Vizio on the fritz

Hi all, I have a vizio p50, last night was watching ok then heard something pop inside tv, image got dim
and menus and on screen display got very slow.
Now it wont even turn on, could the power supply cause this? this tv would every now and then have a constantly clicking relay and not turn on. Any input would be apreciated

    thanks bobbyj!! replaced the board and everything is back to normal.
    I checked visually all components & with ohmmeter checked all diodes on the board and found nothing wrong, so I'm assuming that one of the IC"S under the heat sinks is fried, surely because of over heat. So I added a small power supply fan on top in between both heat sinks and wired it to the stock fans, to help in the cooling, will add one to the ysus in the future. Lets see if this solves the 18 month brake down hump on these units.
    Thanks again

My son turned on my 1080pi tv last night and heard a loud pop and then smelt a burning smell. Do I need to take this to a repair shop or can I fix it myself? What would the cost be?

Something bursted out inside your tV. Probably it will be a mains filter capacitor. If this type of capacitor bursts out, it will spill the electrolyte liquid all over the surroundings, which is an electrically conductive material. So never turn ON this TV until it has been throughly cleaned and repaired. Power supply board inside your Tv is faulty. OK.

I have a 60" Sony

It seems lamp/ bulb popped again, check lamp inside tv.
If tv does not show red blinking light then it would be lamp that knocked off, replace lamp in tv to fix its problem, please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.
Let me know if you have additional question.

We heard a pop last night the screen went black but we can still hear and the tv turns off and on

Most likely the loud pop that you heard was the lamp filament shattering and you can verify that by physically inspecting it,the UHP lamps have a life expectancy of 6000 to 8000 lamp hours when they are Phillips and from 3500 to 4500 lamp hours if it is an Osram,and you can find this items on or on Ebay
Please rate this answer if it was heplfull

Was watching my vizio and i heard a pop and the screen went blank, but there still is sound, its about 4 years old can it be fixed and ballpark on how much it would cost to fix!

Main Power Supply issue! The repair would cost you more than what a new flat panel would cost you. Vizio is a Chinese made TV. Only lasting 3.5 to 4 years. Go out and buy yourself a new Christmas gift a new flat screen TV. Try to get a name brand one like Sony, Samsung or Panasonic. They have great service records. Vizio is your typical breaks, throw it away.
Blessings always,

I heard a pop and screen wet black. red lamp

Lamp inside TV is broken and requires replacement. Pop sound was its breaking sound.
Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual, pretty easy.
Please buy Sony original lamp for TV safety and avoid aftermarket/ cheap lamp.
Let me know if you need to download user manual copy.
