You need to check the DC output voltages of the main power supply, you may have failed power supply or shorted inverter board that causes the power supply to go into shut down mode.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

My Vizio VX37L tv will not turn on. When I plug it in to the wall, the vizio light turns orange but pressing power does not turn the tv on.


Fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Visio light on front flashes on and off tv won't come on


Unplug your TV and then plug it back in, let it flash on and off without doing anything for 5 minutes or so and then turn it on. It does it once amonth or so for some reason.

Normally new screens run about 100.00 less than a new tv costs and then you have to get it installed! There is now easy way around it. You would be better off just to get a new one>

Have a Vizio VX37L that when it is turned the


HERE'S THE FIX: I just went through this with my Vizio VX37L. TV is stuck in RGB input. This is the fix.... TV is stuck in RGB input.
(option 1) Power on TV, and press the INPUT button repeatedly and rapidly until you can change to a different input, such as AV.
If that doesn't work, try:
(option 2) With the TV off, press and hold the INPUT button on the side of the TV for about 5 seconds. The TV should power on and the input list will appear. The TV will no longer be locked, and the INPUT button should function properly after that.

Option 2 worked for me!

Our Visio VX37L comes on with blue screen and "no signal" at top of screen, then turns off in about 5 seconds. Does not respond to any of the other buttons such as "input". Once off then will not come back...


Television was repaired under warranty. A new motherboard was installed but did not fix the problem. A new front panel assembly was installed and fixed the problem.

No Picture -- just a black screen on my vizio vx37L


Did you hear any pops before the screen went black?
You've tried completely discharging it? Disconnect everything off the TV, all cables and power.
Press and hold the power button on the TV for at least 20 seconds.
Let it sit, and in about an hour, plug just the power in (directly to the wall) and see if it comes on. There should be an indicator light, is it white or orange now? Was it a different color before?
Odds are it's a board, be it the main or a video, don't know for sure. If you can take the back of the TV off and see if there are any evident signs of damage, blown or swollen capacitors, burnt traces or resistors/diodes, etc.
