Question about Vizio Televison & Video

1 Answer

Upper right quadrant of my Vizio TV is dark!

I have a Vizio model number E500i-B1. The upper right quadrant is dark I replaced all of the LED strips and it's still dark! YouTube videos suggest that it could be the driver board but when I take the back off the videos don't match the back of my TV any suggestions?

This model had issues with cold solder connections going from the power to LED driver board, I think you will see the issues once you remove the power supply, the 2 boards plug directly into each other, its the power supply plug that gives issues

    A replacement power supply should fix it but if you know someone that knows how to solder it can easily be repaired for almost nothing

Vizio E500i-b1 went dark, any ideas on what to check next?

You can change boards in your TV all day and it's most likely no going to fix this set. Have you ever had a set of miniature Christmas lights that seemed to work great then all a sudden none would light, either because a bulb burned out or fell out? There are 2 types of electrical circuit wirings, one is series the other parallel. In series like your LED backlights are wired in your TV there are about 8 button lamps per circuit that have a 24 volt DC supply serving each set as this TV has what's called local dimming, one of the lamps has opened up making that set not light up, the power supply has over voltage and over current protection for each supply if one lamp opens up they all go out and this is exactly what's happened in your TV, the power supply safety circuit is non discretional, if it detects an error it shuts down the entire backlight circuit giving you no backlights. As far as a break down on what fails 5% of the times it's the main board 5% its the power board and the other 90% of no backlight failures on this model TV comes from the backlights being bad. You can change just the one bad strip if you wish but it's advised to change them all. Good luck!

E70-E3 dark quadrants of the screen.

I'd give you a 90% chance of bad LED backlights. There have been some issues with LED drivers but most the time it's the backlights, Vizio does things a bit different than other brands, most sets if a strip goes bad the entire set is dark but vizio drives each string separately so it's possible to have sections dark on the screen

I have a Vizio TV E500i-B1 and the screen is black when powered on. I have sound and able to see images with a flashlight. what do I need to do to fix it?

You have lost your backlights, look at the inverter board if its a LCD or with LED the power supply that supplies the voltage for the lamps

My vizio will not turn on. The light on the bottom flashes on and off, but nothing on the screen. I replaced the main board. It worked for several days then went right back this issue.

Have just looked on you tube , I typed in fix for VIZIO E500i -B1 power off and a 2.24 minute video appeared . if that does not solve your problem type the product info and fault again and check the videos that pop up . hope this info is of use to you....
