Any electronic device can have power issues. These can be caused by component failure inside the TV, power surges, or wiring problems in your home.
Power issues might need service or changing parts inside the TV. Before you attempt to use your warranty service or pay to have the TV restored, there are various fast methods you can use to get your TV working. These steps are swift and need no tools. With any luck, your TV will be working within minutes!
How Do You Know If Your TV Has A Power Issue?
Anytime the TV does not show a picture and is not playing any audio through the speakers, the TV probably has a power problem.
Most Vizio TVs have a power light in the lower-left corner of the TV. It lights up whenever the power button is pressed. It is common for the power indicator to light up then turn off after a few moments. The power light might still light up even if the rest of the TV is not on.
How To Fix Power Problems in 5 Easy Steps
1. Confirm The Display Is Not Showing An Image
If your TV shows a black screen, that doesn’t mean it’s not on. This could be a panel or a source problem rather than a problem with the power.
Press the MENU button on your remote or on the side of the TV. If the TV’s menu appears on the screen after pressing that button, then the TV is on and does not have a power problem. The black screen is more likely the result of a source issue, such as a problem with cable or satellite TV service.
2. Press The Power Button On The TV Instead Of The Remote
An issue with the remote might make you think there is a problem with the TV. It could be that the TV is working alright, but the remote is bad. Press the power button on the side of the TV to be sure if the problem is caused by the remote.
Users sometimes believe there are no buttons on Vizio TVs. Almost every Vizio TV produced in 2014 or later has a power button on the back of the TV, so it’s easy to miss.
Reach around the lower-left corner of the TV. The power button is on the back of the TV, and this might be exactly what you need to get your TV working.
TVs manufactured before 2014 will have an on/off button on the left or right side.
If this button works, then the problem is from the remote. You might just have to put new batteries, or there may be something blocking the IR sensor on the TV.
3. Power Cycle The TV
Power cycling can resolve a lot of unusual issues with Vizio TVs.
First, unplug the TV’s power cord from the power point and leave it unplugged. Then press and hold the power button on the TV for 10 seconds.
After you have held the button for 10 seconds, let go then try to power the TV on.
4. Re-seat The Power Cord
A detached power cord might be causing the problem. The power cord can be detached from most Vizio TVs. It can easily get disconnected by house pets or if the TV is moved while cleaning.
Disconnect the power cord from the back of the TV, reconnect it again, then test the TV.
5. Test The TV When Connected To A New Outlet
Confirm the TV is using a functioning wall outlet.
You always want to try to power the TV on using a second outlet. Test a new outlet even if other devices work in the first outlet.
Plug the TV’s power cord to a new outlet that you have not used before, then test the TV again. Don’t use a gush protector when using a new power outlet because these devices can sometimes be the origin of the problem.
If the TV works now, then it was the original outlet that was causing the problem all along.
Is The TV Working Now?
Hopefully, your TV is on after trying one of the above steps.
If your TV still isn’t working, then it has a problem that needs to be rectified. You might be able to have your TV repaired under warranty, so contact Vizio. Maybe the satellite dish has been tampered with, but you can have roof top services from a technician of Vizio. A technical support rep will explain what options you have to fix your TV.
