    yes, there was a pop and it turn off after that and after unpluging for 24 hours it sounds like it is going to turn on, it shows flashes but it just goes dead again.

Was there a pop noise before this happened or is there anything flashing at all?

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 problem the capacitors will be fairly cheap and depending on your skills, the labor may be too but capacitors are dangerous and only a qualified person should replace them.

Please let me know if you see anything else that may help figure out what is wrong, thanks

    Since there was a pop, then I believe your capacitors need to be replaced. Only do it yourself if you know how dangerous they are and how to handle them correctly. Only an experienced person should replace them. They shouldn't cost too much and can be obtained at a local Radio Shack. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, thanks

By "shows it's on", do you mean that there's a green led on, or something?
That happens on my HDTV. I think it means it's in standby mode. To fix it, I just press the "source select" or "video" button on my remote/tv, and it turns on.
Good luck!

    so that it can make a reset..

  • dewan nafees ahmed May 04, 2008

    huf.. i think the problem is with the power board sir.. am sure with it.. its due to some faulty component in the board..
    wi am i saying tat?
    bcz after u leave it for 24 hrs and turn on.. it seems to come on and then it again goes off.. bcz circuit goes stable after a long time.. but again when the component is strained it goes off..

    so if u r comfortable with tech things then u can open the set and look for faulty components..

    good luck
