Vizio Flat Screen Repair

About: I am a teacher who enjoys environmentally responsible woodworking. Most evenings will find me in the shop working with my now 8 year old son Shay who is both my greatest helper and biggest fan.

Don't trash it, FIX IT!  If you are capable of taking the back off the TV you are capable of fixing it.  Check out the video description for where I sourced parts for the TV.

We have a 24" Vizio E24-C1 TV that is out of warranty. The network card isn't working. I bought a replacement card, but can't get the back of the TV off in order to replace the faulty card. We've removed all of the screws, but the frame appears to be glued or connected in some other manner, and we don't want to crack it. Any suggestions?

Find the seam and push a thin butterknife in between. Carefully slip the blade up or down and slightly twist when it gets tight from moving the blade.
You will hear a "snap", the clip within the seam has disengaged. Continue to work the full way around and TA-DAHH!!

I am tinkering with a VIZO E550i-AO. I replaced power supply and LEDs and now it gets lit up, but,(oops) I damaged the flat flexible ribbon strip on the screen. it is not ripped, but it is detached from the PCB. Now I get vertical lines on one side ( the other pcb from the damage,) and on the area where the detached ribbon is, no signal. I am willing to take the time, how do i reattach the ribbon strip? and the vertical lines? Thanx

Same with my vizio 70 E series. Blacks our and restarts intermittently. I call Vizio and they act like its news to them. Go on ebay and you can buy the 3 boards for these tvs under $30. Really you probably only need to replace the Power Board and possibly the Mother Board. $10 each if you catch a deal. I called to find out which board it is and the "tech support" acts like they never heard of this before. Losers. Typical. Anyway, $30 and that is your best cure. Just make sure you are buying parts that are New or Tested. And look at the feedback of the seller. It should be at least 99 on several hundred transactions or keep looking. Peace Yall and these sets are easy to fix. Once the back is off, its 5 min to replace all 3 boards. Videos on youtube too

we have a 70" e series Vizio. The picture is beautiful but while watching tv the picture goes black for a second & the sound stops then the picture & sound comes back on. This happens on all channels. Sometimes it is several times in an hour. Sometimes it won't happen for a couple of hours. Please let us know how to correct this issue.

A few years ago I bought a Vizio 32 inch which was working perfectly. A few days ago the picture sound went out. Now I have a TV with no picture or sound. Please help me out. I need to know what parts I need and the best place to get them
