Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hello , my name is JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions so could you please send me a reply when you see this ?
Sorry got locked on another post while waiting for your reply , with you now , be right back
Did the tv quit while watching it or simply would not come on today ?Any electrical storm or power blackout in your area prior to this ?
Does the tv repeat this pattern , I mean you press the power button ,the light comes on and go out and you can repeat this indefinitely ?
O.k then you did not say what you tried so far but first thing ;
Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.Although i do not expect much out of this procedure , it has to be done to confirm that this problem can be cleared or not with a reset.If that does not do it then we are looking at internal problems with the tv.
let me know how that goes.
Ok then as I said , I did not expect much out of it but it had to be tried.
From your description and what I know about this model this looks very much like a defective main board .
how do you want to proceed from here ?Look into this yourself or the repair shop ?
Let me know and i will help you along if you wish to look into repairing this yourself ,otherwise i will give you the details and costs you could expect.
If you were to look into repairing this yourself then you would need to match your main board with one of the (4 versions made for this model ) main board at the link below and then if not in stock there , with that part number I could find it for you ;
You can see the main boards cost around $70 there .
If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $250 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .
If you need to find repair shops near you then look at the links below and enter your zip code ;www.tvrepairpros.comOr this one;http://www.tvrepairman.com
This will give you a list of repair shops in your area.You could give a call to different shops in your area to get an idea of their rates , it pays to shop around.
If that answers your question please do not forget to rate so i get paid for my time helping you and you can use the reply button before or after rating if you have other questions or need help , thank you
Well...cannot repair your tv from where I`m sitting and those vizio have only THAT procedure that can be tried.
If you are not willing to do this yourself then the repair shop is your next step .
There is just so much that I can do from where I`m sitting , I gave you my experience as a repairman and if you knew the main board was the problem then you should have all the experience you need to replace it yourself , did you know there was 4 versions of it or where to get it or part numbers ?
By the way , you asked your question in the middle of the night so that will cause some delay in the replies.
Again there is so much I can do from where I`m sitting beside giving you info on what is wrong and how to proceed towards arepair and costs expected etc.
Same thing done at home would`ve cost you $125 paid in advanced and repaired or not
Well there you go , you got confirmation and the guy just drummed up some business over the phone , I`d do the same if I was local !
Cannot do that here though can I ???
Not doing this because I have nothing to do today now
By the way , ask your guy to come over for free
No sarcasm intended here just pointed out the facts , anyway Use the link below if that is what you want ;
Do not rate anything , that will hinder that refund
