Question about Vizio VP322 32 in. Plasma TV
I have had this tv for one year and 13 days. tv will not power on. vizio light turns white then orange. does any one know what the problem is. is it the power board?
Could be the power board or the main board. You will know because its the capacitors that are most likely the cause. Vizio used the cheapest capacitor maker CAPXON, but to me its CRAPXON. The capacitors will have bulges on the top, and in some situations you will see they cracked open on the top. The capacitor degrades, creates hydrogen gas that escapes thru the top of the caps, which is good because it would explode if the hydrogen gas can't escape.
Cheapest solution is replace the bad caps with Japan or USA caps. They go for 50 cents a piece at electronics suppliers. Don't buy a used board because they too will have these bad caps and you will end up with the same problem down the road.
I learned my lesson, I fixed mine but I replaced only the bulge top caps, but there were about 60 more caps in my TV and they were all **** XON. Next time I am saving up to buy a SONY.
