Visio P50 HDM television

Visio has been difficult at best to help with service/parts for our 2 year old tv, so we have found through our local tv repair shop that we need 1 new board, #6871QYA039A. The technician is unsuccessful in ordering this part, and so are we. Visio themselves say they will not sell the part direct, and we must pay astronomical price to have someone visit. We may as well buy a new tv! What can we do? The television is out of warranty.

    Any luck anyone getting them repaired? I have the same TV, bought as "new" on e-bay, but it was NOT new. It died after just 6 weeks of use and now I have a $1,333.00 wall decoration. Visio has been no help and e-bay has been no help. Where does one get this main-board? Thanks! A2

    Hi, I have the same problem. August of 07 I bought the same TV, sold as "new" on E-bay by Always-On-Sale. It quit working after just 6 weeks. I found out from Visio that it was not new, but a "refurbished" Jan 06 model. Visio has been no help and neither has e-bay. Where can one get this main-board that seems to be the problem? I now have a $1,333.99 wall decoration. Thanks! A2

    I had the same *exact* problem with my P50 TV last fall, when it was
    just 18 months old and (of course) 6 months out of warranty. Visio
    Support was no help whatsoever, I even sent them several emails out of
    frustration when their support group in California could not get the
    replacement board. The support group was guessing I needed either a
    power board (~$300) OR a master board

    (~$400) or both, plus a $200 technician visit. I was willing to try
    it, but in 3 months they were never able to get either one. I then
    bought a new Panasonic 50" (great so far), and of course a few weeks
    later they called me to say they had the parts. So, I have a $2700
    piece-of-junk Visio (price in early 2006) sitting around that needs
    $800 or so in repairs!

    At least I can relax with the fact that my Panasonic has an extended
    warranty and hopefully a better supply of replacement parts should I
    ever need it!

    I had the pop of death 16 months into a vizio 50. Vizio was of no help. Found a local TV repair store and $750.00 (Master board) later it was working again. Now exactly 12 months later "POP" it died again. DO NOT REPAIR, DO NOT BUY A VIZIO. THEY TREAT YOU LIKE ----AND VERY HARD TO FIND SOMEONE TO REPAIR. REALLY NEED TO START A CLASS ACTION SUIT.

I still can view other channels however I think the Black Box will eventually catch up to all. Any Ideas on this problem? Mike form PA

Well, I have the same problem - I have a Vizio P50 HDM that died after 16 months of use (1 year warranty). I called Vizio and they gave me the number of their authorized service company. They told me that it was the YSUS board which would have to be replaced with the ZSUS board - $835.00 visit including parts. That was three months ago and they are still not here. This is a common problem - Do a Google search for the "Vizio Pop of Death". It seems most are not repairable and have to be replaced. Now I have a $2700 wall decoration. One idea might be to do a search on Ebay for the part number - More and more are showing up on Ebay from units with cracked screens - Good Luck. I was a component level TV tech for 20 years and will do this myself, probably with parts from Ebay. Some say they have had success taking it back to Costco or Sams, even after two years - If you got it at one of these stores, it wouldn't hurt to try.

    Visio 1080p screen went light


    Our Visio 42" flat screen TV did the same thing. It didn't happen that often but sometimes it would go darker or the sound would go off until I changed the channel or turned TV Off then back On. I contacted Visio through my warranty and they sent me a flash drive to install info on my TV. Did not fix the problems. A year later before warranty ended I contacted Visio again. They sent a huge box for me to pack my TV in to send to the warehouse where they fix everything. It took about 2 wks. to get it back. Worked fine for about 4 months and the problems continued. I will not buy another Visio TV. I found out that they had many problems with several models.

    I have a Visio LCD TV 2 years old not working -- i have a backlight but not screen


    about a year ago our visio tv started having lines going up and down from the bottom to the top. we called direct tv and they could not find anything wrong with the cable. the problem got better and then worse. finally we called the tv repair man and he said it was the monitor and that it cost more to replace the part than it does to buy a new tv. that means after about a year that we purchased it the tv monitor was bad. now what do we do?

    I HAVE PLASMA TV MYRICA P50-2.


    The link below is where you can get the information about how to buy Fujitsu television parts. I have no idea if they will sell to non contracted servicers. These sets are serviced mainly by board swapping. You can eaily buy boards that you think are defective, and they are not the fault. This is the gamble you will be taking when servicing these sets yourself.

    Vizio p50 hdm


    Sounds like a bad power supply. I have a GV42L 42" manufactured in march 2007. It works perfect except the screen has a fracture on it. The warranty is voided because we damaged the screen. I can sell this to somone who has a good screen but needs boards or speakers, etc. Or I will buy your tv that has a good screen but damaged boards in it.

    Mine did the same thing. Just happened to have a worthless Best Buy service contract. The tech came out and said that it was the power supply and or the fly back something or other. He then prodceeded to tell me that he could not get parts for my 2 year old tv. You might check with a local tv repair shop and get some estmates on replacing these 2 parts.but at 80-100 bucks and hour for labor....
