Replacing a Vizio Backlight Inverter

We purchased our 42in Vizio LCD FHDTV a couple years ago. Today, it started to "fizzle" (flashing slightly) then would shut off. The sound continues, just the screen went black. We are thinking that the backlight inverter board may need to be replaced. The part number is: LC420WU 6632L-0481A. We found a couple retailers online who are selling parts from broken TVs and one retailer from China who is selling the board new. Does anyone have any suggestions or information that could confirm that our thoughts on the issue being the backlight inverter board? Also, if anyone has any a suggestion on where to purchase this piece? Thanks!

I have a television that did this. The picture went out but it continued to have sound. It was the projector bulb. I ordered from a dealer on ebay, very resonably priced. It came with instructions on how to install it and was a very easy fix.

That is exactly what it is. Mine, as well, (1yr and 4mos old) went out. But my sound, eventually, went out as well. However, I was lucky and had the two year warranty and it was covered. Apparently this is an issue. The fella's that picked up the TV made the remark that "this is another one".

Backlight Fizzle


Look at the power supply first for bad caps, the transistors for back light inverter may have been damaged also when the caps went out. See example of failed monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Display problem


If the laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk is spinning and the hard disk LED is flashing then the hard disk is OK.
Then the fault could be a faulty video cable or connector or CCFL lamp or inverter.
Try reseating the video cable/connector that connects to the motherboard first.
If this doesn't work then to determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Vizio GV42L LCD TV screen black when turn TV on first time


If you are using a set top box this might be caused by turnig the box on at the same tie as you turn the tv on or slightly after you turn the tv on.  If you are using compnent or HDMI inputs the set needs to see the signal as it is turned on to know what formt the signal is in.
