Customer Question
The tv will onluly...

The tv will onluly turn on for a split second. Sometimes it works fine, other times it does this. Vizio 55"

Technician's Assistant: What Vizio model do you have? How old is it?

Its maybe...6 or 7 years old if that. I dont know what model it is other than a 55 inch "smart" tv

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

I would say so, it doesnt turn on. When it is on it works fine

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

No thanks

Its just the standard white power light, and the V shows on the screen for a split second, then it goes black and the power light slowly fades out
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 8 months ago
Its either a power or mainboard issue and one of those will likely need to be replaced,however have you rebooted the set? Unplug set from wallpower wait 5 mins replug back in?please do that if not thanks,let me know
