Vizio m650vse: powers then it turns and shows the vizio logo then it shuts off.

From what I've seen on a lot of these TVs you have a bad capacitor on the power board. If you you are confident and have the skill and tools, you should be able to fix it yourself. Remove the rear panel and near where the power cord comes into the unit, you should see a grade b/c board. Usually tan or brown in color. Sometime you can see the capacitor has swollen or leaked and that makes it easier to know which one it is. Other times you will need a meter that can measure capacitance to figure out which one is bad. E Bay can be your friend when trying to locate replacement power boards if all you want to do is a swap on them.

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.
