Vizio VO47L FHDTV10A wont turn on, logo goes from amber to white, tv clicks once and wont turn on. remote will try to turn the tv on. suggestions?

Friend gave me this tv for free because it wont turn on. said it was working just fine, then quit all of a sudden. when the power button is pressed on the remote, the vizio logo turns from amber to white, the tv clicks, and nothing else happens. im hoping its a simple and not to expensive fix because this tv is much nicer than the one i have been staring at for many years! help!!

    um, ok. can you go into a little more detail? i can tear an engine down, put it back together, have spare parts, and it will run better but i have never been inside a tv.

SOURCE: Vizio VX32L No Display and Can't Power Off

Old messages and bcipollina is gonna get to read this resonse twice; sorry-
If it just fails to turn on or ignores the remote, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself. 
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.

 
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.  
 
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.

BTW, from what I have read about Vizio, I think they are close relatives to iLo which was also sold by Wal-Mart.
Quality control anyone?

SOURCE: 46" LCQ VIZIO WON'T TURN ON ALL OF A SUDDED

For the 46" TV, it sounds like the main board is bad.

For the 50" Vizio: is the LED light on?

SOURCE: my vizio vx32l will not turn on. vizio logo will

The main board has failed. Replace the main board will fix the problem.

By the way, where did you buy the TV? If you have bought it from Costco then try to give them a call to see if it still under warranty.

Hope this will help.

The sp42a is a plasma tv not an lcd. check the psb voltages first then move onto the ymain and buffers.

Vizio VO47L FHDTV10A black screen no light


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
?
?Check the cables, connectors and connections.

Take it to a repair shop.

Tv wont turn on fuse is good


does the vizio logo light up orange ? If so and it doesnt turn white then the main board would be suspect. If the logo doesnt turn orange when its pluuged in then its the power board. You can get either board from www.tvrepairworld.com

Visio VP504 fhdtv10a - When I plug it in, it has an amber logo light and makes a click noise (like a relay). When I press the power button nothing happens.


These are problems gradually developed in TV over the years. You may have to look for any dry solder, change the capacitors that look 'puffy' and try.

Power is there, but TV won't turn on


stored voltages are high no touching these circuts becuase they hold charges and alot of screws.
fualty capacitors you say after a while it stays on theres a full charge in the unit theres some type of discharging effect on the set after its off for a while. voltage goes to low or unstable after it is off for a while. your better off getting the service docs for this set if you want to diy..other wise get a tv tech to check it for you. hope this helps
