Question about Vizio VP322 32 in. Plasma TV
Hello; I am John at J D Electronics in Poland, Maine. I have now
repaired 9 of this same model in my shop. The set may be dead always or
work intermittently. There are 2 versions of this piece of junk, but I
have only seen this one. They all have 2 capacitors that fail on the
power supply board just above that red chopper transformer. The are
labeled C233 and C234. These are 3300 ufd at 10 volts and 105 C temp
rating. You can buy these for about $1 each from Digi-Key Electronics plus shipping. There are some cautions worth
mentioning. Make sure the set has been unplugged for a day or more
before starting the disassembling. It is VERY important to keep the set
face down on a soft surface when doing ANY work on the set. This crappy
designed set has a glass faceplate that will fall down if you don't
have it face down when all the back screws are removed and it is very
hard to put it back into position if it falls. The bottom plastic
speaker strip has a million screws to remove both from the bottom edge. Then take out all the screws for the metal back and unplug
the speakers. The connector wires to the speakers will not just pull
off without you pressing on a side release pin for each of the 4 wire-
Stupid design again!. If you are not able to solder these parts in , you can send the board to me for $25 labor plus $10 return shipping and $4 for the parts ( or send your own). We accept only cash or USA postal MO. There is NO Warranty on this repair. It is a better than 80% chance this will fix your set. Call me at 207 998 5687 Good Luck! John

Hello everyone. i too have been working with this problem, i have just discovered a small green push button on the MAIN board right next to the CPU, the chip with the heatsink..
after 5 min the set would shut down like a timer shut off, i pushed the button
and the set came back on, i'm thinkin that there is a problem in the
'computer ' and the set ' thinks ' it's time to go off ??
anyway, after monkeyin with this buttin i can now get the set to stay on for as long as30 min..
try it and maybe we all can figure something out.
