Vizio vp332 will not power on

Over the last 3 weeks I would have to power on the tv 2 or 3 times before it would stay on. yesterday when i tried power on tv it would not not power up at all.
I move tv to a known good outlet
I changed power cord ( my mother has the same tv swapped cord with hers and her tv works mine will not power on with her power cord either)
changed batteries in remote control
i have owned the tv for about 18 months and watch tv about 2 or 3 hours a day.

It sounds like a powersupply problem. Bad caps on the board. I've found some vizios with bad caps along the aluminum heat sink.

VIZIO TV , stopped coming on .


have the power control / regulator card checked and replaced if necessary. It is probably not a mainboard fault as it boots on ocassionally, maybe the board is on the way out.

I have a Vizio 42 in LCD, model VO420E. The TV makes a loud screeching noise, the screen goes crazy and then shuts off and starts again. There sometimes is a pop. Other times the TV just makes the POP...


Hi well what's happening is that the "Protection circuitry" in the SMPSU has/is detecting a potentially catastrophic fault, and to stop a fire AND EXPLOSION OR INDEED BOTH, IS ATTEMPTING TO SHUT THE SET DOWN FOR SAFETY REASONS, HOWEVER AFTER IT SHUTS DOWN, THE "FAULT" APPEARS TO "GO" AND THEN THE SMPSU STARTS UP AGAIN , ONLY TO DETECT THE FAULT AND SO ON... USUALLY ENDLESSLY OR UNTIL COMPLETE FAILURE OCCURS.
What to do, well in all reality DIY is NOT feasible unless one has LOTS of experience, test gear, tools, isolation transformer, and a service manual. So, contact the local or head office from VIZO, ask them for a referral to an authorised service center, hopefully a local one? in any event, make face to face contact here and ONLY ask first for a "Quote" as to prospective costings and go from there, this way at least you can make up your mind as to repair or replace?

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

Power is there, but TV won't turn on


stored voltages are high no touching these circuts becuase they hold charges and alot of screws.
fualty capacitors you say after a while it stays on theres a full charge in the unit theres some type of discharging effect on the set after its off for a while. voltage goes to low or unstable after it is off for a while. your better off getting the service docs for this set if you want to diy..other wise get a tv tech to check it for you. hope this helps
