When it will not power-on what is the situation with the VIZIO light in the front of the set?what color is it please

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Not on
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 6 months ago

This is either a problem with the power-board or the mainboard what needs to be done is the power-board needs to be examined visually first then we move on from there once we know the condition of it,it may be that a board may need to be replaced is this something you think you can do yourself?I will provide all necessary info let me know

Visually the power board looks ok
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 6 months ago

Did you check all the elco capacitors on the board for leaking \ballooning\raised domed tops?if you do not know what these are let me know

THIS IS STILL A PROBLEM , THERE IS A LIGHT AT THE BOTTOM LEFT CORNER, WHEN YOU TRY TO TURN THE TV ON THE LIGHT WILL COME ON BRIGHT AND THEN SLOWLY DIM UNTIL IT GOES OFF, TV NEVER COMES ON , THE POWER BOARD TESTED OUT TO BE GOOD
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
THE LIGHT COLOR IS WHITE OR CLEAR
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 6 months ago

So you checked the capacitors ,vizios have plenty trouble with their main-boards so its likely this will need to be replaced so what you are saying is the Vizio light is white (normally ON)and it dims but does not go yellow is that correct?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
THAT IS CORRECT
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 6 months ago

Is there sound during the time its OFF?if no sound no pic and you press the menu button of the sets OWN REMOTE DOES THE MENU COME UP?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
no , nothing works at all
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 6 months ago

Can you replace the main-board yourself?I will provide more info,cost of board if available about $100

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I will try that
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 6 months ago

OK what you need to do is get the back off the set you will see the mainboard its the one with all the AV input connections attached like hdmi ,you need to retrieve the partnumber for this board found on a stickylabel or etched on the board and with this try www.shopjimmy.com if they do not have it google the part-number for suppliers

Let me know if you need more help

A positive rating at this point is welcome 3 to 5 stars with the rating bar of stars at the top of the page thank you,the site will then release a payment to me thanks again,note question remains open for 30 days

Different technician here. It looks like Anthony had to step out. I'm Dan, and I'd be happy to help from here! Do you still need help with the Vizio? If so, I need to know the part number of the power supply that is currently installed. Thanks!

Thank you.

The original power supply for this model is the XA6, and not the XA7. What was the part number on the original board?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 6 months ago

Yes, that's the XA6! The board you installed is not the correct one, as the XA7 is not a suitable substitute. You should return the board you purchased, and then locate one of these:

ADTVD3613XA5

ADTVE3613XA6

I really hope that answers your question! Let me know if you need anything else. Oh, and please take a second to rate the service I provided (there should be a 5-star scale on your page somewhere). Don't worry, that won't close your question and you can still respond back at any time.
