31-7465 , As long as you arent blind anyone can look at the old part and tell which way the new parts go in , In other words , Line up the NEG side of the cap,side with stipe to the mark on the pcb , Takes longer to get the TV apart than it does to change the 2 caps,All I used was a pin point soldering iron and needed to modify the outer housing or could've left it off

If you don't have real good soldering skill I would advise you don't try it. they are hard to change and have to be put in in a particular direction "polarity" one wrong thing and you will smoke the board. But if you try ... any electronic parts supply has the caps ie Radio Shack

Tv won't power on

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.

Tv automatically shuts off after being on for a few seconds EWL20S5

The most common problem for this set that will cause shutdown after a few seconds is the inverter board. Looking at the set from the back, it is the long slim board that is normally located on the far left side of most lcd tv's. There are 3 electrolytic capacitors located on this board, and changing them will fix a lot of these sets for this problem. The location numbers of the caps are c330, c350, and c370. If you have any experience working on electronics, I would start by changing these caps. They are very inexpensive. If you would rather just change the inverter board, try That is a good place to buy boards for flat screen tvs.

I fixed three of these TV's, one a few days ago.
All three sets had two bad capacitors.
The caps are on the main board towards the front of the set, on the left side.
One cap is 2200uf 16v, and is located inside of a "U" shaped heatsink. The other cap is 330UF 16V, and is outside of the heatsink, to the left of the heatsink. Both caps will look bulged on the top. You can probably get these caps at radio shack for a few dollars. I buy my parts from Mouser electronics.
If you can see that the caps are visually bad, then replacing them will probably fix the set.
Good luck,

Scott LCD won't turn on with remote or with on button

Do not shut off the TV. Put cardboard in front of screen when not watching.
The power serge when the TV is turned on puts a stress on the caps (ac to dc volts) .
Continued off -on weakens the caps until failure.
