CSK&D Files Amended Complaint in Class Action Alleging Power Defect in Certain VIZIO Televisions
On December 15, 2021, CSK&D filed an amended complaint in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California in a class action against against VIZIO for alleged defects in in the following models of VIZIO LED and OLED televisions: OLED65-H1; OLED55-H1; P65Q9-H1; P65Q9-J01; P75Q9-J01; and P75Q9-H1.
The amended complaint alleges that VIZIO knowingly sold LED and OLED televisions that had a Power Defect, which causes the televisions to repeatedly power off without user input, or fail to power on when being left off for a long time. Users express frustration about their new LED or OLED televisions failing to function properly, with an unreliable power feature that causes the television to turn off at any given time. There is seemingly no fix for the Power Defect, and consumers have complained in a variety of online forums that complaints to VIZIO about the Power Defect have not been remedied. Plaintiff’s amended complaint alleges claims for violation of California and Pennsylvania state consumer protection statutes, breach of express and implied warranty, and an alternative claim for unjust enrichment. Plaintiffs seek compensatory, equitable and injunctive relief.
