Televison & Video - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Hello Ernest, I'm going to think that you have a Vizio Smart TV; (only happens when using SmartCast?) In this case it is a variant to perform a Factory Reset, it is very likely that it will be restored to normality.
Anyway, you should check the Moden or Router (if you have it) connection does not seem to be the application, but as if it were connectivity problems because in Vizio SmartCast mode is included in the included applications.
I leave a link to follow the procedure to factory reset.

Open internal fuse or power supply failure

Insignia... | Answered 3 hours ago

I would assume the power board has a problem. A tech could possibly repair it without replacing the whole board.

There is something short inside the circuit board, may be a shorted transistor or so. Your TV need a through check up. Contact any service technician. Products powered by electricity should be serviced or repaired only by experienced professional technicians. Any attempt to service or repair the product by anyone else could result in serious injury or death. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock. Instead, contact the nearest service centre.

I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:


1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buyand try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in thisphoto.6_6_2012_6_16_25_pm.jpg6_6_2012_6_16_48_pm.jpg

remove the power to the TV (so unplug it from the power socket).
Then on the actual TV, hold the power button for 60 seconds then release.
Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the TV, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Are you using a universal or cable remote to turn it on? It should have a input select button on it. If it changes the tv, put it on COMP or COMPONENT If that don't work,depending on the model and year of the tv there should be some buttons either on the side edge or bottom edge or on the back. Find the input button and press it to get to the COMPONENT input. Your converter should be plugged into the same component inputs on the back of the tv. Yellow to yellow (video) red to red (right audio) and white to white (left audio) Good luck
