Thread: My vizio plasma tv exploded

    Default My vizio plasma tv exploded

    Any Vizio owners ever have this happen?

    Watching TV with the wife last night, then BANG..no more TV. It seriously sounded like a gun shot going off in the house, it was that loud. I've had it for 2 1/2 years and never had a problem with it. Can't find the Costco receipt and Vizio pretty much is useless when it comes to answers.

    I'll probably end up kicking it to the curb and getting a more reliable brand, but it sucks to have a TV for less than 3 years and have it blow up like that.

    Any thoughts?

    Exploded like the Kings. You must have been watching them! The TV can't take the one-sided play.

    Good Luck in your findings.

    I'm on my 4th Vizio, and it's experiencing the same problems as the first three I had them replace. Sometimes the damn thing turns on and there's sound but no picture. I wouldn't recommend this brand to anyone.

    I didn't. This is number 4, as in the 3rd one they've replaced after the first one I bought. I may be crazy, but I ain't stupid...

    My Sharp does the same thing from time to time. I have to turn it on & off a few times, and then it stays on.

    No problems with my 2 Samsungs though. One is LCD & the other is Plasma.

    How did you get your 3 replacements? Do you have the extended warranty? Vizio only seemed to care about the warranty I had, rather than having some sort of explanation for why the television they built doesn't work anymore.

    I have had one for about 4 months. I guess this is what I have to be looking forward too.
