I have the same issue on my Vizio M470NV. I called Vizio and they told me it is a self diagnostic test that is shutting down the TV automatically to protect it. They said they are working on fixing the issue with a firmware update that will be pushed out automatically if you are connected to the internet. No ETA given on when that would happen. I called them on the 3/14/11 and my TV is still shutting down randomly.

Had this problem recently after a power flicker during a storm. Thankfully, after a few minutes everything returned to normal. Found this solution to another problem that may be helpful.

Resetting TV Firmware.
Unplug all cables.
Hold the Power Button on the left side in for 30 seconds.
It will take about 45 mins for the unit to reset.

Vizio M470NV M-series vizio light on orange will not to white tv does't come on change the power board. same problem. whats the problem?


Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Vizio logo blinks orange/white for a minute then stops blinking. TV never comes on.


If there was a power surge, a power supply component may have failed.

My Vizio VX37L HDTV won't turn on. Was watching it one day & it turned off by itself. Replaced power supply with new one with no luck. Orange light comes on but will not turn white.


reset the tv with the tv off, but plugged in hold down the soarce botton on the tv for 5 seconds it should click on and work. if not then there may be curcuit board issues. i found the same tv on the side of the road as somewone was throwing it out, it was leaning aganst their trash can. i brought it home. plugged it in and it went on and inediatly went to the orange vizio light. i rest it and it's been perfect ever since is my comoute monitor now...good luck i hope that fixes it for you..

The tv is powering down when flashing. Hold the power button down for thirty seconds, this will shut the power down completely. \do this after you unplug it. than plug it back in. it will still blink but only for a few seconds then you should be able to turn the tv on

Vizio m470nv will not come on, logo blinks orange to white.


It may not be the caps at all, a lot of the new LED Back-Lit TV have faulty LEDs. They short and pull down the power supply, and to a novice it will seem like a bad power supply. That means that you must replace the bad LED's in that particular LED strip before you can fix the problem. Not an easy repair for a rookie.

Video board failure vizio M470NV


Vizio M470NV is an economy class LED TV made by Sharp for Vizio.

The main board in it suffers from a few problems that are actually common for the Vizio LED TVs made by Sharp and based on the same design and built with the same pool of components.

It took time to TV repair shops, but now repair services and possibly even exchange boards are starting to become available.

See here for more details:

Hope it helps!

I will be watching my vizio m470nv and it will shut off and the vizio sign will blink repeatedly from orange to white.


I hope you get a response. I am having the same issue. It turned off on my this morning @ 0600 and then after getting home from work I was cooking dinner and was wondering who turned the TV off. It did it again.
Then it happened about three hours after that. I wish I knew what the problem was!
