if fused. If it is fused, then replace the fuse. The power cord is tested using a multimeter set on impedance to read if there is continuity between prongs and contact to PSU inside the TV (or connector if power cord is not soldered).

The PSU is tested checking the zener and the resistors in the AC stage of the circuit, then visually checking capacitors and testing components in the PSU. Often it is possible to spot a burnt area or a bulged capacitor at a glance.

Here the PSU:

Call the seller to ensure that the PSU is the right part for your model. The old PSU must be tested before replacement.

My VIZIO vx32L/hdtv10a remote only lets me change channels. No volume up/down or power on/off function either

If your audio is being routed through a home theater system then you will not get vol control through the remote for the TV. You will have to use the home theater remote.

No power

Most likely the power supply board. Have a repair shop check it out.

The company is not taking ownership of the problem.. They suggest things like that there is a problem with the a surge protector or that there is a problem with your electrical outlet. There can't be this many bad electrical outlets or surge protectors that have the same problem with vizio televisions.... My advice is to just get a new tv.

Bad capacitors in the power supply. Open it up and look for swollen electrolytics.
