Question about Flat Panel Televisions
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.
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.
