Question about Televison & Video
I'm pretty sure its the bad capacitors on the power supply board. They will look like this :
A good cap is totally flat on the top.
Anyways, many of these vizio TVs had bad caps from the factory and they took about 2 years to fail. If you read the values off the side of them and replace them with the exact same values (example 1000uf @ 25volt) then it should work good again.
You can purchase higher voltage caps, but make sure you get the 105 degree versions, and keep the uF rating the same.
Use a company like www.mouser.com, www.mcmelectronics.com, or www.jameco.com to get your caps, and you'll need a soldering iron, desoldering wick, and some solder to complete the job.
You can also complain to vizio and they might help you out. In my experience, they just send out a tech with another power board, same "potentially bad" caps on the new board.
Let me know how I can be of further assitance to you.
