Question about Vizio L32 32 in. LCD HDTV

No power at all

My L32 hdtv doesn't turn on when plugged to a power supply at all.  I removed the back panel portion of the t.v.  Power is present going to a "circuit board" located at the top right portion, however there are 2 plugs that connect that "circuit board" to another one located in the middle portion of t.v (this is the one that the AC plug is located).  I checked the small glass fuse, and that was O.K.  Any ideas on what could be the problem.  Maybe a burnt capacitor or something.

    Mine will not turn on. Not by remote or hard mount power button. It worked fine without any issues for several months. Then two hours after the last use, it would not turn on. No power light or any sign of life. I checked power at the TV end of the cable, that was fine.

    My VIZIO L32 HDTV stopped suddenly and does not turn on. I checked the cord. I also removed power cord for 5 minutes and then connected to power as per the suggestion of VIZIO technical team. The power in my VIZIO HDTV is still not coming. My TV is less than two years old and purchased fron SAM'S CLUB. I woul appreciate your suggestion.

I have the same set.. power light on front stays yellow (standby). first thing im going to check are the mainboard (one in the middle) fuses.. these are very tiny and are rightbelow the right plug where the power comes in. they are labeled f3, etc. and are tiny and white. looks like one says 3 amp and one is 2 amp. if one of these are open then the main board will not recieve the proper voltages to turn on the set when the power button is pressed.

Vizio e390vl standby and on status good no picture.

The power supply must provide 12V as well as 5V. Your power supply module may be damaged. did you measure the voltages in circuit or after disconnecting the circuits. When no load is present, the power supply outputs must show 12.5 V and 5.3V. You will need to replace the power supply module if these voltages are not present. The main board may not have been the problem in the first place.

Tv won't turn no the vizio logo only blinks


That problem is 2 causes,its either power supply or system board.
This are some D.I.Y procedure for troubleshooting.

  1. Open the back cover by removing all screws at the back.
  2. Try to look at the power supply board and find the leak/bulge on top capacitors.If you found,replace it with the same type and ratings.
  3. If the power supply doesn't have any leak capacitors.Try to power it ON to perform voltage checking.
  4. Check the output voltage of power supply such as 5vdc,12vdc and 24vdc by using voltmeter.If this 3 supplies having a voltage drop or flickering voltage while on power ON.Check the following parts on the power supply,change value/open resistor,shorted transistor and diode or repeat step # 2.
  5. When the output voltage is stable and all parts looks OK.The problem could be on system board.Unfortunately the system board or main board is not for D.I.Y because the parts inside is very logic and very sensitive.That is replaceable.

Thank you and good luck.

Television turned off and wont come back on

If theres no lightrs then your power supply unit is shot and you will need to get a new one. try going to a tv surplus store or a place like best buy and asking for the part first get the model number of the power supply this is the thing that all the cables in your tv are plugged into. hope this helps

Pluged up but wont come on

Does power indicator lit if tv plugs in?
This will confirm that power outlet is fine and tv getting power through ac cord.
Does power indicator blinks?
If it is blinking that means tv got some internal circuit problem that could be defective power supply board or bad back light inverter board.
Visual check by local tv repair shop would be good to rectify what board need to be replaced to fix the problem.

Wont turn on. Was working great then started turning itself off. Now will not come on at all.

Check power supply for domed electrolytic capacitors or the ballast circuits or the power supply by spraying the IC's with freon.

I have a vizio L32 manufactured in 2005 - Won't turn on

Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.

If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

32" visio tv tripping power throughout the house

I would have an electrician check to see if you have a grounding issue. Especially at the outlet that you have the power strip supply plugged in, Check to see what kind of your circuit panel is going to trip for electrical arc or electrical short. Newer panels should have both. Older just for electrical short. Have your electrician make sure your wiring is entirely copper, if it isn't and it's aluminum. Have him make sure the outlets are aluminum rated, and not designed for copper. Defintely check grounding. Good Luck
