Hi clslawns,



Does the unit take a few mins/hour before it will turned off. Does the symptom happened recently or just for now. Does the led light flashes/blinking? Let me know to assist you further.

    Hi,


    This is an indication of out-of-regulation in the power supply section. This was caused by leaky/dried electrolytic capacitor in
    that section. It will drop the supply from normal voltage and
    will disable the unit.It needs a little warm-up to make itself stable but the
    symptom will get worst like what you've experienced right now. Sometimes it has a bulged/dome at the top but not all, it is better
    that you have a capacitor
    checker/tester
    to determine
    its condition. Your unit will back to normal again if the leaky capacitor is
    isolated.



    If you don't have necessary tools
    and test instruments
    , and can't do the job yourself, I would advice you to
    look for a professional to troubleshoot the problem. Don't
    attempt to work in the power supply if you don't know the safety precaution of handling it, there some stored
    electricity enough to hurt you with a little mistake only.


    Another option is to find a shop that will repair the power supply board only, no need to send the entire unit since the affected parts is the capacitor only. It will save you some money for service fee.


    Also check if your unit is under warranty /extended warranty,
    avail it because the manufacturer of your unit will fix it for free. Don't open
    the back panel, this will void the warranty.



    Hope I helped you.


    Have a nice day!

Turned itself off. I turned it back on and the green power light blinks for awhile then blinks red for awhile.no picture or sound


Get rid of this TV. Had one and replaced the bulb and light engine many times. Just buy a Samsung or Vizio 50+ inch instead and be very happy. Those Panasonic projection TV's were terrible. You will find a 50 inch Vizio for around $500 bucks and it will blow your mind how great the picture looks.

Once you turn the vizio 50 plazma vphdtv10a off it wont turn back on after it cools of if you keep turning on and off for 30 min it will come on and stay on until you shut it off and let it cool off


I have a 32inch vizio that kept going off. the company said remove it completly from all power,wait 30 seconds,push the on button for 15 seconds.plug back in and it should work.
Mine worked at first then it quit completly and the company did not return any of my e-mails. probably cause it is past the warrenty(they only warrent for 12 months)A friend of mine had the same problem, neither one of us will ever buy a vizio again and I tell everyone I know about this problem.

TV keeps shutting on and off on it's own. I have a Vizio 32 inch


Unplug the TV. Then press and hold the power on button on the tv for about 60-90 seconds and then release. The vizio logo on the frame will blink for a min. and then turns off. Then plug it back and turn on. If this doesn't resolve you got a lemon.

I was watching tv and it went to an all black the vizio logo still lights up but just a black screen and it wont turn off or any thing else


Unplugging it will surely turn it off. Keep it out for awhile and then plug it back in. See what happens then?

Did you somehow lost your signa input to it?

Maybe it had a hardware/software hangup - like a computer freezing. I hope it gets better?
