    it worked fine for while until i turned it off and then back on again.

    I am having the exact same problem. I turned it off on day and now it will not come back on. The amber light is on but no luck with power. I've tried the buttons on the unit and the remote.

    I have been having the same problem. My TV turned off randomly one day and ever since it has been acting vey weird. I would unplug the cable in the back for a couple of minutes and sometimes the amber light would come back. But now there is no amber light and the TV will not turn on at all.

    I have the same problem. The yellow power light is on but when you try to turn it on, the green light does not come on nor does anything happen. It's like a dead tv. Any suggestions to fix this problem? Is it not fixable? Should I junk it?

I have an aspire one laptop and a video convertor.

Are you connecting the svga out of the laptop to hdmi of tv via a converter? This set should have an svga input on it. try connecting this directly to svga on computer. Computers and converters and hdmi inputs on tvs are always a challenge. Newer laptops have hdmi outputs on them and are seem to work better.

No power, will not turn on

You might be able to locate some capacitors in the power supply section and replace them. I'm not a Vizio expert but caps don't cost much and if you can use a soldering iron, it's worth a try before you decide to do something brash like throw it out.
