    Sorry Chu3505 your discription of the problem doesn't make sense. Is this a major issue with all the Tuner Signal Boards or just mine? This doesn't match the company's response about a firmware problem and the TV is rebooting. They are saying it is not a hardware problem. Are they lying to me?

Yes. Sounds like the power supply is shot. However that being said do not be suprised if after changing the power supply you find that the main board is gone out as well. Take the cost of that board as well into consideration before repairing. My insignia did the same thing and parts alone were more than the set was new...fortunately mine was under warranty.

My TV powers up and shows the Vizio logo on the screen but why no video or backlight?


I had exactly the same problem with mine. Called for warranty repair, as it was only 3 months old. The repair person swapped out the motherboard, and it's been good for 2 years now.

My vizio VO47 L has a black screen and sound. I do get a light on the vizio logo on the front. I see no illumination coming out of the back of the unit. what is wrong?


Power Supply popped a cap and fried the metal resistor bank. Replace the cap C241 and solderer the resistor bank. Worked for two months then pop out again. This time the resistor bank burnt through. Bought a new power supply DPS-38cp-1a from ShopJimmi.com $56.00 Replace supply which lasted 1 year 1 day and the same thing happen. Same components. Got this TV free but its costing me time and money now.

Hey there, I have a 6 month old vizio 32" LCD 60hz


LCD inverter module may have encountered a failure. Most common is an electrolytic capacitor failing in the power supply. Examine the board to see if any of the caps have a bloated or raised top, they should not be swollen or leaky. If so find the replacement capacitor # on line and replace. You will require a modicum of soldering skills. You indicate the tv is 6 months old.
Return it for warranty service, do not open your tv or you will void your consumer warranty.

Vizio L32 stopped working.


I have seen this many times. The tv most likely has run its course. It could be the power supply or a lamp. Sounds more like a lamp, as you still have lights on your set. check around and get some prices on a lamp. you can have a local shop install it for you. or just replace the set.
