SOURCE: VIZIO 50" PLASMA
The power supply in these sets have had bad electrolytic capacitors which short and actually blow their top because of increased pressure. Only part of the switching power supply is now running so you may see a power light but nothing else. I am not sure what Vizio would charge to replace the cap or supply. If this is the case, we would charge for 1 hour labor ($120.00) and for the capacitor ($3-4.00)unless the manufacturer recommends replacement of the power supply. Hope this helps you.

Don't replace anything, Vizio has issued a lifetime warranty for this set because of this problem. No joke, call the customer service line and tell them you got the pop of death. They'll send someone out to 'repair' the set free of charge. If they can't fix it they'll give you a new one. Even if your mfg purchase warranty has expired. Call them and post the results. I've been fixing TV's longer than I care to admit and this is the first time I've actually seen a company stand behind their products like this. I bought a broken tv with the intent of fixing it and after replacing almost every board I could only manage to get the vertical racing stripe line, except mine was purple. I put it all back together and called to find out if there was a recall on this set and within 5 minutes the (Actual English speaking) gentleman told me to sit tight and he'd have a repairman come and do his thing. He did, and long story short, he couldn't fix it. Last week they delivered a new TV to replace this one. I was shocked. I think Vizio will have all my future business.

This same thing happened in my 32 in vizio and vizio paid an HDTV tech to come out to my house to fix it. He says he ALWAYS gets calls on vizios and this same thing is always the problem. He said Vizio paid more money for the screws on the tv then they did the power board in the tv. You want to either have someone fix it or buy a new power board and fix it yourself. It took the tech 15 min from start to finish to fix my tv and he had drove 2 hours to get here.
