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.

    Any luck anyone getting them repaired? I have the same TV, bought as "new" on e-bay, but it was NOT new. It died after just 6 weeks of use and now I have a $1,333.00 wall decoration. Visio has been no help and e-bay has been no help. Where does one get this main-board? Thanks! A2

    Hi, I have the same problem. August of 07 I bought the same TV, sold as "new" on E-bay by Always-On-Sale. It quit working after just 6 weeks. I found out from Visio that it was not new, but a "refurbished" Jan 06 model. Visio has been no help and neither has e-bay. Where can one get this main-board that seems to be the problem? I now have a $1,333.99 wall decoration. Thanks! A2

    I had the same *exact* problem with my P50 TV last fall, when it was
    just 18 months old and (of course) 6 months out of warranty. Visio
    Support was no help whatsoever, I even sent them several emails out of
    frustration when their support group in California could not get the
    replacement board. The support group was guessing I needed either a
    power board (~$300) OR a master board

    (~$400) or both, plus a $200 technician visit. I was willing to try
    it, but in 3 months they were never able to get either one. I then
    bought a new Panasonic 50" (great so far), and of course a few weeks
    later they called me to say they had the parts. So, I have a $2700
    piece-of-junk Visio (price in early 2006) sitting around that needs
    $800 or so in repairs!

    At least I can relax with the fact that my Panasonic has an extended
    warranty and hopefully a better supply of replacement parts should I
    ever need it!

    I had the pop of death 16 months into a vizio 50. Vizio was of no help. Found a local TV repair store and $750.00 (Master board) later it was working again. Now exactly 12 months later "POP" it died again. DO NOT REPAIR, DO NOT BUY A VIZIO. THEY TREAT YOU LIKE ----AND VERY HARD TO FIND SOMEONE TO REPAIR. REALLY NEED TO START A CLASS ACTION SUIT.

    I have a Black POP up box that comes up on my Visio LCD TV after about 1 min of viewing the channel. Looks to me like the most viewed channels is where the pop up Box comes up.. I still can view other channels however I think the Black Box will eventually catch up to all. Any Ideas on this problem? Mike form PA

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.

Have a Daewoo tv bought in 2001. Top of the screen has recently started to flicker and white horizontal lines have appeared across the top half of the screen on all channels. It comes and goes but is...


This is a common problem caused by capacitors in the TV's vertical output circuit. With age and because of heat from nearby parts they break down. It's not a difficult repair to replace the bad parts, but it may not be economical to fix a small set that's 10 years old. The picture tube is living on borrowed time at this point, and this may be an excuse to invest in a new TV. Small LCD TVs are inexpensive today, and may only be a few dollars more than the cost of repairing the old one.

I don't have service literature for Daewoo sets so I can't give specific part values or locations. But the capacitors that fail are commonly found right near the vertical output integrated circuit. There are two or three that are the usual suspects. If you or someone you know is comfortable working on electronic equipment, replacing those parts might be something you could try doing yourself. New capacitors are cheap, although sometimes the shipping charges are absurd if you can't find parts locally and need to order by mail or online. Radio Shack sells some, and you might have a TV shop or stereo repair place nearby. Just be sure that new parts have the same value (capacitance and voltage) as the original. You can go a little higher on voltage, but never lower. Also be sure to observe the polarity markings and put the replacements in correctly.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

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?

My Sharp LC32D40U went black yesterday, I can still hear the speakers but no image


I have the same model 3yrs old. Your problem is a loose contact on a circuit board. Unplug the tv and remove the back cover. Remove the circuit board on the opposite side of the input plug. Clean the mating surface of the circuit board and the mount, reinstall the circuit board and tighten the screws. This is where the lost contact is occuring. Reinstall the back cover. Thats it. good luck and happy watching.

Visio 42in. Plasma TV


The TV is a Plasma, it does not have a "BackLight" as it were, that is for LCD's only.

Vizio are fobbing you off. It will need either a Y-Sustain & Buffers or a Z-Sustain.

Imput problems with Samsung DLP TV


The parts required for this are available but difficult to find. The overall repair is not that difficult for anyone that has fixed these before. You'll spend more time getting to the jack than replacing it. Try calling Samsung parts and give them the model as well as the circuit designation of the jack. This designation will be written on the PC board. For less than $5 you should be able to get the jack. Ask a local service shop to install for you and you are off and running.

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.

36" rca tv


Mine did the same thing. Just happened to have a worthless Best Buy service contract. The tech came out and said that it was the power supply and or the fly back something or other. He then prodceeded to tell me that he could not get parts for my 2 year old tv. You might check with a local tv repair shop and get some estmates on replacing these 2 parts.but at 80-100 bucks and hour for labor....

Dead t v


Good Luck! My SSL2006 tv would cuts off when turned on. Under warranty, the local auth. repair shop tried unsuccessfully to replace parts to fix it. In addition, the repair shop told me it was difficult getting thru to parts support. Either the wrong parts were sent, the right part didn?t work, or additional authorization was required to repair TV. On many occasions I made calls to Sylvania, on the repair shops urging, to find out the status on its repair parts to help get the right parts sent. The set was in an auth repair shop from Feb.-Aug. The shop couldn't fix it. It was sent to Sylvania's repair center in CA, August 18th. WHEN WILL I GET MY TV BACK? I want a new TV!! I have been without this TV for over 6 mos.! I'm very upset with customer service and its repair centers and will never buy nor will I recommend purchasing a Sylvania product.
