Question about Vizio E322ar

2 Answers

Vizio e322-ar turns on, displays VIA logo, then turns itself back off.

We turned the tv off with remote, went back an hour later to turn it on and all it will do is display the VIA logo in the middle of the screen for a few seconds, then the screen goes black and the tv turns off. Even the logo backlight on the tv body itself turns off. Then that little logo light comes back on. We tried unplugging the tv and replugging it back in, we checked all the wires coming out of the back. Nothing is loose, nobody touched the tv during that time frame. Fresh batteries in the remote. Everything results in the same - the tv won't start up.

    Ours died about the same time. I wonder if they broke these tvs with a system update. it is almost like it tries to boot but can't. I could be they "bricked" the TVs. Let's do a class action suit against Vizio! :) Seriously ... I will search for some technician reset codes. There must be a way to restart a system update.

    Just got my vizio with this problem fixed for free, out of warranty. Call tech support and tell them that your tv was stuck on the vizio logo. They will have you power cycle it, which won't work but just go with it anyway. Eventually they will say that the problem is a result of a failed system update and that you need a new mainboard and will have someone sent to fix it.

    My E322AR just died tonight! Less than two years old. When I unplug it than plug it back in the vizio logo lights up for a few seconds and then fades to black! R.I.P. I guess?

Usually when a TV fails to turn on properly a lamp will flash a number of times which with the correct info guides you in the direction of the fault.

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: VIZIO TV Black screen. Cannot turn off TV without unplugging.

I had a similar 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. I didnt hear an arcing sound though. 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. I would check the ceramic fuse first on the board that gets power from the plug.

HOW I FIXED MINE: I ordered a new "main PCB" from tigerdirectparts.com (you can also use searspartsdirect.com). 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.

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

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 tigerdirectparts.com (you can also use searspartsdirect.com). 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.

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.

For the cheap guy like me who will probably do more harm than good:
Also check for the F3 Fuse on that same main input board. It is located in the upper right corner. Hard wired fuses; very small. You will see F1-F4 (F4 is empty). You can solder a replacement fuse right over it. I would recommend piggybacking the fuse with a fuse you can replace. Will need the holder and a new fuse. 6 bucks.
Doesn't solve problem, but I can go another 2 1/2 years and the wife won't blame me for screwing up the TV in the first place.

My samsung tv wont get past the logo screen on startup. It will seem like it is going to but the recycles and starts all over.


On some models this reset may work, disconnect TV from outlet, press and hold the power button on the TV itself for about 30 seconds. Wait a minute, plug the set back in and press power button once.
Hope this helps cuz I don't know otherwise..but thought i'd share.

When I turn my LG BD270 on, the disp;ay keeps scrolling "Hello" and the TV screen flashes an LG logo screen. What could the problem be?


Is your LG unit new, or have you had it some time? If the later, it could be capacitor failure, which can cause all kinds of issues. I had an LG DVD HDD recorder which had a similar problem, except the LG logo didn't flash on screen. Does your unit have a hard disk? The prblem with mine was that the machine would not boot. Eventually, even th date display went, and it would not start. Replacing a bank of capapcitors solved he problem. I didn't have the equipment, but a repair engineer did it for £25in less than an hour.

The standby power supply resistors on the inverter board have changed values. You will replace resistors R1217, (820K 1/4 watt), R1218,(820K 1/4 watt) and R1219 (390K 1/4 watt). Please use the values just mentioned. Or you may have the inverter board replaced. Take this note to a TV repair Tech.Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!
