Visio P50 HDM television

Visio has been difficult at best to help with service/parts for our 2 year old tv, so we have found through our local tv repair shop that we need 1 new board, #6871QYA039A. The technician is unsuccessful in ordering this part, and so are we. Visio themselves say they will not sell the part direct, and we must pay astronomical price to have someone visit. We may as well buy a new tv! What can we do? The television is out of warranty.

Re: Visio P50 HDM television

Well, I have the same problem - I have a Vizio P50 HDM that died after 16 months of use (1 year warranty). I called Vizio and they gave me the number of their authorized service company. They told me that it was the YSUS board which would have to be replaced with the ZSUS board - $835.00 visit including parts. That was three months ago and they are still not here. This is a common problem - Do a Google search for the "Vizio Pop of Death". It seems most are not repairable and have to be replaced. Now I have a $2700 wall decoration. One idea might be to do a search on Ebay for the part number - More and more are showing up on Ebay from units with cracked screens - Good Luck. I was a component level TV tech for 20 years and will do this myself, probably with parts from Ebay. Some say they have had success taking it back to Costco or Sams, even after two years - If you got it at one of these stores, it wouldn't hurt to try.

Visio 1080p screen went light

Our Visio 42" flat screen TV did the same thing. It didn't happen that often but sometimes it would go darker or the sound would go off until I changed the channel or turned TV Off then back On. I contacted Visio through my warranty and they sent me a flash drive to install info on my TV. Did not fix the problems. A year later before warranty ended I contacted Visio again. They sent a huge box for me to pack my TV in to send to the warehouse where they fix everything. It took about 2 wks. to get it back. Worked fine for about 4 months and the problems continued. I will not buy another Visio TV. I found out that they had many problems with several models.

I have a Visio LCD TV 2 years old not working -- i have a backlight but not screen

about a year ago our visio tv started having lines going up and down from the bottom to the top. we called direct tv and they could not find anything wrong with the cable. the problem got better and then worse. finally we called the tv repair man and he said it was the monitor and that it cost more to replace the part than it does to buy a new tv. that means after about a year that we purchased it the tv monitor was bad. now what do we do?

P42HDTV Visio Plasma TV. The picture is bad grainy/snowy.

Doing some warranty work for Visio, I ran into this same problem. I replaced the video and power boards, among other things. Turned out to be a bad panel, which isnt viable to replace. Best to get Visio to agree they made a lemon (as all their products are in my humble opinion) and have them send you a new tv, or even better, buy a tv that is NOT a visio. You can get great deals on LG and Samsung these days, both decent quality tvs.

The link below is where you can get the information about how to buy Fujitsu television parts. I have no idea if they will sell to non contracted servicers. These sets are serviced mainly by board swapping. You can eaily buy boards that you think are defective, and they are not the fault. This is the gamble you will be taking when servicing these sets yourself.

Directv Tivo recorder no remote programming code for Visio 37''

If it were a Tivo series 3 you might have better luck with it.

I've had my series 2 Tivo for about 2 1/2 years and never found the correct codes for it. I think it works off of a list of TVs manufactures about 3 years ago.

Vizio p50 hdm

Sounds like a bad power supply. I have a GV42L 42" manufactured in march 2007. It works perfect except the screen has a fracture on it. The warranty is voided because we damaged the screen. I can sell this to somone who has a good screen but needs boards or speakers, etc. Or I will buy your tv that has a good screen but damaged boards in it.

Vizio P50 Death pop no more video.. gets sound.. 2 yr old set pais $1800 at costco.
Common Issue.. Called Vizio .. told me has lifetime full waranty.. they knew from pop and no video what was wrong.. ordered parts without looking at set. Sending repairman out all in lass than 1 week.
Just be nice when you call.
They tell you to unplug for 30 sec. Plug back in and hold powerbutton when replug... it doesnt work. Get kicked up to level 2 support... problem solved... as long as repair works...
