Hello,
I have googled alot and have got nothing. Although, I have read this site alot, and saw a good bit of info on this post, but dont know if it counts for my issue. I have a VP322, never had any issues at all, always perfect. Then the other night it just shuts off, even the little orange logo on the front is cut off. Changed plugs, power cables, nothing. Google and found this, saw like 3 caps that were a little dome like, replaced em, and Its still not working.

Although I did make one wierd discovery if it matters. Using an external wire meter, to see if a lines hot or not, I tested the board for what I could. Now, with the board completly hooked up, the entire primary side works, but not secondary. If i disconnect the 2 cables on the secondary side of the powersupply and retest, then it has voltage on that side. It seems the only way the whole board gets power, if i disconnect the 2 ribbon cables on the secondary side, leaving the red/blue main power cable plugged in.

EDIT: Plugging either of the connectors, other then the power supply, kills power to the secondary power on the power board, not just both

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thank you

Hello friends,
Following the instructions in this thread helped me to fix my vizio. THANK YOU!!! to all of the help found here. I replaced 5 capacitors on the ps board and it worked.

That being said, I bought a power supply from TRISTATE MODULE.
BIG MISTAKE!!!!
I placed the $70 board in my tv(using static protection) and no workie. So i called the place and they aggreed to ship the board back at their expense to test it and give a partial refund if it was bad. HMMMM
The next day, someone calls me back and lets me know that they would NOT pay for the shipping and that the guy I had talked to the day before should not have agreed to that. BTW, I have the whole chat session on my email. Oh well, lesson learned. So I went to the local electronics store, bought the correct capacitors and soldered them in. Works Great.

LESSON LEARNED= DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH TRISTATE MODULE !!!!!!!!
Again, thanks to all of the helpfull people on here........

Hello all.

I registered just to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Our TV did the on/off thing for a couple of weeks before it did not come on at all last Sunday. Just a week ago today.

Found this thread on Monday and we took the back off on Wednesday and placed our order the same day.

We ordered 1 1000uf 25v, 2 3300uf 16v, 2 1000uf 35v and 1 470uf 16v (we upped the volts on all) from Digikey on Wednesday, received them on Friday and replaced the capacitors today and now our TV is like spanking brand new!

All for $6.36 + shipping. The best $11 I've spend in a long time.

again, Thanks to EVERYBODY here. I never would have known what to do or had the courage to do it.

Got a VP322 to piece out, power board don't work.
post #97 of 204
Thanks for the heads up on the fix!! Knew about the potential problem a year in advance, so the week prior to Thanksgiving, when the tv struggled to turn on i purchased some 1000, 3300, & 470 uf capacitors from digikey. Black Friday the tv decided to kick the bucket, so i spent about 2 hours on the fix!! Replaced the 2 3300uf capacitors that were bulging, and it works like new again!!

Thanks,

Any success, Rick? I too had a blown fuse and replacing it caused other problems! There must be a short or something else going on. Anyone else replace the capacitors without success? What else to try???

I was having the same problem with my vp322. I opened the back to find the same issue that everyone else seems to be having. Bulging capacitors. I had 7 needing to be replaced so I went with a new power board instead. After installing the new board I had the yellow light and when power was turned on it turns white. I still have no picture. What am I missing?
post #100 of 204
I wish that I had found this forum before ordering a replacement kit from eBay. I paid $15 for 8 caps, from lcdalternatives.com. I replaced all 8 caps (although only 3 were visibly bad) from the problem area of the board, after experiencing all of the symptoms described here, but then one popped after 15-20 seconds. I triple-checked the polarity and specs on all of the caps, and they were all correct.

Assuming that I did everything correctly, does anyone have a suggestion for what may have caused this?

Thank you for this awesome thread!

If it was the correct value, and it popped that quickly, it sounds like it was installed with the polarity reversed.

I have a vizio 50" plasma that has gone dead and following the advice that I read, I removed the back and checked the capacitors. I found 9 that are bulging and they are all the same physical size. I think that they also are the same rating; 10V, 3300uF, 105*C, but 2 are hard to read. The board designations are: c227,c201,c202,c203,c271,c272,c281,c282, and c283. Can someone verify that these are all the same?

Will they be readable once you pull them out? If it's only two, I'd pull them out now and check them before you order new ones. Just make a note or color code which went where.

Bob, it sounds like the main board is bad, which can happen when the power supply goes. The main board is the one that everything plugs into like the HDMI, antenna etc. I just ran into this with another VP322. Fortunately the main boards are relatively cheap, I think I paid $35 for my last one on ebay. There's a part number on the board, it will look something like 0171-2271-2643. The last 4 digits vary and you want to make sure the last 4 digits are the same as the one you are replacing, the wrong part number will not fit physically (the jacks are in slightly different places).

Wish Vizio, Insignia, or some other major manufacturer would make a 32 in plasma again, but doesn't appear to be happening. So...if looking for a replacement model for this TV, what LCD would you recommend? Thinking LG 325300 LED may be good choice if locate version with IPS panel. Will research LCD forum. If only Samsung or LG would make their 450/350 plasmas in 32 inch size, that would be my choice. The 42 in will not fit her entertainment shelf, and she doesn't want to remodel bedroom wall. And Vizio doesn't appear to make plasmas at all anymore.

Understandable hypothesis, but incorrect. I do not know for sure what caused the cap to pop, but it was not the polarity. I replaced the new cap with original and got the TV working! Thank you to all for this thread, again!

What I can advise is that the first time around, I overlooked plugging the speakers back in and also did not screw everything back in. When I turned the TV on, the volume went all the way down all by itself before the cap popped. This really makes me think it was a short circuit somewhere. I replaced the cap, plugged the speakers in, and carefully screwed in all of the screws back in before turning on the TV and it worked like a charm.

In the end, I fixed my TV for $15 and couldn't be happier. Thank you all!

I have the 50" also and the same 9 are bad on mine. They all appear (and i moved them around enough and was able to spot the #'s on them) that ehey're the 3300 uf 10 v capacitors referenced a bunch on this forum. I'm ordering mine now...ordering 10 just in case I ruin one!

Replacing the 9 capacitors did the trick. My set is now working fine. They were all the same size-3300uF, 10V. I truly thank all who posted directions.

Hey all, thanks for this great thread!

I have a 42" visio plasma that may have the same issue. When you plug it in the amber visio light turns on, but does not ever turn white. Also, the unit never turns on and there is no sound.

Last week I dropped the TV off to a local repair place and they said that the power supply was bad, and that they could not fix it. To replace, it would cost $450 for a new board or $250 for a used board they said.

Does the problem I am having based on the vizio light sound like the same thing you guys are having with the 32"? I read through the whole thread, and there was mention of the light not coming on, but I just needed to confirm.

Thank you in advance!
post #110 of 204
The repair place is being pretty pushy about it, so i get the sense that they are trying to take advantage..

You could also price a power supply board on eBay.

First - awesome site!!!!

Based on all the great posts here, I have removed my power supply and identified the bulging capacitors. However, I am unable to decipher what part numbers I need. I am going to take the power supply to a repair shop for installation of the 4 bad caps - I just need to know what I have to order from Digikey. The photo is not my pwrsup, but I have circled the bad caps. Any help would be greatly appreciated....

The Digikey part numbers are shown above. Why not just order online? Click the links.
post #116 of 204
The part numbers you have provided only match 2 of the caps I need: 3300uF/10V
How do I go about finding the other 2?:
100uF/450v & 450uF/10v

Please bear with me as I have no experience with such things....
post #117 of 204
please dis-regard the my previous post at 11:44am

OK - I got it now - this is what I need:
I'll assume General Purpose Electrolytic Capacitors for all???? Panasonic has 4 types...
450uF 10v - qty 1 (spacing? dimension?)
3300uF 10V - qty 2 (spacing? dimension?)

I'm a musician, not an electrical engineer kinda guy, so any details will be greatly appreciated

Hey guys, I have a vizio vp322 that I purchased from Walmart about 3 yrs ago. Have never had any problems with this set until last night. While watching tv all of a sudden the screen went black and no sound. The VIZIO at the bottom remained white. I turned the tv off and then back on and the VIZIO at the bottom lit up white and remained white. There was a light sounding click a few seconds after turning on but the VIZIO still remains lit up white. I had been reading about the capacitors so today when I got home from work I took of the back and check all capacitors and they all looked good. No bulges or leakages. I don't understand what happened because there was no POP sound or anything that makes any sense. I honestly thought someone had sat on the remote. I get nothing from the remote except to turn on tv. No menu options, a/v, dvd,etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If the lead spacing is correct it should be ok. If not, this should be the correct one from Digi-Key.
