Vizio P50HDM No Picture/No Sound

Vizio P50HDM died today, screen went black, no sound and power indicator light remained green. Turned it off and indicator light flashed amber/green. Unplugged from power for several minutes then reconnected power, cooling fans started, heard several clicks from within case, and then nothing. Green indicator light remained on. Suggestions?

    Problem with my 50" is that the power comes on; however, the screen does not always start up. Sometimes I can unplug the power, plug it back in, and then it starts up fine and works for the biggest part of the day even when I turn it off.

Replace the sustainer boards should correct this problem. New sustainer boards may cause red and green pixilation. If this happen, replace control board and TV is as good as new.

Your TV is a monitor only. That means it does not have a tuner inside for an antenna. You may try a VCR for a tuner and hook up the antenna to that. Good Luck

My vizio p50hdm tv has a solid green light indicating it is turned on but I have no picture or volume. What needs to be replaced? Thx

The Lifetime warranty is a fantsy as most of you help, You should check with the company before posting untrue statements. Nothing has a lifetime warranty so dont waste your time with flights of fancy.

My vizio p50hdm made a popping sound from the rear. Afterwards, the picture disappeared and tv screen was black (as if the power was off). Then within a minute the picture reappeared but looked real dull...

The z-sustain board is bad. One of the the heat sinks on the board is cool to the touch. These had LG circuit boards and the number on the sticker, on the board, was a good LG part number. The part numbers were 6871QZH044A.

Do a search on the internet with Google, Yahoo, or Ebay with this part number. The board unplugs and the new one plugs back up. Not an advanced technical repair. Unplug the set and take the back off and match the picture on Ebay with the one in your set. And especially match the part numer.

Sounds like the power suply went. I don't know that model off the top of my head, but you might find a replacement here

The LCD screen is dark with no sound or picture when turned on.

I had the same problem after having a Vizio for 2 and a half years. I left the room for a minute, i came back and the screen went black. There was still power to the unit and you could see that the back light was working, just no picture, no sound, and you couldn't use any of the buttons. The only way to turn it off was to unplug it. It would then start up, with the Vizio logo going from orange to white, and then do the same thing all over, no pic or sound.

HOW I FIXED MINE:Look through the back vents for a white light to make sure the backlight still works. I ordered a new "main PCB" from (you can also use This is the circuit board with all of the inputs on it (hdmi, cable, etc.) I opened it up, disconnected the old one, put in a new one and now it works fine. I used both serial numbers on the board to search for it online. It cost me $144 to do it, but that's better than $450 for a new TV. My tv is the vx32l hdtv10a. I hope that helps.

For me the part number was either (depending on the vendor) : 0171 2272 2174 or it was 3632 0212 0150. Check your circuit and see if any of those numbers match up.

It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Turn on the TV.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.
