This is a power supply board problem.

I fixed this problem by replacing the board. The model number for my board is EAY42539401. It cost me $55 plus shipping. A Google search for the board model number should bring up a few suppliers.

I recommend fixing it yourself if you can (all you need is a screwdriver). Replacing it yourself is MUCH cheaper than having it repaired. It took me about 45mins to fix (all the srews). I purchased the board from ModusLinkPTS.

I have a 55 Vizio 3D smart tv. This picture color fade in and out to the point that I cannot watch tv. I this a problem with the main board?

Hello Patricia,
  • There is a loose soldering connection in the Main Board. That happens because the components on the are generating a lot of heat therefore melting solder connections.
  • Stop beating on the TV's back, that only makes the problem worse.
  • Take it to a shop.Or if you are a tech, try locating the loose connection(s) and solder it back.
  • Also check your Warranty Period, It may cost you 0$. Call Vizio if you still have Warranty on the TV.

Good Luck,

Vizio SV370XVT with LONG Warmup...Power Supply? Mainboard? T-Con?

There should be no problem related to warm-up to flat panel TVs. It is only related to CRT based TVs. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

My vizio tv keeps shutting off

If it turns on reliably but won't stay on, try putting a portable fan pointed at the rear of the set.
If this prolongs operation, it may be a semiconductor at fault or an early warning of a common problem caused by chemical (electrolytic) capacitors going bad in the switched mode power supply.If this is the case, the problem will continue to get worse until it no longer turns on at all.

My flatscreen tv is distorted

Speakers can cause problems with the correct display of video on TVs but usuall it only concerns direct view tv. Projectors should not have any problems or flat screens. I think you have a different problem Explain better what you mean by distortion in the JVC. Let me know and I will try to help you.

I have a Vizio 42LCD TV, no sound and no picture. It just went black all of a sudden. I was just wondering what it could be. The tv was purchased in 2006, so no warranty. It would problably cost too much...

I would at least remove the back and
look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.
You can get the new power supply module (make sure it matches the picture on the website) here (which is more likely):

Yellow light is so I have power but remote or

Its a vizio l37. I bought it in 2004 from Sams and haven't had any problems until now. We took it to a repair shop and they charged me $55 to tell me it was dead. They said they could fix it by replacing the main board which costs $250 with an additional $250 in labor. We said no thanks to the $500 repair and bought a new tv for $600. Now its in the garage and I'm wondering if there is something I can do to fix it for less. Seems like a waste.

Repairman for your TV yet?

Actually I found quite a bit of info regarding the problem and confirming that it has to be the caps on the hyperboard as hdtvman was mentionning.
I've bought the caps for less then $3, and will give a try at replacing them probably next weekend. I have nothing to loose as it's getting worse day by day now. If I screw up I can alway order the hyperboard from PTS...

Clicking noise when turning on the tv. Everything works but the clicking.

When you turn your tv off turn it off using the remote control then turn off the tvs switch itself... Try this for a few days hope it works for you.
