Here is a question that we see often.

Question:

My vizio tv will not turn on after replacing power board. I still have no power to my tv after replacing the power board 3 times.

So your television stops working properly and you think it must be easy to fix, because you can buy boards on eBay, and you can watch YouTube videos. So you make a decision, you buy a board and you fit it, but the television still doesn't work! This is a classic case of the 'let's try replacing this' method of television repair and illustrates why it is a bad idea. It doesn't work for a number of reasons. To correctly diagnose issues, you need to know every board, what is does and every component on the board. You need to know which part has failed, replace the component, or replace the board. The parts you purchased off eBay were probably out of scrapped sets and not tested. The part your put in was dead when you put it in, so you just moved on to another guess at what might be the cause and replace a board that is fine. And so it goes on, you change all the boards and it still doesn't work. Did you notice the large print that says 'No Refunds, NO Returns'. This is to stop you sending your old one back and saying it didn't work, but the unscrupulous use it as an excuse to get money for selling items that may not work! The course to be a television engineer is 2 years full time education, take it to someone that knows how to diagnose and fix. It is by far the cheapest option. The part that failed might be a 20 cents fuse diode hard soldered to a board. They will charge you $2 parts and an hours labour.

So your problem isn't the power boards, unless they are all dead, but the boards connected to them.

How To Fix Power Problems in 5 Easy Steps

1. Verify The Display Is Not Showing An Image

If your TV shows a black screen that doesn't mean it's not on. This could be a panel or a source issue rather than a problem with the power.
Press the MENU button on your remote or on the side of the TV. If the TV's menu appears on the screen after pressing that button then the TV is on and does not have a power issue. The black screen is more likely the result of a source issue such as a problem with cable or satellite TV service.

2. Use The Power Button On The TV Instead Of The Remote

A problem with the remote might make you think there is a problem with the TV. It could be that the TV is working fine but the remote is faulty. Use the power button on the side of the TV determine if the problem is caused by the remote.
Users sometimes think there are no buttons on Vizio TVs. Nearly every Vizio TV manufactured in 2014 or later has a power button on the back of the TV so it's easy to miss.
Reach around the lower left corner of the TV. The power button is on the back of the TV and this might be just what you need to get your TV working.
TVs made before 2014 will have an on/off button on the left or right side.
If this button works then the problem is coming from the remote. You might just need new batteries or there may be something blocking the IR sensor on the TV.

3. Power Cycle The TV

Power cycling can solve a lot of odd problems with Vizio TVs.
First disconnect the TV's power cord from the power outlet and leave it unplugged. Then press and hold the power button on the TV for 10 seconds.
After you have held the button for 10 seconds, let go then try to power the TV on.

4. Re-seat The Power Cord

A loose power cord might be causing the problem. The power cord can be detached from most Vizio TVs. It can easily get disconnected by house pets or if the TV is moved while cleaning.
Unplug the power cord from the back of the TV, reconnect it again, then test the TV.

5. Test The TV When Connected To A New Outlet

Verify the TV is using a functioning wall outlet.
You always want to attempt to power the TV on using a second outlet. Test a new outlet even if other devices work in the first outlet.
Connect the TV's power cord to a new outlet that you have not used used yet then test the TV again. Don't use a surge protector when using a new power outlet because these devices can sometimes be the source of the problem.
If the TV works now then it was the original outlet that was causing the problem all along.

What causes vertical colored lines on a TV screen? When a TV is showing vertical colored lines, a loose wire cable in the TV might be the cause. If you knock on the back of the TV, the vertical colored lines MAY disappear temporarily. This is a sign that a cable is loose or the T-Con board is faulty.
