Vizio 42 inch tv Power Not working

I just got the vizio 42 inch tv i pluged it in and for a minute and a half it worked then it went off. There is no power at all not even the name display in the front , no standby either. I called Vizio and they told me that it may be a power supply problem but they were not very helpfull. I wanted to know what i could do to try and solve this problem .If that means opening the back of the LCD so be it but i am not sure what to look for i can not find any spcs for this tv that show me what to do . I hope to hear from you soon thanks My wife bought a 42" Vizio from Wal-Mart on 01SEPT08--today is 07DEC08 so the Wal-Mart 90 return policy expired 6 days ago. Last night, right in the middle of a movie..."click", no power...no lights...nothing. I had to unplug the tv, plug it back in and turn the power back on. Power lasted for about an hour and a half and then same thing. Today, Sunday...same thing. Called Vizio Tech Support during their hours of operation and got a voice message telling me to call back during the hours I was already calling. Emailed Tech Support, contacted BBB after reading all of these forums...What does it take to get a class-action lawsuit? This is not how business is supposed to be conducted in this country. Imagine if you did your job with such disregard to customer service. Any ideas out there?

Sound is pinned at 100% output. Remote nor physical buttons on device are working.


If any of the buttons on the remote or tv work, then try going into the menu and turning the sound down manually.

Have a dark band horizontally across vizio tv. Appears to be a backlight, but not sure how to fix


Could be a bad CCFL lamp, if the set usess CCFL back-light system. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

My sony wega kf-50E200A tv keeps turning off. during each cycle the green light blinks 42 times and the tv comes on again for about 3 minutes and it happens all over again


More than likely the power supply is defective, but without testing and the repair manual that is just a guess, you make the decision to replace or repair the TV.
