No power I had the tv for 4+, years with no problems whatsoever. last week, while watching, I heard a series of pops followed by a strange smell, and loss of picture and the green light went out. will not power up now. I assume the power supply went out, would it be more conomical to fix or buy a new tv?

I also have this television and the power just went out. But, before there was a smell. I did not hear the pops. The television is 3 years old.

What do you suggest. What could be the problem. It appears that others have had this problem.

Tv picture went out


Sorry bad news these TV's work off of lights that shine thru the back of the screen if you heard a pop it was the power board that turns on those lights not an easy fix sorry.

Last night I heard a loud pop sound come from my computer and then it shut down. I tried to start up the computer but it didn't turn on. None of the fans turned on either so I concluded something is wrong...


Yes, and the power supply needs replacing.
4 screws hold the power supply to the cabinet or case these are usually located outside visible at the fan vents at the four corners.

Was watching my vizio and i heard a pop and the screen went blank, but there still is sound, its about 4 years old can it be fixed and ballpark on how much it would cost to fix!


Main Power Supply issue! The repair would cost you more than what a new flat panel would cost you. Vizio is a Chinese made TV. Only lasting 3.5 to 4 years. Go out and buy yourself a new Christmas gift a new flat screen TV. Try to get a name brand one like Sony, Samsung or Panasonic. They have great service records. Vizio is your typical breaks, throw it away.

I have a KDF 42WE655..while watching tv, I heard a popping sound.


If the lamp is blowing that soon, the cooling fan is not working, or is plugged with dust. I have heard some people have a filter that needs changing or cleaning. Check your manual. The cooling fan is on the optical block and not easy to get to.
Probably a job for a tech.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off


I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

Nothing happens. power on,can hear click


I had the same problem, but I saw the events leading to it. I was watching TV, went to help the wife, heard a pop, came back to find the TV off. Turned it on, heard the same click you described. I believe you need a new bulb. Mine lasted around 2 years of heavy use. Bought two on ebay. Make sure to consult your manual for the particulars on the bulb.

No Power


Your set is going into high voltage shut down. Might have been the high voltage transformer that has gone bad.
