I mentioned before that Johnny’s TV broke in the manner described in the thread here http://www.ecoustics.com/electronics/forum/home-video/590118.html:
- The screen has power, but it is blank/black/blueish.
- The “Vizio” lights up when the set is turned on.
- The set will not respond to any commands…i.e. changing channels, volume. Nor will it power off.
- There is no sound.
I did a search and found that a shop in Cincinnati, Ohio called Marc’s Electronics does this kind of repair work for a really reasonable rate. If you do a search in his eBay store for “repair Vizio” you’ll see details on what sort of service for what sort of symptoms. I pulled the main board, sent it in, and had it back in a week. Popped it back in and we were watching TV last night.
I’m way satisfied and recommend Marc’s to anyone with similar trouble.
