Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have a 32" vizio. It now will not turn on. Pushing the power button does turn on the power, making the power icon turn from orange to white. The screen will flash a couple times , as if something is about to show up on screen, but nothing...No pic, no sound. It also will not power back down unless it is unplugged? I am very handy at fixing things. Is there anything I can do? No buttons on the side of the tv will work once it is powered up....

Right now the 5vdc standby power supply section is working, but the rest may not be working, check to see if you do have 24vdc feeding the backlight inverter board and no bad caps, if not, try disconnecting the power cable to the inverter to see if you get the 24vdc back. The TV should come on without the inverter connected, you will get sound but no picture, then you can try to repair or replace the inverter board. Unless the you may have problems with the main board, but you need to check all the voltages and signals first.

The main board is what processes the Power on and power off as well as vidio output. You may have gotten a bad replacement main board as that mode is famous for main boards with eprom issues which will cause the symptoms you describe.

Solutions (2) Best Solution That little fella is only turned off by unplugging it. If all those little lights in America could be turned off we could do with one less nuclear power plant. If unplugging it is not an option, my wife's solution is to cover it with a piece of black tape.

remove all screws on the back of the tv, carefully pull off back cover. you will see two circuit boards one on the left (Power) and one on the right (Video) on the Video board there is a small plug on the right side with a yellow, white and red wire going into a small white connector. the red wire is what controls the orange light on the front. now that the plug is pulled turn it over and you should see a small white plastic piece that holds each metal connector on the end of the wires in. pry this piece of plastic up for the red wire and pull at the same time, the wire will come out of the connector. now tape the metal connector with electrical tape and tuck it behind something or tape it to the chassis. plug your connector back in. put the rear cover back on. now your tv will only show the vizio logo in white when you have the power on. If you wish to disable the logo for both orange and white just disconnect the white plug completely.

Vizio 42 inch plasma. When you turn it on, the icon flashes orange to white with no picture.


The last one I had with this symptom had bad capacitors in the power supply. The were bubbled up a bit. Check yours and change them out and you could be good to go.
Good luck!

Vizio VX32L The screen goes white,no response from buttons


G'Day!

Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.


I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

32 inch vizio will not turn back on, just stays orange in front


Try unplugging the tv and holding down the power button for 30 seconds than pluuging it back in and if it does not come back on the tv will need a repair to the power supply, just call tech support and make sure to have the serial number and the reciet handy so they can get you registered on the support system. Hopefully your tv is still under the one year mark than the repair will be free if not it can get expensive fast. Me personnaly have worked for vizio for about a year now and honestly this is a very common problem with theses tv's.
